What is Electric?

The Electric theme of iTrent is a new ‘skin’ for the system which replaces the current skin for those users who use the ‘Cyan’ or ‘Blue’ themes. This fundamentally changes the way that users interact with the system and navigate around iTrent. The impact of this will be:

  1. Engagement with end users (or your clients)
  2. Training for users will be required
  3. Guidance notes/documents will need to be updated
  4. Security profiles will need to be reviewed
  5. Quick Links currently in place will need to be reviewed


We understand that clients may have concerns over the new requirement for all iTrent users to switch to the Electric Theme. Our experts are on hand to scope and support the delivery of the upgrade to the level you require – so you don’t have to be the expert!


Our scoping focuses on determining your requirements and identifying the activities that Phase 3 will carry out with you and those which you retain.  For some the transition will be simple, with few users and only a handful of security profiles, for other clients with thousands of users and potentially hundreds of security profiles we recognise this may be a challenge.

The Service can cover the full transition as follows:

Note that the time requirement largely depends on your current setup and if you have any requirements to change your security profiles whilst reviewing the profiles for Electric.

Switching Over to the Electric Theme

It should be noted that if the client is happy with the MHR Electric homepage and link design, the switchover could happen in minutes by a tickbox exercise.  Your Phase 3 Consultant will advise you during the scoping call whether this activity could be carried out in house, or if further works are needed and the amount of support and time that this will require.


Please see the below as a menu of choices towards the Electric Theme Upgrade:


  • Full scoping session looking at your own system to determine the level of work required
  • Review of the current security profiles with Electric Theme modifications and features to see how managers are affected considering possible access issues, incorporating GDPR requirements
