HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Findly Enhances Candidate Engagement with New Pollinators Innovation

August 15, 2014

Company Offers Out-of-the-box Integration of Lead Capturing Solution with its Keeper ATS to Enhance Talent Acquisition Process

SAN FRANCISCO (July 30, 2014) – Findly, the on-demand talent market leader and a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company, today announced the integration of its latest innovation, Pollinators, with its Keeper ATS, in order to improve the way employers find great talent. Through this latest product release, the company has integrated Pollinators, which are highly effective lead-capturing connectors that can be placed anywhere a job seeker engages with a company, with Keeper ATS, the company’s mobile-optimized applicant tracking system.

 

Now standard for all Keeper users, the integration brings significant improvement to the way employers identify, engage and hire top candidates. Companies benefit from extending their employment branding into their Findly Pollinators and easily capture job applicants into their Findly Talent Hive, giving them the ability to engage the talent community with new jobs and pinpoint specific positions for highly qualified candidates. Additionally, when applicants identified by a pollinator return in the future, their profile information can be updated automatically.

 

Findly’s goal is to change the way companies connect with top talent and streamline the process for hiring managers and candidates alike. With competition for top talent with in-demand skills greater than ever, recruiters need a comprehensive approach for engaging with candidates wherever they are. Job seekers increasingly expect the application process to be easy, intuitive and fast, and provide them with an overall positive candidate experience. By linking lead-capturing activities to the Keeper ATS, both parties benefit from a more streamlined, user-friendly and effective talent acquisition process.

 

Key features from this new release include:

  • Branded Pollinators: Candidates are presented with sharp-looking, custom-branded experiences that convey the experience of working for the company to help attract right-fit talent.
  • Relevant Experiences: The integration of Pollinators and Keeper ATS enables employers to maximize lead capture when candidates apply to jobs, log in or want to join a talent community.
  • Integration of Findly Product Portfolio: Pollinators add candidates into the employer’s Talent Hive, pass along a candidate’s email address into Keeper and update the Talent Hive profile information for returning applicants, creating a more streamlined process for finding and connecting with job candidates for truly on-demand talent.

“The ability to engage with candidates through a number of avenues, such as careers sites, social media, job boards and more, and present a fully branded experience is essential not only to finding qualified talent, but keeping the best candidates engaged,” said Jeff Kreutz, Findly’s senior vice president, Products. “By integrating Pollinators with Keeper ATS, hiring managers benefit from a simplified way to keep real-time information about their candidates, while providing a more engaging experience that keeps those individuals active members of their talent community.”

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: State of Delaware Selects WorkForce Software to Consolidate Key Workforce Management Functions

August 15, 2014

Enterprise-wide Deployment Will Yield

Process Efficiencies and Enhance Reporting

LIVONIA, Mich. (July 29, 2014) – WorkForce Software, a leading provider of workforce management solutions, today announced the State of Delaware has selected the company’s EmpCenter® suite to automate time, attendance, leave and scheduling functions for all state agencies. WorkForce Software was one of several vendors the State of Delaware considered in a highly competitive selection process.

Historically, the differing needs and complex requirements of the many Delaware state agencies had prompted each to manage time, schedules and leave with separate systems. Recognizing the potential for improved consistency and cost savings, the State planned an initiative to consolidate these critical functions through an enterprise-wide, cloud-based software solution. Critical requirements included the ability to cover all employee groups, provide greater efficiency of scale and reduce infrastructure and operational expenses.

The simple web-based time entry and time-off request features provide a more convenient experience for employees.  Proactive alerts, real-time monitoring of schedules and labor costs, and detailed reporting will all help managers work more effectively. Moreover, WorkForce Software’s unique leave case management capability, which consolidates all documents and timelines related to an FMLA or other leave type, allows for a comprehensive workforce management solution from one provider.

“Large employers in all industries are seeking ways to improve the predictability, consistency and cost-effectiveness of their time, scheduling and leave management practices. EmpCenter represents an ideal solution because it allows those organizations to gain greater visibility and control, while simplifying the day-to-day tasks for managers and employees,” said Michael Jepsen, senior vice president of Sales for WorkForce Software. “We are excited to work with the State of Delaware and help it achieve greater cost efficiencies through an enterprise approach to workforce management.”
