European Export Success For NZ HR Group

February 14th, 2001


The New Zealand office of global e-HR consultancy Cubiks has secured a major European contract for one of its computer-based remuneration programmes. In addition, five other European organisations are currently evaluating the product with a view to purchase.

The programme is known as RemSuite and is the world’s first computerised job evaluation system. Created by Cubiks New Zealand country manager Kevin McBride, RemSuite has already achieved export success in Australia.

According to Kevin McBride, Cubiks New Zealand’s traditional strength and reputation has come from its remuneration expertise. Taking this capability, and applying it to an e-based environment, is an indication that knowledge-based products, regardless of their place of origin, can secure international markets.

“Our primary aim is to supply HR professionals with e-based systems that help them address and tackle critical issues. While other products available worldwide provide computerised data storage, the power of RemSuite is its use as an evaluation tool. This is what has made the programme attractive to a range of New Zealand organisations and is what has contributed to its export success,” he said.


According to Kevin McBride, using the system enables a company to create its own remuneration structure that can be maintained in-house, with support from external source only when needed.

“This is a major change from past situations when organisations were heavily reliant on outside support. In that sense RemSuite is certainly empowering. Its evaluation capabilities, ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness are also real attractions. The programme is fully customisable allowing information to be tailored to how the company wants to manage its affairs.

“The programme is dynamic and allows information to be compared with other remuneration-related, or industry data, to assist HR professionals evaluate options, make decisions and put workable salary structures into place,” he said.

The acceptance of the RemSuite product locally and offshore is, according to Kevin McBride, in keeping with a growing trend of HR systems being available via the Internet.

“E-HR is our area of specialisation and is a growing area of opportunity. E-HR is all about efficiency, employee involvement and the freeing up of resources to look at strategic issues versus processes. In an e-enabled working environment, there is opportunity for greater discretion, consistency of decision making and the opportunity for more individual input and involvement,” he said.
