Technology leader progresses toward becoming “platform-of-record” for talent acquisition
MATAWAN, N.J. [September 21st, 2017] – iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions, announces advancements within its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) framework including a new developer site and forum, popularity functionality in the iCIMS Marketplace and an enhanced integration solution for high-volume hiring.
UNIFi, iCIMS’ answer to the demand for a centralized talent acquisition platform-of-record, enables developers to integrate third-party applications with the iCIMS platform, build new applications that work with its recruiting software, and offers more than 175 related solutions to customers via the industry’s largest talent acquisition Marketplace.
“It has become increasingly clear that strong recruitment is a critical part of a business’ success,” said Mike Wilczak, senior vice president of corporate development at iCIMS. “To address the evolving complexity in the talent acquisition space, iCIMS is focused on leading the development of a centralized recruiting platform with next-generation integration technology, ensuring robust and seamless integrations between the iCIMS Talent Platform ‘hub,’ other supporting talent acquisition solutions, and core HR ecosystems such as HCM and ERP solutions.”
To support its growing enterprise customer base with complex, global and high-volume hiring needs, iCIMS has made several strategic investments in UNIFi. Now available to all customers, iCIMS’ Streaming Connector technology utilizes streaming API with REST API to provide bidirectional real-time data transfers. This enhancement was built to efficiently support large-volume integrations to Human Capital Management (HCM) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technologies that are used in concert with the iCIMS platform. iCIMS leads the recruitment technology industry by becoming the first provider to offer streaming API technology within its platform.
iCIMS has further matured the UNIFi offering by making other notable enhancements to its Marketplace and developer resources. To inform customers’ buying decisions, the iCIMS Marketplace now includes a popularity feature among partners in the background screening and assessment categories. Additionally, a new online forum for the developer community was launched to allow third-party and in-house customer developers to exchange best practices and collaborate while building apps that easily integrate with the iCIMS Talent Platform.
“We’re proud to be a top partner in the iCIMS ecosystem and to be a part of its growth strategy,” said John Nutile, director of integrations for Employment Background Investigations (EBI), an iCIMS partner. “We continue to listen to our joint customers’ needs and look for opportunities to take advantage of iCIMS’ delivered functionality, particularly through the open API that iCIMS offers, which allows us to build to their standard integration which is stronger than industry norms. Working with the integrations team to vet ideas, get development support and ultimately deliver market-leading solutions allows us to drive customer satisfaction and retention.”
iCIMS PaaS and its industry-leading integration experience has received recognition among industry analysts and IT organizations alike. Aptitude Research Partners cited iCIMS’ “cutting-edge integration technologies such as Streaming API” and Brandon Hall Group awarded UNIFi a bronze in its “Best Advance in Unique Talent Acquisition Technology” category.
To accelerate the company’s PaaS roadmap delivery plans and further enhance its product user interface, iCIMS plans to increase headcount in its technology department by almost 25 percent by Q1 2018.
