As an alternative to in-house payroll, Frontier Software Payroll Services offers a choice of payroll processing arrangements, with as much or little involvement as suits your School or Trust. From a bureau approach to run BACS and produce payslips, through to a fully managed service (where we are effectively your payroll team), all service levels utilise our HMRC recognised ichris payroll. And, if required, we offer a browser based portal for safe and efficient payslip delivery to staff, regardless of their location. Using payroll services takes away the responsibility for and costs of technology, specialist staff and ensuring compliance.

We understand the importance of data security and are ISO 27001 certified.  Our software enables compliance with data protection legislation via comprehensive security measures that prevent unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of personal data.  All data held in the system can be compiled into reports for compliance with GDPR.

Frontier Software is committed to ensuring products meet changing needs and expectations through substantial investment in research, development and staying at the technological edge. Our commitment to and sole focus on the provision of a fully integrated HR/Payroll software solution is evident in everything we do. You can rely on our easy to use, infinitely adaptable products and first class client services, delivered by local teams across the UK and Ireland.

The ichris software delivers real time, secure access to data ensuring a streamlined approach. On-premise and cloud options are available and data can be accessed 24/7 using a range of devices, including laptop, tablet and Smartphone.  Separate, stand alone systems could be costing you in time, resources and money. During this period of considerable change and uncertainty, put your trust in a provider that delivers all of the above and more.
