The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2010-10-30T06:30:30Z Hubone named in MIS Strategic 100 2010-10-30T06:30:30Z hubone-named-in-mis-strategic-100 HubOne was named today in the Australian Financial Review MIS Magazine annual Strategic 100 edition as one of the ten rising stars. The Financial Review classified the 10 rising stars as often very new businesses but ones that show signs of seriously influencing the way technology is bought or deployed. "This is fantastic recognition of the work we have done in cloud computing adoption in Australia" said HubOne's Managing Director, Nick Beaugeard. "Following on from receiving Microsoft Online Services Partner of the year with this, shows just how important Cloud Computing is now regarded in business and Information Technology Circles", he said. Since January 2010, HubOne has been working to deliver world class deployments of Microsoft Cloud computing solutions and became a "pure cloud" integrator at the start of this financial year. Seeing a convergence of capability, vendor maturity and customer demand, HubOne has enjoyed a massively expanding eco system resulting in an ever expanding customer base. "Rather than this being a result purely of our success, I see this as recognition that enterprise class cloud computing has come of age." explained Beaugeard "We are excited to be piloting programs where we work to assist other organisations take advantage of this opportunity, learning from our experience rather than all by trial and error." HubOne is planning to launch its SP-squared program in December which is designed to grow the cloud provider ecosystem, but is accepting beta nominations now. SP-Squared is a services and support program which aims to accelerate organisations through business planning, customer acquisition and vendor management, whilst providing central technical services to support this growth. Six large integrators or distributors across Asia Pacific are already working with HubOne on this program. Beaugeard concluded by acknowledging the support of his customers and the entire team at Microsoft for making this achievement possible.

Already with a healthy order book across large Australian Organisations, Enterprise Profile Management is designed to provide easy and seamless access to information on people, skills, education and experience within an organisation. As well as being their first product to market, Enterprise Profile Management has been tested and confirmed as compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, the new operating system shortly to be made generally available by Microsoft. HubOne CEO Nick Beaugeard spoke of their commitment to quality, “It’s difficult as a start-up to develop robust, enterprise ready software. Our commitment to the Microsoft Logo Program demonstrates that we’re serious about this.” “Our customers demand high quality, valuable software.” He said, “..and we’re delighted to be able to announce this release.” Enterprise Profile Management is designed for organisations that already use Microsoft Active Directory and extends the basic information with a rich and searchable profile. “We have been running an extensive Beta Program with some extremely large customers and have taken that feedback straight into this release.” Beaugeard said. “Our evaluation customers are already beginning to report the benefits Enterprise Profile Management has for businesses of all sizes. We expect to be able to release our first case study customers soon.” He said.

Enterprise Profile Management will include Resume Parsing 2009-07-14T23:34:18Z enterprise-profile-management-will-include-resume-parsing Enterprise Profile Management will include Resume Parsing Sydney, NSW, 15 July 2009: HubOne, an IT start-up, announces that they have signed an agreement with Sovren, the world’s leading provider of software for Resume Parsing, Pinpoint searching and semantic matching. This agreement, signed in late June 2009 enabled HubOne to integrate the Sovren software into their Enterprise Profile Management Solution.During the Beta Testing Phase, one of the major items of feedback from customers was the time needed to input one’s qualifications, experience and skills. By Integrating the Sovren Software into Enterprise Profile Management, users of the software can simply import an existing resume or CV into Enterprise Profile Management, eliminating the need to update each individual item. HubOne CEO Nick Beaugeard claims that this integration is the difference between limited and full-scale adoption of the product. “Enterprise Profile Management has always been great at searching for people you need, however people sometimes resent the time needed to input their personal details,” he said. “By working with Sovren, we are able to almost totally eliminate the need for people to perform manual data entry. In addition, the Sovren software is able to elicit people’s skill sets from their experience, meaning we can provide an incredible richness of information without significant time investment” he said. The HubOne Team is currently preparing Enterprise Profile Management for release, which is rumored to be within the next sixty days. “We’re now in the final stages of testing Enterprise Profile Management and working with Microsoft to achieve Windows 7 Logo Certification. When we’ve completed those tasks, we’ll be releasing the product to market.” Beaugeard said.Enterprise Profile Management has seen significant interest from major Australian organizations and reseller partners, and will help companies reduce the money they spend on hiring independent contractors when they have internal staff with the required skills and experience. Benefits in brief: - Ability to dramatically reduce the cost of chargeable staff searching, recruiting and assigning people to roles. - Ability to reward, recognise and commend team members without spending money on events and awards. - Dramatic reductions in staff churn as staff move around as their aspirations and skills change. - A dramatic increase in staff satisfaction (Organisational Health) as staff can now guide their own careers.

The system, which will shortly be trialed by some of Australia’s biggest companies, allows staff to electronically create profiles of themselves outlining their present position, achievements, qualifications and employment history. Unlike similar internet-based systems, all staff information is held behind the organisations firewall.While still in its Beta testing phase, a number of companies have already seen the potential that Enterprise Profile Management offers by providing a rich, updated archive of staff information and reducing the need for external recruitment operators. According to BRW, Australia’s top 500 listed companies spend an average of $10,000 per year per consultant in fees alone, a costly overhead that HubOne managing director Nick Beaugeard believes can be significantly reduced. “The problem that Enterprise Profile Management solves is one that’s been plaguing me for most of my professional life; having spent a great deal of time as a consultant or freelance consultant, there is always a struggle in entering a new organisation and finding people who have subject matter expertise on areas of the business,” he said. “Our first product, Enterprise Profile Management, was developed after a large number of discussions with everyone from HR managers, recruiters and IT managers to senior executives.” “We have initial agreement from a number of large Insurance Companies, Engineering Companies, IT Systems Integrators and banks to get involved in the trial program, and we’ll take that feedback to release a public beta soon”, Beaugeard said. Presently management in any large organisation is often frustrated in its efforts to resource a new customer project, establish a new division or reposition existing staff through a lack of information on individual employees. People are commonly referred to as a company’s greatest asset and yet almost every organisation struggles with the effective and efficient use of its existing staff.Enterprise Profile Management means never having this problem again – management can source competent people from within its existing ranks while staff who may be over-qualified for their present position or offer some unique skill can be assured that they are now far more likely to be noticed. “After having many discussions, we realised there was a niche in the market for a cost-effective, simple solution which at its most basic form recorded the resume or CV for everyone in an organisation and made that really easy to search,” Beaugeard said. Benefits in brief: - Ability to dramatically reduce the cost of chargeable staff searching, recruiting and assigning people to roles. - Ability to reward, recognise and commend team members without spending money on events and awards. - Dramatic reductions in staff churn as staff move around as their aspirations and skills change. - A dramatic increase in staff satisfaction (Organisational Health) as staff can now guide their own careers.
