10,000 “smart” Job Seekers Discover Powerful New Technology

Smartfile is helping put 10,000 job seekers back to work by giving the power to know where and when to focus their efforts and improve their job search.

PRLog - Aug. 21, 2012 - At 10:31am EDT on July 19, one minute after BION Enterprises released the commercial version of SmartFile for job seekers, their revolutionary document tracking technology; they had their first customer sign up. Thirty one days, three hours and 15 minutes later, they had signed on subscriber number 10,000, propelling the early-stage, technology company into a very elite club of Software as a Service (SaaS) providers.

SmartFile can be used to track any document (such as resumes for job seekers, sales presentations, project related documents for teams or copyrighted works for digital publishers to name a few) that a user shares via email, across a network or online --- a SmartFile user can see when and where a document is opened, how many times it is opened or forwarded, and which part (pages) of that document have most time spent on them by the person opening the document.

What makes SmartFile really unique is that the viewing computer doesn't need any special software, plugin or player of any type whatsoever.  SmartFile works on any computer (Mac or PC) anywhere in the world. The majority of the new account users, according to BION's CEO, Mark Gray, have been job seekers using the technology to track resumes, make perfectly timed follow-up calls and improve their chances for success.

If SmartFile maintains its current rate of growth, BION will add between 250,000 to 500,000 users by next July. Just to put those numbers in perspective, social media giant Facebook signed on 2 million accounts in its first year, while GoToMeeting and Carbonite, both acknowledged leaders in the SaaS world, took about three years to bring in between half a million to a million accounts.

As Gray put it, "We have had over 100,000 unique visitors to our site this month and SmartFile’s customer sign-up rate is growing exponentially.  Hitting 10,000 subscribers today is monumental. We are pleased to be helping so many job seekers track down the job of their dreams. Very few SaaS providers achieve this level of traction as a percentage of visitors or widespread adoption. We had 600 new accounts in week one, 1200 in week two and over 3500 in week three. Those are pretty incredible figures in our industry."

BION CTO, Wyly Wade, who along with Gray is a co-founder of the company, agreed. "Over four weeks or so, we've had 10,000 new subscribers using SmartFile to monitor their resume during their job search, and that's why we developed the technology in the first place," said Wade, "We wanted give people the power to know when their important documents were being viewed and by whom."

Gray added, “Next quarter we expect to see substantial growth in subscribers using SmartFile. Further, we are seeing adoption of the technology for other applications: sales and marketing professionals, teams coordinating work-flow documents, and education.

The current version of SmartFile is limited to tracking documents on computers or laptops, Version 3.0, currently in development, will include document tracking on smartphones and other mobile devices. The way individuals and entities conduct life and business, is unlikely to ever be the same again.
