Nairn’s Oatcakes - Case Study

Nairn’s are the UK’s number one* oatcake producer, and have been baking with oats since 1896.  Their business continues to grow and boasts an impressive and diverse portfolio covering oatcakes, oat crackers, oat biscuits, oat snacks and cereals.  In 2010, Nairn’s entered the Gluten Free market and they are currently the Number 2** producer of Gluten Free products in the UK. 

Mitrefinch provide Nairn’s with our Time and Attendance System, HR Software and Payroll Software which allows them to monitor staff absences, centralise and keep track of critical HR processes, run a whole host of payroll-related reports and much more.

With our Time and Attendance system, Nairn’s are able to monitor absence, quickly approve or reject leave requests and create holiday ‘rules’ for certain departments to ensure the business can function properly during staff leave.

Our HR software allows Nairn’s to access all their HR documents from one central location, which reduces admin time and minimises error. HR staff are reminded when important documents such as training are going to be out of date, which allows action to be taken proactively.

The Payroll system not only allows staff wages to be processed but also handles auto enrolment with ease.  It enables reports to be run on payroll data and easily creates reports needed for HMRC.
