Leaders in talent management software combine to serve K-12 and higher education, further supporting the needs of educators and accelerating growth strategies

Austin, TX—Feb. 19, 2015—PeopleAdmin, the leader in talent management software and services for education and government, today announced it will combine with Netchemia, the leading provider of talent management solutions for the K-12 education marketplace. With this transaction, PeopleAdmin expands its suite of talent management solutions that help organizations improve operational efficiency, minimize risk, and organize the entire talent management lifecycle, so educational institutions can focus on what they do best—hiring and developing top talent to improve student outcomes. The combined company will be named PeopleAdmin.

“Netchemia is an innovative, fast-growing organization that complements our mission to serve the talent management needs of education and government,” said Kermit Randa, CEO of PeopleAdmin. “These institutions are fundamental to the success of our society, and with the addition of Netchemia, we will continue to deliver the best talent management solutions that help build better organizations, better students, and, ultimately, a better future.”

Netchemia is the provider of TalentEd, the only unified, cloud-based suite of talent management solutions specifically designed to help K-12 organizations track and hire applicants, evaluate performance, and manage personnel processes and records. Netchemia also provides SchoolSpring, a career management platform and job board for K-12 educators.

PeopleAdmin will continue to offer TalentEd and SchoolSpring to the K-12 community, alongside its flagship product, SelectSuite®, the leading talent management solution for higher education and government. PeopleAdmin will continue supporting and expanding all three solutions as part of the company’s future product roadmap.

“We are thrilled to join an amazing team who, like us, works extremely hard to transform the systems and processes that make education possible,” said Carlos Antequera, co-founder and CEO of Netchemia. “This is great news for our employees and our customers. PeopleAdmin shares our philosophy and vision for the future of education, and we are excited to help expand their industry-leading solutions.”

Antequera has been instrumental in shaping Netchemia’s culture and the evolution of talent management products for education, and he will continue to do the same in his new role as Chief Product Officer of PeopleAdmin.

PeopleAdmin is the leader in talent management software for education and government, helping institutions save time, decrease costs, enhance visibility through improved reporting, and improve staff productivity and engagement. Already a leading and respected brand among colleges and universities, PeopleAdmin will join forces with Netchemia to serve the talent management needs of K-12 and higher education.

“With the addition of Netchemia’s loyal customer base, PeopleAdmin now serves more than 3 million educators and administrators, who in turn serve more than 15 million students across the complete education spectrum. Processing more than 10 million applications per year, we are positioned to help make a difference in our country’s future,” Randa said. “We’re bringing together two very innovative companies that are passionate about education. Current and future customers can expect significant benefits as a result of this transaction.”
