MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – October 19, 2004 –

Melbourne online recruitment software provider PageUp Pty Ltd was listed 33rd in the BRW Fast 100.

With an average growth of 83% over three years and a phenomenal growth rate of around 250% in the past year, the listing comes as no surprise to PageUp. From a team of only 7 less than 18 months ago, PageUp now employs over 20 full time staff and has opened a Sydney office to better service its clients.

The increased trust in web applications and a general upturn in the economy has played a role in opening up the market for online recruitment software but Karen Cariss, Managing Director and joint founder of PageUp has been the driving force behind the growth. Savvy business decisions and employing a strong team of experienced professionals has helped make PageUp Australia’s leading supplier in it’s field. PageUp’s advanced web technology sits behind the recruitment websites of Australia’s most well known companies. Optus, Fairfax, AMP, and Bendigo Bank are the latest organisations to be added to PageUp’s impressive client list, which also includes Coles Myer Limited, Flight Centre, Mayne Group and Macquarie Bank.

Cariss said “The growth that we have been through in the last year has been challenging but highly rewarding. Companies have realised the huge benefits of using an online recruitment system such as PageUp People and with the substantial time and cost savings that can be achieved an ROI can be expected within months. It is an exciting time to be in this industry and we have enjoyed working with our clients through this growth phase to bring them leading edge technology that makes a real difference to their business. The inclusion in the BRW Fast 100 list is a testimonial to all the hard work our team has put in over the past twelve months”
