January 30, 2017 – Ascender and NGA Human Resources today announce they have completed a transaction whereby Ascender has acquired the Australia and New Zealand business of NGA Human Resources, one of Australia’s leading HR and Payroll Technology and Outsourcing organisations.
This transaction will create the market leader in HR & payroll software and services in ANZ and the Asia-Pacific region, servicing over 3,000 clients and over 1.7m employees.
As part of the agreement, Ascender and NGA HR have entered into a strategic partnership to deliver payroll and HR services solutions for the ANZ region to ensure a seamless solution for NGA HR’s global payroll and HR clients, as well as continued service delivery for local NGA HR’s customers leveraging NGA’s global delivery centres.
The technology assets and service capabilities acquired from NGA HR include 200 highly trained staff across Australia and New Zealand, and state-of-the art HCM platforms such as Preceda and PS Enterprise.
The Association for Payroll Specialists (TAPS) is also part of the transaction and will continue to operate as an independent association, providing payroll advice, training and recruitment services to its 4,000 payroll professional members as it has for the last 26 years.
Through a newly formed partnership both parties will collaborate to provide ANZ payroll solutions to NGA HR’s global enterprise clients, as part of NGA HR’s global payroll offering. The strategic partnership will include collaboration around payroll innovation and broader HR services offerings, including a range of flexible service delivery options for global clients with a footprint in ANZ.
