advo are to be recognised at the prestigious Broker Innovation Awards for the creation of in-house technology which allows SMEs and smaller corporates to link the essentials of paying, rewarding and managing staff absence through one HR system.
advo’s ‘One’ platform was launched last year and is the first platform for SMEs that allows Payroll, HR and benefits to be run through a single log-in.
advo are finalists for the ‘Best use of Technology and the overall award of ‘The Broker Innovation award’.
The Broker Innovation Awards include the whole of the UK insurance industry and aim to recognise the innovation and ingenuity of intermediaries. The awards are described as seeking to ‘celebrate those [intermediaries] that have fully embraced technology in order to meet the needs of clients. The awards pay close attention to intermediaries that have taken an innovative approach to insurance protection and demonstrate collaboration, inventiveness and modernisation’.
Kevin Crew, advo’s IT Director explains why advo-one is so effective for an SME.
“One has three parts, the essentials for an SME. Each can be taken separately, together or any combination, depending on needs. It allows access to all employee benefits, supports people through absence management, with access to wider HR support, and pays people, through fully accredited HMRC payroll system, all in one place and backed by experts” adding “it’s a hire-to-retire people solution.”
Colin Boxall, advo’s Executive Director, commented
“advo has always embraced technology as a way to help our clients get the most from the service we deliver. The One platform is the culmination of this bringing together the SME essentials in one place, but we know, no matter how impressive the technology, it’s our brilliant people that really make advo stand out.”
The overall winners are to be announced at an awards ceremony taking place on 08 September 2022 in London.
