Criterion Fuels Overseas Expansion, Empowers Partner Network with UK Rollout

UK government recognition offers midmarket firms the power and simplicity of Criterion’s comprehensive HCM platform

Norwalk, CT –Thursday, April 29, 2021

Criterion HCM, a leader in midmarket Human Capital Management software, today announced that their payroll solution has been tested, and officially recognized by the UK government (HMRC) for sale in the UK.

HMRC tests payroll software to confirm it can report PAYE information online and in real-time (RTI). The recognition means that Criterion HCM information will be listed and accessible to any organization in the UK by searching the portal.

According to a leading analyst firm, over half of the enterprise and midmarket companies will invest in cloud-based HCM platforms by 2025, yet will still need to rely on point solutions to meet a large percentage of their requirements.

The Criterion HCM platform is designed to meet these complex challenges head-on by combining advanced enterprise-level functionality and configurability with a simple, best-in-class user experience that yields both power and simplicity — all from a single, unified cloud platform. Criterion HCM quickly delivers critical HR, Payroll, and Talent Management capabilities to consolidate, automate and accelerate necessary people processes, all at a midmarket price.

Criterion HCM is available direct from Criterion in over ten countries with local language support, and through select partners. Our UK and EU partners include IFS, a premiere global ERP solution, as well as TrackTik, an end-to-end security workforce management solution for the physical security industry. Other key partners include Acumatica and Sage Intacct, two leading global ERP providers with a significant presence in the UK.

We’re honored to be officially recognized by the HMRC as a payroll software provider. Our company is passionate about providing powerful HCM solutions to midsized organizations — not only in the U.S. but around the globe. Criterion HCM is engineered to meet or exceed the unique needs and challenges of midmarket companies, and help them thrive,” said Sunil Reddy, Criterion CEO.
