HireVue and Avature Join Forces to Reinvent Talent Acquisition

HireVue's Digital Interviewing Technology Integrates With Avature's Industry-Leading CRM to Help Employers Source and Identify the Right Candidates Sooner

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- HireVue, provider of amazing new ways to interview -- through social, mobile and on demand technology -- and Avature, a leading provider of innovative Web 2.0 talent acquisition solutions delivered as SaaS, announced details of their strategic partnership and solution integration, which provides employers with a cutting-edge approach to improving sourcing and recruiting strategies.

HireVue and Avature have teamed up to develop a next-generation integrated solution that combines the best of HireVue's digital recruiting technology platform with the robust functionality of Avature's leading candidate relationship management (CRM) solution. The integration creates a more efficient, more effective process that changes the way employers source talent and enhances the experience for candidates, positively impacting employment brand and future workforce strategies.

Today's employers are challenged to conduct job candidate sourcing and screening in a recruiting landscape that is constantly evolving. Once employers cut through the noise and connect with candidates, they embark on a lengthy recruiting process, where candidates apply and participate in countless phone and in-person interviews and assessments, only to often discover that the candidate isn't right for the position.

Now Avature CRM users are able to schedule and review digital interviews with selected candidates using the HireVue platform, helping employers avoid the time- and resource-consuming traditional interview process to quickly target and connect with the right candidates. Avature users can access the mobile, social and on demand digital interviewing solutions -- including OpenVue™, HireVue's revolutionary social interview app -- directly from their CRM with a single sign-on process. Through the integrated solution, candidates introduce themselves to employers instantly, validating and bringing their skills and accomplishments to life whenever and however it's convenient for them, and much sooner in the talent acquisition cycle.

"HireVue shares our commitment to disrupting the status quo of recruitment to align with current communication trends and eliminate inefficiencies in the talent acquisition process," said Dimitri Boylan, CEO of Avature. "Through our partnership, we have combined the power of two game-changing recruitment technologies, allowing employers to find qualified candidates and make better informed hiring decisions much faster."

"Digital interviewing technology has truly changed the way that recruiters, hiring managers and job candidates communicate, and how employers engage with the talent that will help their organization gain a competitive advantage. Our cutting-edge social, mobile and on demand digital interview solutions have revolutionized the process and set new expectations for a unique and fair candidate experience, and an objective and efficient employee screening process," said Mark Newman, founder and CEO of HireVue. "We're excited to partner with Avature, and to combine our solution with the power of an industry-leading CRM to help employers nurture, identify and engage candidates quickly, enabling them to put exceptional talent to work for their companies right away."

HireVue will be exhibiting at the 2013 Avature Annual User Conference, from Monday, May 6 through Wednesday May 8, 2013 in Chicago. Attendees can learn more about the integrated solution and how HireVue's award-winning digital interviewing platform has transformed recruiting and screening during a special presentation at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7. HireVue's experts will also be available in the exhibit room where attendees can participate in hands-on digital interview demos and hear more about how Avature and HireVue are disrupting stale sourcing and screening strategies.
