Commerce Technologies And UAlbany Nanocollege Extend Joint Workforce Development Program

Albany, NY | Posted on December 2nd, 2010

Commerce Technologies Inc. ("CTI") and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany today announced the extension of a joint workforce development and recruitment program that has successfully supported 36 student interns - including 10 who have been hired by CTI's CommerceHub for full-time positions at its offices at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.

Through the initiative, students receive paid internships for research projects focused on software development, integration, prototyping and implementation for a variety of platforms - including drop-ship fulfillment, database and internal systems - that are critical to the work of CTI's CommerceHub, the industry's leading provider of integration and fulfillment solutions for multi-channel e-Commerce merchants.

Launched shortly after the company established operations at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex in 2004, the program supports the development and implementation of an advanced education, training and recruitment program for CTI's CommerceHub. The fast-growing IT firm employs more than 90 specialized technology professionals at its offices at the UAlbany NanoCollege, which represents an 81 percent growth in its workforce over the past seven years.

Stephen Hamlin, President and CEO of Commerce Technologies Inc., said, "We are excited to extend this innovative partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, which is playing an important role in developing the skilled workforce needed to meet CommerceHub's strategic technology and business objectives. We look forward to growing our team of information technology professionals, including the opportunity to help groom students to become future leaders in the IT sector."

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE, said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to continue to build on this successful partnership with Commerce Technologies Inc. Through this collaboration, our students are receiving unique education and training on IT applications enabled by nanotechnology, as well as lucrative career opportunities, and CommerceHub is further developing a highly educated, highly skilled IT workforce that both supports and enhances its competitive position in the marketplace."

The advanced education and workforce training that is part of the CTI-CNSE program also supports a growing number of nanotechnology-enabled IT applications - including radio frequency identification devices ("RFID"), global positioning systems ("GPS"), biometrics and other emerging fields - that integrate the design, deployment, utilization and management of emerging computing technologies.
