Ciphr’s HCM platform recognised as a ‘Core Challenger’ in the Fosway 9-Grid for Cloud HR for second year running

For the second successive year, Ciphr, a leading UK provider of cloud HR software, payroll, recruitment and learning solutions, has been recognised as a Core Challenger by leading EMEA HR analyst Fosway Group in its 2021 Fosway 9-GridTM for Cloud HR, which was announced today (30 September 2021).

Fosway’s analysis of Ciphr’s people management solution on the Fosway 9-GridTM for Cloud HR recognises the company’s ongoing commitments to customer success and product development. Ciphr continues to strengthen its position as a leader in the cloud-based HCM market, and offers its mid-to-large-sized enterprise customers a very competitive proposition.

The Fosway 9-GridTM is a unique, five-dimensional model that can be used to understand the relative position of HR solutions and providers in the EMEA market. Solutions are assessed on five factors: performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership (TCO), and future trajectory.2021 Fosway 9-Grid for cloud HR - Ciphr

This is a fantastic acknowledgement of the hard work of our technical development, customer success and customer support teams, who are committed to ensuring that our customers benefit from a best-in-class HCM solution and brilliant levels of service.”

“We’re also continuing to build upon the already excellent connectivity of our HCM platform to other specialist solutions across the people management ecosystem, helping our customers to further streamline their HR processes, improve their access to high-quality analytics, and work with technology that’s the right fit for their organisation and their people.”
