MATAWAN, NJ--(Marketwired - December 08, 2016) - iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions, announces achievement of additional milestones against its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) framework, UNIFi. The platform enables developers to integrate third-party applications with the iCIMS Talent Acquisition Platform, build new applications that work with iCIMS' recruiting software, and offer the products to iCIMS' customers via an online marketplace.
"According to a recent report on cloud-based apps, the average business uses 48 applications for HR. Unfortunately, 97 percent of them are not well-integrated, leading to decreased productivity in working with disparate systems," said Michael Wilczak, iCIMS SVP of strategy and corporate development for iCIMS. "For customers who value centralization of their hiring tools, UNIFi is able to deliver one experience, one view, and countless possibilities for their talent acquisition needs. By making it easy to shop for, integrate and build recruiting tools, customers can enjoy one streamlined user experience from within the iCIMS Talent Acquisition Platform."
The first phase of the launch in June of 2016 included three key elements that provide developers with the tools to build and integrate applications that work with iCIMS and enable customers to buy third-party products that streamline their recruiting applications into existing workflows, bringing data and analytics right into a single platform.
Since its launch, iCIMS has received a great response from both customers and third-party partners within the iCIMS Marketplace. Currently, the marketplace promotes 139 products from more than 20 categories and is the largest partner ecosystem and marketplace of recruiting-focused solutions. Newly implemented connectors across job distribution, assessments, background screening and tax credits are recent additions within the marketplace.
Sterling Talent Solutions, one of the world's largest and most successful background screening and HR solutions companies, joined the iCIMS Marketplace in July of 2016.
"We have always viewed iCIMS as a catalyst for innovation within the talent acquisition technology space and the introduction of UNIFi solidifies them as a category leader. Through this PaaS model, customers can easily evaluate and select the best technologies to support their unique hiring needs," said Julia Mair, chief marketing officer at Sterling Talent Solutions. "Offering one system of record for all hiring tools and data allows business to measure the impact of their HR systems and more efficiently manage their hiring practices. We're pleased to see iCIMS taking this on and believe this will continue to strengthen our partnership."
