Pointwing Recruiting Software Mass Resume Parsing Improves Recruiting Productivity

Atlanta, GA, Sep 03, 2010 ( via COMTEX) -- For recruiting firms today who are swamped with job applicants, nothing is more labor-intensive than having to parse hundreds of resumes received for every job posted. Now, Pointwing ( recruiting software automates mass resume parsing so that recruiters can work on more productive tasks.

Pointwing gives recruiters the ability to select large groups of electronic resume documents that may be from job applicants or from Internet searches of Job Boards for parsing and submit them to the Pointwing Queue for processing in the background. In this way hundreds of resumes can be parsed automatically into the Pointwing recruiting software database. This improves recruiter productivity and performance as the recruiter can go on working in Pointwing instead of waiting for each resume to be parsed and recorded.

Simplifying the candidate acquisition process, Pointwing's fully integrated resume parsing features artificial intelligence and HR-XML standards to reduce the time and effort recruiters spend on resume handling. Pointwing can parse virtually any text-based resume document file type for contact information, skills, job history, education history, licenses and certifications. Queued mass resume processing then creates new candidate records from the parsed resumes and flags duplicate resumes for review and action.

The user can monitor and manage the progress of their resume parsing processes in real-time in the Pointwing Queue if desired. Any resume that fails the parsing process is flagged with the reason for its failure, enabling the user to take actions to correct the resumes or resubmit the process.

Steve Taylor, President and CEO of VCG, said "Saving time and effort reduces recruiting costs, and Pointwing gives users a truly easy means to get more done with less effort by parsing large groups of resumes automatically in the background."
