Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
Kanda Software, a leading software development firm, announced today that it has worked with RallyPoint to develop software that assists U.S. military personnel to manage their careers and network with professional peers. RallyPoint is a completely secure and private platform for active members of the military. It allows servicemembers to stay connected as well as to expand their networks and provide transparency into fulfilling career options during and past their military service. RallyPoint is currently in beta and will be available to active duty, reserve, and transitioning service members later this year.
RallyPoint is a built upon cutting-edge technology to create a community-specific communications platform. While there are existing social networks, none have been focused on the specific career challenges faced by our military personnel. Beyond maintaining a trustworthy and private on-line community, RallyPoint offers meaningful resources and data visualization tools for servicemen and servicewomen that helps them identify key career opportunities throughout their careers. RallyPoint will also place military personnel into contact with mentors, colleagues, and potential employers when they are ready to transition.
Use RallyPoint to:
Claim your online military identity
Discover the best PCS opportunities
Grow your professional network across the military
Track career updates of military peers and units in real time
Bring focus to your military career
Lock in the perfect civilian job before transition
Yinon Weiss, CEO of RallyPoint, discussed the benefits of RallyPoint. “At its basic level RallyPoint will help reduce unemployment rates for veterans but that is just the beginning. Beyond that, our servicemen and servicewomen will have a powerful networking resource and unprecedented visibility into new opportunities to help them excel in both their military and post-military careers. Weiss continued, “We employ patent-pending technology to create network transparency by overlaying an individual’s social graph across giant hierarchical organizations. We believe this can have great value not just in the military, but across any very large organization.”
"As a citizen and a patriot it is an honor and a privilege to be a part of RallyPoint. It is a meaningful undertaking that delivers real value to active U.S. military personnel and at the same time helps veterans find gainful employment," said Alex Karpovsky, President of Kanda Software.
