Multi Academy Trust - Payroll and HR services

Without doubt Multi Academy Trusts continue to grow and will be a dominant force in Education going forward. The level of centralisation and cost sharing within these trusts does vary significantly with some operating as a central services function while others operate at strategic levels only.

However, from a payroll perspective the introduction of MAT’s creates a number of opportunities for implementing standardised solutions and making available new features not previously available in a payroll solution. 

We have been working with a number of MAT over the years and the benefits we can deliver to a MAT are as follows:

  • Standardised input
  • smartFORMS via our HR dashboard VERA - use data you hold to simplify processes
  • Central review and approval - using smartFORMS
  • Standard and consistent reporting MAT wide
  • Personal relationships – named contacts and small teams
  • Group access user access 
  • Global reporting - regular and ad hoc reports
  • Salary statement creation for review via VERA
  • HR interface 
  • Absence Management tracking
  • HR Interrogation
  • Global employee payslip view
  • ePayslips - branded solultion using Smartphone App
  • Employee self-service
  • External Audit – SSAE16
  • CIPP approved for PQP, PASS accreditation
  • ISO accreditation 9001 and 27001
