Truro and Penwith College streamlines its HR and payroll with web-enabled technology

Truro and Penwith College has implemented its web-enabled HR and payroll solution to deliver a deliver a more joined-up service for employees and allow staff to concentrate on supporting students.

The college is working with NorthgateArinso to implement the platform for its 1,000 staff, which will provide a more efficient and flexible back-office service for HR and payroll.

The platform, known as ResourceLink Aurora, will be delivered via the web and it is hoped the system will produce significant savings by reducing paper flow and duplication of data.

From an IT perspective, the college is able to deploy the solution through a web browser, using web technologies. This will ease the day-to-day management and open up the opportunity for greater accessibility from home.

The solution allows processes to be streamlined and personalised to an employee's role or task. It puts information at the fingertips of each person in the HR and finance team, giving them the tools and data needed to do their jobs. Managers and staff members will be able to interact with HR and have their own self-service view of the information they need, wherever they go.

Andy Goodman, project manager for Truro and Penwith College, said: "We have ambitious plans and we're keen to make use of the web-enabled technologies to drive forward our HR and payroll strategy. We will be able to streamline our working practices, bringing payroll and HR information together so that it can be used efficiently and intelligently on one platform."
