PDS’ Vista solution provides its clients with a comprehensive tool for managing human resource-related information
(PRWEB) October 4, 2006
PDS, an award-winning developer of web-based human resource and payroll systems, today announced its partnership with Burning Glass Technologies to offer resume parsing as part of its Vista HRMS (Human Resource Management System) as well as resume search and match capabilities as add-on functionality. This new offering will enable Vista clients to dramatically reduce the time and expense of processing inbound resumes and matching candidates and open positions.
“For many organizations, processing job applications is a daunting task as each job posting typically results in a downpour of resumes,” explained Pat Palmer, senior vice president at PDS. “By integrating Burning Glass’ artificial intelligence and predictive matching technologies into Vista, our clients will save a significant amount of time processing applications and will be able to more efficiently match good candidates with the right positions.”
“PDS’ Vista solution provides its clients with a comprehensive tool for managing human resource-related information,” said Matthew Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass. “Our resume parsing and search and match solutions will extend the reach of Vista by enabling a seamless collection and analysis of hiring data. The integration of these advanced technologies will empower human resource professionals and help them realize the full promise of HR automation.”
Burning Glass Technologies’ resume parsing solution, LensXRayTM, will be embedded into the Vista HR, payroll and benefits administration solution as part of its underlying technology. LensXRay deploys leading-edge technologies to read, understand and analyze unstructured resumes and job descriptions in most major document formats. In an average of less than one second, LensXRay parses out more than 100 resume facts. Automating this task enables recruiters to spend more time on more strategic activities and eliminates the need for candidates to complete tedious application forms.
PDS will also leverage Burning Glass’ LensMatchTM and JobMatchTM technologies in its Vista Search & Match add-on tool for those clients requiring more robust recruiting capabilities. LensMatch is a powerful searching, screening and matching tool using Burning Glass’ leading-edge, artificial intelligence-based Predictive MatchingTM engine to measure how suitable each candidate is for a particular position. The company’s JobMatch technology enables candidates to skip irrelevant listings on an organization’s website and jump straight to the jobs that fit their skills and experience.
