Paycor and Newton Software Unite to Reimagine HR Technology

Paycor Acquires Newton Software to Create an all-in-one HR Solution

built on Client Innovation, Customer Success, and Intuitive Design

Press Release

Cincinnati, OH


December 9, 2015

Paycor, providing companies with intuitive, cloud-based workforce

management software, today announced that privately-held San

Francisco-based Newton Software will become a distinct business unit

within the company. With this acquisition, Paycor adds a best-of-breed

applicant tracking system to its all-in-one HR solution specially

designed for small and medium-sized employers. The union adds to

Paycor’s strategy, aggressively strengthening their offering in the

talent acquisition arena. Paycor is already relied upon by 30,000

clients for HR, time and attendance, payroll, onboarding and the

particularly relevant, ACA reporting filing.

Together, Paycor and Newton create a game-changing, integrated HCM

offering. Clients will benefit from unique and modern functionality,

which takes an employer from job opening to payroll on a single

platform. Entrepreneurs and HR professionals alike will be relieved of

many of the burdens of hiring, managing employee data and compliance.

Recognized as the 5th fastest growing cloud app of Q1 2015 by Skyhigh

Networks, Newton’s mobile-ready, intuitive hiring platform complements

Paycor’s award-winning HR solutions that are similarly designed

specifically for small to medium-sized employers. Together, Paycor and

Newton will continue to innovate their technology platform to provide

organizations with the automation to tackle the business of HR.

Paycor CEO Bob Coughlin said, “Beyond great technology, the acquisition

of Newton Software brings a group of talented people to Paycor. They

will help us continue to deliver a broad range of products and services

that empower organizations to hire, manage and care for their employees.

I’m thrilled to welcome them to the team.”

Newton Software CEO Steve Hazelton added, “This merger allows us to

accelerate the development of our award winning products with an

organization that shares our values. It’s truly a win for our customers

and our employees.”

Serving employers across all 50 U.S. states, Paycor will use Newton

Software’s San Francisco and Fort Collins, Colo. offices as anchors for

its expanding West Coast operations.
