The Northern Ireland Prison Service (NIPS) has completed a 20-month training project designed to support the introduction of an SAP HR system. Nearly 400 staff were trained in the technology, which replaces a multitude of HR systems. 'When I joined, we had three payroll systems, two HR systems and systems for tasks like training and sickness monitoring,' says Gareth Herron, NIPS's project manager. Initially, Pecaso, which also handled the SAP implementation for NIPS, was to provide train-the-trainer tuition only. A total of 240 prison officers and 150 civil servants were trained in the SAP system at NIPS's dedicated training college.
