We have unparalleled knowledge of the HR and Talent Management vendor community and can save you time and money in selection and implementation.

SilkRoad technology, a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today the integration of the OpenHire job delivery platform with Indeed.com.  With millions of job seekers and more job searches per month than any other job site, Indeed is the leading search engine for jobs.

SilkRoad’s integration with Indeed will allow SilkRoad customers to expand their reach to potential candidates. Jobs delivered directly to Indeed from OpenHire will be included in Indeed’s organic results and its network of more than 10,000 websites. 

This integration will allow SilkRoad customers to reach the single largest audience of both active and passive job seekers on the Internet.  SilkRoad technology has existing agreements in place with Jobfox and Simply Hired.

Through this integration, OpenHire customers will benefit from implementing automated tracking for all jobs delivered to Indeed. By automatically populating the source when candidates apply to jobs from Indeed, more accurate ROI measurements can be made by recruiters wishing to track their online recruiting efforts. OpenHire customers can also take advantage of Indeed’s free Job Analytics reports, which contain information about how well a company’s jobs are performing on Indeed. OpenHire customers can use this report to gain insight into what keywords candidates are using to find their jobs, what job titles are being clicked on most often, and how their jobs are performing compared to other companies on Indeed.

“We are excited to introduce SilkRoad’s OpenHire customers to the benefits of having their jobs included on Indeed,” said Samuel Fitzroy, Director of Alliances at Indeed. “Having jobs included automatically from this integration will ensure that all OpenHire customers are taking advantage of Indeed’s massive audience of active and passive job seekers.”

Companies have been using OpenHire to find and track top talent since 1998. Their patented job board integration, career site portals, intelligent searching, screening tools, and candidate communication tools make it easy to streamline workflow and lower recruiting costs, all while improving efficiency. These features, combined with Indeed’s reach, will allow SilkRoad customers to maximize the exposure of their jobs to candidates in the most efficient way possible.

Having jobs automatically included on Indeed also makes it even easier to sponsor positions and get additional targeted job seeker traffic.

“We are very excited to be working with Indeed,” said SilkRoad Director of Product Strategy, Thomas Boyle. “They have simplified the job search process for job seekers, while building an incredibly cost-effective tool for companies to attract the best talent possible.”

July 30, 2009

 

HRchitect featured SilkRoad in our May 2008 release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management and also includes them in our list of top Talent Acquisition Systems vendors that businesses should consider. SilkRoad participated in the Onboarding Systems panel on June 10, 2009 as part of theHRshow. SilkRoad competed in the HRchitect Beauty Pageant on Onboarding Systems in January 2009 where they were crowned the winner. Brian Platz, EVP and COO of SilkRoad also appeared on the HRchitect WebMingle on March 20, 2009. If you are looking for a new Talent Management System, or any HR system, talk to HRchitect first. We have unparalleled knowledge of the HR and Talent Management vendor community and can save you time and money in selection and implementation.

SilkRoad technology, inc., a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced its second quarter earnings for 2009 marked the 24th consecutive period of sales growth for the company. Highlights from the quarter include several new strategic partnerships, continued industry recognition and customers purchasing multiple Life Suite solutions.

“Strategic partnerships help us to reach our goal of helping clients recruit and retain the best talent for their organizations. With partnerships such as the ones we have entered into this quarter, we are able to offer our customers a broader range of services, and often times reach a greater number of organizations,” said Andrew J. “Flip” Filipowski, Executive Chairman & CEO of SilkRoad technology.

In April, SilkRoad joined Jobfox in the introduction of ResumePal, the recruiting industry’s first universally accepted online employment application.  ResumePal works seamlessly with SilkRoad’s recruiting management system, OpenHire, and revolutionizes the way applicants and employers connect by eliminating time spent completing forms and allowing employers to get more accurate candidate information.  By completing a one-time online career profile, job seekers are able to apply at multiple companies by submitting with two clicks, instead of completing separate applications for each job listing.

Additionally, this quarter SilkRoad partnered with Simply Hired, the world’s largest job search engine and advertising recruitment network, allowing SilkRoad customers to even further expand their reach. Jobs indexed by Simply Hired through OpenHire will provide customers the ability to distribute and include their jobs in the organic listings on Simply Hired’s network of over 5000 new locations, including social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Plaxo. The partnership allows SilkRoad customers to reach both active and passive job seekers in new and innovative ways.

New Q2 2009 OpenHire clients include: Applied Extrusion Technologies, Inc., Arista Care Health Services, and SWBC.  

SilkRoad also announced a partnership with Deltek, Inc., the top provider of enterprise applications software for project-focused businesses, in May. The partnership makes SilkRoad’s talent management solutions more accessible to the government contractor market and other project-based industries such as accounting and engineering.  The companies have long maintained a strong relationship but this partnership provides an even stronger integration between Deltek’s market leading HRIS solution Costpoint, and SilkRoad’s Life Suite. Among other benefits, these solutions will provide for a more efficient onboarding process, thus increasing day one readiness and maximizing employee productiveness in the shortest time possible.

In the second quarter SilkRoad received much industry recognition including: 

  • American Business Awards- SilkRoad was a finalist in “Customer Service Team of the Year” category in May for the American Business Awards.  The awards program annually honors companies and generates public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people worldwide.
  • Network Products Guide- Network Product Guide honored SilkRoad with a 2009 Product Innovation Award.  The award recognizes vendors from around the world that are responsible for innovative and ground-breaking products bringing essential and incremental changes in all areas of information technology.
  • HROA Award- SilkRoad was a nominee for an HROA award for the “Customer Relationship of the Year” with client, Plante & Moran.  The 2009 HROA Awards theme was “Be Innovative,” honoring individuals and organizations who have exhibited a commitment to innovation within the HRO industry.
  • Tech 50- For the second year in a row SilkRoad was included as a 2009 Tech 50 winner by TechJournal South.  Tech 50 companies are recognized as the most innovative regional companies and are evaluated by technology innovation, management team, marketplace potential and success of execution.

Healthcare and health products continue to be a strong industry for new clients. Representative new healthcare clients signed in Q2 2009 include: Des Moines University- Ostepatic Medical Center, Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Comprehensive Health Services (CHS), McLeod Regional Medical Center, and Sport & Health Inc.
