An interesting move last week international vendor NorthgateArinso acquired Adelaide based HR/Payroll vendor Neller. Finally giving NorthgateArinso a decent foothold of the Australian marketplace. Based on the press announcements all of Neller’s employees will remain and local Neller CEO will take up the reins on the combined entity.
Several years ago Northgate, as it was called back then, acquired vendor Rebus however this never really translated into major growth in Australia. With Neller the outcome could be very different. Neller’s Preceda People product pays around 700,000 employees across about 1,000 customer including large corporates such as Woolworths.
In 2006 Neller re-developed their AS400 based system into a fully functioning web based application using tools provided by LANSA. Since this time Neller have continued with strong sales growth.
It is not surprising that in Australia we are following the global trend of consolidation in HR/Payroll/Talent Management marketplace.
