Sterksen: “Search saves our researchers one hour a day in their search for candidates”
At the Sourcing event in Bunnik Carerix, software for recruiting and staffing, presented the integration with Textkernel Search!. Search! is Textkernel’s semantic search technology which allows Carerix users to easily search their Carerix database for candidates and at the same time find results from external sources.
Carerix customer Sterksen, specialist in IT recruitment, executive search, recruitment outsourcing and talent sourcing, is very positive about Search!. “We have been using Textkernel’s Search! in Carerix for a few months and it brings us tremendous time savings.“, says Donald Derksen, Managing Partner at Sterksen. “The user-friendly interface of Textkernel’s Search! saves our researchers one hour a day in their search for candidates. Due to the good results, we also have to spend less time on non-relevant candidates.”
Search! makes use of semantic search technology. This means the system is searching for what you mean, not what keywords you type. “An IT developer can also be called a Software Engineer.“, says Philip van Leeuwen, Partner Manager at Textkernel. “Search! makes use of an extensive list of synonyms, which allow you to find the right people based on their profile and not just based on what words they have in their CV.”
Carerix is happy with the integration of Textkernel’s search technology in their system. “With Search! we can offer our customers the ability to effectively search their database. At the same time they will find results from external databases. This supports Active Sourcing, an important theme for many of our customers.“, Arco Westbroek, Product Marketeer at Carerix explains.
