Six Degrees Group (6DG) has been selected by Cintra HR and Payroll Services to host its fully integrated HR and Payroll product ‘Cintra iQ’, saving it thousands in security costs.

Cintra is a multi-award winning provider of HR and Payroll services, priding itself on delivering true flexibility in its elegant and reliable solutions that provide ‘recruitment to retirement’ services.

In line with the launch of Cintra iQ, Cintra required a new hosting provider with full disaster recovery that would be more effective than their existing on-premise solution. By hosting the new product in the cloud, Cintra decided they could provide customers with improved ‘mix and match’ capabilities, as such a solution would allow simultaneous log-in to one centralised platform.

Carsten Staehr, CEO of Cintra, comments: “We have a long standing relationship with 6DG, who initially provided our disaster recovery solution. With our launch of Cintra iQ SaaS, we conducted thorough and in-depth research into the optimum hosting solution. It needed to be cost effective and flexible but more importantly tick all the boxes in relation to compliance, data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity. HR and Payroll data is highly sensitive, so these issues are of paramount importance to us and our clients. Another key factor in our decision was the guarantee that the solution was, and always would be, hosted in the UK. Working with 6DG was an easy choice for us as our experience had proven they would work with us as a valued ‘partner’, rather than just a ‘provider’.”

6DG decided to host Cintra iQ in a centralised cloud platform, providing Cintra and its clients with a SaaS solution with 24/7 accessibility. Also, a full disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities plan was put in place for a fraction of the cost of Cintra’s previous on-premise solution. Staehr concludes that the Cintra team are “entirely confident in 6DG to host Cintra iQ, as with their expertise and experience of the industry come the desired credentials and accreditations.”
