Selection Management: The Future of HR Technology

A lot of people ask us whether Hireology is an applicant tracking system, a series of assessment tools, or a platform for background checks. The answer is that Hireology is a Selection Management System, and selection management is what we “do.”

What is Selection Management?

Selection Management takes the four existing categories of hiring-related HR Technology – applicant tracking, testing and assessment, verification, and onboarding – and combines them into one integrated platform to answer the “which person should I hire?” question. 

Selection Management Systems, pioneered by Hireology (we’re very proud), brings all of these features together without the need for multiple vendors or costly integrations.  For companies looking for selection management that’s easy-to-buy and easy-to-use, a Selection Management System is the way to go.

We call our selection management tool the “Selection Manager” because it’s the platform that helps you do the hard work of picking the right person for the job.

What does your “Selection Manager” do?

Hireology’s Selection Manager is everything you need to organize and streamline your company’s hiring process.  Our patent-pending job profiling and interview scoring algorithms help you organize the hiring process and make better choices – all in one easy-to-buy, easy-to-use platform.

If your company is evaluating technology to help with the recruitment process, Hireology is the answer.  Selection Manager is so much more than an applicant tracking system – it’s everything you need to organize and streamline your company’s hiring process.  Take advantage of capabilities like online applicant management, job profiling, customized candidate interview guides and scoring, online skills testing, behavioral interviews, and verification services like background checks and drug screening, all on one platform.

Already have an existing ATS at your company?  Not to worry: Hireology’s Selection Manager integrates seamlessly into the leading ATS platforms through our API.  You’ll get the interview and selection functionality that your current solution lacks, without having to sacrifice current HR technology investment.

Why do I need Hireology’s Selection Manager?

These days, it’s all about selection management, not resume storage.  Traditional Applicant Tracking systems are extremely limited in their ability to help your managers make better hiring decisions.  You’ll be able to store and organize resumes, perhaps connect to a few job boards, and run some reports, but functionality typically stops there.

Hireology’s Selection Manager performs all of the core functions of an applicant tracking system, but gives you capabilities that were previously unavailable anywhere on the market: a full-featured job profiling system, complete with interview guides, scorecards, and a proprietary candidate scoring system that helps you pick the right person for the job, every time.

What’s more, you’ll have access to all of the tools that you need to run an effective selection process, including online skills testing, behavioral interviews, and verification services like background checks and drug screening.

When it comes to Selection Management, Hireology’s the clear leader. Why buy an ATS when you can buy a full-featured Selection Management System from Hireology?
