Mercans Increases Focus on Global Payroll and Carves-Out Recruitment and HR Advisory Business

Laser-sharp focus on global payroll outsourcing and software business follows a strong year of growth as it doubled its global headcount and increased its global payroll-related revenues by more than 40%.

Mercans, the global payroll technology leader, has separated its talent management and HR advisory businesses from its software and managed payroll operations. As a result of the carve-out, the recruitment and HR advisory services business will continue as an independent company led by a separate management team.

“Mercans’ talent acquisition and HR Advisory business’s recent performance has been very strong, particularly given the challenges in the overall business environment. The carve-out will maximize the prospects for that business by creating a more agile and focused company.”

Mercans’ founder and Group CEO Tatjana Domovits said: “Mercans’ talent acquisition and HR Advisory business’s recent performance has been very strong, particularly given the challenges in the overall business environment. The carve-out will maximize the prospects for that business by creating a more agile and focused company.”

This carve-out enables both businesses to focus on their core strengths and clients. Mercans global payroll outsourcing and SaaS business continues to operate under Mercans’ known and trusted brand, with its proprietary and disruptive HR Blizz global payroll software underpinning its growth and operations, while the recruitment and HR Advisory business will be rebranded as Mesaar.

Mercans also announced that veteran technology executive Vishwanathan Arunachalam (Vish), who was the group’s COO, will now focus exclusively on leading the global payroll business as its CEO.

A Mercans spokesperson said this appointment will further strengthen its technology position while maintaining a strong brand portfolio. This strategic new focus of the company reflects the strong vision of enhancing customer-oriented services and delivering value across all touch points.
