Video-based social networking solution provider WinHire Technologies has chosen IBM SmartCloud Enterprise solutions for their social media leveraging next generation business model. Win Hire preferred the IBM solution over Amazon to admit a secure enterprise class shared private cloud computing substructure.

WinHire is aiming to become a market leader by making use of technology to improve the recruitment process and minimize recruiting risks and costs. They plan to provide a virtual interactive platform between job-seekers and recruiters.

The IBM SmartCloud Enterprise’s rapid access to multi-tenant shared cloud computing infrastructure is scalable to the needs of the enterprise and priced accordingly. It also comes with a ready to use software catalogue and other licensing options.

“Our business model is very unique as the potential of social media in the recruiting process is not yet leveraged widely in the recruitment industry. By helping us harness the transformational capabilities of cloud computing, IBM has given us technical superiority, security and scalability and enabled us to take the recruitment industry to the next level,” said Prabhu, the Chief Operating Officer of WinHire.

WinHire believes IBM’s SmartCloud Enterprise has helped them to avoid upfront capital expense for procuring traditional computing infrastructure and has allowed them to build a sizable environment. It has helped to address challenges like identity fraud in the recruitment process and virtual communication with interactive video interview competence without a capital expenditure.

“The IBM SmartCloud Enterprise offering is very attractive to organizations that want to expand quickly and have varying computing demands. Using the IBM SmartCloud, WinHire will be able to deploy their application, globally, much faster via automation and rapid provisioning to create a competitive edge,” said Vice President, Offerings Management & Development, Global Technology Services for IBM India/South Asia, Akash Saxena.
