HR and Payroll Systems for the Education Sector

Choosing between HR and Payroll systems can be a daunting task for any organisation, but possibly more so for organisations in sectors such as Education where requirements can be highly individual and no ‘off-the-shelf’ solution appears to fit.

IRIS FMP HR & Payroll Software a division of IRIS FMP (UK) Limited has 35 years’ experience within the HR and Payroll industry with particular expertise in a number of vertical sectors, including Education. To date IRIS FMP HR & Payroll Software has almost 80 clients within the education sector consisting of colleges, schools and universities.

So why are IRIS FMP’s HR and Payroll systems so effective for clients in the Education sector?

Whilst there are a number of reasons, perhaps the biggest is the flexibility of the IRIS FMP Amity system. Although Amity is packed with standard features and can be provided as an ‘out of the box’ solution to meet the vast majority of your HR and Payroll needs, we recognise that clients requirements are rarely the same and many organisations have very individual requirements to meet the specific needs of their business. Our Amity software has been developed with this in mind and there are practically no limits to the amount of configuration that can be applied to the system to achieve a completely flexible system without the costly bespoke programming so often associated with software. What’s more with some training we can teach you how to make these types of changes to the Amity system should they be required in the future. Any changes made are not affected by upgrades to the software.

Self Service is also an area where Amity excels. A familiar interface which is intuitive and easy-to-use, allows you to give responsibility for the updating of employee information to the employee themselves. Employees will have access to the data held about them and can view and update their own personal details as and when required, freeing up your time to concentrate on the more strategic areas of your business.

Self Service functionality will also give you the ability to provide your employees with online/electronic payslips, allowing your organisation to save time and reduce costs by giving your employees access to both their current and historical payslips online.

Expenses can also be managed through our Self Service system, again removing the paper trail and assisting in time-saving by automating the authorisation process. Once approved expenses are ready for seamless transfer to payroll.

Our modular yet fully integrated HR and payroll system operates from a single database meaning that duplication of data into two systems is thing of the past. The system will also give you the ability to produce both HESA (Higher Education) and SIR (Further Education) reports/returns.

Amity Payroll is accredited to the PAYE Recognition Scheme which has replaced the previous HMRC Accreditation scheme, giving you the peace of mind that the software complies with all current legislation and your employees will be paid accurately and on time, all of the time. Similarly, Amity HR will provide you with all of the tools that you need to transform the HR role into a proactive business focused function.
