The University of Southampton has awarded Northgate HR a five-year £560,000 contract for its ResourceLink integrated HR, payroll and pensions solution to improve operations.
ResourceLink will modernise current HR, payroll and pension administration processes at Southampton, when it replaces the university’s ageing HR and payroll system in August 2007.
In addition to the core system, the university will also benefit from the provision of distributed system access, manager and employee self service, single data entry and enhanced reporting.
The university’s 5,000-plus employees will have access to the system to maintain personal records and view forms such as their payslips.
Managers will be able to manage their teams by viewing and authorising changes to the employee’s records, as well as administering areas such as holiday, absence and training requests.
Tony Strike, Southampton director of HR, said, “We hope to forge a genuine partnership with Northgate HR to increase the strategic impact of HR at the university. Our aim is to help improve processes and reduce administration so HR staff can concentrate on recruiting and retaining the best staff and students.”
