Peoplefluent Delivers Latest Version of Widely Deployed Recruiting Management System

New Look and Feel Advances User Experience; Enhancements Improve Workflows and Add Platform-Agnostic Framework for Mobile Applications

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Peoplefluent™, offering a unique combination of best-of-breed mobile and SaaS suite solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today unveiled details of Version 5.0 of its Recruitment Management System (RMS). With this version, the single sign-on user interface to Peoplefluent's global RMS has been updated to align with the UI of its award-winning talent management system. This significant user interface change will also be reflected in the company's Vendor Management System (VMS) offering later this year.

Intelligently driving decisions in an actionable manner, RMS 5.0 eliminates the "hunt and search" approach to finding important information that is a challenge for other recruiting systems, by placing data and analysis at the forefront of the solution. Proactively harnessing the power of corporate data is part of Peoplefluent's vision, exemplified with their launch of the Decision Views platform in 2009 and validated by the company's 2011 acquisition of Aquire, a global leader in workforce planning and analytics solutions.

In response to the increase of the number of enterprise smartphone and tablet app users -- forecast to be as high as 830 million by 2016 according to ABI Research -- Release 5.0 has a platform-agnostic framework that better positions the application to take advantage of mobile devices such as the iPad (see Peoplefluent's Fluency on the Move mobile applications launched earlier this month). This change also increases the number of browsers supported by RMS such as Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

"As more organizations seek to enable their workforces with applications that traverse a wide range of devices -- desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets -- it's crucial that we be platform-agnostic and deliver the industry's leading user interface. Our clients are telling us that having relevant data presented to them in an intuitive, easy-to-navigate manner enables them to gain efficiencies and make better business decisions more quickly. Peoplefluent is committed to listening closely to our customers and turning their requirements into reality," said Tom Tisdale, SVP of Sales for Peoplefluent.

Recognizing how busy HR professionals and corporate recruiters interact with applications, colleagues and candidates, Version 5.0 of RMS incorporates a number of significant Recruiting Portal user interface updates that add value without changing the respective task such as:

  • Workflow improvements that increase hiring workflow navigation and visibility
  • Dashboards using drag-and-drop widgets that provide easy access
  • A redesigned contemporary user interface featuring interactive icons and intuitive navigation

To lend further support, substantive application changes include the ability to view full lists of candidates and improved candidate search functionality; visual indicators highlighting where candidates are in the workflow; "export on-the-fly" capability; and email spell check and calendar tools. RMS 5.0 adds to the self-service administration capabilities of career site management, putting greater control in the hands of customers. For example, customers may choose to deployment options that let candidates complete a full job application on their mobile devices. With RMS 5.0, organizations can readily edit the text at their career sites, ensuring convenience, cost savings and the flexibility needed to support employment branding initiatives.

Version 5.0 of Peoplefluent's RMS is available now.
