Engeneum help long term customer Nottinghamshire County Council embark on a pioneering project to digitise personal files for innovative online document storage and retrieval to streamline their Human Resource practices.


Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC), like many governmental bodies, grappled with the challenge of managing vast amounts of paperwork related to HR processes. Their Business Support Centre (BSC) was burdened with the physical storage and security of personal files, creating logistical challenges and inefficiencies. With the need for secure access to documents across remote sites, NCC recognized the pressing need for a digital transformation of their HR operations.


The existing HR process relied heavily on paper-based documentation stored at a distant transactional unit. This setup posed several challenges:

  1. Inefficient Retrieval: Locating and retrieving specific documents from the extensive paper file storage was time-consuming and resource-intensive.
  2. Limited Accessibility: Remote sites struggled to access necessary HR documents promptly, hindering operational efficiency.
  3. Security Concerns: The physical storage of sensitive personal files raised security risks and compliance issues.
  4. Costly Storage: Maintaining extensive paper file storage incurred significant document storage costs for the council.


To address these challenges, NCC partnered with Engeneum to implement a comprehensive digital solution. The key components of the solution included:

Key Features & Benefits:

  • SaaS HR Portal: Engeneum provided a Software as a Service (SaaS) HR Portal, offering centralized access to HR and payroll functions.
  • Online Payslip Solution: Engeneum’s online payslip solution allowed for 24/7/365 access to e-payslips for both current and former employees, simplifying payroll processes.
  • Secure Infrastructure: The solution was hosted in Azure UK data centers, ensuring robust security and compliance with data protection regulations.


The digital transformation of NCC’s HR processes yielded significant benefits:

  • Operational Efficiency: Streamlined workflows and improved accessibility enhanced overall operational efficiency within the council.
  • Cost Savings: The reduction in document storage costs and resource savings contributed to improved financial sustainability.
  • Enhanced Employee Experience: Employees benefited from convenient access to HR-related information, contributing to a positive work environment.
  • Compliance and Security: The adoption of secure digital solutions ensured compliance with data protection regulations and mitigated security risks associated with physical document storage.

Overall, the successful implementation of digital HR solutions not only addressed the immediate challenges faced by NCC but also positioned them for future growth and innovation in public service delivery.
