Stress-free industry-specific pension management
With inbuilt statutory calculations, iTrent can provide reporting to bodies such as Teachers’ Pensions and Local Government Pension Schemes.
We also provide a Pension Data Service, which looks after your data and prepares it for submitting. We do the hard work while you keep control of the submission – ensuring you never miss a deadline.
Our partnership with iSAMS Management Information System (MIS) delivers an integration that saves HR teams time with automated data exchange across the iTrent and iSAMS systems.
People information is only created once and any updates to existing information are captured within both systems, reducing admin.
This significantly removes the need for data duplication and improves accuracy and expenses, ensuring data transparency.
“MHR has an excellent reputation for delivering effective software and payroll services to the education sector and we’re excited about the implementation of iTrent, and the efficiencies it will generate. Bringing our HR and payroll back in house will give us greater control of our people, while new streamlined processes will make us more efficient and free up valuable resource to focus on what we do best, delivering quality education which enables our pupils to reach their full potential.”
Shaw Education Trust
"We wanted a software provider that was flexible and able to deal with lots of different scenarios and situations. We were confident it was the right solution."
Leigh Academies Trust
“MHR has helped us to save both time and money – benefiting us as an organisation and our people. We are extremely pleased with their input into our transformational project, and will continue to work with MHR on new releases to influence future development. We have reduced the amount of paper produced by the team, and also the number of days taken to produce contracts." Rachel White, Head of HR
Henry Boot Plc
“We would be floundering without the strategic review. MHR are not just a system provider, there’s much more to offer... The service is even more valuable than the product and, in my opinion, it should be bundled in for every customer. It’s really good as a health check to make sure you’re working with iTrent in the best way."
