Extended market presence

In line with Civica’s continued growth strategy, the acquisition adds further specialist capability, which the Group does not currently offer.

With a strong track record since 2000, Trac Systems will help extend Civica’s presence in existing and adjacent market sectors. In particular, Trac Systems’ cloud software is used by approximately 160 UK NHS Trusts, extending the Group’s capability in health and care where Civica works with more than 400 customer organisations.

Wayne Story, Civica Group CEO, said, “I am delighted to welcome Trac Systems to Civica. The company’s cloud software is the recruitment system of choice for the NHS and we look forward to building on our combined capabilities in the healthcare sector and more widely to deliver increasing value to customers and stakeholders.”

Trac Systems is also the fifth largest DBS Umbrella body in the UK, handling in excess of 150,000 applications a year.

The business will form part of an enlarged health & care division for Civica, the Trac Systems software-as-a-service (SaaS) capability is relevant to customers across the Group that require recruitment management solutions; and is expected to bring good opportunities for cross-sales in the UK and internationally.
