British Transport Police signs £655,000 payroll solution deal with MidlandHR

British Transport Police has signed a contract worth £655,000 for a hosted, flexible, auditable payroll solution from MidlandHR.

Using MidlandHR’s system, the law enforcement agency will for the first time be able to view its workforce on one system and compile detailed HR reports – vital in terms of implementing important security profiles on individual employees.  

Martin Onley, project manager for British Transport Police, said: “Our current payroll system does not offer a great amount of flexibility and is resistant to change.

“In future we are looking to take on self-service and potentially absence management modules, as well as partner with MidlandHR in integrating this system with our central NSPIS HR solution, which is used by many other police services across the UK,” he said.

The new system is due to go live in January 2007 for 1,000 of the British Transport Police’s staff, including all civilian employees and senior officers.

It will be rolled out to the remaining 3,000 police officers in April 2007.

Lawrence Knowles, managing director at MidlandHR, said: “This goes to show that organisations are increasingly looking for partners that can offer them a flexible service matched specifically to individual needs that will grow and change with them.”
