Kenexa, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today launched its new technology platform, Kenexa 2x. Kenexa 2x provides a Unified Talent Record across the employment lifecycle linking Recruitment, Onboarding, Performance Management and Mobility on one technology platform. Kenexa 2x enables customers to improve productivity, increase cost savings, ensure compliance with corporate and legal mandates, and raise employee engagement.
Available now on Kenexa 2x are Kenexa 2x BrassRing, Kenexa 2x Recruit, Kenexa 2x Onboard and Kenexa 2x Mobile. In Q3 2010, Kenexa will add Kenexa 2x Perform to its current Performance Management solution. Kenexa 2x Perform will offer leading edge performance management and succession planning tools to drive organisational alignment and ensure top performers are motivated and engaged.
Recent Gartner research claims that in 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access devices worldwide. Kenexa 2x Mobile addresses this global trend by delivering the first talent management applications natively developed for iPhone and BlackBerry platforms. With Kenexa 2x Mobile, hiring managers and approvers can now leverage the full power of their smart phones to speed decision making and gain competitive advantage with zero training.
Research from the Kenexa Research Institute shows that organisations with formal onboarding processes can achieve increased revenue gains of up to 40%. Kenexa 2x Onboard offers an integrated solution to deliver on this promise. Kenexa 2x Onboard leverages cutting edge Web 2.0 technology to deliver a new hire portal and integrated workflow management that offers an improved employee experience while ensuring compliance with legal and corporate policies.
Kenexa 2x BrassRing and Kenexa 2x Recruit solutions feature highly interactive dashboards, integrated workflow management across recruitment, assessment and onboarding, and real-time reports that facilitate robust analysis across critical business processes. Customers who implement Kenexa 2x BrassRing or Kenexa 2x Recruit increase the efficiency of their recruitment processes, lower cost-per-hire, enhance the job seeker’s experience and reduce operating costs.
Derek Bluestone, vice president of product marketing at Kenexa, said: “Kenexa has a long-standing position as the human capital management’s industry leader. It was a natural progression of our R&D efforts to develop a platform that delivers a unified talent record, bringing together all of the details about a candidate or employee, regardless of where they are in the employee lifecycle or recruiting workflow. Our customers have given us very positive feedback about the potential that Kenexa 2x brings to their organisations. As Kenexa moves to the next phase of its growth, Kenexa 2x will be an integral part of that flight.”
Thomas Otter, Research Director at Gartner, said: “Unifying key recruiting, onboarding and employee performance management functionality with a single employee record is a natural progression in what is a relatively siloed market. Integration will become more important as HR looks to improve data quality and process consistency. Also expected to intensify is the need for mobile applications as HR professionals, employees, applicants and managers rely on mobile devices to conduct business.”
