Carval Computing has been selected by Mossbourne Community Academy to provide Payroll and HR software. As well as providing in-house Payroll processing and HR functionality, Carval’s HR Unity will enable Mossbourne Community Academy to comply with new pensions and auto-enrolment legislation. Initially, for its 260 employees, the Academy plans to use the system to accommodate additional staff numbers, as new schools are set up under its ambitious expansion plans.
Carval was selected for its fully integrated Payroll and HR software as well as for its Self-Service facility. The Academy will roll out the Payroll first. This will be followed by the HR module, with the Self-Service functionality going live by beginning of May. The integrated HR and Payroll features will reduce data duplication, saving time and helping to provide more accurate reports.
Richard Dearing, Director of Finance at Mossbourne Academy said, “We needed a new system as our existing processes didn’t have the flexibility to meet legislation changes, particularly with our expansion plans. Carval’s solution did a lot more than other systems that we looked at. We liked the Self-Service aspect and the integrated nature of Payroll and HR, which will save us time and reduce rekeying errors.
“The HR functionality is important in helping us to comply with legislation, including safeguarding children, and for our workforce census return to the Department for Education. We were impressed with the range and flexibility of HR Unity for day-to-day monitoring and the recruitment of staff. The Self-Service option will help us streamline staff absence and we will be able to produce significantly improved reports to our Senior Leadership Team and Board of Governors.”
John Ovington, Sales and Support Director at Carval Computing said, “Mossbourne Academy is one of an increasing number of education sector organisations turning to Carval to help streamline workforce management. The need for an integrated HR & Payroll solution is even more important than ever due to fast changing legislation, advances in technology and growth challenges in this rapidly changing and dynamic sector. Throughout every aspect of employment, HR and Payroll departments rely on integrated data for accurate information, sharing of data between the departments, streamlining workflow and increased efficiency.”
