Tie-up with fellow Aussie tech success story will accelerate Xref’s US expansion plans
Special Report: HR tech platform Xref has announced a strategic partnership with leading Australian talent management company PageUp — a move that will accelerate US expansion plans for both.
A new partnership with PageUp provides several mutually beneficial synergies for the Australian companies, which are both enjoying overseas success already.
The integration of the technologies, which has been built by Xref using the PageUp public API platform, follows demand from mutual clients who were looking to use Xref and PageUp as part of their talent management workflow.
PageUp provides end-to-end talent management software, and it has already developed a strong brand and client base in the US, which presents a significant opportunity for Xref to accelerate growth in a relatively new market.
Once the integration is live, PageUp users will be able to use Xref through their existing PageUp dashboard, and Xref’s reference checking tool will become available via the company’s online marketplace.
More than 50 mutual clients will benefit immediately, with more to follow.
“We’re delighted to partner with Xref to add to our extensive marketplace of best of breed HR technology partners,” PageUp chief exec Mark Rice said.
“We have a continued focus on ensuring recruiters and candidates have an exceptional technology experience and Xref shares this vision.
“This partnership will allow mutual customers to initiate reference checks with ease and move candidates quickly through the recruitment process.”
Anglicare Sydney is one high-profile clients of both companies, and its recruitment manager Claire Pike said the partnership made sense.
“As a longstanding user of both platforms, we’re delighted about this integration. It is going to make a huge difference to the efficiency of our team and the experience we can offer our candidates as they move through the hiring process,” she said.
“We love working with smart, like-minded tech providers and are always especially excited to partner with those that come from a similar background and have shared growth aspirations,” Lee-Martin Seymour, CEO of Xref added.
“We have a great relationship with the team at PageUp and look forward to working together to provide customers globally with a secure, robust and streamlined recruitment journey.”
