1st May 2018

Civica Group establishes stronger position in the Human Resources (HR) and payroll sector with the full integration of the former Carval Computing business

Civica, a market-leading specialist in business-critical software, digital solutions and managed services, has launched Civica HR & Payroll, a dedicated business unit and product offering for the sector and a new identity for Carval Computing, following its acquisition in July 2017.

The newly-launched Civica HR & Payroll business unit will ensure customers across the Group can benefit from a broad set of complementary products and services building on the Unity range of flexible HR systems, employee self-service technology and mobile apps, and complementary business process services. Together these provide an efficient modern platform for people, workforce and payroll management. 

The integrated business builds on Civica’s acquisition of Carval in 2017. The Group now offers better-aligned enterprise applications for finance and payments systems, both streamlining processes and boosting efficiencies for customers, while providing flexibility for their future digital needs. The launch also coincides with the latest new customers for Civica HR & Payroll business, including Merseytravel, the CGS Trust, East Durham College and MJ Allen.

Andrew Stenton, Divisional Managing Director, Payments and HRP commented: “The HR & payroll sector faces increasing demands for improved people and organisational development systems, especially in light of constantly changing and increasing legislation. The launch following the integration of Carval shows our commitment to the sector and to broadening our complementary offering across both the public and private sectors. We believe the combination of Carval’s heritage with a broader capability in service and technology areas will deliver exceptional value.

“We’re also now in a strong position to further integrate our HR & Payroll technology with other Civica business critical solutions including education, payments, financials, health and care and other areas to really benefit our customers, improve how they deliver services to their employees and further transform the way they work.”

The company now has HR and payroll partnerships with more than 300 organisations across the UK, including The Bannatyne Group, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Genius Foods, Bostik and Harvey Nichols, as well as providing payroll services to almost 200 businesses, schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts.
