Share Article

Multi-national financial services company automates candidate CV capture to improve hiring efficiency in a tight economy.

With most standard CVs, we’ve experienced high accuracy of the extracted data

Talent Technology Corporation announced today that Metropolitan, one of the largest Financial Services organizations in South Africa, is building a stronger candidate pool within their PeopleSoft Talent Acquisition Manager system through automated single-click CV capture using Resume Mirror Extraction Enterprise. Talent Technology Corporation is at the UKOUG 2008 Conference and Exhibition at the ICC in Birmingham, UK.

“For Financial Services companies like Metropolitan, the downturn in the economy means that top talent is increasingly difficult to attract. By recognizing the opportunity to drive a better candidate experience and make it easier to apply for a job through automated CV extraction technology, Metropolitan has captured the high quality candidates they are looking for,” said Praj Patel, EVP, Talent Technology Corporation, “This encourages more candidates to complete the entire application and ultimately generates a larger and better candidate pool by capturing CV data accurately within the PeopleSoft database and making it instantly accessible to recruiters.”

“With most standard CVs, we’ve experienced high accuracy of the extracted data,” said Bernard Du Toit, Senior Manager, Group HR System Solutions and Support, “It is an excellent tool adding tremendous value to the recruiting process.” Resume Mirror Extraction Enterprise also reduces the time Metropolitan’s recruiters spend manually entering CV information into the database allowing them to focus on finding and hiring quality candidates. Mr. Du Toit also shared his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “The implementation went very well. We received excellent support from the entire Resume Mirror team.”
