Spectators then vote after each portion and the vendor with the most total votes receives the medal and is named HRtechnology Ironman. In the competition vendors must prove their advantages over the competition in each category including:

Swimming – In this category vendors discuss company history, overview, specific identity, financial viability, marquee clients and leadership team.

Biking – During the biking portion the vendors showcase their product’s functionality, technology/integration, usability and configurability.

Running – In this segment of the competition the vendors discuss the key differentiators of their solution and their company.

Media Interviews – Finally, the vendor is judged based on answers to questions from the audience.

At the conclusion of the competition, SilkRoad technology was voted the winner and named HRtechnology Ironman.

“We enjoyed participating in the webinar and are honored the audience selected us as the Ironman winner,” said Thomas Boyle, Director of Product Strategy, SilkRoad technology. “We always welcome any opportunity to show what sets our products and company apart from other vendors.”

Integration with World’s Leading Search Engine for Jobs Expands SilkRoad Clients’ Reach

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, 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.”
