WCC's ELISE searches and finds jobs for jobseekers and vice versa much smarter and more meaningful 

WCC Smart Search & Match, a leading provider of high performance search and match software, hereby announces its strategic partnership with technology and consulting corporation IBM (NYSE: IBM). The partnership involves the integration of WCC's software platform ELISE with the IBM Social Program Management Employment solution, WCC and IBM will work closely together developing the market for these solutions.

IBM's Social Program Management Employment solution encompass advanced information technology, analytics and systems to focus on optimizing the key Employment processes: Applying for benefits and services, identifying people at high risk of unemployment & underemployment, finding potential employers and employees and building the skills for now and the future. Enhancing these key processes improves the citizens' quality of life. WCC's part in the IBM solutions focuses on supreme job matching and making sure people get the benefits they are entitled to.

A good social benefits system and support getting a sustainable job is crucial for social stability in any society and enables people without a job to make the transition back to, or up, the labor market gracefully.  WCC's software platform ELISE and its extensive expertise in this field help to find the right job for the person and vice versa in a much smarter way, increasing both the efficiency and the effectiveness of the job placement process. For those whom are dependent on entitlements, WCC's ELISE will identify the right entitlement for the right person, preventing fraud on one hand and, through IBM Social Program Management, delivering benefits to those in need on the other.

With an ever-changing society, making sure that the skills and competences remain up to date is of great importance. WCC's ELISE can identify the gap people have with the labor market, and give advice on suitable education and training in order to close that gap. Integrating into IBM Outcome Management allows people to build a plan to close the gap and track progress towards their goal.
