Agreement revolutionizes the way recruiters search for candidates

Lexington, MA, September 15, 2004 – Webhire, Inc., a leader in talent management solutions, today announced a partnership with Eliyon Technologies, the largest source of information on business people and companies.

Webhire customers will now have the opportunity to gain the competitive advantage of Eliyon’s next-generation search technologies in Eliyon’s first integration with a talent acquisition and management solution. Eliyon enables recruiters and HR professionals to quickly source hidden talent by extracting biographical and company information from tens of millions of Web sources and building searchable individual profiles of business people.

"The Eliyon database of in-depth profiles and work histories on over 21 million business people provides corporate recruiters the type of hiring resources that traditionally have only been available to the retained search industry," said Gary Halliwell, president of Eliyon. "Webhire is a leader in talent management solutions and their decision to offer their users access to Eliyon's sourcing tools supports Eliyon's strategy to be integrated into the desktops of the hiring professionals everywhere."

“As the first talent management provider to partner with Eliyon, Webhire maintains its position as an innovator and thought leader in the industry,” said Susanne Bowen, President and Chief Executive Officer at Webhire. “Eliyon’s technology gives Webhire customers a unique opportunity to attract the best candidates by taking advantage of Eliyon’s unmatched searching tools to locate hard-to-source talent. The partnership directly supports Webhire’s strategy to cover the entire employment lifecycle, starting with initial attraction and sourcing techniques, to produce meaningful candidate relationships, more effective hires, and productive employees.”

Changing markets, wavering economies and a shortage of skilled labor all indicate a rapid decline in the number of qualified candidates available to fill open positions. In order to meet the evolving needs of recruiters, Webhire is dedicated to providing recruiting professionals with a solution that allows them to attract, hire and retain the right candidates at the right time. Eliyon provides the ability to identify and attract passive candidates in an integrated search and selection process.
