Technology solutions and partners: HR and Payroll

User engagement

"Helping you to streamline HR processes and choose the right systems, empowering your team to focus on what matters most — your organisation's people and mission."

HR work is particularly admin-heavy and, for some non-profit organisations, the nuances of flexible and part-time working, job shares, and shift pattern management only add to the back-office burden.

The pandemic highlighted the importance of being able to communicate quickly with staff about time-sensitive issues, the need for proactive health and wellbeing programmes, and accelerated the adoption of online self-service HR software.

The range of possible solutions and suppliers can seem dauntingly vast, and the risks and penalties of making the wrong choices are just as scary.

HR and payroll software can be standalone applications, often with very strong, specialised functionality, or be delivered via one system which covers both.

At Adapta we possess the specialist procurement techniques and the experience to guide and advise you through the whole selection process.

Why Adapta

Adapta are independent, not resellers, and do not receive any commission or income from suppliers. All information systems projects are different – not because of the technology but because every organisation has a different history, different experience and skills, and a different way of doing things. Our consultants have worked with more than 300 non-profit organisations, and we bring all that experience to our work with you.


We have helped many charities, membership organisations and other non-profit organisations with their HR and Payroll projects. Below are examples of just a few of the organisations we have worked with.
