Top-rated talent acquisition and recruiting solution wins new clients in Australia, the United Kingdom, and Mexico.

We conducted an exhaustive and extensive appraisal of many competitive solutions before choosing SmartSearch

Oceanside, CA April 22, 2009 -– Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS) expands the international reach of SmartSearch, an industry leading talent acquisition management and recruiting business solution, with the addition of international clients including aap3, a leading global IT and business solutions provider based in the United Kingdom, Beauty, Hair & Health Personnel, a niche job board and specialty recruiting firm in Australia, and CPI AIM de Mexico which has configured its user interface in Spanish.

CPI AIM de Mexico is a provider of flexible staffing solutions in information technology and engineering throughout North America. Derek Grills, founder of CPI AIM de Mexico said, “I had been familiar with the SmartSearch product for many years and its many useful tools, and the flexibility of the system. The fact that SmartSearch offered a bilingual user interface made it an obvious plus for managing our large contingent database of skilled Mexican engineers and programmers. We have been very pleased with the implementation, training and support provided.”

Beauty, Hair & Health Personnel has launched a new, niche job board and recruiting service for the health, fitness, and cosmetology industry. This revolutionary website provides do-it-yourself recruitment tools for both employers and candidates throughout Australia, New Zealand, and beyond. The comprehensive web site is powered by SmartSearch and features tools for job seekers to upload resumes/CVs, browse posted jobs, and subscribe to a newsletter, all for free. Employers have the option of posting jobs and searching the candidate database for a nominal fee which can be paid on the site via credit card for instant access.

“We chose SmartSearch because of the system’s flexibility and customization capabilities,” said Jan Herdman, founder of the Beauty, Hair & Health Personnel site. “The branding was very important since we’re a new business, and we were impressed with the system’s advanced technology such as the ability to integrate with TextHub for cell-phone text messaging to support our promotion to candidates.”

With the backing of industry leading experts in London and the Silicon Valley, the newest addition to SmartSearch’s international client roster, aap3 supplies best in class resources and innovative engineering solutions, as well as office automation tools, web development, and business intelligence services. The company is expanding its managed services offerings, and selected SmartSearch for its powerful VMS-smart Vendor Management System add-on module to support growth in this area. “We conducted an exhaustive and extensive appraisal of many competitive solutions before choosing SmartSearch,” said Fraser Moule, Business Development and Group Bid Manager at aap3.

“With several modules to choose from, APS had the scalability and flexibility to support the breadth of our business model for managing contract IT workers, our own internal consultant hiring, and provide the Vendor Management System so we could expand our offerings to our clients. SmartSearch was the only provider that had a solution to support all three of these requirements with an equally good standard.” Other international customers served by SmartSearch include Parsons Brinckerhoff, an international civil engineering and transportation consultant with over 150 offices on five continents, Opportunity International, a non-profit organization that provides micro-loans to the working poor supporting entrepreneurship in 28 developing nations, and Rail Personnel, the world’s leading staffing resource website for rail industry professionals.
