NHS Expenses cloud technology used by 67% of NHS employees
Software Europe has announced that its most-recent customer win brings the number of NHS organisations now using its cloud technology to 200.
Over 67% of NHS employees in England and Wales are using its leading cloud technology to manage expenses, employee relations, and workforce.
NHS customer Sue Childerstone, head of payroll at Northumbria Healthcare Trust, said: “Previously, our validation for expense claims was done manually - that was the main reason to moving the cloud.
“We had upwards of 5,000 claimants per month that were all on paper.
Now, with Software Europe’s Expenses product, there is less risk of errors and missed payments due to lost pieces of paper - rules are built in to the solution so there is an audit trail.”
She added: “We provide payroll services for many other organisations throughout NHS - we always mention that Software Europe’s Expenses system is available to them and try to recommend moving to a cloud-based system and away from paper.”
The company has boosted its NHS credentials with its Employee Relations cloud solution, ER-Tracker, which records and monitors all activity relating to ER cases such as long-term sickness, grievance, and disciplinary.
Increased numbers of NHS organisations are turning to ER Tracker to help take control of long-term sickness cases to deliver compliant and consistent outcomes for employees, and improving the productivity and efficiency of HR teams.
“We are so pleased to announce we now have 200 individual NHS customers using our cloud technology”, said Deborah Saunby, sales and marketing director at Software Europe.
“There’s an ongoing myth that the health service, and the wider public sector, are slow to adopt and use new cloud technologies.
“Our own experience shows that in reality the NHS is leading the way in adopting technologies that can help identify savings and efficiencies along with supporting the move towards a paperless NHS.”
