Jobscience Mobile Delivers Talent Relationship Management -- Anywhere

Innovative Mobile Force.com App Replaces Need for Paper Resumes

Dreamforce 2011, the Cloud Computing Event of the Year, Will Showcase How Businesses Can Tap Into the Power of Social, Mobile and Open Technologies to Become Social Enterprises

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference - Jobscience, a leading Talent Relationship Management provider on Force.com, today announced Jobscience Mobile, the industry's first mobile Talent Management app leveraging Force.com, salesforce.com's social enterprise platform for employee apps. The first release of Jobscience Mobile extends the efficiency, personalization and compliance benefits of sourcing prospective employees to networking events, campus visits, and informal recruiting interactions in the field.

The announcement was made today at Dreamforce 2011, the cloud computing event of the year. Jobscience will be in booth #315 in the Dreamforce Expo.

"Paper resumes are a thing of the past -- top talent job seekers today expect companies to find and interact with them online," said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. "With Jobscience Mobile, job seekers can stop bringing printed, one-size-fits-all resumes to networking events and campus recruiting visits. Recruiters can start every application process out digitally -- eliminating time-consuming scanning and data entry processes."

Recruiters can use Jobscience Mobile from a smartphone (Android, BlackBerry and iPhone) or Internet tablet (Android tablet, iPad) to kick off the job application process by inviting just-met candidates to reply with their resume. Job seekers can personalize their resume and job application. Additionally, this communication thread helps recruiters track the quality of sourcing events in the field.

Resumes submitted to Jobscience Mobile are parsed into the Jobscience TalentCloud application, which leverages the Salesforce CRM best practices to enable companies to gain, retain and grow employees through the full TRM lifecycle for talent optimization. Hiring managers can also use Jobscience Mobile to quickly provide feedback on applicants after interviews -- no matter where the interview occurs.

HR professionals can use Jobscience Mobile to speed the on-boarding process by utilizing smartphone and internet tablet cameras to take photos of passports and driver's licenses -- required for citizenship verification on an employee's first day.

"Customers coming to Dreamforce will have the chance to see some truly innovative approaches that partners like Jobscience have taken in leveraging the capabilities of the Force.com platform," said Ron Huddleston, vice president, ISV Alliances, salesforce.com. "Apps like Jobscience Mobile continue to push the social, open, mobile and trusted capabilities customers expect from the salesforce.com ecosystem."
