NEW YORK – November 5, 2001
LONDON – 5 November 2001 – Globix Corporation (NASDAQ: GBIX) today announced that leading Intellectual Capital Management solutions provider Kprime Ltd. will host Deutsche Bank’s global online graduate and MBA recruitment solution at Globix House, the 180,000 square foot state-of-the-art Data Centre and European headquarters in London’s financial district.To ensure fast, reliable access to the application for both applicants and recruiters around the world any time, day or night, Kprime selected a fully managed complex hosting solution from Globix.
“Providing a global application service to handle large volumes of applications requires first- class technology infrastructure,” said Dr. Paul Worthy, Joint CEO of Kprime. “Globix offers the quality of service and support that Deutsche Bank requires. Globix manages the support staffing and technical infrastructure issues so that Deutsche Bank can focus on its core competencies.”
Kprime selected the Globix Dedicated Application Server Hosting (DASH) service for Deutsche Bank’s system, taking advantage of the Globix high-speed, fault-tolerant network and extensive peering agreements.
Kprime offers intellectual capital management applications, enabling companies to recruit, use and manage their skills and expertise effectively. The application chosen by Deutsche Bank, Kprime’s Konetic™ Recruit, is already being used by candidates applying to the bank’s graduate and MBA, full-time and intern programmes, as well as by the bank’s recruiters in Europe, North America and Asia.
Jacob Goldman, Vice President of European Sales for Globix, said; “I am pleased that we are at the forefront of cutting-edge business technologies that create competitive advantages, together with Kprime and Deutsche Bank. The Globix secure Internet Data Centre facilities and international backbone network are perfectly suited to support such a broad-based application.”
According to Vivienne Dykstra, Director Global Campus Recruitment Marketing at Deutsche Bank, Konetic Recruit is a major advance over existing applications. “In today’s market where organisations are recruiting fewer graduates, yet more students are applying, it is essential to have a tool that allows us to identify and attract the candidates we want in an efficient way. We were impressed by the application’s unique ability to almost fully automate the campus recruitment process, as well as by the quality and reliability of the hosting facility. With the Kprime application hosted at Globix House, we will be able to manage large volumes of high-value candidates quickly and effectively.”
Dr. Paul Worthy of Kprime noted that given current recruitment costs, more organisations are looking to use technology to manage the recruitment process. “The majority of recruitment technologies in the market today are little more that glorified job boards. The real value for recruiters is to make the back-end recruitment workflow and process more efficient for improved return on investment – not just attractive online application forms.”
