REF NO.: 17

SUBJECT: Genesis’ Creatros Technologies Inc. launches skills-tracking software

DATE: Nov. 30

Creatros Technologies Inc., a Newfoundland and Labrador technology startup company currently enrolled in Genesis’ Enterprise program, launched its skills-tracking software, SkillsHawk, today, Nov. 30.

The software is available in the Atlassian marketplace. Atlassian is an Australian software company that develops products for software developers and project managers.

SkillsHawk seamlessly integrates with Jira, Atlassian’s project management software. With the growing need for specialization and the increasing number of organizations taking advantage of advancements in technology, managers need to form teams based on their employees’ demonstrated skills and work history instead of educated guesses.

Finding the right employee in an organization based on their knowledge and skill set is not always easy for decision-makers. Now, with the first release from Creatros, SkillsHawk will automatically determine the best candidate for an organization’s specific needs based on demonstrated skills.

“SkillsHawk offers a great solution to instantly find the right person based on the required skills within an organization,” said Arifusalam Shaikh, chief executive officer, Creatros Technologies Inc. “We feel this information being at decision-makers’ fingers tips will greatly enhance their abilities to optimize their operations.”

SkillsHawk is different from other skills-tracking software because it integrates directly into Atlassian’s Jira, using employee task history to determine the best match for a particular skill and knowledge base.
