This Communication Tech Piece Most Crucial & Overlooked in Recruitment…

Email confirmations.

Automatic, standard with applicant tracking systems (ATS), and easy to set up. Yet, sometimes this is an overlooked feature; especially with teams new to ATS software. Communication with candidates is key to maintaining a positive relationship with the public; even if you are delivering disappointing news to some.

When purchasing an item online, the standard etiquette includes receiving a confirmation email. Money is involved and a transaction took place. Yet, it also confirms that everything went smoothly, and that the ball is now in the company’s court to fulfill the next task.

Although filling out a job application doesn’t involve money spent, it involves money (that can potentially) be earned. Candidates actively looking for work take this very seriously. It is so important to acknowledge their time and effort, and confirm they successfully applied for a position.

No one likes to be ignored…

Acknowledge and appreciate the talented people interested in working for you! Use Pereless Systems applicant tracking software to set up custom email templates. Templates can be assigned to specific recruit flows and set to send automatically to every candidate that enters that flow; which solves the problem for email confirmations for new submitted applications!

Sending a friendly confirmation reassures candidates that their information will be reviewed and they can expect a response. This is an easy and professional way to maintain a positive relationship with candidates.

Maintain privacy while building a talent pool

Teams using the Pereless ATS can create a generic email address to communicate with candidates. This is a great way to build a talent pool and connect with candidates without compromising your personal email. All data is tracked and reported in the ATS!


Pereless users have the flexibility to customize the ATS to best fit their recruitment processes providing candidates a positive experience while relieving recruiters of manual work. In a technologically advanced age, why not use it to your advantage?

Recruiters, Fear Not The AI Tool…

Whether you like it or not, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming a new tool for efficiency.

In the recruiting game, AI is controversial.  Some estimate humans will be replaced with “bots” while others see it as an innovative tool to improve processes across the board.

Pereless Systems applicant tracking software just launched a new AI tool named Intelli-Match that will make recruiting smarter and easier while maintaining (human) recruiters as an essential part of talent selection. 

Intelli-match encourages hiring teams to build “smart” jobs while keeping these elements in mind:

  • Job location
  • Job title
  • Keywords
  • Candidate name
  • Candidate location
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Source

Intelli-match compares these main points to candidate application information to determine best suited applicants based on job data.

Within seconds, Intelli-Match will analyze and rank the candidate pool within a particular job to provide a best-match list. It is also a great tool for gathering important data on team productivity and progress.

Pereless Systems is offering a 3 month trial period to all current and new clients! Interested?

Benefits of Your Company Going Green

A very popular trend in business is going green and doing things in your company that benefit the earth. Many businesses are making greener choices to make a positive influence on the environment. These businesses are making a difference in the way consumers buy products and making themselves more competitive in the market. By going green, a company receives many benefits in their business as well as on the environment surrounding them. It is important for other companies to see these trends and stay up to date with them in order to stay competitive in their current market. Although many companies go green to increase their business, it is important to recognize the positive impact they are having on the environment as well.  

There are many benefits to going green, but the main benefit is how your consumers react to the change. As it becomes more popular to do things that help the earth, buyers are becoming more interested in purchasing products that either help the earth or buying from companies that give back to the earth.  By using the greener products as a way of marketing a company, consumers are drawn in and more willing to buy the products, creating more revenue for the company.

This change also makes a company more competitive in their own market. By marketing their green products, company’s are able to stand out compared to other competitors and generate more business. When moving to greener products, it is important to make consumers aware and use it as a way to better market your company.

Becoming a green company also increases a company’s corporate social responsibility. By creating greener products or making changes in an office to save energy or plastic, consumers become aware and start to generate a positive image for the company. This image is important because if consumers know you are benefiting the environment and making positive  changes within your company, consumers will become more loyal and dedicated to your company.

By building your corporate social responsibility, you can become more popular within your market and bring in more customers in the future. It is also important for your customers to know that you are building your business off of the positive impact it will have, and not just how much money the company is making.

Although creating greener products and making changes in your business that will positively affect the environment brings in many customers, it is important to look at how it benefits the environment. The trend of becoming more environmentally friendly in a business has become very popular and continues to keep growing. This change is making positive impacts on businesses and helping the environment one step at a time.

Pereless Systems Brings Machine Learning to Recruitment

RED BANK, NJ – Pereless Systems applicant tracking system (ATS) has released a new machine learning technology to their platform. The new technology will provide a “Intelli-Match” recruit flow to drastically decrease time to fill as well as screening time for recruiters.

