Having the right information at the right time is the single most important factor that will determine the success of organizations today that need to hire the right talent to scale and support their growth objectives. Leadership team members who are responsible for workforce planning can't rely on anecdotal evidence alone. " -Steven Jiang, founder & CEO of hireEZ Many organizations today use the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to manage and organize data of applicants. This information is bound to become outdated and irrelevant. With EZ Rediscovery organizations will be able to leverage the profiles of potential candidates from their existing data by updating crucial data points like work experience, skills, and contact information. "We developed EZ Rediscovery to address a critical unmet need that so many organizations face today. Many recruiters rely on their ATS to search for potential candidates, but if that information doesn't reflect a candidate's recent work experience or includes incorrect contact information that puts the recruiter at a severe disadvantage. With EZ Rediscovery, recruiters can maximize the value of their ATS investment and easily sync candidate data across hireEZ and their ATS. EZ Insights provides the concrete and actionable data they need to make informed decisions." -Xinwen Zhang, CTO and co-founder of hireEZ
