Intelius and Taleo Collaborate to Provide Integrated Applicant Tracking & Screening Services for Small & Midsized Businesses

Intelius Celebrates Partnership With the Worldwide Industry Leader in On-Demand Talent Management Solutions

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - July 2, 2008) - Intelius Inc., a company that empowers businesses and consumers with information for intelligent decisions, today announced it has contracted with Taleo to provide an on-demand, pre-integrated employment screening service tailored for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs).

"As the leader in on-demand applicant tracking, we are continually seeking partnerships that will streamline the recruit-to-hire process for our customers," said Jason Blessing, Group Vice President for Taleo's SMB business unit. "We chose Intelius because of their significant technology expertise and their track record of delivering highly flexible and comprehensive employment screening solutions."

The relationship strengthens Taleo's current offering by providing the first pre-integrated pre-employment screening solution for the Taleo Business Edition product line. The integrated service enables Taleo Business Edition users to submit and manage Intelius background check requests from within the user interface, eliminating the need to re-enter candidate data through a separate system.

"Through this relationship, we introduced a seamlessly integrated recruitment solution previously available only to the largest businesses," said Todd Owens, general manager of screening services at Intelius. "Over half of GDP and two-thirds of employment is driven by small and medium sized businesses. I am excited to announce the integration of Intelius' on-demand, software-enabled employment screening services with Taleo's Business Edition recruiting solution. This collaboration between two best-of breed technology companies will bring industry-leading consistency and efficiency to Human Resource organizations of all sizes."

Intelius and Taleo will co-host a webcast titled "Sew Up Your Hiring Process" on Wednesday, July 9 at 9:00 a.m. PDT / Noon EDT. Invitations can be obtained by contacting the Intelius Sales Team at 1-877-974-1500. Organizations that register for this webcast will receive a 30 day free trial of Taleo Business Edition, along with 5 free Intelius pre-employment background checks.
