There are great risks for organizations in both recruiting unverified workers, and in having personnel working on site who are not qualified to be there.
A pioneering online platform, Cited, is giving businesses peace of mind that their workforce is checked and cleared for work, at time of hiring and throughout their engagement, and providing individuals with the opportunity to manage their career profiles.
Cited, developed by respected Australian software company Bright People Technologies (‘Bright’), is an easily navigated platform to manage worker authenticity, from the recruitment process through to onboarding, through to day to day workplace compliance. Cited provides a single source of truth, across every industry and sector.
Bright has been working with Mitrais for the past two years, utilizing the firm’s expert team of developers and testers in Indonesia.
Bright’s General Manager Product Development, Derek van Buren, said Mitrais’ exceptional customer service and strong work ethic were central to the success of the relationship. “Bright has 17 years of experience in workforce management software, and we were looking to capitalize on this when we introduced our new product, Cited, to the market last year,” he said. “It was important that we worked with an organization that shared our values of commitment, determination, and innovation. Mitrais has been a good fit for us.”
Derek first visited the Mitrais team in Bali and Yogyakarta in February 2016, and the initial Mitrais group comprised five developers. Currently, one developer and one tester work on other Bright initiatives.
