iCIMS, a leading provider of web-based Hiring Management Solutions, announced today that Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Company has chosen the iRecruiter Applicant Tracking Solution to streamline and automate the organizationÂs domestic recruitment initiatives. Great-WestÂs implementation of iRecruiter allows their HR staff to more effectively manage the recruitment and retention efforts of Great-WestÂs 6000+ employees, spread throughout more than 100 office locations across the United States.
ÂGiven our aggressive plans to re-engineer our recruitment processes, while achieving our hiring goals in 2005, we decided that now was the time to redefine our hiring management program at Great-West, starting with the selection and implementation of a world-class Applicant Tracking Solution," says Tony Blake, Senior Recruiting Manager at Great-West. Blake continues, ÂOur primary focus throughout our evaluation process was to find a vendor that offered an user-friendly interface that would be welcoming to hiring managers, while also delivering upon the more advanced requirements of our seasoned recruiting team. It was clear through our research that iCIMS was the provider best-suited to fulfill the long-term functional and service-oriented needs of our organization.Â Great-West also cited reduced reliance on outside recruitment agencies, more efficient use of job advertisement resources, and overall process and administrative improvements, as key factors in their decision to move ahead with iRecruiter.
Earlier this month, iCIMS surpassed the 200-customer milestone, highlighting what has been another year of rapid growth for the Hiring Management Solutions provider. iCIMS has over 60 new client signings in 2004, already surpassing its customer growth totals from 2003 and further cementing its place as the fastest growing vendor in the Industry. Likewise, iCIMSÂ commitment to their clients, in the form of dedicated, proactive customer support and account services, has enabled them to forge strong relationships with users and develop long-lasting customer engagements. To date, iCIMS has yet to lose any clients to competing solution providers, though they serve as a strong alternative for corporations seeking more configurable and cost-effective technologies compared to their legacy hiring management solutions.
ÂiCIMS takes great pleasure in being selected by the team at Great-West, recognizing their evaluation accounted for all of the leading Applicant Tracking vendors, as well as their incumbent HRIS solution providerÂ, says Colin Day, President & CEO of iCIMS. ÂDespite the highly competitive climate within our Industry, iCIMS has remained at the forefront of the market due to our commitment to our ÂBack to the BasicsÂ development philosophy, as well as our unique ability to communicate tangible product and company differentiators to those evaluating such products and services.Â Day concludes, ÂThrough easy-to-use, highly configurable, and cost-effective solution offerings, iCIMS has established itself as the leading provider of hiring management technologies to mid-market corporations like Great-West. iCIMS looks forward to continuing our success in the mid-market, as well as broadening the services already available to small businesses and Fortune 500 organizations.Â
