<strong>Hazlet, N.J. and Owings Mills, Md. &mdash; Jan. 21</strong><br />iCIMS, a leading provider of Web-based talent management solutions, and background screening industry innovator Employment Background Investigations Inc. (EBI) have announced the availability of an enhanced interface between their best-in-breed recruitment automation technologies. Since 2005, the alliance has allowed users of iCIMS&rsquo; iRecruiter Talent Platform to utilize EBI&#39;s full spectrum of award-winning background screening, drug-testing and occupational health-care solutions through the interface of the two software platforms. Today&rsquo;s developments takes this automation to the next level through a bi-directional interface that now returns results back into the user&rsquo;s iRecruiter database. <br /><br />The interface enhancements are designed to help HR professionals become more efficient in evaluating candidates and more competitive in their race to introduce new talent to their organization. The bi-directional capabilities now available, coupled with EBI&rsquo;s express return on screening data, will further reduce the time it takes recruiters and hiring authorities to complete these crucial stages of evaluation, ultimately reducing a corporation&rsquo;s overall time-to-fill metric.<br /><br />&ldquo;The reaction from iCIMS&rsquo; customers to this service has been phenomenal. The enhanced exchange of data brings our clients one step closer to a paperless recruiting environment,&rdquo; said Andrew Curtis, director of customer service.<br /><br />In addition, the expanded interface also includes iCIMS&rsquo; industry-recognized iForms technology, which turns previously paper-based processes into streamlined software-based results. Through iForms, users can have candidates and/or other hiring authorities complete background authorizations online. As a result, it has significantly reduced any possibility of transcription errors and increased accuracy in data capturing. Not only does this centralize all of the candidates&rsquo; information in one location, iForms also stores the printable version of the authorization document, complete with electronic signature, allowing corporations to further simplify the management of its compliance interests.<br /><br />&ldquo;EBI and iCIMS share similar philosophies as they pertain to the needs of HR technology buyers,&rdquo; said Colin Day, president and CEO of iCIMS. &ldquo;The service delivered to customers in many ways outweighs the importance of the technology to users, though with EBI we have found a great ally that has been able to deliver both to our rapidly growing customer base.&rdquo;<br /><br />Rick Kurland, president and CEO of EBI, expressed a similar point of view. &ldquo;Any partner that EBI aligns with must first place a considerable value on the customer experience, and that naturally led us to iCIMS,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;With so many providers in both the talent management and background investigations arenas, our ongoing success is tied directly to our ability to build a strong brand through customer success.&rdquo; <br /><br />Kurland concludes, &ldquo;This unique bi-directional interface now provides iCIMS&rsquo; clients with access to EBI&rsquo;s entire suite of award-winning technology and services. With a single click, iRecruiter users will have access to EBI&#39;s expanded range of services, which include background screening on both the global and domestic fronts, access to more than a dozen instant and express services which include EBI&rsquo;s national criminal record file, motor vehicle records, credit reports, Social Security number verifications and paperless form I-9 compliance solutions. Along with our wide array of robust and powerful reporting options, clients will be able to effectively manage their background screening programs to unparalleled levels.&rdquo;<br />
