"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 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 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."
