Bridgewater, NJ (PRWEB) May 5, 2008
WebApps, Inc. a.k.a. SaaS.com, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) with a major push in Workforce Management Solutions, today announced details of its partnership with HireMeNow.com, LLC (http://www.HireMeNow.com), the first online temporary employment marketplace and a successor to America's Job Bank. In this unique partnership, SaaS.com provides the innovative technology platform that supports HireMeNow.com's operations. As HireMeNow.com's technology provider, SaaS.com both developed HireMeNow.com's website and underlying business application, and now is responsible for on-going maintenance and enhancements.
Under SaaS.com's SaaS Enablement business line, organizations can partner if they are looking to deliver a service more effectively over the Internet, expand the scope of an existing web application, or, as in HireMeNow.com's case, find outside means to build, manage, maintain and enhance an application. "We needed a technology firm to provide a solution with scalability great enough to run an online temporary staffing service," stated Phillip Thune, CEO of HireMeNow.com. "Unlike other companies that would have started from scratch, we were impressed with SaaS.com's ability to leverage its existing SaaS delivery platform, ultimately leading to faster development time."
In addition to a pre-existing set of Human Resources centric applications offered under a private-label model, SaaS.com can build, respond or migrate its platform to virtually any business-to-business or business-to-consumer application. The pure multi-application, multi-tenant delivery platform can be coupled with business logic, application-specific workflow, and proprietary data to be delivered as a complete SaaS solution.
A three-tiered approach to the delivery platform's architecture, or framework, makes software development more efficient and shortens time-to-market. As specific enhancements to an application are generally performed in conjunction with improvements to the delivery platform, SaaS.com embedded features unique to HireMeNow.com's business within its existing SaaS delivery platform. "HireMeNow.com functionality includes the ability to accept payments online and allows people to manage their accounts in a variety of ways," stated Bill Loss, CEO of SaaS.com. "In addition, job candidates can create VINTROs™ (video resumes), take online skills tests and post resumes, while companies seeking talent can post their job openings for free and gather additional candidate information such as background screenings and reference checks. Through the application, job candidates and companies can also easily exchange information back and forth to conduct interviews and ultimately secure job placement."
Another factor that drove HireMeNow.com to partner with SaaS.com is its track record of securely managing employment and payment data. Safety and privacy are paramount to HireMeNow.com's business. The primary data center where SaaS.com's software resides is one of the only commercially available facilities that exceeds the Department of Defense (DoD) standards for a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).
"HireMeNow.com has successfully created the first online temporary employment marketplace, connecting job seekers directly to companies looking for temporary or contract workers," stated Thune. "With SaaS.com as our technology partner, we gain the ability to focus on the core of our business, and let them handle the technical development and implementation of our applications. We believe this gives us a stronger competitive edge."
Since HireMeNow.com is the first of its kind, "We believe the functionality of our website allows us to compete very effectively with traditional, or offline, temporary agencies and online job boards," Thune continued. "As a result, our service is typically less expensive for companies, can offer higher wages to job seekers, more directly connects the two, and offers everybody more control and flexibility throughout the process. Like the airline booking industry, we expect that both job candidates and companies that need immediate help will soon be fulfilling their temporary employment needs online."
