Interstates Group Deploys Trovix Recruit to Streamline Enterprise Wide Recruiting Efforts

Turnkey Electrical Systems Provider Enlists Industry-Leading Applicant Tracking System for Collaborative Recruiting and Candidate Relationship Management

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - Trovix, Inc. announced that Interstates has deployed Trovix Recruit™ applicant tracking system (ATS) to streamline its recruiting efforts. Interstates is a group of independent operating companies that provide turnkey electrical systems for industrial and hazardous facilities. Interstates shares a central recruiting function across all six of its operating units. With Trovix Recruit, Interstates can share information and candidates across its companies more easily, and ensure that candidates have a positive experience from any or all of the operating units they apply to.

"In an industry as specialized as ours, the most important thing an organization can do is to identify the best and most skilled professionals and match them with the jobs that are right for them," said Theresa Nordstrom, HR Director, Interstates. "Trovix Recruit has certainly helped our hiring managers to align their efforts and become more actively engaged in the recruiting process. In doing so, we are able to assemble an elite pool of talent from which to select our new hires, ultimately ensuring that we are placing the most skilled person available in the ideal position for them."

Interstates chose Trovix Recruit after carefully evaluating several competitive solutions, ultimately selecting the Trovix system because of its ability to streamline hiring operations within and across its separate companies. By harnessing the application's extensive recruiting workflow and candidate search capabilities, the group has developed a pipeline of qualified candidates for positions, even when specific openings are not available. As qualified professionals apply for jobs at Interstates, recruiters can place them in a pool of talent to be drawn upon at any time to fill positions quickly and efficiently. This subsequently increases recruiting productivity by decreasing time-to-fill and advertising expenses.

"For a group of companies as broadly distributed and far-reaching as Interstates, it's absolutely essential that they are able to evaluate qualified candidates for their entire operation as quickly and cost-effectively as possible," said Jeff Benrey, CEO, Trovix, Inc. "We designed Trovix Recruit for just this purpose -- so that HR managers at organizations can open the lines of communication with one another and ensure that their hiring efforts are always working towards the common goal of finding the best people to fill the best jobs."

Trovix Recruit combines Trovix's Intelligent Search Technology with a full-featured Applicant Tracking System to help organizations to solve the most important task in corporate staffing: ensuring that recruiting efforts are always focused on finding the best candidate for the job. The ATS manages the entire selection process from opening requisitions and posting jobs to extending offers and generating reports. Designed with input from dozens of human resource professionals, staffing managers and recruiters, Trovix Recruit is easy to use, fast and delivers unparalleled quality search results. The application was named Top HR Product of the Year by Human Resource Executive magazine in 2006.

In addition to the evaluation of qualified professionals, Interstates has been able to leverage Trovix Recruit to improve its campus recruiting efforts. Student records in the system include school, graduation date and other information that can prove vital to managers seeking to extend their recruiting efforts to colleges and universities. Targeted communications are generated based on where a student is enrolled and their expected job search timeline, so that HR departments are able to pinpoint candidates at exactly the time when they become available for recruitment. In using Trovix Recruit, Interstates is able to keep active, personalized relationships with large numbers of students to ensure that the group is top-of-mind when it comes time to search for their first job.
