Civica strengthens its green HCM offering with Point Progress acquisition
- Cheshire-based Point Progress specialises in carbon-focused expenses management software
- Civica will add carbon measurement capability to its existing Human Capital Management (HCM) offering
- Deal perfectly complements Civica’s ESG strategy to continually reduce its own environmental impact, support customers' Net Zero ambitions and create software with sustainability at the core
Civica has acquired Point Progress, a Cheshire-based provider of expenses management software which supports carbon measurement and reduction. The move will enable Civica, a UK-headquartered global leader in cloud public sector software, to enhance its green offering to its customers around the world.
From flights to car mileage to hotels, Point Progress’ innovative CarbonCalc software provides individual employees with a comprehensive overview of the carbon footprint associated with their business travel. Supporting a range of public bodies across the UK, including the Scottish Parliament and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, CarbonCalc analyses the carbon footprint of an individual expenses claim and allows each employee to compare the environmental impact of their business travel with others in the organisation. This in turn empowers employees to make smarter, greener choices and reduce their carbon footprint over time.
Complementary and targeted acquisitions are a key pillar of Civica’s global growth strategy. Building on more than 22 years of unbroken growth, the Point Progress deal will further enhance the company’s offering in Human Capital Management and ESG, with CarbonCalc planned to be rolled out to Civica customers.
