Our cloud-hosted HR and payroll software means you can store all your employee records and documents in one central secure location. Ensuring you stay on top of compliance and data protection rules as well as reducing admin and repetitive data entry for your HR and payroll teams.
We can help you reduce the risk to your organisation.

Teachers' Pensions are changing and from April 2022, MCR will be the only way to submit service, salary, and contributions information.
With inbuilt statutory calculations, iTrent can provide reporting to bodies such as Teachers' Pensions, Local Government Pension Schemes and the Scottish Public Pensions Agency.
In addition, our Pension Data Service can support you with the 103 data requirements needed to be submitted and help you smoothly transition to the new scheme.
