MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AllyO, the technology company renowned for its end-to-end AI recruiting solution, announced a new partnership with iCIMS, the leading best-in-class talent acquisition solutions provider, to optimize recruiting processes, and improve hiring outcomes.
The new platform-to-platform integration between AllyO and the iCIMS Applicant Tracking System (ATS) enables employers to move candidates from sourcing to screening seamlessly, improves recruiters’ productivity, and reinforces positive candidate experiences.
Here’s how it works:
- First, AllyO uses job requirements from iCIMS’ talent-acquisition platform to engage candidates through career fairs, employee referrals, job ads, social media, talent pools, and text and web messaging.
- Next, AllyO converses with candidates and adds their information into iCIMS’ applicant-tracking system virtually in real time.
- Then, using intelligent screening, AllyO qualifies the candidates, nearly eliminating drop-off and increasing the number of applicants for interview.
- Finally, AllyO supports interview scheduling and candidate selection, and reports on applicant interaction and capture rates to improve hiring decisions.
Employers can now use AllyO with iCIMS, which automates recruiting workflow needs, saving the time, IT resources and budget that would have been required to build and maintain the customized linkage between the two solutions.
“Employers are in an incredibly tight and competitive labor market, so they need to work quickly while still making quality hires,” said Susan Vitale, chief marketing officer at iCIMS. “Our partnership with AllyO provides the powerful combination of speed and quality through automated, AI-powered sourcing and screening, backed with data to inform future decisions.”
Nick Possley, Data Products and Engineering Lead for AllyO, shared, “We’re pleased to provide our joint customers a delightful, end-to-end recruiting experience through a seamless, bi-directional integration across the entire recruiting workflow. This partnership will enable iCIMS customers to expand the scale of candidate engagement. Rather than filling out an application and waiting until someone responds, AllyO jumps in to engage candidates instantly, saving recruiters time and improving the candidate experience.”
The partnership includes a featured AllyO profile in the iCIMS marketplace, the industry-leading online community of more-than 230 applications, service providers and supporting resources where employers can shop and engage vendors that best fit their unique talent-acquisition needs.
