PageUp Disrupts U.S. Talent Management Software Market With Rapid Growth in Higher Education

Company's Industry-Leading Solutions and Expertise in Education Sector Help More Universities Transform Their Talent Practices

NEW YORK, NY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2014) -  Multinational Talent Management Software provider, PageUp, has cemented its place in the U.S. higher education market following a recent spate of significant client wins with prestigious universities and a formalized partnership with industry association, the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR).

The University of Alabama is among the latest institutions to have partnered with PageUp, recognizing a need to breathe new life into its talent management processes and adopt a more tailored solution. The university is set to share its story in a co-presentation with PageUp at the upcoming CUPA-HR Annual Conference, to be held September 28-30, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas, as part of PageUp's renewed CUPA event sponsorship arrangement. PageUp will be exhibiting its solutions for the higher education sector during the conference at Booth No. 601.

Rob Hill, senior vice president of Sales, North America at PageUp, said the company's rapid growth in higher education is testament to its deep roots in the sector and a growing need among universities to innovate and modernize their talent management practices.

"PageUp has been working with higher education clients globally for over 15 years, meaning we understand the intricacies that make the sector unique, such as recruiting staff versus faculty -- as well as the need for a system that's highly configurable and built-for-purpose," Hill said. "We are continuing to bring a fresh approach to the way universities and colleges recruit, manage, develop and retain talent, with cutting-edge mobile, social, cloud-based technology, supported by measurable analytics -- and the market is certainly responding."

The recent client wins come off the back of a successful financial year for PageUp, having continued its rapid double-digit growth in 2013/2014. PageUp was again recognized as a Visionary Company in Talent Management in the 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant, and released a series of new product developments, including Candidate Relationship Management (CRM), putting it squarely on the map of talent management software providers disrupting the industry.

"Higher education employers are realizing they don't have the tools in place to handle the challenges unique to this sector. As a result, many higher education institutions have turned to PageUp for our expertise in helping them manage their full talent management lifecycle via our single platform solution," said Hill.

He continued, "Clients want access to intuitive features such as search committee functionality, mobile-enabled candidate experience approval processes and career-path mapping technology to help aid the retention of top talent. This is where we have really been able to change the game for our U.S. higher education clients."
