Alight Solutions, a leading provider of next level human capital and business solutions, has been named a Leader in Everest Group’s Multi-country Payroll Solutions (MCPS) PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2020. Alight’s global capabilities, investment in predictive analytics and intelligent payroll processing, along with its proprietary tools and technologies like HrX, Eloise and Lisa were highlighted as key strengths relative to its competitors.

Everest Group evaluated 19 payroll providers to determine their strengths across a variety of factors including automation, analytics and availability of services. Leaders are identified based on their ability to differentiate themselves geographically, invest in technology, and advance solutions, among other qualifications.

“When we acquired NGA HR, we believed our complementary strengths and capabilities would bring greater value to our clients and the marketplace,” said Colin Brennan, president of global solutions & services at Alight. “This recognition by Everest Group is a testament to that vision coming to life. Our ability to help companies transform the way they deliver payroll across the globe, coupled with the full power of Alight’s human capital solutions, makes us a formidable partner.”

Alight processes more than $4.7 billion in payroll for 26 million people across more than 180 countries.

“The combined entity – formed by Alight Solutions’ acquisition of NGA HR – has successfully leveraged its combined geographic presence and partnership ecosystem to strengthen its positioning in the MCP solutions market,” said Anil Vijayan, vice president, Everest Group. “Following the integration and further enhancement of its technological capabilities, Alight is set to become a major player in the payroll solutions market.”
