Payscale Inc., a compensation data, software and services company has acquired Agora Solutions Inc., a provider of communications, rewards and employee pay portals and other people analytics services.

Agora’s software looks to create candidate and employee total rewards communications and provides a collaboration with permissions and workflows to improve Payscale’s existing capabilities. Agora is Payscale’s third acquisition in the last 18 months, following its purchase of Curo‘s pay equity and compensation management software and its merger with Payfactors in 2021.

“We are so impressed by the creativity and innovation this group has shown as well as their commitment to pay transparency and fairness,” says Alex Hart, Payscale CEO. “We look forward to adding their services to our broader portfolio and utilizing their talent and perspective across other parts of our business.”

District Capital Partners served as financial advisor to Payscale on the Agora transaction.
