Salem, NH (PRWEB) April 14, 2005
HireAbility(r), a leader in integrated recruiting software and services, announced today that it has partnered with Position Manager(r), the leading Applicant Tracking System built specifically for healthcare recruiting. Position Manager has integrated HireAbility's ALEX(sm) [resume parser into its Applicant Tracking System, and the new functionality is available now to Position Manager's 470+ clients. The companies are kicking off the relationship by offering a two-week free trial of the time saving technology to all new and existing Position Manager clients.
The shortage of qualified medical staff has become a major challenge to the U.S. health care industry's efforts to continue providing high-quality services. As a result, hospitals' HR departments are more interested than ever in technology that enables efficiencies in attracting, processing, and hiring candidates. Faster time-to-hire and lower cost-per-hire are seen as immediate ROI for such systems.
With ALEX resume parsing, Position Manager now pre-populates an online web form with information it takes directly from the candidate's resume. Eliminating manual data entry from a hospital's web site saves candidates time and delivers a positive first impression. In addition, Position Manager automatically checks an organization's HR e-mail box, extracts any resumes, populates the forms, and saves the data to the client's candidate database. A clean, quick, automated application process sets Position Manager apart from more labor-intensive competing systems.
"We have looked at the other parsing solutions over the years and found HireAbility to have the most accurate technology with a fast processing time," notes Russ Smith, president of Position Manager. "They offered a partnership approach that really made sense for us and for our customers."
Automatic resume processing delivers immediate ROI by minimizing time spent on manual data entry, and extending the impact of marketing dollars spent to attract candidates. Usage statistics for sites that have integrated ALEX into their candidate signup have shown a much higher rate of conversion from visitor to applicant, resulting in many more captured candidate profiles.
"Healthcare providers have had a number of challenges in recent years and Position Manager has done an outstanding job addressing the market. Our partnership with Position Manager gives health care providers the benefit of new technology with the most established vendor and first-rate customer service," remarked Ken Smith, Director of Business Development at HireAbility. "Improving time-to-hire and cost-per-hire has become a hot issue in the healthcare industry, and ALEX goes a long way toward helping hospitals reach those goals."
