Focused on the mission-critical functions of payroll and HR, as well as cutting-edge, people-centric solutions, the iSolved technology is a robust, cloud-based solution that serves over 3.5 million employees. iSolved HCM also announced the acquisition of AmCheck last year, which provided regional offices in key cities including San Diego, Phoenix, and Schaumburg, Illinois.

“iSolved HCM is very excited to be acquiring SPR,” stated Dave Dawson, CEO of iSolved HCM. “SPR payroll customers and licensees will now have access to cutting-edge HCM technology that includes employee engagement, performance and collaboration, benefits enrollment, time and attendance, as well as a payroll platform that is ideal for today’s employer. iSolved HCM has experienced phenomenal growth over the last few years, and this acquisition dramatically expands the users and businesses who trust iSolved for their workforce management needs.”
