“ Cloudant gives us a reliable platform to deliver a new generation of smarter recruitment services that genuinely add value for our clients. ”
Martin Müller, CEO and co-founder, softfactors
softfactors is a recruitment services and software development company based in Zürich, Switzerland. Its cloud-based softfactors.com solution analyzes applicants’ resumes and soft skills, and matches them with the requirements of each job opening. By matching candidates to roles more effectively, the solution aims to reduce the cost and complexity of hiring processes and mitigate the risk of employee turnover.
Most applicant tracking systems focus on candidates’ qualifications and experience – but soft skills such as empathy and leadership are equally important in hiring and retaining the right employees.
softfactors has leveraged IBM cloud data services to rapidly develop an innovative application that assesses candidates’ soft skills and automatically matches them to appropriate roles.
Within four months, softfactors launched a service that cuts the average number of interviews per job opening from 10 to just three, saving time and costs for HR teams and applicants alike.
