Implementation and Training

We have never missed a pay day.

Making sure your staff continue to get paid accurately and on time, in order that all eyes remain focused on teaching, is paramount.

Throughout the transition you will be supported by a dedicated account manager and implementation team. All are education specialists who know your local authority and specific pension scheme requirements.

We will collect data from your previous provider using our education specific data capture methodology and set up your payroll on our powerful online portal.

Unlimited test runs will be carried out at no extra cost until all parties are satisfied that the payroll is correct. Finally, the team will make sure your staff are fully trained and confident on how to use the payroll portal, run reports. We will do this remotely or at your school, depending on what you think is best.

Despite only having a 4-week turnaround all members of staff were successfully paid.
