University of Maryland University College Selects iCIMS' Talent Platform to Automate Worldwide Faculty Recruitment ProgramWorld Leader in Online Education to Implement Industry's #1 Ranked Applicant Tracking Solution
May 25, 2005 Hazlet, NJ - iCIMS, a leading provider of web-based Hiring Management Solutions, announced today that University of Maryland University College (UMUC) has selected iCIMS to streamline the University's growing Worldwide Faculty Recruitment program. Under the terms of the agreement, iCIMS will be implemented across the University and will manage the UMUC worldwide faculty recruitment initiative.
UMUC, the largest public university in the United States offering online programs and one of the fastest growing universities nationwide, has, since its inception in 1947, been highly regarded for being on the forefront of providing education for nontraditional students and working adults. It is a large and diverse university, currently serving more than 90,000 students worldwide in both traditional classrooms and online.
To support its phenomenal expected enrollment growth, UMUC has selected iCIMS' Applicant Tracking Solution to improve the sourcing, review, and hiring of faculty members across the globe. iCIMS will also allow UMUC to more effectively leverage both external and internal employment advertising tools to increase the exposure of job opportunities at the University to a broader target audience.
"As a university that offers more than 500 online courses, we recognize the value of web-based offerings," says Iris Harvey, UMUC's Director of Worldwide Faculty Recruitment. "Our rapidly growing student enrollments increased our demand for faculty, a recruiting need we knew could be handled more efficiently through the installation of a web-based Applicant Tracking and Candidate Management System. After taking a careful survey of the technologies available to organizations like UMUC, it was clear that the flexibility of the iCIMS' Talent Platform, as well as inherent ease-of-use of the application and interoperability with other HR management tools, would best suit the University's goal to make UMUC faculty recruitment a more effective and strategic business function throughout the recruiting lifecycle."
iCIMS' suite of Hiring Management Solutions are currently in use by more than 250 organizations worldwide and have been recognized as the Industry's #1 applicant tracking offerings in each of the past two years. While iCIMS has provided recruitment technologies to departments within colleges and universities in the past, UMUC will be the first university to leverage the iCIMS' Talent Platform across all academic departments.
"iCIMS looks forward to continuing our work with UMUC and is eager to take our place within the foundation of University of Maryland University College's strategic recruitment vision," says Adam Feigenbaum, Director of Marketing & Sales with iCIMS. "iCIMS provides organizations the tools they need to streamline their hiring efforts and reduce their bottom-line, helping them realize a significant return-on-investment from day one. UMUC has presented iCIMS with a very clear path to follow for their recruitment management program and we are excited to play a leading role in making that vision a reality for the University."
