Fremont, Calif. (PRWEB) September 8, 2005
JobFlash, the pioneer of speech recognition based recruiting solutions for hourly workers, today announced the implementation of JobFlash Connect™ on the heels of the company's recent compliance certification by the HR-XML Consortium.
“JobFlash Connect is the missing link for companies using HRIS systems to reach out to job candidates without internet access,” says JobFlash CEO & President Mike Krueger. “In the hourly-wage market, that means connecting with the 67 percent of job-seekers who aren't regularly online. HR-XML Consortium certification is the ultimate assurance to our clients that our unique phone application system can be seamlessly integrated with any HRIS system.”
With Connect, JobFlash accepts job postings from any HRIS system in an Extensible Markup Language (XML) format. Then, using JobFlash's telephone hotline, candidates apply to the posted jobs and JobFlash returns XML candidate data documents to the HRIS system. JobFlash can also include hyperlinks to sound files that were recorded by telephone as Talking Resumes™, enabling hiring managers to listen to candidates' spoken responses.
In a recent implementation, JobFlash worked with several HRIS vendors to augment their applicant pool with phone applications for a large enterprise. The JobFlash Connect system securely sent phone applications in XML document format to the final client's HRIS system on a nightly basis.
“JobFlash Connect offers an easy to implement and scalable implementation based on industry standards,” says JobFlash co-founder and Chief Technical Officer Uday Walia. “Clients maximize their HRIS investments by simply adding JobFlash telephone applications and eliminating manual data entry as well as any manual integration burden.”
The HR-XML Consortium's data interchange standards provide flexible, extensive templates that can readily be used to integrate disparate systems.
“We are pleased that leading technologies such as JobFlash's unique and widely used telephone application system are now exposed and leveraged through integration using HR-XML's open standards,” says Chuck Allen, executive director of HR-XML Consortium, Inc. “More and more, HR decision-makers are making compliance with open standards part of the criteria they use when procuring HR solutions.”
Founded in 2002, JobFlash's bilingual interactive telephone and web service automates sourcing, screening, scheduling and paperless hiring of hourly employees. JobFlash registers phone candidates with a powerful JobMail™ Box that enables applicants to listen to openings, apply for jobs, check status, update their information and schedule appointments for interviews. JobFlash clients include leading casinos, restaurants, cruise lines, hotels, retailers, security companies, hospitals, airlines and HR consulting firms.
The HR-XML Consortium is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of a standard suite of XML specifications to enable e-business and the automation of human resources-related data exchanges.
