Ebusiness solutions provider Lawson Software this week landed an £870,000 deal to supply web-hosted human resources and payroll systems to giant US firm, Kemper Insurance.

Kemper, which has headquarters in London and Minneapolis, chose Lawson above 20 other suppliers including PeopleSoft and Oracle.

Kemper's human resources systems manager Glen McPherson said: "Kemper expects to save approximately 40% over current total costs for managing human resources and payroll."
