To receive recognition on a global platform of excellence such as The Cloud Awards marks a great end to 2013 and is a sign of things to expect from HRBoss in 2014
Singapore (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Identifying and celebrating excellence in the field of cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program encourages entries from across the entire globe – the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA regions. Entrants can be from organizations of any size, including start-ups and global corporations. This is the first time that an Asia-based company has made the shortlist of the Cloud Awards.
HRBoss qualifies as one of five international finalists in the category of Best Software-as-a-Service (outside US). Other categories this year included Best Cloud Infrastructure, Data Innovation of the Year, “Best in Mobile” Cloud Solution and Most Promising Start-Up.
Bernie Schiemer, HRBoss Founder and CEO commented: "For HRBoss to be shortlisted in the Best Software-as-a-Service category of this year's Cloud Awards program is an honour, especially as we're featured in such a competitive category of international talent. 2013 has been an incredible year of expansion for all of us here at HRBoss. We've grown our suite of solutions beyond our flagship applicant tracking system, HiringBoss, to take on HR Big Data with our workforce analytics platform, EmployeeBoss. In September we launched our CRM for recruiting firms, StaffingBoss, which will be a key driver in our launch into the US market in 2014."
"Our goal has always been not to just take a lead from the amazing pace of Cloud innovations happening in the US, but to build Cloud solutions that genuinely meet the needs of and delight our customers here in Asia. To receive recognition for this on a global platform of excellence such as The Cloud Awards marks a great end to 2013 and is a sign of things to expect from HRBoss in 2014."
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: "Every year, we think we must have met the ceiling on how high the standard of entries will get. Every year those expectations are smashed, as a new wave of Cloud pioneers and innovators shows us their successes – and more importantly, their drive for success."
"Cloud technologies are like no other, showing a remarkable ability to act as a catalyst for scalable, intuitive, hardworking solutions for business and modern life. We are lucky enough to be able to showcase some of the brightest and best."
"We’re seeing entries from Europe and the UK, from Canada, from the Middle East – and they’re matching pace with US offerings. It’s always sad for those who can’t make the final shortlist, even after splitting awards into geographic regions where necessary, but I can say that every single entry would have been worthy of a place in the final list."
Over 200 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, including the US, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.
Final winners will be announced on Tuesday, 28 January 2014.
