-Consulting services company, THINKstrategies acknowledges the iCIMS Talent Platform -
MATAWAN, N.J. (July 27, 2012) – iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, announced today that the company has been named the winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards.
The BoSS Awards is operated by THINKstrategies, a strategic consulting services company that focuses on helping clients benefit from the technology industry’s shift from a product-centric to a services-driven business model. This award was created to promote the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service solutions providers and is part of the organization’s larger Cloud Computing Showplace Award Program. In assessing applicants, THINKstrategies examines customer success stories and the tangible business benefits, such as increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations, and greater profitability, of SaaS organizations.
iCIMS was named the winner of the BoSS Award based on the client story of Peoples Natural Gas, a division of Dominion Resources in Virginia, which highlights the corporate benefits afforded to the company through the use of the iCIMS Talent Platform. Prior to implementing the iCIMS Talent Platform, this customer was experiencing high turnover and needed to engage new employees sooner to accelerate the hiring process and lengthen tenure. With the adoption of iCIMS’ talent acquisition software, Peoples Natural Gas was able to create a more efficient hiring process and keep up with rapid organizational growth. The company hired more than 200 people within the first few months after implementation, and the time-to-hire dropped from an average of over 65 days to around 24 days, a 63% decrease.
“We are pleased to be recognized by THINKstrategies and the Cloud Showplace with the BoSS Award,” said Colin Day, Chief Executive Officer, iCIMS. “At iCIMS we pride ourselves on delivering best-of-breed, 2.0 talent acquisition solutions that deliver business benefits quickly and effectively; this acknowledgment highlights our efforts. We look forward to continuing to provide clients with innovative social- and mobile-enabled solutions that help them stay ahead of their competition in the pursuit of top talent,” concluded Day.
THINKstrategies’ evaluation of iCIMS highlighted the numerous measurable business benefits that can be derived from iCIMS’ offerings. Some of the key advantages of the Talent Platform include its ability to significantly reduce the time-to-hire and cost-per-hire of new employees, its highly configurable and flexible structure, and the capability to dramatically streamline HR operations.
“Reducing the cost of operations is always useful during tough economic times, but improving hiring processes at the same time is a real plus,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace, which is now a part of the new Cloud Computing Showplace, and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace. “iCIMS’s cloud-based Talent Platform enables users to accelerate and increase the effectiveness of their staffing processes,” Kaplan concluded.
