The new Yahoo! Resumix platform is designed to assist hiring managers and recruiters in finding the best candidate for open positions in a real-time environment, according to the Yahoo! Resumix Web site.
This is accomplished though a number of improvements such as:
- separately designed dashboards for recruiters and hiring managers
- search and extraction technology designed to match candidates to job openings, applying 250,000 rules to extract the best candidates from a database of resumes
- ability to use the current employee’s resume to help with the search for a candidate with similar skills.
Further, the system offers integration with HR solutions from Oracle, SAP, PeopleSoft, and Lawson. Typical pricing for Hiring Gateway starts at around $200,000 for on-premise deployment. However, the exact pricing is determined by the number of users accessing the system and the amount of professional services involved.
