New HR and payroll system to unite 2,800 workers
MidlandHR has announced that Coventry University will be using iTrent to power its HR and payroll systems.
The new platform will aim to bring together data from the 2,800 employees working at the University. It is hoped this will enable self service and web recruitment facilities at the University, which is based in the centre of Coventry.
The payroll aspect of the platform is expected to be fully operational by April 2009, with the remaining functionalities being added at a later date.
Wendy Taylor, project manager, from Coventry University, said: “The University determined there was a sound business case for an improved HR and payroll system to maximise efficiency through the use of workflow and self service, and a need for excellent information on the University’s main resource: its staff.”
Coventry University was previously using MidlandHR’s Millennium platform, which had been in place since 1993. The University did go out to tender for the contract, but settled on MidlandHR as its iTrent system is entirely web-based. Of all the platforms considered, the University felt iTrent was the most technologically advanced.
Lawrence Knowles, managing director of Midland HR, said: “We have had an excellent relationship with the University since they first became a customer of ours in 1993, and this was key to understanding their requirements. We are therefore delighted that we can continue to work with them, and optimise iTrent’s market leading capabilities to suit their individual requirements.”
Midland HR was formed in 1984 and has offers HR management software and services to customers including Zavvi, TK Maxx, Edinburgh City Council and Cambridge University.
