We also think this is a really great opportunity for anyone who is looking at purchasing a HR technology solution to be able to learn more about several of the top systems in each category.
Hazlet, N.J. (PRWEB) January 30, 2009
iCIMS, a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of talent management solutions, today announced that the company has been named the two-time winner of the HRchitect “Beauty Contest” for talent acquisition and mid-market applicant tracking solutions.
Since November 2008, HRchitect, the leader in HR systems strategic consulting, has been presenting a series of webinars entitled "Assessing the Talent Management and HR Systems Landscape, an HRchitect Beauty Pageant.” Each “Beauty Pageant” focuses on a different category of HR technology, such as talent acquisition systems and mid-market applicant tracking solutions, and features six top vendors. Contestants compete by showing off their company story, service differentiators, value proposition and, of course, technology.
“As the leading Talent Acquisition Systems consulting firm, we feel a communal responsibility to create an educated public regarding HR technology decisions,” said Rick Fletcher, President and Founder of HRchitect. “We also think this is a really great opportunity for anyone who is looking at purchasing a HR technology solution to be able to learn more about several of the top systems in each category.”
During the November 14th Talent Acquisition Systems pageant, iCIMS was named the winner against such competitors as Silkroad, ADP – VirtualEdge, Authoria and Mr. Ted – capturing nearly 60% of the votes. On January 16th iCIMS was once again named a winner, this time for Mid-Market Applicant Tracking Solutions and against such competitors as Click & Hire, nowHIRE, SonicRecruit, SmartSearch and SmartRecruiters. Both wins were attributed to the company’s unique “Back to the Basics” approach, which emphasizes the value of superior customer service and an easy-to-use, flexible technology platform.
The most recent pageant gave participants a rare look into the decision making process of today’s mid-market organizations. In the current economic climate, it is the platform that can offer the most value and greatest efficiencies that is clearly favored and most looked for during the evaluation process. And with these criteria, it was iCIMS’ Talent Platform that clearly stood out above the rest. Unlike point solutions or modules, the talent platform makes it possible for corporations to manage their entire talent lifecycle through a single web-based system, eliminating the need to purchase multiple, costly solutions. Furthermore, customers do not run into cost creep for maintenance, upgrades or service fees and are able to upgrade without additional costs should organizational needs change in the future.
“The fact that iCIMS was once again selected as a winner really reiterates what we’ve seen from more and more companies as they align with our vision of going back to the basics and utilizing one easy-to-use solution that is supported by the best customer service team in the industry,” said Adam Feigenbaum, iCIMS’ Director of Sales and presenter for both pageants. “Specifically within the mid-market, where the majority of our clients have traditionally fallen, the fundamentals of cost-effectiveness and increasing efficiency are of top priority – and the single-source Talent Platform delivers on these levels.”
