Simplify and automate payroll

Payroll Software Solutions

From P45s to pensions, we can help you automate and streamline your payroll

Bring a new standard of accuracy, visibility and flexibility to your payroll

People expect to be paid accurately and on time, but there’s far more to payroll than simply processing salaries.

With MHR’s market-leading payroll software, iTrent, you can transform your processes using automation to maximise your organisation's efficiency, reduce admin and remain compliant with the latest legislation. You can choose to use our software in-house for your team to manage, outsource it to our team of payroll experts, or you can choose a combination of the two – it is up to you.

Say goodbye to manual processes and human error and let us help you save time and money.

We can help you with:

  • Finding a solution for your organisation regardless of your company size or the complexity of your payroll

  • In-house payroll, outsourced payroll or a combination of both – whatever you need

  • Improving your data accuracy with automated processes to reduce human error and minimise risk
