Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
SilkRoad technology, inc., a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced its recruiting solution, OpenHire, has been ranked in the Champion quadrant in the latest Talent Acquisition Solution (TAS) Vendor Landscape published by Info-Tech Research Group.
With more than 400 available solutions from recruitment specialists, ERP/HRMS vendors and talent management suite vendors, the TAS market is flooded with vendors. SilkRoad OpenHire, with highly configurable career sites, ease-of-use and clean dashboards, was found by Info-Tech to be a leading product with optimal usability for small to mid-sized companies.
The report noted that, “Evaluating vendors by checking off a features list doesn't work anymore.” As many vendors offer similar functionality, “…how they [work] becomes the differentiator. As a result, workflow and usability become key evaluation criteria.” In addition to capabilities such as workforce planning, Web mining, social media integration, strong assessment and background checking, job offer management and onboarding, SilkRoad’s commitment to creating the finest end-user experience was recognized.
“We understand that organizations are engaged in a fierce war for talent, and have put a strong emphasis on the usability of our solutions to help ease and optimize the recruiting challenge,” said Brian Platz, COO of SilkRoad. “This recognition not only showcases the value that OpenHire adds to an organization, but also SilkRoad’s relentless focus on end user experience.”
Also noted in the report, as “a single platform that can scale to any size of organization in any industry,” SilkRoad’s OpenHire strengths included:
- Excellent career sites that can be easily configured and edited by end users, with no need to involve the IT department.
- Bidirectional integration with Outlook and an IE plug-in.
- Rich functionality for searching social networking sites.
