Ciphr also realigns its product range, and introduces new packages to improve choice and value for customers

Ciphr, a leading UK provider of SaaS HR, payroll, recruitment and learning solutions, is today rebranding its HCM platform as ‘Ciphr Connect’.

The new name is designed to emphasise the importance of connectivity between specialist HR software at the heart of Ciphr’s offering to customers, and create a clearer distinction between the growing activities of the Ciphr Group and the range of products that Ciphr offers.

Ciphr Connect provides a frictionless people experience across an organisation’s entire employee lifecycle. As well as the seamless integration between each of the solutions in the Ciphr Connect platform (now named Ciphr HR, Ciphr Payroll, Ciphr iRecruit, and Ciphr LMS), Ciphr Connect also has excellent connectivity to a wider ecosystem of specialist, third-party tools using modern API technology.

Ciphr is also today announcing the launch of four new Ciphr Connect functionality packages, which are designed to offer customers a combination of products and features that will help them solve their HR challenges, for an attractive price:


Ciphr Connect Essentials

Create a platform for future success while solving an organisation’s central HR needs. It comprises:

  • Communications tool
  • Case management
  • Safeguarding/eligibility and certification module
  • Active Directory connector
  • Two-factor authentication
  • One additional API key


Ciphr Connect Hire

Helps organisations reduce hiring costs, simplify administration, and onboard new starters. It comprises:

  • Ciphr iRecruit
  • Ciphr Onboarding
  • Identity and background checks
  • One additional API key


Ciphr Connect Pay and Reward

Enables organisations to integrate HR, finance and payroll to streamline processes, reduce risk, and increase compliance. This pack comprises:

  • Ciphr Payroll or integration between Ciphr HR and the organisation’s chosen payroll software
  • Electronic payslips
  • Total reward statements
  • One additional API key


Ciphr Connect Talent

Creates a comprehensive people solution that helps organisations manage and develop their workforces. It comprises:

  • Ciphr LMS
  • Talent management
  • One additional API key

Commenting on the changes, Matt Russell, chief commercial officer at Ciphr, said: “Ciphr’s offering has grown far beyond the HR software we started out with more than 30 years ago. The introduction of the Ciphr Connect brand makes it clear that we now provide comprehensive, and integrated people management solutions that enable customers to better manage processes and interactions across the employee lifecycle – from talent attraction, recruitment and onboarding, through to pay, talent management and offboarding.

“The repositioning also emphasises the importance of integrated people management solutions to HR and organisational success. Without connected systems, HR professionals waste precious time on administrative tasks that could (and should) be automated, and lack holistic insight into key people metrics – which is essential for making timely, informed strategic decisions.”

Russell added: “The Ciphr Connect HCM platform provides our customers with a frictionless people management experience, whether they choose to use only our solutions, or integrate Ciphr Connect with software from other third-party vendors – including our specially chosen Ciphr partners. We’re delighted to be embarking on this next chapter in Ciphr’s history and welcoming even more organisations to the Ciphr family.”
