Manufacturing Powerhouse Reduces Costs, Increases Access to Available Talent And Helps the Environment

With this level of complexity and configuration, most other vendors would still be working whiteboards and writing code.

Emeryville, CA Cytiva Software Inc. (CRX:TSX.V), a leading provider of on-demand recruiting software solutions, announced today the release of a new case study detailing the successful implementation of Cytiva’s SonicRecruit recruiting software at OSRAM SYLVANIA.

Last September, the well known manufacturer of lighting products chose SonicRecruit over a "who’s who" of talent acquisition vendors. The study covers the 90-day implementation cycle and the impact of the system over the initial portion of the first year of use.

Some of the highlights include

  •     $4,000/week savings from automation of manual resume processing
  •     Increased candidate volume from automated job board posting and source tracking
  •     Increased quality of candidates and faster time to hire metrics
  •     Successful Peoplesoft integration
  •     Compliance with OFCCP rules on Internet candidate searches
  •     Effective involvement of hiring managers and staffing vendors in the recruiting process

"To be able to perform a case study with a large manufacturer like OSRAM SYLVANIA, complete with months of data and experience, within 10 months of signing a contract illustrates the value of SonicRecruit." said Jason Moreau, CEO of Cytiva. "With this level of complexity and configuration, most other vendors would still be working whiteboards and writing code."

OSRAM SYLVANIA chose SonicRecruit for their price, configurability and advanced technology. With over 11,000 employees and 26 locations, the company knew they needed a solution that could be tailored to their specific needs, and change with them as their practices became more sophisticated.

Of all the benefits they experienced from SonicRecruit, OSRAM SYLVANIA points to the environmental impact of the system as one of the most important.

"Implementing SonicRecruit allowed us to eliminate thousands of pounds of wasted paper annually," said Maureen Crawford Hentz, manager of talent acquisition for OSRAM SYLVANIA. "This is a benefit that not only saves money and helps the environment, but also supports OSRAM SYLVANIA’s Global Care sustainability program and bolsters our employment brand."
