r/ally – Adding Intelligence to the ATS for Staffing and Recruitment Professionals

By 2020 more than 40% of the workforce will be a temporary worker, contractor, or someone who will plan to be employed by more than one enterprise during each calendar year.

This presents a unique challenge for Staffing and Recruitment Professionals – both internally in the enterprise and externally employed by independent staffing and recruitment services companies. Searching databases of thousands, and in some cases, millions, of resumes to find the right individual quickly and efficiently is a labor-intensive task, particularly because today’s requirements from employers are for very specific skills and experience.

r/ally applies machine learning algorithms to our enterprise search solution to enable search consultants to find individuals already hidden in their existing ATS or legacy databases. Because of its comprehension of associated concepts, r/ally finds people with associated skills, knowledge or experience in your resume system that are closely connected to the skills you need, even if those skills are not specifically listed in your database.

And because r/ally is not another ATS or database system, it’s non-invasive. Once it’s connected to your ATS, it will automatically search updated profiles. Learn how r/ally significantly reduces the time and effort taken to find the required skills by getting the Staffing & Recruitment Case Study.

r/ally for Semiconductor, Aerospace & Technology Industries

Some of the products in electronics and manufacturing are designed to outlive the careers of the people who designed and created them. It’s not unusual for an integrated circuit or an avionics component to have a life span of decades.

Likewise the applications developed for large-scale enterprise IT projects also have a life span of many years and require continual maintenance. One of the biggest risks to these enterprises is that the developers and designers of these products retire or leave to work for a competitor.

r/ally’s Human Capital Strategic Planning enables enterprises to assess its skills inventory to determine at what point in time certain skills may be in short supply so they can augment skills or experience across the organization. This ensures that customer requirements, and Service Level Agreements are met, or that the product roadmap is not jeopardized by because the lead designer retires or leaves for a competitor.
