NGA.NET Enters New Era of Company Growth and Expansion, Rebrands as Acendre

Worldwide Release, July 14, 2015 – NGA.NET, a worldwide leader in cloud-based talent management software, today announced that it is changing its name to Acendre, as the company enters a new era of growth and technology innovation. The new name reflects the company’s position as a leading global talent management technology provider, delivering SaaS solutions for some of the world’s biggest governments and enterprises.

“As we continue to grow as an organization, we rebranded to align more closely with our evolving vision and global opportunity,” said Mike Giuffrida, Co-founder and CEO of Acendre. The new brand name is an acronym of Attract, Connect, Engage, Develop and Retain – reflecting the human resources vision that Acendre drives for its clients.”

Since launching in 1997 under the brand name New Generation Australia, which later became NGA.NET, the company has since grown immensely into numerous markets, serving over 200 customers worldwide. The rebrand reflects the company’s current focus on serving clients in multiple markets by putting ‘people’ first and centre of its priorities. This is further reflected in the new logo’s tagline.

Acendre provides secure, cloud-based software solutions for recruiting, on-boarding, performance, succession and development, people analytics and planning. The company’s solutions include:

  • People Analytics: A powerful business intelligence tool which allows organizations to report and analyze their workforce data, and provides insight for faster and better decisions.
  • eRecruit: An award-winning talent acquisition solution that helps organizations hire top talent faster and address onboarding challenges so that new hires are productive as soon as possible.
  • ePerform: A performance management solution that enhances performance and goal management, improves employee engagement and helps organizations improve succession and development planning.

PricewaterhouseCoopers recently reported that 59 percent of global CEOs said that digital technologies are aiding in finding, developing and retaining talent, and 46 percent use technology to analyze how skills are being deployed in their organization.Acendre helps clients extract, analyze and report on staff-related data, and as the war for attracting and retaining talent continues to be a pressing concern for leaders in all industries, the company is well positioned to address future demand.

Giuffrida commented, “C-level executives are focusing on using data to make decisions in all departments, and HR is no different. Just as finance, operations, sales and marketing teams have benefited from business data analytics, Acendre offers HR teams the opportunity to benefit from this approach too. Acendre’s solutions empower our customers to understand and address their people needs more effectively. The rebrand represents an exciting growth phase for the company as the data revolution continues in HR.”

Acendre has strong credentials in the government sector. In Australia it counts 85 percent of the Australian Federal Government as customers and in the US, it has over 30 federal government agency customers including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which is made up of 29 agencies and 110,000 employees. The health and education industries are also key verticals for Acendre, due to the sectors’ large workforces and process-driven staff management practices. Acendre is working with many clients in these industries to streamline and automate their talent management systems through their SaaS-based technology solution.
