Introducing SmartSearch University – Helping recruiters hire faster, better, and smarter while making a difference in the lives of others.

Carlsbad, CA – November 23, 2021

With the recent release of Version 22, SmartSearch is excited to announce the launch of SmartSearch University, a one-stop-shop for clients to learn all things SmartSearch and help recruiters hire faster, better, and smarter while supporting those in need.

show more

 

“At SmartSearch, we are always looking for ways to help our clients get the most out of their investment. We saw SmartSearch University as an opportunity for our clients to have their subject matter experts (SME) trained and become SmartSearch experts, maximizing their investment.

 

SME’s bridge the gaps for their organization’s hiring needs to achieve greater recruiting and hiring efficiency,” said LJ Morris, President & CTO of SmartSearch.

 

A key added benefit of the university’s adoption by clients is that SmartSearch donates to selected charities on behalf of those who complete certifications. At the beginning of the month, SmartSearch chooses one charity to donate to for each completed certificate—the more completed certificates, the more significant the donation. SmartSearch compiled the list of charities they support from surveying SmartSearch clients, ensuring support of charities close to clients’ hearts.

 

Last month, SmartSearch client SME’s achieved 16-course certificates, with donations made to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital for each certificate earned. In November, these donations will go towards, The Hunger Project addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty, emphasizing rural development and self-reliance. It enables local women and men to eradicate persistent hunger in their communities and make them more resilient so community members can cope with famine or other emergencies as they arise.

 

“We see a lot of excitement from our clients with this program. It allows us to deepen our relationships with our clients by providing additional resources and training to learn the system. We also learn what our clients care about as we walk alongside them by investing in charities they see making a difference in this world. We chose to go with The Hunger Project this month because they spend over 80% of their expenses on charitable programs. Their mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocation for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world,” said Debbie Sims, Client Success Director, SmartSearch.

SmartSearch moves to Amazon WorkSpaces

Oceanside, CA – May 12th, 2021

With an increase in demand, SmartSearch® realized it was fast outgrowing its current hosting infrastructure.

To sustain this growth and provide clients with the fastest, most reliable access to their data from anywhere, they would need to move to a co-location facility or move to the public cloud.

The beautiful dashboard interface is more configurable to suit individual work-styles with dramatically reduced click-throughs to access the most commonly used data and functions. Users can quickly and easily create multiple, agile Smart Dashboards to support company best practices and personal preferences.

One of the smartest features of Version 21 is the “Smart Memory,” which stores work history to give users instant retrieval of recently accessed records. In addition, a new Drag-n-Drop feature makes it faster than ever to organize records, better manage sales and business development activities, match candidates to jobs, create talent pools, as well as quickly advance candidates in the hiring process. The popular HireTrak workflow toolset now “remembers” where candidates are at every step in the recruiting cycle and allows recruiters to drag and drop candidate data from any list into the next step in the process.

Version 21 features new Funnel Graphs for tracking sales and recruiting activity, improvements to the way candidate search results are ranked, additional display options on candidate records, and a new favorites tool for flagging candidates, hot jobs, and sales leads. Plus, the SmartCapture browser plug-in has been upgraded to update itself automatically making it easy to import candidates and business contacts from LinkedIn.

“The feedback on V. 21 has been overwhelmingly positive with comments like ‘sleek’ ‘beautiful’ ‘fast’ and ‘smart’ rounding out the top. Our clients are the single, greatest source of inspiration for us. Their input and feedback empower us to keep pushing the boundaries of innovation,” says Doug Coull, CEO, APS.

Though Version 21 is newly launched, additional enhancements and improvements to the software are already underway, including new vendor integrations and updates to partnerships with value-add service providers.

SmartSearch® Announces SmartSign Proprietary eSignature Service

smartsign

OCEANSIDE, CA – July 25, 2017  Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch® recruiting business software, announces the launch of a new electronic signature capability called SmartSign™. In line with the needs of a modern workplace, all functionality has been designed for use on any computer or mobile device, including smartphones and tablets.

show more

The SmartSearch® applicant tracking system has long supported paperless document management and integrations with popular eSignature providers. The new SmartSign™ option, offered exclusively to SmartSearch® users, features attractive, low-cost pricing and can further streamline collection of eSignatures. The new SmartSign™ option integrates seamlessly with the recently updated Onboarding Portal and existing Career Center web portals for Candidates and Hiring Manager self-service. Further, SmartSign™ supports business documentation including employment applications, offer letters, new hire onboarding forms, certifications, and contracts.

In regards to security, SmartSearch® already backs-up all data nightly and encrypts sensitive information prior to back-up on both disk and tape, which are then encrypted and sent off-site to a secure facility. For document signing, one more level of protection has been added. Whenever a document is signed, an additional copy of it is immediately stored in the SmartSearch® document “fortress,” which is then encrypted and sent to “the cloud”. Once there, no files may be accessed from any user interface, as it’s designed to be an isolated system to ensure the most sensitive documents are ultra-protected from disaster.

“Our clients want an efficient, secure eSignature service that can keep up with their needs so we delivered. What’s very exciting to us is that SmartSign™ is priced at a fraction of the cost versus external e-signing services and will support all recruitment, onboarding and business development documents with the security and flexibility they have come to expect from SmartSearch®,” says Doug Coull, CEO, APS, Inc.

All documents will be designed to collect both e-signatures and initials by candidates and new hires, as well as counter-signing by the hiring company or staffing agency representative. Additional capabilities will allow candidates to securely upload images for verification, which will be auto-sized to fit the document. To validate the seamless exchange and accuracy of documents, all activity will be date-stamped once the signature is created or an image is uploaded.
