LONDON, February 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Manpower Software plc, a leading provider of workforce optimisation and electronic rostering solutions, is pleased to announce that Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust has selected Manpower Software's MAPS Healthroster solution after a comprehensive competitive OGC tender process.

David Wherrett, Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development commented: "The flexibility of Manpower's e-rostering solution for staff and management have been clearly illustrated throughout the procurement processes. By utilising the technologies available to the Trust we anticipate MAPS Healthroster will provide employees access to self-service "live" data, linked to existing core information systems (ESR) and these tools should give the Trust the ability to build appropriate skill mix and patient acuity data that will support us in becoming a responsive, efficient and effective service provider and market leader".

The project includes interfaces between MAPS Healthroster and ESR (Electronic Staff Record - the NHS HR and Payroll system). The largest benefit of this work is the automated calculation of pay data in MAPS Healthroster, which is then sent to ESR for payroll purposes - both increasing the accuracy of pay and delivering large time saving for staff, managers and the payroll department alike.

Commenting on the announcement, Paul Scandrett, Manpower Software's Healthcare Sales Director said: 'We are delighted to be selected by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust and look forward to working with the team. We continue to build our impressive track record in other NHS Trusts in the East of England region. This now brings the total number of MAPS Healthroster customers to 31 NHS Trusts in England and Wales.'
