Payslips can be an emotive item. They're often targeted by snoopers who might want to see what colleagues earn. And for staff based at home, there's the added delay and expense of sending individual payslips to the residential address. Moving to electronic payslips immediately solves these problems.

Legal aid practitioners will know all about the Legal Aid Agency’s new online client and cost management system (CCMS) which will become mandatory from 1st February 2016 as the sole route for requesting legal aid on customers’ behalf, managing cases, applying for payments on account and submitting bills. Our new system allows users to pull together all the information required by CCMS and upload straight to the CCMS portal.
We can officially label our 2015 charitable efforts a resounding success. We raised, sponsored and donated monies to the tune of £9,300 for the 12-month period. Of this, £750 was pledged by our staff for monthly dress-down days; £7,700 originated from our three major fundraising activities; the remaining £850 was spent on sponsoring fundraising events of others.
Large-scale flooding across the North over recent weeks has been estimated to cost the UK economy circa £5bn. And it’s not over yet. The Met Office currently has 153 flood alerts, 61 flood warnings and 2 severe flood warnings in operation. The storms have left devastated communities and ruined businesses in their wake. However, hosted software and outsourced services can provide adequate protection from flooding-instigated destruction.
We love it when our clients say nice things about us. In our latest glowing reference site, Adam Cheal at Fletcher Longstaff explains his reasons for outsourcing his cashiering function, why he chose our Pinpoint service, and the advantages now afforded with our back-up and cloud-accessed software. Amongst the many benefits include ambitious business growth plans for 2016.
