The school payroll and academy payroll business is facing a number of major changes in the next few years. The first of those is almost upon us and is the introduction of LGPS 2014 in tandem with Auto Enrolment that will be affecting many more.

Responding we have developed a new portal, VERA, to even better serve  the needs of our customers. VERA has functionality beyond its predecessor ePaysafe and introduces

  • Employee centric view of payroll data
  • Comprehensive drill down features
  • A new pensions area with all things TP and LGPS at your fingertips
  • A new finance area with all of your journals, departmental splits and the like 
  • An HR area holding all of your contractual and other information about your employees
  • Streamlined electronic processes for making changes to your school payroll
  • Absence tracking imrpoving both payroll and absence management monitoring for your school

VERA makes her first appearance in February, more details to follow
