"We are honored to be recognized by a prestigious award program for effectively leveraging cloud computing in our efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "Unlike many vendors in our space, we are dedicated to one section of human resources: talent acquisition. We believe that focusing on talent acquisition through a pure-SaaS delivery model allows us to stay ahead of the rapidly-changing trends of the industry and pump out quality products that incorporate those exact trends. Right now it is all about social, mobile, and video technology."

Just last month, iCIMS rolled out Talent Platform 13.2 to its current client base. The new release took iCIMS' flagship product to the next level by providing an enhanced candidate experience. With the introduction of new features like Mobile-Optimized Responsive Design Career Portals, Email Campaign Management for Connect, Social Candidate Ranking, and Enhanced Reporting, 13.2 increases iCIMS customers' ability to provide a superior candidate experience while simultaneously streamlining their recruitment processes.

Anticipation for the Video Cover Letter product launch, scheduled for late December 2013, is already building. This latest technology will allow candidates to submit short videos along with their traditional resume or employment application that can be recorded via smartphone, tablet, or desktop-mounted webcam with simple-to-use video technology within the iCIMS Talent Platform. This venue gives recruiters insight into a candidate's professionalism, personality and creativity, and allows candidates to showcase qualities that a traditional cover letter never could, such as passion, strong communication skills, and initiative.  

"At iCIMS, innovation is not just a goal, it is engrained in the cloud-based solutions that we pride ourselves in creating, maintaining, and updating. The reason why iCIMS can offer such innovative products and features is greatly attributed to the inherent software architecture," said iCIMS Chief Technology Officer, Paul Melici. "We support all customers on the same platform, same release, and same code base. Our products are never customized and never need local installation. This single code structure in turn allows us the ability to provide every customer with the most innovative and up-to-date features."
