SmartSearch® collaborates with the Superior Group on integration with SAP

OCEANSIDE, CA February 11, 2011 — Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch®, an industry-leading recruiting business software solution, has partnered with the Superior Group and its SAP implementation team to develop a custom integration that facilitates the flow of critical information from SmartSearch into SAP. Customers rely on the Superior Group to provide a complete range of workforce and business management solutions, and this integration will help Superior strengthen the value of the services that it delivers.

Now in the final stages of testing, an important requirement of the SAP/SmartSearch integration project was to ensure that all hiring activity initiated within the SmartSearch recruiting system will transition seamlessly between SAP and SmartSearch. This ongoing flow of critical business information required a `bulletproof’ solution.

“We are happy to announce that through close cooperation with Superior, and the SAP implementation team, we have achieved a virtually fool-proof integration,” said LJ Morris, CTO at APS. “We are honored that Superior has placed so much trust in our longstanding relationship to develop a sophisticated custom solution for its business requirements. Superior is truly a leading-edge, innovative organization, and APS is pleased to offer this integration as part of the SmartSearch arsenal of tools.”

Scott Stenclik, President of Superior Technical Resources—a member of the Superior Group—noted, “The bottom line is that SmartSearch integration with our internal systems amplifies our recruiting efficiency and overall performance, and also helps to manage OFCCP and other government agency compliance requirements. Over the years, we have been impressed with SmartSearch’s responsiveness to our needs, so it was only natural that we looked to them for taking the next step in integrating their solution with SAP.”

Superior has been using SmartSearch since 1989 for both talent and customer relationship management. SmartSearch® integration with leading job boards and social networking sites enables Superior to post jobs to many major external sites such as and CareerBuilder and search their resume databases as well as post jobs and network within social media giants Twitter and LinkedIn – all without leaving SmartSearch. This ensures Superiors’ employees achieve the highest productivity possible by obviating the need for users to master numerous interfaces and systems and keep track of myriad account information and passwords.

SmartSearch is designed to seamlessly integrate with existing systems and applications for managing all employment-related information. The system shares data between systems via XML or web services to export/import information and facilitate exchange of information to a number of HRIS, ERP, payroll, and accounting systems. Data export can include new hires, pay changes, terminations, timecards, expenses, approval routing, and more.

In addition, SmartSearch supports integration with many internal and external applications—such as VoIP, text messaging, background checking, and pre-employment assessments—creating the optimum platform for sharing information, eliminating duplicate data entry, and ensuring data integrity.
