Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services, award winning UK leader in flexible payroll and HR systems, is celebrating after being recognised by pre-eminent industry body the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) in their annual awards, held recently at the Celtic Manor in Wales.

Cintra is delighted to have been awarded Project of the Year for its flawless implementation of auto enrolment.  The award recognises Cintra’s customer focused approach to this complex issue: the paramount business case for this project, was to make sure that customers were able to comply with auto enrolment legislation, however Cintra’s driving force was not just to ensure compliance, but to give clients the choice of how best the process should run in their business: to outsource as much or as little as they needed to and also to be able to successfully use middleware, should that be their preferred route.

Cintra’s award winning integrated HR and payroll software product, Cintra iQ was enhanced with additional complex functionality, which enables the HR and payroll teams of its 750 strong client base to fulfil their legislative obligations in relation to auto enrolment, efficiently and effectively.  The judges recognised that the innovative developments to the software, although state of the art, were successful because they were complemented by a comprehensive programme of training and communication, prior to implementation.  The fact that the upgrades to the software and certain interfaces are all provided free of charge demonstrate Cintra’s unique partnership approach to client relationships and was commended by the judge as a shining example to the industry.

The award serves to reinforce Cintra’s fully rounded service: first class product, expert implementation and outstanding customer service.  The judges were blown away by the client testimonials submitted in support of the application and Cintra clients gathered at the evening celebration to endorse the win.

Commenting on the win Cintra CEO Carsten Staehr said: “We are absolutely delighted!  This award is the icing on the cake of an amazing year for Cintra.  The CIPP awards are especially dear to our hearts – not only because the CIPP is the pre-eminent industry body but also because success in the awards relies on client testimonials. Our clients are at the heart of all we do and this external validation is an important addition to their ringing endorsements.”
