Pointwing Recruiting Software Adds Boolean Search Capability to Aid “Deep Search” for Candidates and Employees

Share Article

Boolean search capability offers recruiters and staffing coordinators the ability to perform full text searches of all documents or records within VCG’s Pointwing recruiting software.

Pointwing recruiting software - full text Boolean search function delivers results with scoring and keyword highlighting.

Boolean searches are a welcome addition to Pointwing for experienced recruiters as it gives them the power to go deep into any document in Pointwing to find the right match for the position they are filling.

VCG’s latest enhancement to their Pointwing recruiting software is designed to help recruiters and staffing coordinators who understand Boolean text search methodology to perform “deep search” queries within Pointwing to find the best match quickly and easily from among all document types.

Pointwing now offers five ways to search. The type of search they choose to use may be based on the specific needs and search skill level of the recruiter. In addition to Boolean searches, users may choose to perform quick lookups, create an advanced search from scratch, access a prompted search, or a Smart Match semantic search. They may then use filters to drill further into their search results. This gives the recruiter the option to perform the type of searches they are most familiar with to get the fastest and most accurate results.

Pointwing’s Boolean search strings can be created to perform “deep searches” to extract desired information and may be used alone or in conjunction with the search of other fields. Users can perform a Boolean search by simply typing in the search string which identifies the criteria they wish to match. These searches can be done from scratch or prompted and can be performed from quick lookup as well. Search results, with the matching keywords highlighted, will return a score based on how closely the result item matches the criteria.

Steve Taylor, President and CEO of VCG, said “Boolean searches are a welcome addition to Pointwing for experienced recruiters as it gives them the power to go deep into any document in Pointwing to find the right match for the position they are filling.”
