A Dedicated Team

To ensure a seamless service and to allow matters to be addressed consistently, we provide you with dedicated named EPM contacts, with named emails and direct dial numbers, who have specific responsibility for your school. This ensures that your EPM contacts fully understand all the terms and conditions in relation to your school and any day-to-day working practices.

Agile, Flexible and Comprehensive Reporting

Our reporting suite provides you with extensive information on your employees, which can be downloaded and tailored to your exact needs. Reports include previous pay comparison reports, payroll variance data and Gender Pay Gap reporting.

Automation to Minimise Errors

Our extensive experience has enabled us to develop automated systems and processes to save you time and minimise the scope for error, such as:

  • Pension bandings automatically assessed in line with your school policy
  • Automated continuous service increments
  • Automated alerts on the portal identifying upcoming contract changes for the term such as temporary appointments, hours and allowances that are due to end

Dedicated Pensions Team

Our dedicated Pensions Team works in a strategic capacity to keep abreast of pension reform changes. We work closely with Teachers’ Pensions, over 60 Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS) and the Pensions & Software Suppliers Engagement Group (PSSEG). This ensures we are at the forefront of pension reform changes, and that our systems are compliant and up-to-date with the most recent pension requirements.

ePayslip Portal

Our ePayslip portal provides your employees with instant access to their payslips and P60 information as soon as they are available each month, regardless of holiday periods or non-working days.
