Integra’s Bruce Foster: First to Gain Accreditation both for Unit4 Record to Report (R2R) & Hire to Retire (H2R)

Integra Associates Ltd take pride in hiring and developing the best and most qualified UBW/Agresso consultants, to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality solutions for our clients’ needs. We at Integra, are proud to announce and congratulate Bruce Foster, one of our Senior Implementation Consultants, on becoming the first Unit4 UBW consultant globally to be accredited in both Record to Report (R2R) & Hire to Retire (H2R).

Bruce, who is highly regarded both within Integra and amongst our customer base, joined Integra 5 years ago as an experienced Unit4 HR and Payroll Implementation Consultant. His dedication to his personal professional development has resulted in this much deserved double achievement. Bruce made this achievement possible despite having a full schedule of client commitments.

Accreditation, training, and continuous professional development of our staff are a priority to Integra. Integra currently has 15 accredited members of staff, 2 of whom have been awarded for exceptional achievement. Furthermore, our consultants have a 100% pass rate when it comes to Unit4 Accreditations.

R2R Accreditation

The Record to Report (R2R) process forms the foundation of financial reporting, risk management, strategic reporting, and decision making. The R2R process reconciles all aspects of an organisation, potentially comprising of tens of thousands of tasks and activities, and is relied upon by internal and external stakeholders to reflect a true and fair position of the business. R2R in itself is risk laden enough, making it imperative that the credentials and capability of those implementing and managing the process are of the highest standard.

Benefits of Double Accreditation

Managers, financial teams, project teams, IT and HR users, all have strong and often seemingly conflicting requirements of any cross-organisational system. An individual, skilled and accredited in both HR and Financial processes and applications, can conduct and interpret process mapping to enable stakeholders to agree on and create best practices that will result in meaningful reporting and analytics from both HR and non-HR data.

Hire to Retire Accreditation

Human Resource (HR) professionals, and the organisations in which they operate, face enormous challenges in dealing with the growing complexity of managing vast amounts of employee information, legally required employee documents, performance appraisals, confidentiality agreements – to name a few.

Additionally, the processes and infrastructure required to manage all this information throughout an employee’s tenure are usually extensive, thus demanding dedicated resources to implement and maintain. Yet, even with sufficient resources, collating and maintaining accurate employee information and ensuring it can be retrieved on request, is a challenge, with possible legal consequences if not handled correctly. To this effect it is imperative to have on board an individual with not just HR expertise but also IT and ERP implementation credentials.
