-Software-as-a-Service provider sees jump in mid and large-sized organizations migrating to iCIMS from competing systems-
HAZLET, N.J. (October 22, 2010) iCIMS, the second largest provider of talent acquisition solutions, announced today that it experienced a significant increase in mid-market and enterprise-level companies migrating to iCIMS from competing systems in the 3rd quarter of this year. Many were eager to move over to iCIMS’ talent management system, the Talent Platform, citing such key product differentiators as iCIMS’ speed and simplicity of the migration and implementation process. Some signed companies include Dewberry, Superior Energy Services and American General Financial.
With nearly half of Q3’s new customer roster including companies with 500-10,000 or 10,000+ employees, iCIMS has further proven itself as a talent management software leader. As these companies are categorized in different markets, they require varying needs from a talent management system, which the Talent Platform is capable of meeting. The Talent Platform’s flexibility and configurability make it possible to mirror any recruitment process regardless of company size or industry. Companies have lauded the Platform’s scalability, as this elasticity saves clients money in the long-term by removing the need to buy additional modules. With a wide array of functionality including candidate and employee management tools such as sourcing, recruiting, applicant tracking, onboarding, performance management, succession planning and training management, companies can streamline their entire talent lifecycle.
Additionally, the iCIMS software is very easy to migrate to from competing software, eliminating the challenge often associated with switching systems. That smoothness of migration and implementation has client systems up and running in no time. One HR Talent Manager from Trump Entertainment Resorts humorously commented, “I fell head over heels in love with my iCIMS’ Implementation Manager.” Trump was live in just 6 weeks largely due to the people-support iCIMS provides to power client migrations. iCIMS provides all clients with a dedicated Client Relationship Director, Implementation Manager, and 24 hour help desk, along with a myriad of educational tools from an interactive Customer Care Site to virtual/on-site trainings.
New clients can also rest assured that all data will be migrated seamlessly regardless of amount. In a recent article on ERE, Sodexo was faced with this very task: migrating their entire candidate database over from their previous ATS to iCIMS. According to the article, “Sodexo moved over many employee profiles, as well as information related to the interview process.” It was crucial they choose a system that could easily migrate all of their employee information without any loss of data. The migration and implementation process was completed successfully thanks to iCIMS’ unwavering and unlimited customer service that supports clients every step of the way, from their pre-implementation period through their go-live date.
iCIMS makes it easy for clients all over the world to leverage the Talent Platform. One of iCIMS’ newest mid-market clients, Carole De Mayo, Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Aptuit commented, “As our global presence in the pharmaceutical services industry continues to grow, Aptuit has chosen to partner with iCIMS for our talent management and e-recruitment purposes. We were thoroughly impressed with not only iCIMS’ metrics reporting and data management capabilities but also the functionality and integration of multi-portal and different language needs of a global organization such as Aptuit. iCIMS will be a strategic partner for Aptuit as we look to continue building our globally diverse talent resources.”
Due in large part to iCIMS’ strong presence in the mid and enterprise-level markets, iCIMS increased new customer acquisition by 30% over Q2 results, making Q3 the most successful quarter in 2010. “As reflected by last quarter’s sales, companies are looking for HR technology that works with them, and that is why they are turning to iCIMS,” said Chief Operating Officer, Adam Feigenbaum. “With other talent management systems, companies are forced to adapt their HR processes to fit the technology. iCIMS’ Talent Platform doesn’t work that way. The platform’s inherent ease-of-use, flexibility, support and scalability coupled with a simple migration process make it easy for companies to power their HR processes rather than overcomplicate them. I expect that Q4 will see many more mid and large size businesses making the switch to iCIMS.”
