**SAN FRANCISCO – Aug. 28, 2012** – Jobscience, the leader in Social Relationship Management for HR, today announced that Jobscience FastPass is now available to Kenexa customers who have been impacted by IBM’s acquisition of the company. With this program, Kenexa customers have a clear path to deploying best-in-class sourcing, recruiting, hiring, assessment and learning applications that leverage the latest innovations in Talent Management and take advantage of the world’s leading cloud platform.
“At no time in recent memory has the Talent Management space seen so much market share shift to Big Box vendors who lack the agility to provide true innovation in challenging times for hiring,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “Big Box software like Oracle, SAP and IBM may not be the right fit for companies struggling to be agile in a challenging recruitment environment where there are plenty of unemployed candidates, but very few applicants with the right skills. Recouping the costs of acquisitions as opposed to investing in innovation in sourcing, interconnectivity and mobility may leave corporate consumers stuck with products that are obsolete.”
“Since no one knows what will be the next popular social network that companies need to tap into to engage talent, it’s more important than ever for organizations to have the flexibility to choose agile applications that keep up with the rapidly changing Talent Management landscape,” continued Elliott. “We are extending our FastPass program to Kenexa customers so they can easily embrace our leading Social Relationship Management solution on an open platform where they can easily connect to the tools that will best meet their business needs.”
The Jobscience FastPass program is now available to all Big Box software customers forced onto Oracle, SAP and IBM. The program includes:
• Guaranteed 25% discount off a Kenexa, Taleo or SAP recruiting solution contract
• Free 20-day trial of Jobscience Team Edition
• Premier Phone Support for the first 90 days
