iCIMS Wins THINKstrategies’ Best of SaaS Showplace Award

THINKstrategies announced today that iCIMS has been named the winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards. This program is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.  

The BoSS Awards are part of an ongoing program in THINKstrategies’ new Cloud Computing Showplace and recognize SaaS companies producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.

The iCIMS Talent Platform provides an easy-to-use, web-based talent acquisition solution that allows organizations to manage everything from sourcing, to recruitment, to onboarding all within one streamlined application. Companies that implement iCIMS HR software can significantly reduce the time-to-hire and cost-per-hire of new employees. Users are able to centralize, store, and track applicant profiles, jobs, and workflows, dramatically streamlining HR operations. The iCIMS Platform is also highly configurable and flexible to meet the specific needs of companies of all sizes across any industry. 

An example of the measurable business benefits which can be derived from iCIMS’ Talent Platform is Peoples Natural Gas, a division of Dominion Resources in Virginia. As a utility provider, the company typically saw high turnover and needed to find a way to engage new employees sooner in order to accelerate the hiring process and extend the length of tenure. Based on iCIMS’ intuitive design, simple-to-use yet robust reporting features, compliance capabilities, and superior customer service, Peoples Natural Gas was able to create a more efficient hiring process and keep up with rapid organizational growth. The company hired over 200 people within the first few months of implementation, and the time-to-hire new employees dropped from an average of over 65 days to around 24 days, a decrease of 63%. Further, the iCIMS Talent Platform has enabled Peoples Natural Gas to store all resumes in a centralized database in order to build a talent pipeline for current and future needs.

Based on this customer success story, iCIMS has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner.

“We are pleased to be recognized by THINKstrategies and the Cloud Showplace with the BoSS Award,” said Colin Day, Chief Executive Officer, iCIMS. “At iCIMS we pride ourselves on delivering best-of-breed, 2.0 talent acquisition solutions that deliver business benefits quickly and effectively; this acknowledgment highlights our efforts. We look forward to continuing to provide clients with innovative social- and mobile-enabled solutions that help them stay ahead of their competition in the pursuit of top talent.”

“Reducing the cost of operations is always useful during tough economic times, but improving hiring processes at the same time is a real plus,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace, which is now a part of the new Cloud Computing Showplace, and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace. “iCIMS’s Cloud-based Talent Platform enables users to accelerate and increase the effectiveness of their staffing processes.”
