-Software-as-a-Service provider sees UK expansion in 2010 with trends expected to continue in 2011-
READING, UK - January 13, 2011: iCIMS, the second largest provider of talent acquisition and e-Recruitment solutions, reported significant gain in overall UK market growth, making it an even more competitive player in the e-Recruitment space. In the 2010 year-end summary, several areas saw outstanding improvement including UK sales, EMEA corporate development, and overall market recognition of iCIMS' candidate and employee management software, the iCIMS Talent Platform.
Facilitated by industry momentum, iCIMS ends the year exceeding expected 2010 results with a 40 percent year-over-year increase in new UK sales, adding prominent brands like Sony Music UK, International Baccalaureate, and Maxwell Drummond to its roster of 875 global clients. A large portion of these UK clients expressed direct satisfaction with the software's ability to drive lower hiring expenses, greater recruitment efficiency, and increased personnel quality. The Platform's global compatibility was another strong driver cited in UK adoption with easy-to-use functionality including multilingual career portals, country-specific applicant workflows, and automatic data collection.
Earlier in the year, iCIMS moved to support projected growth in the UK by tripling the size of its EMEA staff. In turn, this expansion augmented greater industry awareness of the Platform as seen with various recognitions such as winning the Sift Media Software Satisfaction Award for Enterprise Human Resources and Human Capital Management. Other acknowledgments include the internationally renowned Stevie Award for Customer Service Department of the Year and the Onrec Award for Best Technological Innovation.
These 2010 results speak as a precursor to anticipated growth in 2011. From further corporate development to improved product functionality, iCIMS expects to become an even more influential presence in the e-Recruitment and talent management industry in the UK. Along with these expansionary efforts, iCIMS will continue to focus on its commitment to excellent customer service and support.
“2010 marks another highly successful year in iCIMS' UK performance as sales numbers and industry recognition reached new heights,” commented President and CEO, Colin Day. “As the inherent value of e-Recruitment systems gains momentum within the UK market, the Talent Platform is winning out against competitors. UK HR professionals looking for these systems want something that is intuitive to use, and they are finding that with iCIMS' software. As we begin to implement our strategic UK and international growth initiatives, I look forward to seeing even greater success in 2011.
