MATAWAN, N.J., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, is proud to announce that its Candidate Relationship Management (CRM) tool, iCIMS Connect, is recognized as the number one CRM within Global Strategic Management Institute's (GSMI) most recent infographic, "30 Indispensable Social Recruiting Tools."
Following GSMI's Social Recruiting Strategies Conference in San Francisco last month, the organization released an infographic detailing the "30 Indispensable Social Recruiting Tools" HR professionals should consider adding to improve their hiring processes. Within the CRM category, iCIMS Connect earned the number one spot, outperforming solution providers like Jobvite, Successfactors, and Bullhorn.
HR professionals using iCIMS Connect are able to attract and communicate with candidates who may not yet be ready to apply for open job positions, but are interested in the company's employment brand. Through a company's Social Connect portals, passive candidates can submit as much information about themselves as they want – from their basic contact information, to a resume, to a social media profile. Additionally, candidates can inform the company about certain preferences they may have, such as location, job titles, job functions, and departments for future employment.
Once candidates submit their information, HR professionals can easily stay in touch with these talent pools by utilizing automated, tailored email communications about company news, job opportunities, and more. By staying in routine contact, the employer can stay top of mind when the candidate is ready to make the transition to a new career opportunity and the candidate will be more knowledgeable about the company heading into the next stage of the recruiting process.
"According to recent research from iCIMS' Hire Expectations Institute (HEI), 54% of employed people are open to new job opportunities," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "HR professionals consider these passive candidates among some of the strongest potential hires. Recruiters can really benefit from a robust talent CRM tool like iCIMS Connect to help tap into and communicate with new talent pools for future hiring needs."
Within the first year in the market, iCIMS Connect shattered projected sales, doubling expectations for new sales and tripling expected sales to existing customers. Additionally, iCIMS Connect was honored with a 2013 Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for excellence in the Best Advance in Talent Acquisition Technology category.
