SD Worx expands Irish footprint with acquisition of Intelligo

Intelligo Logo

SD Worx, the leading European HR solutions Provider, has acquired Intelligo – an Ireland-based supplier of HR and Payroll Software and Outsourcing Services – to further expand its presence in the Irish market and to strengthen its portfolio of own payroll and HR software.

Established 26 years ago, Intelligo has been a trusted payroll partner for many leading brands across Ireland and beyond. Intelligo’s award-winning solutions and services portfolio – MegaPay, MegaHR and MegaPay Outsourced – all provide innovative solutions to every major industry in the private and public sector from telco, ‘Big 4’ advisory firms, government departments, retail and more, with companies ranging in size from 200 to over 40,000 employees. Intelligo processes almost 40,000 payslips each month.

Intelligo is headquartered in Wicklow, nearby Dublin (Ireland), and has a workforce of 67 employees. They have been the SD Worx payroll partner in Ireland for 16 years, making the acquisition a natural decision for both companies. This existing relationship will help guarantee business continuity, and customers can benefit from the expanding SD Worx geographical scope, as well as access to the company’s broad HR offering.

    “We’re on a long-term expansion journey, and the acquisition of Intelligo bolsters our presence and offering in Ireland. Ireland is a hub of business interaction and our customer-base is ever-growing, so with this announcement our combined customers will, more than ever, benefit from our best-in-class HR services,” Kobe added.

By joining with SD Worx, we believe that we can continue to deliver on this commitment, and that our clients will benefit from the European-wide footprint and experience SD Worx offers. We also believe that SD Worx customers will benefit from our extensive local Irish knowledge and expertise. We all look forward to seeing the relationship thrive as we combine forces and integrate services over the coming months
