Taleo Powers Talent Exchange With Aria Billing and Subscription Management Platform

Talent Management Leader Accelerates Time-to-Market With Preeminent Cloud Billing Solution

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) - Aria Systems, Inc. (http://www.AriaSystems.com), the leading provider of cloud billing and subscription management solutions, today announced that Aria Platform Enterprise Edition has been deployed on Taleo's online talent marketplace, the Talent Exchange™. Taleo (NASDAQ: TLEO), the leading provider of on-demand Talent Management solutions, has chosen Aria to support the rapid expansion of Talent Exchange which is already used by over 400 customers across all industries and cited as customers' 7th most popular sourcing site since its initial launch just one year ago. 

On the Talent Exchange, Taleo customers can invite candidates who are not a good fit for them to join the Talent Exchange thereby giving the candidates access to even more opportunities, and in doing so the customers earn credits that can be used to download other candidates from the expanding Talent Exchange candidate pool. This unique model, along with free job postings and the ability to either use credits or pay for information on a per-candidate basis, provides Taleo customers with an effective no-cost / low-cost talent sourcing option.

To support this model, Taleo looked for a billing platform that could provide flexibility for future evolution while assuring Payment Card Industry (PCI DSS) Level 1 compliance. Aria Billing Platform was the best solution to address the key requirements and deliver the fastest time-to-market. Taleo takes advantage of Aria's integration with the Authorize.net payment gateway to manage payments.

"Talent Exchange is a strategic initiative for us, and we needed a proven partner for billing and monetization that could get us to market quickly," said Michael Boese, Senior Vice President, SMB and Talent Grid Field Operations. "Aria Systems provided the functionality, secure SaaS platform, and delivery expertise to implement rapidly with a complete billing solution."

"We've made significant investments to develop a monetization platform that can deliver revenue from strategic initiatives at world-class companies like Taleo," said Mike Morini, CEO at Aria Systems. "More and more SaaS and cloud companies are recognizing the power of working with the proven leader in billing platforms."
