Safe Computing secures major new contract
Athona, a key supplier of staff to the Medical, Healthcare, Nursing and Education markets, is enjoying continuous and rapid growth and has identified the need for a significant upgrade in technology to support the next phase of the company's development.
After comparing software solutions from several suppliers, Athona selected Safe's Tempest Middle and Back Office solution.
This encompasses Safe Tempest Payroll and Billing, Safe Portals, Safe Financials and Safe Credit Control and, together with 'out of the box' integration to the recently acquired front office solution from Eclipse, will automate business processes and streamline client interaction.
Seamless integration and sector expertise to unlock business benefits...
Integration was a key factor in the choosing of Safe Tempest, as the significant manual input required with Athona's existing platforms is both time-consuming and resource-hungry.
Jason Martin, Safe's Commercial Director for Staffing, explained, "We worked with our healthcare front office partner Eclipse to demonstrate that we have the capability to provide Athona with a reliable and integrated solution. This will enable significant efficiencies to be realised alongside time and cost savings."
Stewart London, Athona's Managing Director, commented, "We are looking forward to rolling out the benefits of this end-to-end technology, which will allow the business to focus on growth and the delivery of our renowned commitment to quality and customer service. We chose Safe to further enhance our client and candidate experience, giving them access to a range of features and functionality to reduce their manual input in the process."
Safe Tempest provides recruitment agencies with a comprehensive platform built around the payroll and billing engine that supports all aspects of the middle and back office. Trusted by respected businesses across the UK and Ireland, including seven of the top ten recruiters, it is used to successfully process over thirteen million payees each year and incorporates innovative, value-adding functionality.
Athona's implementation will begin this summer with the objective of going live during the third quarter of 2015. Jason Martin added, "Our unrivalled expertise within the recruitment market means that we are uniquely placed to maximise the business benefits delivered to Athona and we are looking forward to working closely with their team later on this year."
