Beeline Increases Investment with Global Infrastructure in Europe

Beeline to open a new data centre in Switzerland to support the growing data security and confidentiality requirements for European companies. Now servicing global customers and suppliers from three world-class data centres. ZURICH, March 11, 2014 – Beeline, a global leader in software solutions for managing the flexible workforce, announced today the creation of a European data centre located in Switzerland as further commitment to being the best global Vendor Management System (VMS) provider with regional services for international companies. Increasingly, European companies are concerned about liability and confidentiality issues associated with sensitive company and personal information, as well as data security. Companies are seeking Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions where data is hosted within Europe, closer to their operations and covered by European data protection and privacy laws. Beeline is sensitive to its European and international clients’ concerns, and values Switzerland’s neutrality as well as its commitment to the security and confidentiality of data. “Much of Beeline’s growth comes from our international business. As a subsidiary of Swiss-based Adecco, which operates in more than 60 countries, we are uniquely positioned to provide solutions that are tailored to the needs of our international clients,” said J. Douglas Leeby, Beeline President. “We conduct our business with a global mind-set and a truly localised approach of our services. We do not believe exporting a US-centric model is optimal for European companies. Over the last three years, we invested heavily in local talent based in region. Over 25 percent of our colleagues live and work in Europe and Asia. Our new Swiss-based data centre represents a substantial component of our global commitment and strategy.” In today’s economy, more than ever, European companies require VMS SaaS technology which hosts their secured data in Europe, ensures maximum data security and availability, protects sensitive data confidentiality, provides optimal system performance, and employs responsible disaster recovery protocols. Beeline commenced an initiative in 2013 to conduct a thoughtful and deliberate evaluation of options and will offer its state-of-the art Swiss-based data centre by June 2014. Beeline technology supports the sourcing and management of the contingent labour workforce for some of the world’s largest regional and global companies with active programmes in 67 countries, and implementations with global clients that will soon include an additional 23 countries. Beeline Software-as-a-Service platform offers one end-to-end solution across all countries, business units, and categories: temporary workers, professional contractors, project-based consultants, service workers, and freelancers. Every Beeline solution is delivered with powerful technology, actionable analytics, elegant user experience, flexible workflow and system configuration, unrivalled data security, and seamless integrations.
