Allocate Software Launches e-Expenses Module for Healthcare Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2009) - Allocate Software plc (AIM:ALL), the leading supplier of NHS e-Rostering and Bank Staff management solutions in the UK Healthcare market, is pleased to announce the launch of its new e-Expenses module. The e-Expenses module has been developed to complement the existing market leading MAPS Health Suite solution, to help ease the administrative burden for staff entering, approving and processing expense claims, whilst delivering more accurate and timely payment of expenses.

The new module, which was officially launched at the recent 'Leading workforce thinking NHS Employers' annual conference and exhibition', was developed in partnership with Allocate Software's NHS customers, to respond to a specific NHS problem.

Allocate Software has delivered a tailored approach which manages the complexity of specific payment rules with flexibility for variations of these rules that occur between the Trusts. This module enables staff to efficiently prepare and submit their expense claims and streamlines the approval and payment process for managers and payroll.

David Pickworth, Payroll Project Manager, Kent and Medway NHS Payroll Services, who worked with Allocate Software on the development comments: "The partnership between ourselves and Allocate Software to complete their e-Expenses solution is a significant initiative. The company already provide e-Rostering and Bank management solutions within our region and so the e-Expenses initiative is an obvious next step building on the platform already in place. Particularly significant will be leveraging the existing ESR interfaces to ensure accurate payment and reduction in both paperwork and administration."

Paul Scandrett, Director of Healthcare, comments "We understand the complexity of specific payment rules and the variations that occur; this makes it a time consuming and lengthy process to ensure that staff are reimbursed correctly and in a timely manner. We have been working extensively with our customers, including Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Trust and Barts and The London NHS Trust, to ensure this e-Expenses module is robust yet flexible. We are very pleased with the new and unique functionality that supports the solution and will help to save staff time which can be spent attending to patient needs."
