Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
Success in today's challenging economic climate demands that recruiting and staffing companies redouble their focus on speed, efficiency and accuracy in delivering well-qualified candidates to their customers. VCG offers recruiting and staffing firms exciting new integrated tools that enable that success with version 1.4 of their Pointwing Front Office recruiting software.
Pointwing Smart Match resume search, which is capable of reducing your time-to-find 100-fold, is the newest addition to the Pointwing Front Office recruiting software module. It gives you the fastest, most intelligent and accurate means of finding the ideal candidate for every requisition.
Fully integrating the Sovren (http://www.sovren.com)] Semantic Matching Engine, Pointwing's Smart Match resume search capability goes far beyond simple keyword searching, matching and ranking. Instead it uses sophisticated context-aware semantic matching of profiles between your job orders or candidate profiles and candidate resumes. This artificial intelligence, when applied to your resume searches, offers you more speed and greater relevance in the results.
Robert Ruff, founder and CEO of Sovren Group, noted that, "We're very pleased to integrate the unique capabilities of the Sovren Semantic Matching Engine with Pointwing. It gives recruiters the ability to not only find candidates that match the requested career and experience profile, but to also weight their search for people who fit that profile today, not years ago. For example, if you are trying to hire a sales manager with 10-20 years of career experience and five or more years in management, Pointwing Smart Match knows that a person who used to be a sales manager, but who is now the President, is actually not a good match. No other engine can do that."
Steve Taylor, President and CEO of VCG, said, "The recruiting and staffing industry has built its success on its ability to quickly respond with 'just-in-time' candidates and employees to help businesses perform better. With Pointwing Smart Match we've extended the Pointwing Front Office module's core functionality another step. We've developed a polished and customizable platform that gives recruiting and staffing professionals the means to deliver exceptional service quality with speed and efficiency. And that means more successful placements and job order fills - and greater profitability."
