Jobvite Hire Transforms Applicant Tracking Systems with New Update

The Innovator of Social Recruiting Sets New Standards For Human Resource Software

BURLINGAME, Calif., September 25, 2012 – Jobvite, the leading recruitment platform for the social web, today launched a new version of Jobvite Hire to provide the industry’s most powerful, innovative recruiting and hiring solution. Featuring a revolutionary new consumer-oriented design that fundamentally improves the user experience, Jobvite Hire works seamlessly across multiple devices and offers a suite of innovative new features for strategic recruiting. Jobvite Hire is the most complete and contemporary applicant tracking system (ATS) in the industry.

The new Jobvite Hire solution for the first time brings consumer-style interaction to HR technology with an intuitive, touch-friendly, comprehensive ATS platform that works the way recruiters do. Jobvite brings recruiting and hiring data to life in a dynamic, visual user interface that provides a more enjoyable, and more efficient, experience for employers and candidates. While recruiters and job seekers have grown accustomed to confusing user interfaces and disjointed systems, Jobvite Hire sets a new standard for streamlined, positive recruiting interactions. It’s a revolution from the outdated, flat ATS solutions clogging the market.

“Many other vendors still offer antiquated recruiting systems created in the 80’s and 90’s with hacked on features to try and stay current. That’s not innovation, and that doesn’t meet the critical needs of today’s recruiters,” said Dan Finnigan, President & CEO, Jobvite. “The new Jobvite Hire is so intuitive, so powerful and so focused on exceptional experiences it revolutionizes the way employers and job seekers interact. Our design sets an unparalleled industry standard for creating new business solutions that operate and feel like consumer-facing apps.”

Jobvite Hire’s dynamic scheduling assistant enables recruiters to plan a candidate’s entire on-site interview schedule within a single easy-to-use platform. Jobvite Hire integrates with Outlook and Google calendars to schedule interviews with drag and drop simplicity. The candidate activity feed automatically tracks every action for each applicant, and provides a consumer-friendly presentation to recruiters and hiring managers for easy analysis and action. Jobvite Hire’s intuitive interface makes it easy for new users to get started, and its powerful feature set allows for strategic advanced recruiting efforts.

All the data within Jobvite Hire is dynamic, highly detailed and available with just one click.  Because recruiters look at far more information than just a resume, in the past they’ve been forced to leave the ATS and have many windows open at once to access the additional resources they use to evaluate a candidate. Now recruiters can find everything they need within Jobvite’s application and configure their applicant tracking workflows and forms to fit their company’s unique business processes. Jobvite Hire’s new requisitions page provides a constantly updated source of information and actions, making it easier than ever to manage job openings and track applications. Real-time analytics, automated tracking of referrals and candidates, personalized dashboards and custom reports help recruiters make informed decisions quickly.

“Jobvite Hire’s new cutting-edge solution is easy to use and extremely effective,” says Joe Divelbiss, Vice President of HR, Trustwave. “Perhaps the most unique factor of the new interface, and one I find most useful already, is the multi-screen access to a variety of programs simultaneously. I can now access LinkedIn to scan a candidate’s information, view a resume with Acrobat, and maneuver through Jobvite Hire without ever having to open these applications. This new interface catapults Jobvite’s customers to a new level of recruiting that’s a major advantage in today’s competitive hiring market.”

Other ATS solutions have been retrofitted for mobile use, resulting in unwieldy, frustrating experiences for the user. Jobvite built the new Jobvite Hire specifically with touch-screen capabilities in mind, so it works just as well on a tablet as it does a laptop or PC for recruiting anywhere, anytime. Jobvite Hire also focuses on candidate relationship management with a system that’s simple and easy for applicants and maintains the employer’s brand throughout the hiring experience. Job seekers can submit their information via LinkedIn, Facebook or by uploading a resume. They also receive real-time updates on the status of their applications.

“Faced with an ongoing war for talent, forward-thinking companies are working to improve the quality of their hires, reduce costs and enhance recruiter productivity,” said Katherine Jones, Director and Principal Analyst, HCM Technology, Bersin & Associates. “Companies that want to stay competitive need to recruit continuously. Innovations in technology – especially the rise of mobile and social – can give hiring managers a competitive advantage.”

The new Jobvite Hire solution is available now. More information and a free trial can be found on the product page. Attendees at the HR Technology Conference Oct. 8 – 10 in Chicago can see a live demo at Jobvite’s booth #649.
