Textkernel Integrates New Business Development and Sourcing Tools into Bullhorn to Increase Recruiter Productivity

AMSTERDAM – 4 MAY 2017 – Textkernel, the leader in machine intelligence for matching people and jobs, announced today an integration of its business development and sourcing tools with Bullhorn, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their businesses, to enhance enterprise recruiter productivity by allowing them to make faster and smarter placements and create efficiencies in the recruitment process.

Textkernel’s Match! generates automatic searches from job descriptions or candidates’ resumes to provide a shortlist of the best matching candidates or jobs from staffing and recruitment companies’ databases, allowing recruiters to be more efficient in their jobs. Clients can match job requisitions to their candidate database, and match their other available candidates to their jobs and with Jobfeed – Textkernel’s online job database for lead generation – to all employer jobs in the market.

Jobfeed aggregates and categorizes job listings from around the web, distinguishes direct employers from agencies, and makes these listings searchable, allowing clients to generate high-quality leads directly into Bullhorn’s applicant tracking system and recruitment CRM. In combination with Textkernel’s powerful matching technology, staffing and recruitment companies can identify interesting job opportunities to place their other candidates.

“We’re excited to integrate our new tools into Bullhorn, a leading CRM and operations platform for the staffing and recruiting industries,” said Jakub Zavrel, Textkernel CEO and founder. “Recruiters can actively identify new leads and match these opportunities to relevant candidates within their ATSes. Conversely, they can match their number two, three, and four candidates to their jobs and all employer jobs in the market. The benefits of the combination of Bullhorn and Textkernel is helping recruiters make faster placements, increase revenue, and provide better fill rates.”

Jon Cox, Director, UK, Europe, Middle East at Contracts Consultancy Limited (CCL) speaks highly of Textkernel’s advanced matching technology that’s behind this integration: “Textkernel has exceeded CCL’s expectations, and we are very pleased to be one of the first implementations with Textkernel’s full suite integrated into Bullhorn. We have reduced our time to resource vacancies by about 50 percent. Less experienced recruiters can work vacancies beyond their knowledge and comfort zones, beyond Boolean, as Textkernel’s technology builds the searches automatically, and ranks the most suitable candidates.”

“The most precious commodity for recruiters is time,” said Gordon Burnes, CMO of Bullhorn. “By leveraging cutting-edge artificial intelligence, Textkernel delivers to recruiters more hours back into their day and makes them more productive and better able to grow and scale their candidate relationships.”
