Assess Systems and JobApp Network Partner to Improve Hourly Hiring Process

DALLAS, April 28, 2011 — Assess Systems, a software and consulting firm providing selection and people development solutions, announced today an expansion of its partnership with talent acquisition system provider JobApp Network (JobApp).

As a leading provider of pre-employment assessments and competency-based talent development solutions, Assess Systems helps hiring managers determine an applicant’s suitability in a way that an application, reference or interview cannot. Their assessments help hiring managers assess the candidate’s fit with the position and the organization, allowing managers to select those with the greatest probability of success.

Examples of Assess Systems’ pre-employment assessments validated for specific associate and manager roles include: banking, call centers, convenience stores, retail, healthcare, restaurants and hospitality.

JobApp offers a complete hiring solution focused on the unique talent acquisition, onboarding and HR challenges faced by companies in the retail, foodservice, restaurants, healthcare, hospitality and service industries. JobApp has demonstrated strong market leadership in many of these market segments and is today recognized as the fastest-growing talent acquisition platform for organizations that predominantly hire on a high-volume and/or decentralized basis.

This partnership leverages the natural synergies between the two companies’ offerings.

“Here’s a world-class partner that helps us offer that next level of assessment,” said Ken Lang, vice president of sales for JobApp. “We are impressed by and look forward to further using Assess’ depth of knowledge and expertise.” Current customers of the combined solution include Checkers Drive In Restaurants (Checkers). Nearly 1,000 additional restaurant and retail locations are slated to begin using the Assess Systems assessment products through JobApp.

“One of the reasons for our selection of JobApp was the ability to assess candidates based upon customer service and dependability, both key components in the Assess Systems assessment,” stated Susan McBride, director of human resources at Checkers.

“We recognize the need for companies to have an end-to-end solution that seamlessly integrates leading talent selection platforms. JobApp is clearly a leader in this market space and we look forward to working even closer with them,” said Scott McTague, Director, Consulting Services for Assess Systems.

Assess Systems’ assessments have been jointly adapted for interactive voice response (IVR) to help meet the needs of clients in the restaurant marketplace. Significant emphasis is placed on the ability to offer applications and assessments over the phone with IVR, as up to 50 percent of the applicants for these jobs do not have convenient access to the Internet today.
