Carval is now Civica HR & Payroll

02 May 2018

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 offer a broader set of complementary products and services to customers including a range of flexible HR systems, such as cloud-based solutions, employee self-service technology and mobile apps, providing an efficient modern platform for people, workforce and payroll management. 

The new unit builds on Civica’s integration of Carval. For example, the Civica Group can now offer 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 the 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 of this new division, following the integration of Carval, shows our commitment to the sector and us 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 greater value.

“We’re also now in a strong position to further integrate our HR & Payroll technology with other Civica critical-software processes across 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.”

Since integrating Carval into the Civica Group, the company now has 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.
