- Leading Provider of SaaS Talent Management Solutions Delivers Even More Post-Hire Functionality -
HAZLET, N.J. (February 3, 2009) iCIMS, a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, today announced the release of version 8.3 of the company's Talent Platform, the industry's premier end-to-end talent management solution designed with mid-market organizations in mind. The latest version of the web-based platform comes equipped with advanced post-hire capabilities, including front-facing onboarding and employee portals.
iCIMS specializes in solutions to attract, retain, and manage talent, giving users the ability to perform all HR tasks through a single application. iCIMS offers everything from applicant tracking capabilities to onboarding and off-boarding, performance management, succession planning, workforce planning and more, all developed and delivered via single source code. Typically, small and mid-sized organizations use the software to manage both their pre- and post-hire programs while large organizations use the user-friendly software to support their talent acquisition needs.
Increased interest in and client adoption of iCIMS' Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology has had a direct influence on the development of this latest release. With 8.3, users are able to track and manage candidate and employee data within the back-end technology as well as utilize front-facing self-service portals for onboarding and employee management. The onboarding portals allow individuals to complete new-hire forms (W-4s, I-9s, Direct Deposits), to schedule employee orientations, and provide internal notifications to key parties, among others. The employee portals enable clients to house key data such as performance reviews, professional development initiatives, referral programs, and more.
“Today's businesses are often forced to purchase separate solutions in order to address all of their talent management needs,” said iCIMS' president and CEO Colin Day. “iCIMS' 8.3 platform eliminates this issue by streamlining both pre- and post-hire needs in one system without requiring additional modules or databases. This is becoming more and more attractive for small and mid-sized organizations that don't have the resources or desire to purchase, implement, and manage multiple technologies.”
iCIMS' single, comprehensive platform is a cost-effective alternative to cumbersome modules and costly system integrations. As opposed to competing solutions, the Talent Platform allows users to take advantage of one flexible platform that offers a consistent interface, and eliminate the need to rely on pricey point solutions that need to be pieced together. With the Talent Platform, users are provided with greater cost efficiencies and overall value - ultimately supplying their organizations with a greater Return-on-Investment.
“This latest release fills a critical need in candidate and employee management that SMB organizations have been voicing in recent months,” said Day. “We have already seen many of our clients adopt these post-hire technologies - some of whom are using the platform as a full blown HRIS – and benefit from the cost savings associated with the single source platform.”
In addition to the comprehensive functionality offered within the platform, iCIMS also boasts one of the best customer service ratings in the industry, directly leading to a near-perfect customer retention rate. Industry-recognized by analysts, consultants and others as a prime solution for mid-market organizations because of the system's cost-effective configurations vs. customizations and unlimited training and support services, iCIMS' platform is used by more than 650 organizations, including Room and Board, the William J. Clinton Foundation, Fisher Investments, and Sony Music Entertainment.
