Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, announced a new strategic partnership with Montage, the single solution to engage, interview and hire better candidates, faster. The goal of this partnership is to allow both companies to leverage their respective platforms in bringing the next generation of predictive talent analytics and interviewing technology together during the hiring process.
Infor and Montage want to provide candidates with a coherent interviewing and assessment experience while also empowering companies to move quickly between scheduling, assessment and interviews to help them make smarter, more informed hiring decisions.
According to the announcement, the intent of this partnership is to help recruiters solve one of their primary challenges of quickly hiring the right people while maintaining a candidate-centric experience throughout the process. Montage works to deliver both efficiency and an interview experience that meets the needs and expectations of the modern candidate; while Infor Talent Science strives to deliver accurate, data-driven prediction to help ensure companies can identify the right candidates for the right roles.
“Since our inception, Montage has been dedicated to offering the better candidate experience and solving the challenges of talent acquisition in the enterprise,” said Kurt Heikkinen, President and CEO of Montage. “We expect our partnership to take the recruiting process to another level by delivering the insight and information to help our clients make smarter hiring decisions without sacrificing the experience.”
The integration is expected to allow clients to have quick access to candidate-specific data from the Talent Science solution which can be used to drive the development of candidate-tailored interview questions. In addition, both companies plan to work to expand the predictability model further to provide greater sophistication and predictability into the hiring process by incorporating natural language processing into the interview evaluation process.
Infor’s Talent Science solution can help recruiters and hiring managers place the right people in the right positions by leveraging large quantities of behavioral and performance data from both within client organizations and the broader workforce. The application uses a data-driven process to help uncover what drives real success within a business and then powers the selection of talent by identifying candidates who share the same drivers.
“One goal of this partnership is to allow organizations a higher level of flexibility in the pre-hire phase as they seek to identify the right people for the right roles,” said Jill Strange, vice president of Science Applications, Infor. “By leveraging machine learning combined with interviewing technology, we believe we can help companies to better on-board quality candidates. By integrating these two technologies we expect to offer a more coherent and unified candidate experience while introducing a higher degree of predictability to the customer.”
