Kenexa, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, has released new functionality that enables its clients to access its recruiting solutions from mobile devices (such as an iPhone or BlackBerry) anywhere, anytime.
With Kenexa’s collaborative capabilities, corporate recruiters and hiring managers can use their mobile devices to contact job seekers and schedule interviews. Job candidates can apply for a job opening with just a few clicks on their mobile devices.
Upcoming hiring company-side features consist of mobile contact management, including the capability to review candidates and contact candidates with a click; the ability to advance candidates through the application workflow and provide increased visibility to candidates in real-time; approval of requisitions using mobile devices; and the means to view ‘unified talent records’ – for internal and external candidates – on the go. Upcoming candidate-side features include the ability to view available positions at a company’s career site; apply to jobs and submit cover letters with a click; and access other relevant candidate features from any location.
Rudy Karsan, chief executive officer at Kenexa, said: “Kenexa is accelerating the delivery of additional mobile capabilities to further revolutionise the job search and recruiting process. With growing market demand for anytime, anywhere solutions, it’s a natural progression of our product development to once again take the leadership position and provide increased mobile functionality to the market.”
For more than 10 years, Kenexa has delivered innovative, secure mobile technologies for its award-winning solution Kenexa Recruiter BrassRing, including its patented e-Link requisition approval solution, which enables hiring managers and recruiters to work together via mobile devices. Kenexa has also been lauded for its proven Mobile Recruiter offline functionality, which means users in global markets with unpredictable broadband access can work offline and synchronise with the application at a later time.
Kenexa’s new extended functionality in Kenexa Recruiter BrassRing will be available in early 2010 at no additional cost to existing users.
