MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – December 22nd, 2009 – PAGEUP PEOPLE INCLUDED IN GARTNER MAGIC QUADRANT

PageUp People, along with 24 other vendors, went through a thorough assessment process which saw the company’s processes, operational capabilities and Recruitment Module reviewed on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Gartner Inc. noted that the strong underpinning strategic focus of the PageUp People offering as being a key contributor to the quality talent acquisition offering.

“Its services offering is sophisticated, going beyond technical implementation into more strategic HR services such as job design.”

Karen Cariss, PageUp People CEO, is happy with the outcome, noting solid experience in the market and a strong vision as being a contributing factor to the result.

“Our vision for some time has been to deliver an innovative talent management product on one platform underpinned by ‘right practice’ consulting so that enterprises have the technical support to align human capital to business success.

Being publicly acknowledged by Gartner Inc. in the global eRecruitment market supports the fact that the PageUp People platform has the capability to deliver on this vision.

Our focus and determination on forming close relationships with clients over the last decade and belief that one size does not fit all has built our success and had a huge impact on the flexible design of the product in supporting recruitment drives across the globe.”

The recognition comes as no surprise for clients such as Anglo American, Coles and Foster’s Group who leverage the flexible capabilities of the product to manage their entire recruitment process.

With tried and tested capabilities that extend to deep integrations with providers such as SHL, TestGrid, FirstAdvantage, Oracle, PeopleSoft and SAP, and job boards across the globe, including Monster and Seek, the robust product is able to support some of the largest recruitment drives easily.

Recent innovative enhancements to the Recruitment Module that have transformed the recruitment process for clients include:

  • use of Web 2.0 technology to support employer branding initiatives
  • ability to facilitate and enhance employee referral programs through Facebook
  • inclusion of Google maps on career websites
  • auto-matching candidates to available jobs for ‘quick fill’ roles
  • creation of one talent management application with recruitment data feeding into Performance,
  • Succession and 360 Review Modules for one employee experience

The inclusion of PageUp People into the Gartner Inc. publication marks the first time an Australian provider has been acknowledged in the world renowned report.

Despite being the first year to be included in the Gartner Inc. Magic Quadrant for eRecruitment Software, PageUp People has been in the eRecruitment market for over 13 years and has seen over 8 million applicants pass through the Software as a Service platform. PageUp People has over 100 Recruitment Module clients, including some of the world’s largest companies and is the market leader amongst the Australian Top 100.
