Civica Group, an international software company, has acquired HR Solutions, the HR and payroll business of the London-based technology-led services and payments specialist Equiniti Group.
The acquisition will strengthen Civica’s HR and payroll capabilities, while expanding the group’s presence in Northern Ireland.
Civica’s existing customers range across a number of markets, including the Met Office, Scottish Parliament, and a duo of NHS Trusts.
Wayne Story, CEO at Civica, said: “The acquisition strengthens our capability to help customers ensure efficient and high-quality payroll activities, as well as building on our broad solutions for human capital management.
“We look forward to supporting our new and existing customers in delivering their people strategies using our innovative cloud software and solutions.”
The Belfast-based HR Solutions currently provides services that improve the efficiency of payroll processes, reduce costs, and deliver an assured payroll experience for employees.
In 2019, the firm processed over £4bn in payments and issued almost three million payslips.
Guy Wakeley, chief executive at Equiniti, said: “HR Solutions is joining a business which provides payroll software and services to 500 organisations around the UK, and will provide an opportunity for the business to scale and grow.”
