Open Text releases Recruiting Management for Microsoft SharePoint

Native Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Application Streamlines Complex Hiring Processes, Minimizes Time Required for Hiring Managers Involved in Recruiting

WATERLOO - Open Text(TM) announced yesterday the release of Open Text Recruiting Management for Microsoft SharePoint, a native Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 application for collaborative hiring case management that helps to simplify the recruiting process within organizations. This release is part of a continuing Open Text strategy to build applications that extend Office SharePoint Server 2007, based on the Open Text ECM Suite.

Recruiting processes in any organization can be complex, involving numerous approvals, collaboration with many departments, interactions with multiple HR systems and many pieces of content such as resumes, credentials, certificates, application forms, etc. To help today's organizations manage the inherent complexities of the corporate hiring process, Open Text Recruiting Management for Microsoft SharePoint offers a collaborative, flexible case management application that brings simplicity, efficiency and automation to the recruiting process.

"In today's economy, many companies are restructuring and consolidating operations, and as they make these changes, they're finding holes in their personnel rosters," said Jens Rabe, Vice President, Microsoft Solutions Group at Open Text. "Like any business process, hiring must be done more effectively and at a lower cost. Open Text Recruiting Management for Microsoft SharePoint allows hiring managers to efficiently manage recruiting documents and data from within SharePoint Server 2007, providing superior ease of use and full visibility of the entire recruiting process."

"The business processes associated with hiring employees are often challenging and labor intensive to manage," said Tom Rizzo, Director of SharePoint at Microsoft. "With Open Text Recruiting Management for Microsoft SharePoint, Open Text is expanding on the SharePoint Server 2007 platform to make the end user experience seamless in getting relevant candidate data and content."

The new solution highlights Open Text's unique approach to Microsoft SharePoint. Rather than competing with SharePoint, Open Text is creating specialized ECM applications designed to run natively on top of SharePoint. Last year, Open Text introduced a case management framework which lets developers easily create functional extensions to SharePoint. Open Text uses the framework to create a series of ECM applications for SharePoint, including Open Text Legal Information Management, a specialized ECM application for law firms, and now the new recruiting solution announced.
