Ulster firm ICS Computing has won a major software and services contract with a world- leading online gambling group.
The deal with Victor Chandler (International), which is based in Gibraltar, will place ICS Computing at the heart of its staff pay roll management system.
Belfast-based ICS is providing pay roll software, services and e-HR to Victor Chandler, an independent sports betting and gaming group with operations in over 70 countries.
Hosted by ICS at its Belfast data centre, the multi-currency pay roll solution and e-HR system guarantees full security and back-up along with the flexibility required to meet the diverse needs of Victor Chandler and its 350 employees.
The Belfast company is the UK's largest privately-owned provider of pay roll services, offering outsourced pay roll, HR and pay roll software and HR consultancy services.
It employs 250 people at its offices in Belfast, Newbury and Glasgow, and at a software development centre in India.
Robert Duthie, HR manager for Victor Chandler International, said: " Despite the fact that Gibraltar taxation is totally different to that of the UK, ICS successfully implemented and incorporated the required changes to our system within a one-week period.
"ICS has proved to be an innovative and highly flexible partner and already the solutions have greatly improved efficiencies within the HR department and have generated significant cost savings for the company."
As part of the contract, ICS processes the pay roll and manages all outputs including payments, employee pay slips, returns to third parties and revenue commissioners, reports, year-end returns and implementation of new legislative requirements.
Victor Chandler (International) was established in 1946 by Victor Chandler Senior, and the company initially ran a chain of some 40 betting shops across the UK.
He moved the company to Gibraltar and with the introduction of tax-free betting has further strengthened its position in the marketplace to become one of the world's leading online gambling companies.
