Peoplefluent Integrates With LinkedIn

Peoplefluent Delivers Customers Immediate Access to Talent Pool of Over 100 Million Candidates Worldwide; Increases Quality of Hire and Streamlines Recruiting Processes

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Peoplefluent, offering a unique combination of best-of-breed suite solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today announced it is working with LinkedIn to connect its customers with over 100 million potential applicants worldwide, further generating quality of hire and streamlining recruiting processes. Today's news, in conjunction with the "Fluency on the Move" mobile product line introduced by Peoplefluent earlier this month, underscores the Company's intuitive talent management strategy designed to drive engagement by creating innovative, immediate and interactive experiences through the communities, devices and methods naturally preferred and undertaken by the user.

"The individual is today's new system of record. In an emerging landscape, where shifting cultural and professional dynamics and rapidly evolving technology enablement have changed the relationship between employees and employers, LinkedIn has become the preeminent resource for individual Talent Profiles," said Charles S. Jones, Chairman and CEO of Peoplefluent. "Consistent with our overarching intuitive talent management strategy and recent product innovations, we are helping our customers find the talent they need by giving them the easy, engaging and immediate ability to meet potential candidates where they already are -- in their own powerful interactive communities."

Concur, as a global leader in integrated travel and expense management, is the first of several Peoplefluent customers to expand its existing Peoplefluent Recruiting Solution with the "Apply With LinkedIn" integration. The company will implement the "Apply with LinkedIn" functionality across all of its career sites and its corporate site, in a phased strategy over the next several months, beginning with TripIt, their leading mobile trip organizer.

"LinkedIn represents a highly qualified and professionally engaged pool of talent, and it's in Concur's best interest to make the application process as easy as possible," said Shelly Holt, Director of Global Staffing for Concur. "We are committed to reaching and identifying the highest quality candidates for our rapidly growing business units like TripIt, and to making every interaction with our business a simple and welcoming experience. We are delighted about the impact that this integration will have on our recruiting initiatives, beginning with TripIt."

Further expanding the functionality of its broad Recruiting Solution (see latest Peoplefluent product release announced July 25, 2011), Peoplefluent has developed key product integrations with LinkedIn's leading professional platform. With this effort, Peoplefluent is streamlining the application process for job seekers and broadening the candidate pool for companies worldwide.

Citrix, a leading provider of virtual computing solutions that help people work from anywhere on any device, strives to provide the company's hiring managers and candidates with simple, efficient tools, such as Peoplefluent's Talent Management suite. "As a long-term Peoplefluent customer, we're excited to enhance the recruiting and application experience with this innovative technology," said Rich Berger, Senior Director Citrix Global HRIS.

"This is a great tool for candidates to streamline their application experience with Citrix. We are strengthening our social media and bridging the gap between LinkedIn profiles and our application process," said Melissa Thompson, Director, Citrix Talent Acquisition. "We look forward to adding 'Apply With LinkedIn' to our Peoplefluent RMS implementation later this summer."

Peoplefluent will offer two "Apply With LinkedIn" plug-in integration options to its Recruiting Solution customers. The first option will, through a one-click apply process, populate relevant LinkedIn profile information into the Peoplefluent recruiting system. Designed to streamline the application process for people who maintain rich professional profiles on LinkedIn, this will serve to broaden our customers' applicant pool of high-quality candidates both actively and passively looking for new opportunities. The second option couples the convenient submission process of the first, while adding compliance and candidate screening alternatives for global enterprise customers. A one-click process will access a candidate's profile data and populate the information into existing application forms on the career site. This process further allows the candidate to provide supplemental application documents, complete assessment forms and provide any other data necessary that is not typically stored in a profile, but is required as part of the application process.
