Recruitment software provider Bond International Software has adopted technology from HP Autonomy to enhance its recruitment process system, Bond Adapt, a specialist portfolio of recruitment applications used by staffing firms to support their business processes.
The Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) understands the meaning of information in any format, such as text, video, audio or social media data. The ability to recognise patterns provides an advantage in the recruitment sector, where resumes are not consistently formatted.
Autonomy IDOL's ability to understand meaning in this way makes it possible to analyse the complete profile of a candidate, rather than try to match a series of keywords. Bond claims that this represents a first in the recruitment industry, and offers a significant technological leap forward over inadequate keyword matching techniques.
“With Bond Adapt, we help our customers go from hundreds of potential candidates to a tightly focused and relevant pool in just a few clicks,” said Daniel Richardson, chief technical officer, Bond International Software.
“Recruiters are highly skilled individuals, and that's not something you can replace – but what we can do is give them a tool that helps them work more efficiently. With IDOL, instead of 50 loosely related candidates to review, recruiters get the 15 most suitable and work from there,” he said.
