CareerBuilder has long been known primarily for its namesake jobs-listing site, but on Wednesday the company launched a new recruitment platform that's aimed squarely at enterprise HR departments.

With components for job distribution, sourcing, workflow, candidate relationship management and data analytics, CareerBuilder1 is delivered as Software as a Service in the cloud and is designed to help companies manage the entire recruitment process.

Current application-tracking systems have not kept pace with shifts in the recruitment landscape toward mobile computing and functionality like CRM and analytics, said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation.

The result is that many organizations turn to outside tools, leading to a hodgepodge of different products being patched together for recruiting purposes.

"Most enterprises are not happy with their current system," Ferguson said.

A good analogy is where sales customer relationship management was years ago, before Salesforce made a backbone to tie all the disparate pieces together, he said.

"Recruitment doesn't really have that solution today," he added. "We aim to bring together that whole process for recruitment in one place."

Features in the new platform include the ability for candidates to apply for jobs using a mobile device and to receive notifications when new jobs open up, for instance.

Recruiters, meanwhile, can quickly post to more than 6,000 job boards worldwide as well as automating numerous manual tasks. Data and analytics tools are available to help companies evaluate their talent strategies and compare how well different recruitment sources are paying off.

Recruiters can buy the whole CareerBuilder1 pre-hire platform or purchase components a la carte to integrate with their existing systems. Enterprise platform pricing begins at $30,000 per year.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
