HR Alloy Rolls Out New Version of Its Advanced Qualification Management System™

Share Article

The only recruitment and assessment platform designed specifically for HR professional services firms receives major upgrade.

One day after announcing its enhanced management team, HR recruitment process and assessment technology provider HR Alloy has announced the new version of its Qualification Management System™ (QMS). HR Alloy is the first company to offer complete selection systems designed specifically for HR professional services firms in the fast-growing Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) field. The new version offers increased flexibility and unmatched implementation speed.


The upgraded QMS platform builds on an already extraordinary technology. HR Alloy’s solutions are based on extensive testing and a 13-year track record of successful software implementations in the HR industry. Their real-world experience with HR consulting firms allows them to design a system that closely matches their clients’ needs across the entire spectrum of the staffing process. The new platform adds enhanced reporting capabilities, new web services and more flexible authoring control.


HR Alloy’s QMS is unique among selection system platforms because of its entirely modular, rules-based architecture. Modular design allows a system to be custom-tailored to meet a client’s specific needs using an extensive library of tools and processes. The result is successful implementations in as little as a few days – rather than the months required for the traditional ground-up approach. This capability frees HR consultants from IT and administration issues and allows them to focus on serving their clients.


The flexibility of the QMS platform allows full authoring control at all times. While each system will initially be configured to match client business needs at deployment, it offers the power to make adjustments as those needs change – easily, quickly, and from any location. Process rules can be modified, or entire modules can be added, replaced, or removed. This flexibility makes each implementation highly responsive and able to scale up as the organization grows.


What makes this breakthrough possible is HR Alloy’s proprietary Qualification Process Execution Language (Q-PEL). Based on the business automation standard B-PEL, the new technology describes and modularizes the thousands of business rules and process variations which can occur in the corporate staffing process – particularly complex scoring algorithms required by assessments. “It’s a powerful technology in itself,” says CTO Paul Blanchard, but what makes it unique is the business knowledge it incorporates. Q-PEL allows users to deploy years of detailed business experience almost instantly.”

This fully modular architecture allows users to move processes in and out of a given system at will. Q-PEL is built on XML standards and is compatible with other elements, whether commercially available or proprietary to the client organization. For example, a user of the system can either connect to pre-existing tests or build their own within the program.


The Montreal-based company has been developing their technologies for 13 years, and has been extremely successful in the Canadian market as well as with high-profile U.S. clients. In 2004 the firm was awarded a grant by the Canadian government, which recognized their technology as a globally-significant innovation. More innovation is on the way. The next product launch is scheduled for October when they will reveal a revolutionary authoring software to develop realistic job simulations (RJS) using multimedia. This type of program until now has required expensive, time-consuming custom programming. HR Alloy will offer their RJS module as both a standalone product and an optional module for the QMS.


HR Alloy is the only provider of an advanced qualification management system (QMS™) for HR professionals, which enables process automation, authoring and delivery of complete recruitment and assessment systems. Their unique, recruitment-specific business process language allows them to implement selection systems to meet specific organizational needs with unmatched speed and ease.

Their clients include FurstPerson, Inc., Right Management Consulting, Inc. and SPB Organizational Psychology, Inc.
