Peopleclick Selects FAST Data Search to Help Clients
Oslo, Norway and Raleigh, North Carolina (ots/PRNewswire)
- Enterprise Search Solution Provides Peopleclick Clients Conceptual Search and Scalability as Demand for Qualified Candidates Increases
Peopleclick, Inc., the leading total workforce acquisition provider for global enterprises, today announced it will deploy Fast Search & Transfer's FAST Data Search(TM) to power the search capabilities of its Recruitment Management System (RMS). Fast Search & Transfer(TM) (FAST(TM)) (OSE: FAST) is the leading developer of enterprise search and real-time alerting technologies.
The categorization and drill-down features of FAST Data Search will enable users of Peopleclick's RMS to utilize conceptual search to expand and refine their search results for candidates by allowing them to request "more candidates like this" and "best fit candidates."
In addition, FAST Data Search will allow Peopleclick recruiting clients to:
- Simultaneously search unstructured data, such as resumes, candidate and interviewer notes and attachments, and structured data, such as education data and questionnaire answers;
- Search multiple candidate languages with multi-language criteria;
- Perform geographic proximity searches of metropolitan regions; and
- Retain ad hoc search criteria until the next query
"Our clients are adding nearly one million candidates per month through Peopleclick RMS, and they depend on us to provide a candidate and resume search tool that quickly delivers the most relevant results," says Kathleen V. Barton, senior vice president of marketing and product development, Peopleclick. "We chose FAST Data Search because it's the best out there with its powerful platform architecture, its support of 77 different languages, including full double-byte support, and its ability to scale as we continue to expand our business."
Peopleclick's RMS is a hosted, web-based solution that manages full-time employee staffing in an efficient, cost-effective, and process-driven way. From candidate identification and pre-screening to qualification and selection, Peopleclick RMS is tied to powerful reporting and analytics tools. RMS allows for complete control over full-time employee headcount while ensuring high-caliber talent acquisition and improved workforce acquisition decisions.
Based upon FAST's powerful Enterprise Search Platform technology (FAST ESP(TM)), FAST Data Search enables the aggregation of information from any structured and unstructured data source, including not only Peopleclick's own proprietary content, but also advertiser, third-party and web content. It provides organizations with a flexible and powerful relevancy framework that allows them to meet their business objectives by controlling the user experience through InPerspective(TM), FAST's rank tuning module, while consistently providing the user with superior search results. FAST Data Search also includes advanced navigation and drill down capabilities, allowing users to do multi-level sorting of their search results by a variety of parameters.
"FAST is continuing to see increasing demand for innovative enterprise search platform solutions that can scale data in multiple formats and languages in real-time to make business more efficient," said John M. Lervik, FAST's chief executive officer. "Peopleclick clients will benefit from increased speed and relevancy in their candidate and resume search results for a rapid time-to-hire of the most qualified candidates. Peopleclick's selection of FAST Data Search further expands our presence in the online recruitment market."
The selection of FAST Data Search demonstrates Peopleclick's continued commitment to globalization, product development and customer support. The new search capabilities will be available when Peopleclick launches RMS 4.3.4 in the first quarter of 2005.
