Hazlet, NJ and Owings Mills, MD (PRWEB) January 22, 2008
iCIMS, a leading provider of web-based Talent Management Solutions (http://www. icims. com/), and Background Screening Industry innovator Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) has announced the availability of an enhanced interface between their best-in-breed recruitment automation technologies. Since 2005, the alliance has allowed users of iCIMS’ iRecruiterTM Talent Platform to utilize EBI's full spectrum of award winning background screening, drug testing and occupational health care solutions through the interface of the two software platforms. Today’s developments takes this automation to the next level through a bi-directional interface which now returns results back into the user’s iRecruiter database.
The interface enhancements are designed to help HR professionals become even more efficient in evaluating candidates (http://www. icims. com/) and more competitive in their race to introduce new talent to their organization. The bi-directional capabilities now available, coupled with EBI’s express return on screening data will further reduce the time it takes recruiters and hiring authorities to complete these crucial stages of evaluation, ultimately reducing a corporation’s overall time-to-fill metric.
“The reaction from iCIMS’ Customers to this service has been phenomenal. The enhanced exchange of data brings our clients one step closer to a paperless recruiting environment,” said Andrew Curtis, Director of Customer Service.
In addition, the expanded interface also includes iCIMS’ industry-recognized iForms technology, which turns previously paper-based processes into streamlined software-based results (http://www. icims. com/). Through iForms, users can have candidates and/or other hiring authorities complete background authorizations online. As a result it has significantly reduced any possibility of transcription errors and increased accuracy in data capturing. Not only does this centralize, all of the candidates’ information in one location, iForms also stores the printable version of the authorization document, complete with electronic signature, allowing corporations to further simplify the management of its compliance interests.
“EBI and iCIMS share similar philosophies as they pertain to the needs of HR technology (http://www. icims. com/) buyers,” said Colin Day, President and CEO of iCIMS. “The service delivered to customers in many ways outweighs the importance of the technology to users, though with EBI we have found a great ally that has been able to deliver both to our rapidly growing customer base.”
Rick Kurland, President and CEO of EBI, expressed a similar point of view. “Any partner that EBI aligns with, must first place a considerable value on the Customer Experience and that naturally led us to iCIMS,” he said. “With so many providers in both the Talent Management and Background Investigations arenas, our ongoing success is tied directly to our ability to build a strong brand through customer success.” Kurland concludes, “This unique bi-directional interface now provides iCIMS’ clients with access to EBI’s entire suite of award winning technology and services. With a single click, iRecruiter users will have access to EBI's expanded range of services which include background screening on both the global and domestic fronts, access to more than a dozen instant and express services which include EBI’s national criminal record file, motor vehicle records, credit reports, Social Security Number
Verifications, and paperless form I-9 compliance solutions. Along with our wide array of robust and powerful reporting options, clients will be able to effectively manage their background screening programs to unparalleled levels.”
