HireIQ Solutions Earns TEC Seal of Approval

Organizations that are looking to improve hiring decisions, reduce recruiting costs, and increase talent performance may want to consider HireIQ’s InterviewIQ.

HireIQ Solutions, Inc., the innovative company that improves the hiring and recruiting process for customer-facing organizations, announced today that its InterviewIQ solution has earned Technology Evaluation Centers’ (TEC) coveted certification status. In order to receive TEC’s seal of approval, HireIQ’s flagship virtual interviewing solution, InterviewIQ, had to meet rigorous specifications for recruitment and staffing solutions.

Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) is the leading advocate for the enterprise software purchaser. By providing objective technology research, detailed information about vendors and solutions, Web-based software evaluation and selection services, and expert advice, TEC helps private- and public-sector organizations choose the best enterprise software solutions for their unique business needs—quickly, impartially and cost effectively.

TEC certification is an impartial review that verifies a software product's ability to address real-world business processes. Certified products must meet the stringent guidelines specified by TEC’s analysts. All certified products bear the TEC Certified seal.

“We are delighted to have earned our TEC certification,” said Kevin Hegebarth, vice president of Marketing and Product Management at HireIQ. “It means that a trusted, independent third party has seen InterviewIQ up close and has evaluated its capabilities against a comprehensive set of requirements for recruitment and staffing products.”

The report specifically evaluated InterviewIQ across four main dimensions: Ease of Use, Workflow-driven Design, Ease of Implementation, and Innovation. InterviewIQ received positive mentions in each of these dimensions. Furthermore, InterviewIQ was evaluated in eight Functionality Benchmarks where it was consistently rated well above average in virtually every dimension.

InterviewIQ uses media-rich web and voice response technologies to lead an applicant through a series of text-based and voice response questions that are configured to each customer’s unique requirements. Interviews conducted through InterviewIQ can be designed to test the applicant’s customer service aptitude, critical thinking, math skills, grammar proficiency and communication skills. As a web-based application, InterviewIQ allows applicants to complete their interviews when it is convenient for them and stores their responses for a recruiter or hiring manager to evaluate later. This effectively expands the reach and effectiveness of a company’s recruiting team. InterviewIQ is provided on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis which means customers can be using the application and interviewing candidates within hours.

“Customer service organizations that are looking to improve hiring decisions, reduce recruiting costs, and increase talent performance may want to consider HireIQ’s Hiring Optimization Suite, including InterviewIQ,” said TEC Research Analyst Sherry Fox. “The TEC certification seal is a valuable indicator for organizations that rely on the integrity of our research services for assistance with their software selection projects. Organizations looking for a solution can be confident that they’re comparing the product on an ‘apples to apples’ basis with other competing offerings.”
