The Challenge

High volume of applications meant manual work was not scalable

ARTS faced a challenge of scalability. With 1000+ job applications per month, the company was looking for a system to automate the parsing of candidate resumes and reduce the manual work required to process their applications. ARTS decided to leverage Textkernel’s expertise in automated resume parsing and replaced their own self-developed matching system with Textkernel’s AI-powered technology.

The Approach

Automate resume parsing and improve the candidate experience

Textkernel’s Extract! resume parsing, as well as the candidate-facing Apply-with widget, were integrated into ARTS’ recruitment workflow.

Extract! automated the parsing of resumes to reduce the manual time spent capturing candidate details. In addition to speeding up the process of creating a candidate profile, Extract! automatically enriches the profile with additional details to provide for optimum searching and matching.

Meanwhile, the Apply-with widget allowed their candidates to complete an online application in seconds from PC or mobile by simply uploading a resume from a device or the cloud.

The Result

ARTS can now scale to process significantly more applications per month. After implementing Textkernel’s Extract! resume parsing ARTS has seen their processing time reduced by up to 50%, making it easier and faster to load applicants into their system.

“Like working as one team” with ARTS and specialist integrator manaTec

ARTS has been working closely together with manaTec – an integration partner for the ERP system Odoo – to integrate their CRM, project management and recruiting processes into one Odoo system, and combine it through automated methods with the job portal website from ARTS. This project was a step forward towards digitalization and modern processes which required extensive work and resources from three different companies.
