Reaseheath College iTrent HR and Payroll software


Leading specialist education institution Reaseheath College has gone live with iTrent, MidlandHR’s complete web solution for talent management, workforce planning, HR and payroll.

The college signed a five-year contract for all iTrent modules and HR and Payroll have been successfully implemented. The remaining modules, including Self-Service, Recruitment and Learning Events, will go live in a phased approach that is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

“Our primary objective was to improve business processes and drive efficiency through the college,” explains Katrina Turner, HR officer at Reaseheath College. “Having previously used separate HR and payroll systems, we needed an integrated system to streamline processes and centralise information. Our previous payroll system itself was extremely inefficient and involved the input of new starters and changes into five separate screens, which, with over 500 members of staff, was extremely time-consuming!“With core HR and Payroll modules implemented, iTrent has already streamlined work practices in just three months by simply updating one single system, saving a great amount of administration time and effort. By storing all documents electronically within iTrent, we’ve also been able to significantly reduce paper flows as well as standardising and speeding up processing time. We’re looking forward to further efficiencies once Self-Service and holiday planning are phased in over the next few months.”

Iain Moffat, MidlandHR’s managing director explains: "With its easy-to-use interface, iTrent provides a highly configurable solution for institutions like Reaseheath, where multi-platform systems clearly fail to provide the integration, efficiency and visibility of information required to enable strategic workforce management and best practice processing. Once the remaining modules are implemented over the next few months, MidlandHR and iTrent will truly support the college’s strategic workforce decision-making to drive organisational performance and transform the HR and payroll function, delivering significant value for the college.

"MidlandHR currently support some of the largest and most successful colleges and universities around the UK and we are proud to see this continue through our partnership with Reaseheath College.”
