CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Dec 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.

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."
