Jobvite Unveils New Technology for Real-Time Recruiting Intelligence

The New Recruiting Dashboard Delivers Powerful Ammunition in the Targeted War for Talent

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Jobvite (, creator of next-generation recruitment solutions, today unveiled the most sophisticated new technology for providing any company real-time recruiting data for optimizing the sourcing and hiring of talent. An intuitive, personalized dashboard built into the Jobvite recruiting platform now integrates all the relevant data from any candidate source, enabling companies to eliminate wasted resources and focus on the recruiting efforts that work. This real-time recruiting intelligence is available with either Jobvite's sourcing or applicant tracking products, making it easy, practical and affordable for any company.

The open, social web vastly expands the potential sources of prospective employees for companies. But companies suffer from data gaps -- incomplete and inaccurate information about the applicant sources and which sources produce the best talent for their jobs. These gaps make it harder than ever to tell what recruiting efforts are working. Prohibitively expensive, time-consuming custom data integration projects have failed to produce a practical solution for growing companies.

Jobvite technology invisibly and effortlessly embeds tracking in every way job information is shared online -- job ads, social sharing, referrals, and prospect communication. Because candidate sources are tracked from application through screening, interview and hire, the Jobvite recruiting dashboard gives companies complete, accurate data they can utilize to target the right talent, focus on quality sources and reduce spending waste. Benchmarking data in the dashboard helps employers understand how their metrics compare to peer companies and improve performance. The Jobvite recruiting dashboard provides an intuitive overview of complex information scaled to the needs of large enterprises, along with an actionable view of the data that matters to each individual.

"Even in this economy, a targeted war for top talent is still being waged," said Dan Finnigan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jobvite. "And in this environment, companies have no time or money to waste. This new technology provides complete, accurate and practical data in real-time, so they can make informed sourcing decisions to target hard-to-find talent and focus their recruiting resources."

Recruiting intelligence in Jobvite Source and Jobvite Hire provides:

  • Source Effectiveness: Relevant metrics on source performance throughout the candidate pipeline -- traffic, referrals, applications, interviews, etc.
  • Complete Metrics: Consolidates performance by all candidate sources used by companies for filling open jobs.
  • Social Recruiting Performance: Tracks results of job information sharing in and across social networks.
  • Career Site Benchmarking: Reports career site and microsite traffic data and provides benchmark.
  • Highest Data Accuracy: Accurate intelligence derived from tracking every way job information is shared on the open, social web.
  • Personalized Recruiting Dashboard: Each user views relevant information specific to their needs.
  • Integration: Integration with human capital management, applicant tracking and recruiting software products provides data continuity and integrity -- and one place to see results of all recruiting efforts.

"We're excited about the innovative approach Jobvite is taking to build recruiting intelligence into its products and in our organization," said Daniel Morris, Director of HR & Staffing, Trulia. "It's the first time I've seen an intuitive, practical dashboard that distills complex information into simple charts and metrics so anyone in our organization can use it to access real-time performance data on the jobs that matter to them."

Recruiting intelligence and personalized dashboards are built into Jobvite Hire and Jobvite Source. Jobvite Hire is the complete recruiting and applicant tracking application used by companies to manage the entire business process of hiring and power word of mouth job marketing in social networks. Jobvite Source is the social sourcing and candidate relationship management application used by companies to find talent through employee referrals, social networks and open web search.

Jobvite will be exhibiting at booth #728 and will demonstrate Jobvite Source and the new recruiting intelligence during the "Awesome New Technologies for HR" general session at the HR Technology Conference & Expo in Chicago, September 29 - October 1.
