SOTON University gets new HR software
The University of Southampton (SOTON) has acquired a new software system to enable a more effective management of human resources (HR) and payroll, Personneltoday.com reports.

Northgate HR has signed a five-year deal with the higher-education institute worth £560,000 for its ResourceLink HR, payroll and pensions software.

As a result managers at the university will find it easier to administer areas such as absence, training requests and holiday, as well as viewing and authorising changes to employee records - making the management of their teams more efficient.

Moreover, the 5,000 strong workforce will now be able to access and maintain their personal records and view important forms such as their payslips through the new software.

Tony Strike, director of HR at the University of Southampton, said: "Our aim is to help improve processes and reduce administration so HR staff can concentrate on recruiting and retaining the best staff and students to make sure we are the university of choice."

The HR and payroll system currently being used at SOTON will be replaced by the Northgate HR system in August 2007.
