"The release of Unifi represents a groundbreaking event in the human capital management space. We are providing organizations with unprecedented access to the intelligence they need to make smarter decisions regarding their most important asset -- their workforce," said Lois Melbourne, Aquire's chief executive officer. "We pioneered enterprise organizational charting, and that is still a very important aspect of what we do, but with Unifi we've combined a structural view of the organization with detailed workforce information housed within disparate data sources to provide decision makers with access to true workforce intelligence."
