Account Management

Enjoy your own dedicated team.

We currently manage over 1,500 schools, 500 academies and 100 MATs and each one has their own dedicated account management team.

From training new members of staff to advising on the different structures available for the set-up of multi-academy trust (MAT) payrolls, your team will guide you as you change or grow.

Our clients tell us  how important it is that we understand their local authority and pension rules and regulations. Because we work only with education sector payrolls, we understand this and will tailor our support to meet your specific requirements.

One of their key strengths has been their ability to listen and learn and continually improve the service they provide. Their account management team is very responsive and they are able to produce bespoke reports in a very timely and efficient manner.
