Historic builders merchants partners with MHR for digital transformation

A Hampshire-based builders merchant has partnered with Nottingham HR and payroll company, MHR, to undertake a digital transformation of its processes to support its future growth.

Established over 175 years ago, Elliott Brothers has invested in MHR’s cloud-based HR and payroll solution iTrent as part of a project to replace outdated manual systems with new digital processes, supported by a fully managed payroll service.

The new system, which goes live in February 2020, will centralise the company’s core people processes in a single integrated system, enabling Elliott Brothers’ to simplify the management of its 320 employees located across 13 branches, with all tasks administered from a single source.

Significant time and cost savings are expected to be achieved through a more streamlined payroll process, with employees able to submit their timesheets via a dedicated self-service portal to their managers.

Elliott Brothers will also adopt MHR’s HR chatbot, a virtual assistant which will empower employees to gain answers to common HR queries, make holiday requests, submit expenses, view payslips and update personal information from their smartphones.
