RiseSmart Unveils SmartConsult™

November 19, 2010

RiseSmart, a provider of next-generation outplacement and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solutions, today announced the release of SmartConsult™, a new strategic HR recruitment assessment solution that guides employers through an in-depth process evaluation of their recruitment activities, and recommends improvements to an organization’s HR function. Using RiseSmart’s SmartConsult, organizations can help cut the recruitment cycle time by 30 to 40 percent.

SmartConsult, which is part of RiseSmart’s Recruit Concierge™ RPO solution, is a blend of high-touch and high-tech mapping and consultation services that help organizations better understand, modify, and improve recruitment activities to increase HR department efficiency and effectiveness. Using SmartConsult, organizations can quickly map current and future recruitment activities, including techniques, tools, technology, and staff members, to align them with the overall business strategy.

SmartConsult has been designed specifically to automate HR sourcing, scheduling, and screening activities and tracks and monitors these processes to provide complete visibility and compliance.

“Today’s business climate is forcing organizations to be extremely selective about hiring as they takes steps forward to grow,” said Bill Sebra, general manager of recruiting solutions for RiseSmart. “SmartConsult allows human resource departments to carefully examine the recruitment strategy process they currently use, clearly see the gaps, and move quickly to make improvements to put it solidly in line with business objectives. Reducing the recruitment cycle through smart selection and hiring reduces costs for the organization, and saves time for the human resources department and for hiring managers.”

SmartConsult is a new addition to RiseSmart’s Recruit Concierge™ solution, which is a comprehensive recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solution. Services include full life-cycle recruiting to meet all of an organization’s hiring needs, including candidate sourcing and recruitment process consulting. RiseSmart delivers a seamless and integrated process, customized to meet each customer’s specific needs.

“RiseSmart allows companies to harness the power of information and put it to work for them,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “SmartConsult is another way for that information to ultimately benefit a company’s bottom line. By thoroughly understanding and streamlining the recruitment process, companies can get to their next great hire faster, and not spend as much time and money getting that person, and many others, through the door.”

SmartConsult is integrated into RiseSmart’s Recruit Concierge solution, or is available as a standalone product. Interested in learning more about RiseSmart’s SmartConsult? Contact RiseSmart at (408) 886-3413 or Sales@RiseSmart.com.
