Keep reading for an overview of the key enhancements we’ve made throughout the year guided by our strategic “Understand, Connect, Analyze” framework.
UNDERSTAND – Set the groundwork for success with a solid data foundation
It’s a fundamental truth: the key to success is a steadfast data foundation. Central to this foundation are our AI-powered Parser and Skills Intelligence (formerly known as Data Enrichment). Explore the key enhancements that redefine the core of your data capabilities:
Next level parsing flexibility
With our LLM Parser (beta) and Flexrequests (beta) we’ve harnessed Textkernel’s Deep Learning expertise, proprietary taxonomies, and over two decades of parsing experience. Paired with Generative AI, this results in unparalleled accuracy and limitless flexibility in data extraction.
Enhanced Skills Intelligence Across Languages
Our Skills taxonomy now spans 25 languages (up from 16 last year) in both Parser and Skills Intelligence. Additionally, the Ontology API now covers 9 languages, expanding from the previous 6. Enhancing linguistic capabilities to better cater to your needs!
New Skills Intelligence (Ontology API) features
1. Skill-to-skill suggestions: Streamline the creation of skill profiles by suggesting related skills as possible additions or learning opportunities. 2. Skill similarity score: Boost the accuracy of skills-based matching by taking proximity between skills into account.
CONNECT – Scale and grow your business with workflow automation
Transitioning from accurate and structured people and job data, we delve into making data actionable and workflow automation. This is where the strength of our #BetterTogether product portfolio truly shines. The integration of Textkernel, Wise Guys, Joboti, Akyla, and Sovren ensures that your automation efforts are not only precise but also fortified by the collective strengths of these solutions. What’s new:
Bulk Select and Enhanced Multilingual Search Capabilities
Since February you can action your search results faster with our enhanced ‘Bulk select’ feature. Select up to 1,500 search results at a time! In June we made improvements for our international Search customers related to search capabilities in different languages and salary currencies.
Next-level Matching with AutoMatch
Say goodbye to manual effort with AutoMatch. Think Match, but with seamless automation behind the scenes, ensuring that every job uploaded into the system comes with a pre-matched list of suitable candidates. Automatch is currently in Beta in Bullhorn and soon will be available in Salesforce and as a standalone API!
Automated candidate engagement
Textkernel’s acquisition of Joboti in March 2023 combines advanced candidate engagement technology with AI-powered solutions. We can now not only match candidates with near-human accuracy but also actively engage with them, facilitating process automation. In May, we introduced self-service features, and Candidate Engagement now seamlessly integrates with Salesforce-based ATS (closed beta), allowing for the swift incorporation of WhatsApp use cases. Recruiters can effortlessly connect with the right candidates through this enhancement.
Mid-Office: Onboarding advancements
Elevating staffing beyond placements, Mid-Office refines onboarding, optimizes time registration, ensures compliance, and automates staffing workflows. This year we made significant advancements in the Onboarding module including seamless integration of Collective Labor Agreements, a substantial user experience improvement for flex workers, a streamlined document signing process, and enhanced security with the option for flex workers in the Netherlands to identify themselves using internet banking.
Automated messages via WhatsApp in Mid-Office Portal
Transform staffing administrative processes by integrating automated engagement with our mid-office portal. Implement reminders via WhatsApp for seamless communication with flex workers.
Auto-matching and Candidate Engagement:
Streamline the entire process—from matching to assessing candidates’ interest and availability. Activate additional workflows within or outside the ATS with proactive candidate engagement.
Auto-Matching for Redeployment of Temp Workers in Mid-Office
Enhance the redeployment and retention of temporary workers, extending their employment tenure. Through automatic matching and candidate engagement, guarantee a smooth transition for temporary workers into suitable new assignments as their current roles conclude.
ANALYZE – Support strategic decision making with accessible and reliable data
Building upon the foundation of a robust data infrastructure and the efficiency gained through workflow automation, we now focus on the critical aspect of analysis. Explore textkernel Labour Market Insights enhancements:
New and improved Jobs Data (Jobfeed) user interface
In April we launched a new interface to help you identify and secure new business quicker. With faster workflows, intuitive design, and tailored features, you have greater insights into the labor market and can ‘click to contact’ prospects from within the portal
Jobs Data Expansion
Jobs Data (Jobfeed) is now available for 15 countries with our latest additions, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland (and soon Japan).
Private Data feed (a search & match add on)
Returns powerful structured and enriched data from the indexed data within your ATS for in-depth analytics and understanding of your talent.
These enhancements are just a glimpse into our continuous efforts to provide best-in-class solutions for staffing, recruitment, and HR processes. We work with over a hundred innovative partners, ranging from dynamic local industry leaders to visionary international giants If you’re seeking specific integration enhancements or exploring opportunities for collaboration, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
