Gild Launches the Gild Platform

Gild launched The Gild Platform, the first end-to-end intelligent hiring platform designed to help companies across all functions and industries hire faster than their competitors. The new Gild Platform uniquely brings together intelligence, automation and collaboration so that companies can make better hiring decisions, more efficiently. The Gild Platform is extensive in scope covering sourcing, passive candidate management via a CRM, applicant tracking, job postings and distribution, career site hosting, automated interview scheduling with integrated video interviewing, along with integrated, smart recommendation systems to help companies make faster and better decisions on candidates - all on one comprehensive platform. This eliminates the need for separate systems and seamlessly integrates data between these applications. No other recruiting solution provides the breadth of services offered by The Gild Platform. The Gild Platform is also the first solution in the industry to be launched with a publicly published and open API. This enables developers and other software companies to develop and release third-party applications, which will seamlessly integrate with all other applications on the platform. The new Gild Platform is a customizable, complete intelligent hiring solution that provides the broadest range of integrated applications on the market. Intelligence: Using Gild's patented algorithms, the platform makes smart recommendations for recruiters, helping them identify and connect with the right professionals at the right time. The Gild Platform seamlessly integrates data and workflow. So, for example, information on a candidate in the CRM is automatically updated and Gild's Spotlight feature informs recruiters when a passive candidate in their pipeline is likely to be looking for a new job. Automation: The Gild Platform automates the many manual tasks recruiters and hiring coordinators perform - from manual data entry, to interview scheduling, to candidate and task tracking and more. For example, Gild's Jobs application helps recruiters quickly post targeted job descriptions directed to specific candidate profiles - maximizing views - similar to how Google helps marketers write better ads. Collaboration: The Gild Platform truly enables collaboration between recruiters and hiring managers through an easy to use, mobile enabled user interface and with a unique collaboration and communication system that eliminates the need for email. The new Gild Platform will be available in early 2015. The platform is customizable to meet complete and specific hiring needs of companies across all industries.
