iCIMS, the second-largest provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, today released the company’s record-breaking 2009 year-end summary and 2010 forecasts. Increased sales, international expansion, platform upgrades and most importantly, a recently unveiled employee data management software suite have already laid the foundation for iCIMS’ continued success throughout 2010.  Finishing off the year with this kind of momentum marks a decade of success for iCIMS, whose 963% organic growth over the past five years was recently recognized by Deloitte Technology Fast 500.

In 2009 alone, more than 225 leading organizations around the world signed onto iCIMS’ Talent Platform, bringing the company’s total customer base to over 800. Notable client additions include H&R Block (NYSE: HRB), GNC, Sysco Corporation (NYSE: SYY), Trump Entertainment Resorts, Tribune Company and many more. With more than 70% of client additions coming from the mid-market, this past year further strengthened iCIMS’ position as the leading talent acquisition solution provider for mid-market companies.  Industry leading mid-market additions include Treasure Island Las Vegas, NATCO (NYSE: NTG), Alexian Brothers Health System, YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago, The Visiting Nurse Association, and more. iCIMS’ ongoing pursuit of 100% customer satisfaction through its four-tiered support team directly contributed to the company’s mid-market dominance. The dedicated support teams coupled with user forums, weekly virtual training, and an interactive Knowledge Center continue to serve as one of iCIMS’ core differentiators.

iCIMS’ continued success in the mid-market is also greatly attributed to the Talent Platform’s single-source code architecture and inherent flexibility. This high degree of flexibility is greatly valued by mid-market organizations that are looking to invest in a Talent Platform that is capable of expanding to meet their evolving corporate vision. In addition to offering customers such superior candidate management offerings as applicant tracking, CRM, workforce planning and onboarding, the Talent Platform provides mid-market organizations with such robust employee management tools as performance management, talent & competency profiles, employee referral programs and more. 

Aside from the record breaking sales momentum powering the SaaS provider into 2010, iCIMS’ recently unveiled suite of employee data management software is taking the marketplace by storm. To more fully support the evolving HR needs of its growing mid-market client base, iCIMS now offers customers a complete suite of employee data management tools built right into the award winning talent platform. Beyond the management of demographic information and position history, iCIMS’ employee data management software enables human resource professionals to automate a myriad of once cumbersome, paper-intensive tasks.  These enhanced features coupled with iCIMS’ already advanced talent management offerings, enable the Talent Platform to support the end-to-end talent lifecycle of mid-market organizations around the world.

2009 also marked a year of international growth as iCIMS emerged as the solution of choice for mid-market organizations across the globe, including such notable organizations as Optical Express, BroadReach Healthcare, Cision and Ma’aden. In response to the mounting number of international organizations implementing the Talent Platform, iCIMS expanded its Beijing, China location and opened up the doors to its London, UK office. Looking ahead to 2010, forecasts predict that iCIMS will continue to remain a strong international player as more and more mid-market organizations recognize the value of end-to-end talent management.
 

“As an organization, iCIMS takes great pride in the many accomplishments we have achieved this past year,” said Colin Day, iCIMS’ President and CEO. ”During a time of increased industry consolidation, iCIMS’ record breaking organic growth throughout 2009 is a testament to the long-term value the Talent Platform offers organizations across the globe. With this current mid-market momentum and newly released employee data management suite, 2010 promises to be an extraordinary year for iCIMS.”
