Anchorage-Based Cloud49 Unveils Software for Human Capital Management
Fireweed Human Capital Management System (HCMS), a cloud-based application designed to assist businesses with human capital challenges, is now available to companies of all sizes, according to Cloud49, the company that developed and distributes the software. Cloud49 specifically designed Fireweed to assist Alaska Native Corporations with their unique human capital challenges.
The Fireweed suite is used to track, manage, and report on multiple human resource-related functions within companies and organizations. It comprises five applications: Compliance and Policy Management; Shareholder Management; Student and Scholarship Management; Board of Directors Management; and Compensation Management.
Each application can be used alone or in conjunction with other Fireweed modules. Fireweed is not installed on customer servers, but instead runs on secure Microsoft servers within the United States. Because the technology is cloud based, customers do not need to purchase expensive equipment or hire programmers, and the application is available anywhere in the world.
"Human capital management systems have always been a luxury that only large corporations could afford," Nathaniel Gates, Cloud49 President and founder, said. “Now these exclusive tools can be used quickly and easily by anyone.”
Fireweed HCMS is available as a subscription service and licensed by the number employees and stakeholders within the system.
Cloud49 is the premiere provider of enterprise-class Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for organizations of all sizes. Headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, the company also operates regional offices in Bothell, Washington, and Valencia, California.
