Xref’s channel strategy of partnering with the market leaders in applicant tracking systems, the human resources management systems used by enterprises to manage employee recruitment, has substantially expanded the company’s addressable market and provides a highly scalable, low cost channel for acquiring new customers.
Six channel integrations are now ‘live’ worldwide. The company’s first integration with Oracle Taleo now supports Xref clients including BT Financial, NSW Department of Justice, NSW Family and Community Services, NSW Transport, PWC, Service NSW and Westpac. Xref clients can also now benefit from full integrations with Bullhorn, Expr3ss!, SmartRecruiters, iCIMS and Workday applicant tracking systems. These integrations have enabled Xref to become an integral part of human resource departments’ workflow, allowing Xref to quickly onboard new clients without the need for a large sales team.
Xref is also pleased to announce the release of the Xref Sentiment Engine, a value-added application that analyses references to provide employers with a valuable and easy to understand sentiment score. Xref Sentiment leverages the Company’s big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities which also support Xref’s fraud detection application.
Xref’s software as a service (SaaS) platform collects 60% more data five times faster than traditional methods and, by automating a vital task, protects companies from fraud, discrimination and privacy breaches. It is now used by more than 600 clients across 7 countries.
“We are very pleased to have achieved a strong close for the year significantly exceeding 100% year-on-year growth. The business also has very strong momentum moving in to FY2018 and we expect our sales records will continue to be broken throughout the year. This reflects our commitment and the value of our services to clients. We are continuing to build for growth through channel development, new partnerships and launching exciting new products such as Xref Sentiment which provides employers with an increased sense of a candidate’s professional performance and suitability for a role.”
