Jobvite Partners With SuccessFactors Bringing Power of Social Recruiting to Business Execution Suite

Combined Offering Generates Fast Results for Companies Seeking to Engage and Hire High Quality Talent

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  Jobvite, creator of next-generation recruitment solutions, today announced a partnership with SuccessFactors, Inc. (NASDAQ: SFSF) to bring the social recruiting innovations of the award-winning Jobvite Source to the SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) Suite. This strategic partnership enables customers of both solutions to harness social sourcing and CRM for recruiting within their existing infrastructure and see results of all recruiting efforts in one place.

"Social networks are transforming how people work and look for work, making them increasingly important to the performance of corporate recruiting," said Dan Finnigan, CEO, Jobvite. "Combining the SuccessFactors Business Execution Suite with Jobvite Source enables customers to get fast results from social recruiting and build a pipeline of relevant talent for future hiring needs." 

"By partnering and integrating with the best in class CRM and social recruiting platform in the industry, we can offer our customers the competitive advantage of sourcing top talent as they build their teams with our Business Execution Suite," said Dmitri Krakovsky, vice president of global product management, SuccessFactors.

Jobvite Source is a social sourcing and candidate relationship management application used by companies to target talent through employee referrals, social networks and the Web:

  • Automated job publishing and matching in social networks increase high quality referral hires. 
  • Matching technology and Boolean search surfaces relevant passive candidates from resume and profile data on the open Web and in proprietary databases.   
  • A robust, intuitive recruiter CRM with live social profile feeds enables recruiting teams to share data, organize lead generation, and manage email and social network campaigns.
  • Metrics from all candidate sources are tracked and consolidated in one intuitive recruiting dashboard to help companies elevate results.

"No recruiting solution is now complete without a social sourcing solution to go with it," says Bill Kutik, technology editor, Human Resource Executive and HREOnline. "In a way, recruiting has become sourcing since everyone's resume is sort of just out there somewhere already. Jobvite is one of the leaders in social sourcing, and its product is a necessary and desirable component for SuccessFactors' growing recruiting application."

The partnership of Jobvite and SuccessFactors extends real innovation to the BizX Suite's vast network of more than 8 million users from 3000 companies of all sizes around the world.
