Toolbank parent overhauls HR & payroll system

Dormole says it is laying the foundations for future growth by undertaking a major overhaul of its HR and payroll processes in partnership with MHR.

The family-owned Dormole group of companies which includes Toolbank, Forgefix, Faithfull, Olympia, Biz, Tucks O’Brien and Tucks Fasteners & Fixings, has invested in a single integrated HR, payroll and time & attendance system, as part of a project to centralise its processes and embrace new digital ways of working to replace outdated systems.

The system will bring together MHR’s cloud-based HR and payroll solution iTrent with a time & attendance solution from workforce management specialists HFX, enabling the company to automate many repetitive tasks and simplify the management of its 1,100 employees located across multiple sites.

The new system will enable Dormole to gain total transparency of its people and perform all tasks from a single source, which will reduce administration time and drive cost savings.

Integration with HFX Time & Attendance enables employee data to be shared and flow directly between the two systems without the need for manual data entry, accelerating the payroll process and improving its accuracy.

Dormole group HR director Wendy Milne Bennett said: “Dormole remains a privately-owned and managed business committed to providing a first class, efficient and friendly service for our customers and suppliers delivered by our team who all work in a rewarding, secure and enjoyable environment.

 “As a result of our success and recent growth we have inherited multiple legacy payroll systems, and it was becoming increasingly clear to support our future growth plans we needed to consolidate all of our HR and payroll needs onto a single system and increase our digital functionality.”

Anton Roe, CEO at MHR comments: “We are delighted to support a successful and ambitious family company as it looks to bring its people processes right up to date to support its future growth.

“Consolidating its HR and time & attendance functions… will provide Dormole companies with the ability to carry out critical tasks much faster while delivering greater control of its people and payroll costs.”
