The new Version 15 also features advanced document management capability to support “green recruiting” with paperless doc storage, and enhanced ability to collect information from candidates via the organization’s Career Center.

With advanced API capabilities, SmartSearch® Version 15 adds more power to share data between applications. In addition, SmartSearch® supports integration with many internal and external applications—such as VoIP, text messaging, background checking, and pre-employment assessments—creating the optimum platform for sharing information, eliminating duplicate data entry, and ensuring data integrity to better manage talent acquisition and staffing.
