According to Rodney Smoczyk, PHR, CDR at EDG Consulting Engineers, their talent management software has enabled his company to cut hiring time in half. "Posting to hiring used to take 45 to 60 days; we can now do it in 20 to 30 days. For one thing, time from submission of resume to interview used to be a week or two, because of passing around the resume and collecting comments. We can now get that done in a day," he says. The company uses HRsmart to handle the routing and commenting process. "If I like an applicant, I can route their resume with highlights and notes," Smoczyk explains. "The system tracks comments and notes and stores them with the resume." Later, he can search resumes in the system, including the notes stored with them. "It speeds the process up immensely." EDG also will soon start using HRsmart for performance appraisals. "The employee can do a self-evaluation, and the manager can do an evaluation, and they can look at them side by side." Since HRsmart is delivered as a service, the comparison can happen from different locations. In remote environments, they can both look at them from anywhere.
