TikForce and WorkPac tick off on integration deal


Australian regulation technology digital identification and verification firm TikForce has done a deal with labour hire and recruitment company WorkPac to integrate its technology into the recruitment company’s candidate management process.

Under the deal, WorkPac will incorporate Perth-based TikForce's work validation technology into its workforce solutions process, so that candidates applying for jobs through WorkPac will be required to be verified using the TikForce technology, before being placed in a role.

WorkPac processed more than 40,000 job placements in FY 2014/15 alone and, under the terms of the agreement, TikForce will receive a fee for each candidate who needs to be verified, providing what the company says is a “new and substantial source of revenue”.

TikForce's platform provides the ability to validate the credentials of users, enabling companies to undertake police checks and to verify other critical documents and the company says it is designed to “stop embarrassment for companies, organisations and government entities”.

WorkPac managing director Praanesh Prasad says TikForce provides an “innovative and efficient solution that will give us a competitive edge in the marketplace. Partnering with TikForce will enable us to provide a superior offering to a range of our existing clients".

Prasad says WorkPac has more than 750,000 candidates on its database and provides “human capital” services to the mining, construction, engineering, oil and gas and healthcare sectors.

The deal announced on Thursday follows TikForce’s re-listing on the ASX in April after successfully completing a reverse takeover of Palace Resources and raising $4.5 million.

Both TikForce and Workpac say they have also identified a number of near-term major tenders and projects that they have committed to collaborate on.

TikForce chief executive officer Kevin Baum, who has been in the management teams of a number of technology companies since 1987, says “working with Australia’s leading private organisation in the labour hire field presents a unique opportunity to establish TikForce as the 'go-to' RegTech solution for companies in this key industry sector”.

“This agreement has the potential to transform our company with respect to its earnings perspective. It is anticipated that the partnership will lead to near-term and significant income from verifying and validating candidates. I anticipate that we will be announcing a number of exciting additional developments for our company over the coming weeks or months.”  

The deal with WorkPac follows TikForce’announcement last week of an agreement with e-learning company Mediasphere that the company says will drive immediate recurring revenue and “significant market adoption” of the company’s worker identity and credentials verification platform.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
