New Customers for HireEnterprise and OneStep

In the third quarter of 2004, StepStone Solutions won two new European customers for the HireEnterprise solution with Canon Europe and with HRblue in Germany. In addition, three new customers have selected StepStone’s OneStep solution.

Canon Europe has adopted HireEnterprise to power its online recruiting across EMEA. The HireEnterprise product is built by and sold and supported in Europe by StepStone under an exclusive agreement. Within Canon, HireEnterprise will support 21 operating companies across 14 countries in 10 languages. In addition the solution will provide an internal recruiting platform to enhance staff retention and redeployment. The first sites will be launched in UK, France and Germany before the end of 2004, with other countries rolling out during Q1 2005.

In Germany, the recruiting services organisation HRblue has selected HireEnterprise to power its candidate relationships and recruiting programmes on behalf of its clients. “HRblue is a long-established provider of Executive Search, Personnel Placement, Outsourcing and Talent Management services. By adopting the leading e-Recruiting Software solution from StepStone and, we can make our product range even more attractive and innovative,” said Heike Gorges, Vorstand of HRblue AG.

In addition HRblue has joined the StepStone Gemstone Alliance and will recommend and offer StepStone Solutions products direct to its customers. In total StepStone’s recruitment solutions are now used by seven different German organisations.

In Belgium, OneStep has been selected by the recruitment agency HR Squared. In addition Janssen-Cilag who first adopted OneStep in 2003 have signed a new contract for a further term.

In Denmark, StepStone has signed two further customers for its OneStep product: Semler Gruppen the Volkswagen/Audi Distributor in Demark, and the recruitment agency Copenhagen Executive (formerly Causa Consulting). “As a recruitment agency for highly qualified job seekers we receive a lot of applications every day, with many arriving spontaneously. It is very costly and time consuming to manage these applications since we make a point of contacting all candidates for initial screening. With OneStep all these spontaneous applications can be assigned automatically to an appropriate category within the application management system and thus handled much more efficiently," said Jan Bach, Senior Consultant and Director from Copenhagen Executive.

With existing OneStep customers at Elite Miljö, NMI and SSI, this brings the total number of OneStep customers in Denmark to five.
