New Release of aQayo Automates Social Recruiting

aQayo Pte Ltd, Asia’s leading provider of e-recruitment system, today unveiled the newest version of aQayo, the most complete solution to manage talent acquisition - from sourcing to applicant tracking to reporting.

Singapore, Singapore, September 03, 2011 --( Using feedback and contributions from its growing user base, the aQayo Research & Development team released a new version of the system last week which makes it even easier for global enterprises to automate tasks related to social recruitment. The upgraded application offers added customization features so recruiters can further streamline their recruitment activity, particularly to include social networks as a source for the best talent. New features include a powerful scripting engine which takes customization to the next level, greater integration with social media networks, and the groundbreaking SocialRank™ add-on which ranks candidates based on their social influence.

“As social networks become more pervasive, and the war for talent ramps up, recruiters need to equip themselves with the right tools and techniques to be competitive,” said Max Armbruster, Founder of aQayo. “With aQayo’s SocialRank™, we are helping hiring managers and recruiters rank their applicants in an all-new way, instantly determining their degree of connectivity. This is done by identifying which people serve as bridges between different groups. These ‘connectors’ typically have the strongest interpersonal skills, the most social influence, and are often thought leaders in their field of expertise.”

The latest version of aQayo incorporates a number of leading features, including:

Powerful Scripting Engine Allows for Unlimited Customization — Based on JavaScript, it offers new ways to customize recruitment workflows. aQayoScripts are triggered by events such as the creation or modification of an applicant’s record.

Greater Integration with Social Media Networks — As social media integration matures, businesses using aQayo’s tighter integration with Google+, LinkedIn, or Facebook will have a competitive advantage in their fight for talents. Companies can now publish their job openings seamlessly on the various social platforms, as well as view if a candidate’s stated areas of expertise are supported by his online presence.

SocialRank™, the World’s First Candidate Ranking Tool Based on Social Influence — The rise of social media offers employers a new way to measure the degree of influence & domain expertise of certain applicants. With the unveiling of SocialRank™, aQayo rises to the challenge: hiring managers can now be empowered with a ranking of applicants based on their social media influence.

Improved User Interface — aQayo offers a streamlined user experience to increase productivity. The streamlined look and feel and simplified navigation make common tasks easy and require fewer clicks.
