Talent management leader introduces an improved user experience, analytics tools, as well as new onboarding and process management solutions that open up ‘more possibilities’ for advancing academic missions.
AUSTIN, Texas — April 18, 2016 — PeopleAdmin, the leader in talent management software for education, today announced the launch of new and enhanced solutions that improve how colleges and universities find, hire and develop a diverse workforce, continuing the company’s growth and marketplace momentum to better meet the talent needs of our nation’s educators.
As a result of working with hundreds of customers, the company is introducing more solution enhancements than it has in years. With these additions, PeopleAdmin’s SelectSuite is the most complete talent management solution for higher education.
In addition to updates that include significant improvements and new capabilities to SelectSuite, the company is making enhancements in other areas, including to its support services, upholding its promise to deliver an “amazing customer experience.”
For instance, it is expanding support offerings such as instant “chat,” significantly broadening its knowledge base with more self-service tools, and soon introducing longer support hours. The company also now offers the innovative Smart Start implementation methodology, which ensures dramatically shorter implementation and upgrade processes, improved time to value, and predictable timelines — all at a competitive price.
“We’re listening to our customers and quickly responding to their technology and service needs,” said Kermit S. Randa, CEO of PeopleAdmin. “With this launch, we’re taking the most trusted, widely used talent management solution and services in education and making them even better and easier to use.”
SelectSuite customers can expect improvements to Applicant Tracking, beginning with a modern new look and feel that improves efficiency and lays a foundation for future upgrades. New, more cost-effective packaging of the solution has been created to help customers benefit from best practices.
Enhancements have also been made to the candidate experience process. By adding social media and resume parsing functionality, a college or university can attract more applicants and promote the school’s brand at the same time.
And with the addition of a new SelectSuite Analytics toolset, PeopleAdmin provides easy access to actionable insights into the recruiting process and diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. “Having the ability to instantly manipulate data and show it to our stakeholders is huge,” said Demetrius Bynes, Director of Employment Services at Georgia Southern University. “We can talk all day about how being diverse will bring a more harmonious working environment, but analytics will show where we are now so we can work toward a better future.”
Because onboarding new employees is a critical component that can often impact long-term tenure, PeopleAdmin’s new Employee Records makes this process easy and replicable, dramatically reducing the time spent by HR bringing on new hires. “The ease of the configurable programs have empowered our employment team to customize forms, workflows and checklists for dozens of onboarding scenarios,” said Wendy Haynes, manager of compensation and recruitment at Tarleton State University. “This makes it so easy to continue refining and optimizing our processes.”
Employee Records will also help manage crucial documents and streamline and automate the processes around those documents, including adjunct reappointments, contracts, and personnel action forms. This configurable solution reduces error, saves time, and improves compliance.
Other upcoming enhancements include improvements to the new mobile site capabilities, including new site templates, and even more enhancements to the search committee user experience.
Randa says that the new enhancements will be rolled out in the coming weeks and months. “Our first priority is to continue to engage with our customers to make it easy for them to get the most out of these enhancements, so they can better focus on student success.
“Our focus on innovation and service will not stop,” he added. ”Our customers can expect from us a regular cadence of improvements and new tools, as we continue to support them and their academic missions.”
