Six NHS trusts in the Manchester area have gone live with a timesheet system from Smart covering 20,000 staff.
Bolton, Salford and Trafford Mental Health NHS Trust; Stockport NHS Foundation Trust; Salford Royal Hospital NHS Trust; South Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust; Christie Hospital NHS Trust; and Manchester Primary Care Trust have all implemented Smart Timesheet.
The system enables secure entry of timesheet data for approval and submission to the national Electronic Staff Records (ESR) payroll system, which has also been implemented in all six trusts.
Using Microsoft .net and SQL Server technology, Smart Timesheet enables optimised deployment across each trust’s intranet, removing the need for a desktop installed application.
Using a secure login, administrators are presented with a simplified view of a list of staff and the appropriate payroll elements that need to be keyed in.
Once the data is entered, it is electronically approved by the line manager responsible for the appropriate staff groups. A key benefit is that the information can go through a second level of approval before being posted into the ESR payroll system.
