StaffCV Leading Edge Psychometric Software

StaffCV Purchases Leading Edge Psychometric Software

StaffCV, a provider of leading recruitment management software, announced today that it has purchased from Carter Holt Harvey HR software business Mariner7, its leading edge psychometric profiling technology, Talent Engine.

StaffCV’s internationally competitive software enables employers to create a recruitment website from which to collect and manage candidate applications. StaffCV is a complete recruitment tool, designed to empower businesses of any size to manage their entire recruiting process.

Mariner7’s Talent Engine is a unique psychometric evaluation tool that captures a candidate’s work preferences. Its base premise is that if candidates are matched to roles based on what they like doing, then they are more likely to be satisfied, and therefore perform to a high level. Candidates are able to interactively build accurate profiles of themselves using a graphic interface, providing employers with a clearer picture of who they are and how they like to work.

By integrating psychometric evaluation within its software, StaffCV has developed a world first. “Traditional recruitment is undergoing a revolution, and we are leading the charge”, says Jason Kerr, CEO of StaffCV. “The Internet tools of the 1990s promised much, but struggled to deliver when it came to providing adequate tools for screening and filtering of candidates, and providing an equal opportunity evaluation and quality result”.

Kerr says that the new wave of recruiting is based on the concept of companies building and developing their own ‘private talent pools’ from which to recruit, “We really are changing the paradigm, by giving employers all the power, with none of the traditional costs associated with recruiting. Any employer can now become their own sophisticated recruiting agency” he says.

The acquisition of Talent Engine also included NZ$4.2 million of new development funding enabling StaffCV to launch their solution with sure footing in the market.

The psychometric software integration is one of several developments being undertaken by StaffCV. The company has recently completed integration within its software of over 900 job descriptions and job goals developed by the US Department of Labour, along with the ability to send SMS text messages to candidates – providing an exceptionally cost effective way to stay in touch with them.

StaffCV is also working to integrate Microsoft’s Passport and Messenger features to make the application process easier and faster, and is moving to implement the entire solution on Microsoft’s new .Net Server platform. StaffCV’s product offering is attracting wide interest in international markets. HR professionals enthusiastically previewed the solution at HRINZ’s Wellington Expo last week. The USA will see the tool showcased at Chicago’s HR Technology Expo on September 25 and 26.

StaffCV is a New Zealand owned company, headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, and has offices in Sydney, Kuala Lumpur and Chicago.
