HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Introducing Entelo Inside: Helping Employers Leverage Previous Applicants to Find Next Great Hire

October 16, 2013

Breakthrough Solution from Entelo Enables Employers to Maximize the Value of their Recruiting Technology Investments

SAN FRANCISCO (October 9, 2013) – Entelo today announced the launch of Entelo Inside, a groundbreaking new solution that leverages Entelo’s real-time social data, advanced search technology and predictive analytics engine to enable employers to tap into an often underutilized source of candidates: the people who have previously applied to their companies.

At a time when candidates learn new skills and develop their expertise faster than ever, the information organizations maintain in their applicant tracking systems (ATS) and candidate relationship management (CRM) systems about previous applicants can quickly become outdated. Such older data represents missed opportunities for talent acquisition, as the employer may not realize the perfect candidate is right in front of them. Entelo Inside was developed to address this issue by integrating directly with an employer’s ATS and CRM technology to help ensure that high-quality candidates are not passed over simply because the individual’s data within the company’s databases is not current.

Entelo Inside works across CRM and ATS platforms, ensuring data from the company’s list of previous applicants is matched with robust Entelo profiles built from real-time social data. Delivered through a proprietary interface, Entelo Inside allows for a multitude of advanced searches to be run and enables previous applicants to be stack-ordered by various metrics that correlate with expertise and experience. In addition, the solution identifies and provides early indicators, using Entelo’s proprietary algorithm, that a previous applicant may be considering a job change, helping employers gain the upper hand in recruiting top talent.

“In today’s competitive hiring environment, employers need the insight to identify the best candidates and engage with them before their competitors do,” said Jon Bischke, founder and CEO of Entelo. “Entelo Inside gives our clients a significant advantage by providing up-to-date, relevant information about their qualified previous applicants, helping them utilize this under-tapped source of hire. Within days of deploying Entelo Inside, employers can gain tremendous insights based on their own rich data and candidate pools and maximize their recruitment technology investments by engaging with the candidates who are a great fit for their open positions.”

With this type of intelligence built into the platform, Saba Cloud can continuously learn about the needs of end users and automatically provide intelligent recommendations about the people, content and ideas that help employees be more productive on the job and effectively develop in their careers. Saba’s intelligent platform also takes the end user experience to the next level by constantly providing users with the most relevant and useful content automatically, without having to search for it.

“We continue to deliver innovation in our Saba Cloud platform to enhance what we believe is the most scalable, secure and intelligent in the industry,” said Shawn Farshchi, interim CEO at Saba. “Our more than 11.1 million cloud-based users, across the globe, are benefitting from Saba’s approach to talent management, one that focuses on people development and empowerment in the new world of work.”

In addition to the intelligent machine learning, Saba also has made innovative enhancements in several other areas of its people development platform, including:

•             Social: The Saba Cloud platform now provides clients with the ability to transform traditional talent management processes with social and collaboration technology at their own pace. Through a simple administrative control, clients can turn their social features on and off with a flip of a switch to fit their business needs. Saba has enhanced the ability for experts, throughout the organization, to create and contribute content via robust idea labs, and streamlined document and link sharing.

Saba Cloud’s updated mobile capabilities include the ability to access virtual classroom sessions and meetings through secure single sign-on, the ability to complete and track learning activities including on-the-job training, connect with co-workers, collaborate in groups, participate in discussions, and also provide social rewards and feedback. An important security feature, users have the ability to automatically wipe sensitive corporate training data from mobile devices automatically after a configurable period of time.

•             Learning: All Saba Cloud capabilities have learning at their core. Saba has a single unified platform with built-in social, mobile and collaboration technologies combined with learning. As a result, the company has some of the most robust solutions for all types of learning including traditional, mobile, social and unified virtual classroom. Saba also recently introduced new e-commerce capabilities to support for-profit training for extended enterprise ecosystems of customers and partners.

•             Engaging: Saba Cloud is designed for end users. Saba’s people-centric design provides a personalized, relevant and engaging user experience for managers and employees with built-in social rewards and feedback such as badges, impressions, PQ scores, sentiment analysis, and much more. This ensures employees are not only engaged with the Saba Cloud solution, but also with each other. Couple this with its elegant, simple and easy-to-use user interface, and Saba Cloud helps employees, managers and administrators achieve their corporate and personal workplace goals.
