May 24, 2010 – PeopleMatter, a software company that provides end-to-end strategic human resource software solutions for small to medium-sized restaurant, hospitality, transportation and convenience stores (c-stores), has launched. The company has been in development throughout the first quarter of 2010, after acquiring Acadia Human Capital Solutions in late 2009. “After an initial strategic development period and successful customer trials, we are ecstatic to announce we are ready to hit four large and very fast growing markets, the restaurant, hospitality, transportation and c-store verticals,” said Nate DaPore, president and CEO. “Philosophically, we are passionate about helping our clients make their employees matter in the workplace and manage every stage of their career. Fundamentally, we want to change the way employers and employees interact with one another in the workplace.” The PeopleMatter software suite will offer a complete end-to-end strategic HR solution, specifically designed for ease-of-use among employees with a simple yet intuitive interface. PeopleMatter also has secured an executive team which includes Charles Wyke-Smith, vice president of product strategy; Tami Olheiser, vice president of finance and administration, who previously served in finance and HR roles and Microsoft, Great Plains, IA Systems and US Unwired; and Ken Haigh, senior vice president of technology, who most recently served as director of software development at Blackbaud, Inc.
