MATAWAN, N.J., Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To continue serving Human Resources professionals with best-to-market software that is efficient, scalable and easy-to-use, iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for businesses of all sizes and industries announces the release of Talent Platform 14.2. The release solidifies iCIMS' best-to-market standard of software excellence and features major product enhancements that are tailored to meet the needs of today's modern recruiter operating in a new era of job seeking and recruiting, including streamlined organization, calendaring integration, and other intuitively-designed user experience advancements.
"The Human Resources industry is in the midst of a shift, a revolution really, toward a new set of talent acquisition processes and tools. Today's recruiters realize that to attract key talent, they need to leave obsolete tools and processes behind and embrace new technologies with social, mobile, and video capabilities in order to stay competitive," said Colin Day, iCIMS Chief Executive Officer. "Version 14.2 is the result of extensive research into day-to-day user activity, customer-based usability testing, and identifying new ways to improve efficiency and performance in talent acquisition. We have made it a priority to package our product offerings in a way that supports intuitive use, while fine-tuning the tools that our customers are using most for maximum accessibility and time-savings."
With the release of Version 14.2, iCIMS introduces its new "Suite Architecture" product platform design. Suite Architecture packages each element of the iCIMS Talent Platform in a more modern, intuitive, and efficient manner to maximize the users' ability to attract and screen best-fit talent. All screening tools and integrations logically live in one location within the platform for easy access and review. iCIMS Tools to Attract, Job Board Posting and Social Distribution, are now more tightly integrated within the iCIMS Talent Acquisition Suite, providing real-time requisition performance by channel, without leaving the platform.
Below are a few of the most prominent features and enhancements in iCIMS Talent Platform 14.2:
- Intuitive Design – An improved lighter, brighter user interface elegantly delivers all of the information recruiters need on a per-job, per-person basis, on one screen, potentially saving several hours a day spent looking at resumes and taking action.
- Calendar Integration Functionality – The calendar and appointment feature within iCIMS represents a new frontier in in-platform process innovation, making scheduling more efficient and effective. It allows users to coordinate multiple attendees at once in real time, according to the appropriate time zone, and seamlessly integrates with standard calendar providers (Google and Exchange 2010) without leaving the iCIMS Talent Acquisition Software Suite.
- Product Integration – Two of iCIMS' Tools to Attract features – Job Board Posting and Social Distribution – which help recruiters automate their open job postings to thousands of job boards and social networks – are now more tightly integrated within the iCIMS Talent Acquisition Suite, providing real-time recruitment advertising performance by requisition and by channel, without leaving the platform.
"We are advancing our product and releasing iCIMS Talent Platform 14.2 at a time when many organizations are becoming dissatisfied with the recruitment and ATS modules of their ERP and HRIS platforms. These organizations are reaching a tipping point; they are realizing that they need to invest in specialized, dedicated talent acquisition technology to achieve their strategic hiring objectives. We look forward to helping these companies meet their hiring goals and to continuing to serve our customers as they build upon their recruitment successes and continue to push best practices in the field of talent acquisition," concluded Day.
