EmployeeScreenIQ and iCIMS Enhance Partnership to Provide Employers with a Smoother Candidate Screening Process

CLEVELAND, OH and MATAWAN, N.J., Nov 20, 2014 – EmployeeScreenIQ, a global provider of employee background screening services, and iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, have upgraded their longstanding platform integration to provide customers with fully streamlined, paperless background checks. By utilizing iCIMS’ new Application Programming Interface (API) protocols, customers will benefit from a smoother screening process.
For many employers,  pre-employment screening is necessary but has historically required significant manual labor that is often challenging to manage. Contacting applicants, collecting release forms and capturing sensitive information is time-consuming, inefficient and poses significant risks.
Designed to save time on repetitive tasks, increase productivity and promote security, iCIMS has for several years been seamlessly integrated with EmployeeScreenIQ’s premium employee background check service to offer a simple, smart, safe and stable pre-employment screening and talent acquisition processes.
iCIMS has recently upgraded its integration API to better serve customers, giving its partners an opportunity to update as well. Always at the forefront of technology, EmployeeScreenIQ took advantage of this opportunity. The upgrade is now available to EmployeeScreenIQ customers currently on the iCIMS Talent Platform.
“Technology in the  talent acquisition industry moves pretty fast and if you’re not armed with the best and most innovative tools, you could be missing out on top talent,” said Joel Cheesman, director of strategic alliances at EmployeeScreenIQ. “iCIMS’ API upgrade is very impressive and will offer customers a quicker and smoother integration. We’re very satisfied with how the upgrade has turned out and we’re happy to be offering this improved service to our shared customers.”
Significant integration update benefits include:
· Smooth integration setup that is readily available to clients
· Enhanced user experience designed by iCIMS
· Real-time data exchange
· Background check statuses are updated in real time
“We’re excited to offer the API upgrade to customers of both iCIMS and our trusted partners including EmployeeScreenIQ,” said Susan Vitale, iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer. “Through these updates, customers will benefit from smoother, quicker, more comprehensive integrations. Ultimately both iCIMS and EmployeeScreenIQ are focused on supporting our customers with best-fit tools to help them achieve their organization’s hiring goals.”
iCIMS and EmployeeScreenIQ are excited to offer this upgrade to customers to further support the process of performing integrated background checks on current and future job candidates.
