ANZ stand out market for cloud HR systems

15 Apr 15

New Zealand and Australia are stand out markets for NGA Human Resources, the provider of global HR solutions and services, across the entire Asia Pacific region.

NGA says cloud HR systems and payroll outsourcing have been rapidly adopted by Australian and New-Zealand-based organisations, both operating domestically and internationally.

In order to maintain momentum in the region, NGA has grown its ANZ staff by 20% in the last 12 months.

NGA HR has been operating in ANZ since 1976, and in 2010 acquired Australian-based HR and payroll software provider, Neller.

The company currently has four offices in Australia (Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney) and two in New Zealand (Auckland and Wellington).

It has more than 1,200 customers in ANZ, 52% of which have been customers for 6-12 years and 13% have tenure of 16-40 years.

March saw the completion of NGA HR’s Customer Forum for 2015, an annual roadshow held at six different locations across Australia and New Zealand.

The company says it has seen strong growth in ANZ via the retail sector in particular, with its flagship solution, Preceda.

Preceda is a cloud-based software platform that manages payroll and HR processes for organisations big and small.

The company has also witnessed growing demand for its solutions in the health and aged care sector and manufacturing industry, it says.

“We have witnessed significant changes in the HR function in recent years and this is driving organisations to outsource HR services such as payroll,” says , NGA Human Resources president Australia and New Zealand.

“From an employee mobility perspective, we have seen greater sophistication with the growing use of smartphones and both employees and managers being able to access and update information from anywhere on the go, as well as significant advancements in the level of reporting and analytics required.

“By outsourcing the HR function, either in part through our hybrid offering or in full, businesses can achieve greater cost and time efficiencies," she says.
