Prostate Cancer UK


Prostate Cancer UK (formerly The Prostate Cancer Charity) fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. They have three priorities:

1.Supporting men and providing information

2.Finding answers by funding research

3.Leading change to raise awareness and improve care

The charity provides Specialist Nurses who have time to talk and answer questions about prostate cancer and prostate problems. Support is also available through an online community and one-to-one support service which connects men and their families with others who know what they're going through and a range of free printed and downloadable information.

Prostate Cancer UK also funds research into tests, treatments and the causes of prostate cancer and with help from their volunteers, they work with the general public, the government and the NHS to raise awareness and get a better deal for men with prostate cancer.

The Drive for Change

When Prostate Cancer UK learnt that support for their existing HR application was due to end and they were to be faced with an expensive upgrade it triggered the decision to review their current needs and to evaluate alternative solutions.

The company identified a number of criteria that a new HR system should fulfil. Firstly it should offer integration with their existing Sage Line 50 Payroll to maximise efficiency and accuracy. Secondly they were keen to add Self Service functionality, particularly the ability for employees to book and authorise holidays. In addition they identified that there was a need to improve on the analytical data currently available to them, so any new solution should have strong reporting functionality.

Choosing Carval

The organisation selected Unistaff HR from Carval’s HR Unity Software range, along with Unity Online Manager and Employee Self Service. Carval was able to offer dynamic integration with Prostate Cancer UK’s 3rd party Payroll solution provided by Sage meaning that changes and entries made with in the Unistaff HR solution would be replicated in Sage Payroll automatically without the need for duplicated data entry.
