Care charity Together Trust has overhauled its digital infrastructure by moving its payroll and human resources functions to the cloud.

The North West of England based charity has ditched its paper and spreadsheet-based systems in favour of a cloud based set up.

Payroll and human resources software firm MHR has carried out the revamp with the charity adopting its iTrent cloud based system.

This will see a number of tasks such as payroll become automated and will help the charity more easily gain an insight into the organisation and help with staff development.

“With a workforce of over 900 people that continues to grow, it has become clear that we need to replace our manual, paper-based systems and spreadsheets to improve efficiency across our organisation,” said Together Trust Director of Resources Brian White.

“In addition to the time and cost savings of automating our payroll process, we are excited to see the impact the wellbeing and engagement benefits that self-service will offer employees across the organisation.”

Move will improve speed and accuracy

MHR Chief Executive Anton Roe added: “We are delighted to have a new partner in Together Trust as it looks to bring its payroll and human resources processes right up to date.

“By adopting more digital methods of working, Together Trust will benefit from faster and more accurate processes, while transferring certain tasks to self-service will empower its employees to take more ownership of their work, improving engagement and productivity”.

The Together Trust provides care, special education and community support to children, young people and adults. Each year it supports more than 2,600 people and their families. This includes working with people who have emotional, behavioural and social difficulties as well as those with physical and mental disabilities or autistic spectrum conditions.
