Conversant unleashed

conversant-ltdA cuddly retro orange C is the logo behind internet phone company, Conversant. Brewing for a couple of years now, the company’s mission is “to help medium and small business escape the tyranny of the big telecom providers”.

The new website launches Conversant into the sandpit with the big boys. The company offers virtual phone systems using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). VoIP is mainstream overseas and Conversant is aiming for a share of this market in NZ with its flexible packages. If you have many offices and mobile teams, Conversant says it can give you a better service than your current telco provider or PABX system. For businesses such as hotels, motels, serviced apartments, private hospitals or rest homes, Conversant has a room-service phone system to manage guests’ calls.

Kiwi entrepreneur looks to shake up the recruitment market with video CVs

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job. Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
