Monster, the leading global online careers property, and Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc.

The jointly-developed solution allows customers to streamline the hiring process by consolidating candidate sourcing and applicant management, resulting in increased recruiter effectiveness and improved tracking capabilities

Incorporating SmartSearch Online, APS' flagship applicant tracking system, the Monster integration offers recruiters and candidates the following benefits:

  • Real Time Posting – Customers can post jobs from SmartSearch Online to Monster more efficiently than ever before. Job postings are now uploaded faster than ever to Monster making them available to job seekers almost instantaneously.
  • More Career Site Traffic – When a job seeker applies for a job posted on Monster from SmartSearch Online, the candidate is re-directed to the customer's career center on their corporate web-site.
  • Reduced Data Entry – Recruiters searching the 48 million resumes in Monster's database can forward candidate resumes directly to SmartSearch Online. Candidate information is automatically loaded into their SmartSearch Online database, eliminating the need for data entry.

Recognizing the strategic advantages offered by this integration, more than 50 SmartSearch Online customers have implemented these tools. "Belcan was very pleased to learn that the much-anticipated partnership between APS and Monster has become a reality,” said Leigh Ann Pagnard, Vice-President, Belcan Corporation. “At the click of a button, our recruiting team members are now able to post immediately to the industry's leading website. It has improved our internal efficiency, as we no longer have to bother with the double-entry of information."

“We are proud and very pleased to be able to offer our clients this new level of integration with Monster,” said Doug Coull, CEO of APS. “APS – SmartSearch Online is one of only five vendors selected for the Monster ATS Partner Program; this is a testament to our commitment to providing advanced solutions that drive business results for our customers.”