The technology analyzes keywords, education, experience, and other candidate information to comprise a list of the best matches. With this option, clients will be shown the most ideal candidates based on historical hiring data and unique machine learning.

The development team on the project, whose background include projects with Google and Intel, is comprised of true innovators in the machine learning space.

“Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning is one of the most defining innovations that can be utilized in today’s recruiting.  Ultimately, we will be able to define best matches utilizing this technology and then aggressively deploy it through the rest of our applications to predict the best type of hires overtime,” says Pereless Systems CEO, Arthur Pereless.

The model does not take any of the key decision-making away from the client nor hide any information. One step further, the technology will analyze employee retention and calculate in what types of hires stay with the company for the long term. It will be able to learn far more about hiring practices than human analysis alone can provide.

“Most CEOs and CFOs realize that employee attrition is a bottom-line killer.  AI / Machine learning will allow companies to notice patterns and mitigate attrition as they become more knowledgeable about hires that stick,” Pereless continued.

The new technology will be implemented on all job types and categories within Pereless Systems, and work in conjunction with existing pre-screening question filters. With this product, every aspect of candidate research will be enhanced by insights garnered from years of candidate data across multiple industries and job types.

For existing Pereless clients, a 3-month trial will allow clients to see the benefits of Intelli-Match in real time. It will then become an optional feature.

The model will be steps beyond what is possible for new players on the market due to the fact that Pereless Systems has 20 years of data to use for the algorithm. From a technical standpoint, this current and old data will generate machine learning models meant to analyze the expectation that a candidate will be hired.

Top 3 HR Struggles of 2018 and How to Solve Them

The struggles of the HR department are continually changing. These are the most current issues that HR departments face and the solution to them.

Retaining talent

The job candidate search is difficult enough as is, but actually retaining hires is an entirely new challenge. Poor employee retention rates may have to do with varying factors such as company culture or salary, however the root of the issue often deals with the hiring process. Firstly, you need to attract the right job candidates, and secondly you need an efficient way to process applicants. Which leads to the next issue…

Keeping up with technology

Without sufficient technology, it is extremely difficult to attract, hire, and retain the right employees. Social media is a big part of drawing in candidates, but also your overall digital presence (such as your company website) is essential. However, even more significant than this is the technology that you use for hiring. You want an ATS with all of the features that you need.

Managing company culture and diversity

This issue ties back to finding the right candidate. You want a positive and innovative company culture and in order to create this you need diversity within the company. Diversity mostly involves getting a strong mix of different perspectives and personalities. Finding the right personalities once again has to do with the hiring process. Pay close attention during interviews and envision how the job candidate’s personality and ideas will influence the company and mesh with your company’s culture.

How to fix these issues:

The absolute best solution to these HR issues is having a reliable ATS. The easier it is to sort applicants and hire, the less issues you will have in the HR department. The people that you hire are the most important part of a company, so make sure you’re hiring the right way.

Benefits of Partnering to Grow Services

In business, partnering is a successful strategy to grow your business. Many companies, both small and large, use partnering as a way to expand their clients and promote their products. By having partners, companies gain the ability to use their partners clients and specific market to grow their own success. Partnering is a way to bring in new business while benefiting another companies success at the same time.

For small companies, partnering is very beneficial. By gaining a partner, small companies can connect with more developed companies to expand their client base. It is important for small companies, especially startups, to generate clients from many different markets. This will make their company more competitive in their own market while expanding in other markets. It is also important for small companies to use their partners to market their products.

Marketing can be expensive, so when the two partners work together they can market both of their products at one time, paying half the cost. This is also beneficial because both of their clients are seeing the other companies products that are being marketed, which brings attention to both of their products in different fields. When smaller companies join together with companies that are more developed than them, they can grow and develop faster than they would starting up on their own.

Although small companies gain heavy growth from partnering, it is also beneficial for larger companies to form partnerships. For larger companies, if they partner with other companies they can make deals to market both of their products even if they are selling to different target markets. For example, if you buy a certain product you can receive a discount on the other companies product. This gives people the incentive to buy both of the products, knowing they will receive a discount.  

Another benefit of partnering for larger companies is that when they join with small companies or non profits, they can also help improve their corporate social responsibility. If companies do this, people are intrigued by the good intentions of the company, which can bring in more business. It is also beneficial for companies to partner that are not in similar markets, so that new clients can see their products and how the two companies are working together.

Overall partnering can bring many benefits to both small and large companies. Working with other companies can help to expand a company’s client base and bring more attention to their company. It is a great way to market a companies products and have something new and exciting to interest their clients.
