RiseSmart to Showcase Transition Concierge 5.0 at 2011 HR Technology Conference & Exposition

September 29, 2011

RiseSmart, the leading provider of next-generation outplacement solutions, will introduce Transition Concierge 5.0, the newest release of its flagship corporate outplacement service, at the 14th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas, October 3-5. Attendees can learn more about the solution, which will be commercially available next month, at Booth #334.

"One of the reasons that Transition Concierge has been such a breath of fresh air for our customers is that we listen to them and are able to quickly make enhancements to our online interface and features to better serve them,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. "The 5.0 release of Transition Concierge further integrates the latest in social media, among other tools, to help jobseekers find jobs faster and employers achieve greater accountability in their outplacement programs.”

New and enhanced features in Transition Concierge 5.0 include:

My Profile – With enhanced resume parsing, My Profile makes it simpler than ever for jobseekers to enter their information, such as work experience, education and job preferences. With that input, Transition Concierge provides targeted job leads, resume-strengthening suggestions and tailored coaching of clients.

My Connections – Using social media sites, Transition Concierge helps clients capitalize on their relationships with those at designated companies and in specified jobs. They can even reach out and request assistance.

Social Media Report Card – Job searches increasingly are going social, and Transition Concierge provides users with a free assessment of their online and social media presence. They can even download a report on how to fine-tune their digital image.

My Companies – This allows a user to track companies they would like to work for and recommends new ones based on information provided. There’s background on companies, including news, financials, lists of key people, even maps of their locations.

Transition Concierge 5.0 also boasts several improvements, including a cleaner and more functional Career Toolbox, which displays targeted articles and other helpful information, as well as increased speed overall.

"Transition Concierge arms workers with the most powerful set of job search tools available today," Sathe said. "The result is that we are putting transitioning employees in new jobs twice as fast as the national average, while reducing costs for employers.”
