Staffing and Recruitment Firms

Staffing and Recruitment firms have a unique set of challenges. It is hard enough to find and hire the right people for your own company, while the people you place at other companies is what really determines whether you thrive or dive. Being the first company to find the right person, at the right time, for the right job, is absolutely critical. And if you are like many other Staffing and Recruitment firms, you have to deal with a high turnover rate, so you need solutions that can get new staff up and running quickly with minimal training. Sovren offers an integrated line of recruitment intelligence solutions to help you meet those challenges.

Most Staffing and Recruitment firms buy their core applications from Software Vendors, many of whom are Sovren customers. These vendors all know that resume parsing, searching and matching are an important part of the placement process, because that set of functionality is demanded by every one of their customers. If you are a Staffing and Recruitment firm that has decided to maintain your own placement software, you need to provide the same set of functionality to your recruiters, sales people, and staffing specialists, as well as your customers who look to you to handle job postings, online applications, and self-service searching and matching. Sovren provides the sophisticated set of components that are used to quickly and accurately add this kind of functionality to your software.

We know how some developers think. “Heck, I can write something in a couple weeks that will parse contact information.” It actually is that simple for maybe 30-50% of documents in the real world. But 50% accuracy isn’t anywhere near acceptable, so the project stretches out. Months later you realize you’ve invested a lot more time and money than expected, and accuracy is still completely unacceptable to your end users. Each step forward takes another 6-12 months, with rapidly diminishing returns, and your users are clamoring for other data like Education and Work Experience. That’s not how you want to spend your valuable time. Enter Sovren. We have focused on the hard parts of resume processing for over 10 years, so that you can focus your time on system functionality that only you can provide.

Sovren is the only vendor that offers an end-to-end recruitment intelligence solution using products developed in-house and therefore completely designed, developed and optimized to work together synergistically:

  1. Sovren Document Converter: Allow your users to accept documents in practically any format. Convert documents into plain text or into rich formats like HTML and RTF so that your users can preview, share and redistribute documents without the original application.
  2. Sovren Resume/CV Parser: Parse resumes/CVs to construct a candidate profile that includes ALL of the 16 major types of resume data defined by the HR-XML Consortium. Output the results to an HR-XML Resume compliant XML document, with value-added extensions to help you summarize and classify candidates. If you want to skip XML, you can access all the data directly from runtime object properties.
  3. Sovren Job Order Parser: Parse job orders to construct a job order search profile for use by the Sovren Semantic Matching Engine.
  4. Sovren Semantic Matching Engine: Avoid time-consuming and complicated search forms, and give your users rapid and accurate search results with the click of a button. Quickly find the best matching candidates for a job, or find jobs for a candidate, or find jobs/candidates that are most similar to one that you have already identified. Use job orders, resumes, HR-XML parsed resumes, or freeform text as input to any of these matches. And give your users the power to tweak the search results by adjusting the weighting of 12 different categories of criteria.
  5. Sovren Pinpoint Searching Engine: Semantically match search profiles to candidate profiles. The Sovren Pinpoint Searching Engine can virtually eliminate 90+% of the false positive matches that are generated by traditional keyword search engines.
