Saint Andrew’s Hospice

HR and Payroll Software

Saint Andrew’s Hospice

Cascade’s configurable HR and Payroll software suited the complexities of a workforce comprising of paid staff and volunteers, who were the backbone of Saint Andrews Hospice.

"The Self Service functionality has given our line managers access to a great wealth of information."

Saint Andrew's Hospice

Saint Andrews Hospice and Saint Andrew’s Children’s Hospice chose Cascade as they felt it was the closest fit with their requirements. The key reasons are highlighted below:
  • Cascade’s solution operates on web based .Net technology removing the need for client software
  • The Cascade company has a proven track record in specialist development of Human Resource solutions, plus a client base of other charities
  • The Cascade HR product is clearly a flexible and highly customisable product which can be easily adapted to a user’s requirements
  • The company is situated in a central northern location, giving Saint Andrews Hospice easy access to events such as user groups
  • Cascade’s staff were professional and very knowledgeable of their products
  • The Cascade product is modular allowing the hospice and the solution to grow together easily, over time.
Key Functionality

The hospices could see that the Workflow functionality would replace a majority of the manual checklists, and provide an automated backbone to the HR department to ensure that key tasks would not be missed by the team.

The Recruitment module offered the capability to create a structured and standardised process, through which both the volunteer and employee recruitment could take place. The client was impressed with how they could build up a detailed process with all the relevant recruitment documentation defined within it.

The report writer is a powerful and flexible tool within the product itself which would allow the creation of calculated fields with the addition of easy to use but highly effective graphing facilities.

Being able to modify key screens and also create new ones easily was a key requirement. Cascade’s HR software allowed St Andrews Hospice to do this simply and at the same time the process to upload data into new screens was very straightforward.

The level of security management within the product was very detailed but at the same time it was easy to administer. The hospices sought a product with this field level security .

The Benefits

Implementing the Cascade HR solution has greatly improved productivity in the HR department. The hospices continue to solve a number of problems and increase the use of the system across the organisation. They’re confident that Cascade HR will continue to develop in the future and over time further deliver the return on the investment made.

Cascade HR also enables the HR department to be more visible and proactive across the rest of the organisation, rather than it being a remote function “locked away” in a building.
