The Challenge

In order to attract highly qualified talents companies have to offer fast and easy application process with a focus on mobile career sites and applications. dm has identified this potential and is taking advantage of it by establishing an easy application process that did not require candidates to register or complete long forms.

The Solution

dm implemented Textkernel’s Quick Apply for SAP SuccessFactors to solve this problem. Applicants can now submit their relevant resume data quickly and easily without having to register beforehand, similar to ordering in online shops with a guest account. The new process complements the SAP standard and was developed by Textkernel in cooperation with the German IT consultancy for SAP cloud solutions, projekt0708. Quick Apply is also available in the SAP App Center.

The Result

Applicants can now upload their resume from their smartphone, directly from the cloud or even with their XING / social profiles. “Thanks to Textkernel’s semantic technologies Quick Apply extracts all required data and automatically stores it in the respective form fields of the recruiting system,” says Janine Fleck, Inhouse Consultant E-Recruiting at dmTECH. Time-consuming manual data entry is no longer necessary; a short final check of the data is all that’s needed before the candidate is in the system.

A positive side effect of the new application process is that the number of email applications trying to bypass the standard procedure has decreased, with applicants finding the one-click application more convenient. Additionally, HR managers at dm can use an internal Quick Apply to load manual email applications into the system, gaining easy access to even more candidates.
