Cintra HR & Payroll Services are delighted to have been recognised in all three top national industry awards during 2014: Pay & Benefits, Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) and Payroll World Awards.
Early 2014 saw Cintra making it onto the shortlist in the Pay & Benefits Awards in two hotly contested categories: Software Provider of the Year and Project of the Year. Later in the year Cintra was delighted to be awarded Project of the Year in the CIPP Awards for its flawless implementation of auto enrolment. The award recognised 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 year closed with Cintra announced as a finalist in the International Payroll category of the Payroll World Awards and its CEO being crowned Best Boss at the same ceremony.
The recognition 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 Cintra’s applications.
Commenting on its successful year, Cintra CEO Carsten Staehr said: “We are absolutely delighted! This industry recognition is the icing on the cake of an amazing year for Cintra. Independent acknowledgment of our efforts is wonderful but the awards are dear to our hearts primarily because success 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.”
