When it comes to employee recruitment, the need to source and choose the perfect candidate amongst thousands of applicants is paramount for every organization. Digging deep into the predominant paper-based nature of the recruiting process, Matteo Cocciardo, the Co- Founder and CEO of In-recruiting, observed that taking care of recruiting often meant losing a lot of time in repetitive activities, with low added value, no technical support and inadequate tools. “Consequently, recruiters have to sacrifice the most relevant part of their job: selecting the best candidate in the shortest period of time,” says Cocciardo. With the goal to offer an adept and efficient recruitment solution in the market that is intuitive and easy to set up, fast and flexible, and adaptable to the recruiter’s complex hiring requirements, Cocciardo laid the foundation of In-recruiting.
In-recruiting is a web-based Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to manage and streamline the entire recruiting process—from posting vacancies to candidate selection—all-in-one solution. The platform primarily automates the repetitive tasks such as screening résumés, scheduling interviews with candidates or sending communication emails on behalf of the recruiting companies. In-recruiting has invested heavily in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) that enables its ATS to identify the top candidates based on client’s stored profile information and digital résumés.
The solution recognizes keywords and content from each application, ranks every résumé for comparing the applicants and enabling the recruiters to streamline and immediately identify the most promising candidate from a vast data pool. The initial selection of candidates is followed by the clients in collaboration with their recruiters to verify the process’s accuracy in candidate selection and direct their focus only on the best candidates.
Additionally, the In-recruiting ATS allows clients to post job vacancies across global Job boards/portals and social networks through a multi-posting channel. “This helps clients in increasing their visibility and to track and find the right candidate for every job,” says Cocciardo. In-recruiting’s built-in conference system allows clients to conduct online meetings/interviews with the promising candidates, thereby resulting in cost and time savings. The solution also provides various performance reports and KPIs on recruitment activities to manage their recruiting process further. Considering the candidate journey, In-recruiting supports multiple languages and allows candidates to apply for job vacancies from any device, upload résumés through file hosting services such as Dropbox and Google Drive, and provides visual information on the client’s environment to enable a better understanding of their workplace. In addition, thanks to its expertise in complex database migrations for new clients that join its ATS, In-recruiting supports clients in the onboarding process and provides a knowledgebase where clients get access to video information and weekly online webinars on latest features and improvements in the technology, which can be leveraged to improve their internal processes.
Cocciardo highlights an instance when In-recruiting assisted ManpowerGroup—the third-largest staffing firm in the world—in high-volume hiring as an HR Official Premium Partner for Expo Milano 2015. To manage and identify the best candidates out of over 20,000 applicants per vacancy, ManpowerGroup chose In-recruiting for handling the whole technical aspect of their recruiting and hiring process. All applications previously submitted to the website of Expo Milano 2015 and ManpowerGroup were automatically fed into a unique new database so that candidates could apply to the new selection panel. In-recruiting further helped the client streamline the entire process by integrating a tailor-made ATS into a third-party solutions for conducting online assessments, payroll and training.
Scripting similar success stories, In-recruiting intends to leverage data analytics to manage the increasing number of applicants’ data and provide insights about the candidates to the hirers. With the ATS offering improving every quarter with new features and user interface, the company plans is to dominate the European recruiting software market and spread across the US and Asia.
