LONDON, November 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Manpower Software plc, the leading provider of workforce optimisation and electronic rostering solutions in the UK healthcare market, is pleased to announce that United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has selected Manpower Software's MAPS Healthroster solution for electronic rostering of all their staff groups including Junior Doctors and Consultants, after a thorough evaluation of competitive offerings. The contract has been won as part of the framework agreement awarded last year by the NHS re:source Procurement Hub for the East Midlands region.

Colin Evans, Associate Director of Supplies at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust commented: We chose Manpower Software for their strong proven customer track record in NHS Trusts across the UK and for the superior functionality and ease of use of MAPS Healthroster. Key capabilities we considered of most importance to us which MAPS Healthroster was able to deliver over the other vendors, included: its proven ESR integration which will help us reduce payroll admin and improve payroll accuracy and its proven integration with Bank. We look forward to working with the team at Manpower Software.

Key to choosing MAPS Healthroster is the proven capability to offer more than simple electronic rostering to NHS Trusts. Expected benefits from the solution include improved nurse rosters, patient safety, improved quality of life for nursing staff and more accurate payroll records.
