Carter Holt Harvey’s standalone HR venture, Mariner7, has chosen New Zealand-developed exo-net for its financial management system rather than the SAP software used by the parent company.
Mariner7, the company’s former HR division, sells online human resources software tools that were developed and used at CHH over the past four years. It launched in February and has two main products, Talent Manager and Talent Finder, aimed at helping managers find, measure, develop and motivate staff.
Mariner7 chief technologist Pat O’Connell says while CHH uses SAP, which is geared towards managing the needs of multi-faceted industrial giants, Mariner7 wanted to be “masters of our own destiny”.
O’Connell says the choice was made not so much on exo-net’s products as on its people.
"We liked the look and culture of the exo-net business model."
