1610 has grown to become one of the largest providers of leisure facilities in Somerset, Dorset and North Devon. To keep pace, the Trust needed a modern HR and payroll system that could replace paper-based processes and provide accurate, up-to-date information in a single location.
"Distributing payslips is much easier and quicker. We no longer have paper flowing around the office, it is simply the click of a button and everything is completed digitally."
Enita Andrews > HR Manager > 1610
“When using multiple spreadsheets there is always some degree of inaccuracy over the data as it is manually inputted, meaning there is more margin for human error and greater chance of the information being out-of-date quickly. It can also mean that simple tasks, such as supplying requested information can take hours to find.”
The trust wanted software from a company that had experience within the not-for-profit (NFP) and leisure sectors, as well as extensive knowledge of legislative changes such as pension auto enrolment. The ability to manage complex staff contracts was also a key factor for them during the selection process.
OpenPeople has streamlined the pension administration; now, rather than needing to wait for an outsourced accountant to send back the information, the Trust is able to run a report that extracts the details from payroll and automatically populates a spreadsheet. This is then uploaded online to the pension administrator.
