Life Suite Customers Have Industry’s Best Array of Talent Acquisition Options

CHICAGO, IL – October 19, 2015
– SilkRoad (, a global leader in cloud-based talent management solutions, announced a new partnership agreement with SmartRecruiters, one of the leaders in driving transformation across the talent acquisition marketplace. As a result, SilkRoad customers can choose from a broad range of options that support their talent acquisition strategies.

SmartRecruiters’ Talent Acquisition Platform transforms recruiting into an insight-driven process that empowers the hiring team to target, nurture and collaborate to hire better talent, faster and more cost effectively. SmartRecruiters is designed for organizations that want to tap all social channels and leverage the speed and flexibility of mobile technologies to create engaging experiences for candidates, hiring managers and HR teams.

Partnering with SmartRecruiters allows SilkRoad to offer this unique recruiting solution as an additional option for its customers, in addition to its own applicant tracking system (ATS).

“The talent management marketplace continues to evolve, and our customers can now choose the integrated talent acquisition solution that best meets their needs,” said John Shackleton, President and CEO, SilkRoad. “Combining SmartRecruiters with SilkRoad Onboarding and the overall Life Suite, is a powerful option that makes good sense for many of our customers.”

SilkRoad will market and sell SmartRecruiters’ Talent Acquisition Platform, now integrated with SilkRoad Onboarding, and SmartRecruiters will promote SilkRoad Onboarding to its customers. SilkRoad will also continue to invest in its own ATS, SilkRoad Recruiting (formerly known as OpenHire), which is ideal for customers with more traditional hiring requirements and a need to automate manual hiring processes.

As a result of this announcement, SilkRoad now offers the industry’s broadest spectrum of talent acquisition capabilities:

  • Transactional ATS – Attract, screen, track, comply and hire.
  • Recruitment Marketing – Brand, target, source, nurture and convert.
  • Collaboration – Go mobile, collaborate, engage, vet and assess.
  • Advanced Insights – Configure, integrate, scale, gain insights and realize ROI.
  • Onboarding – All options enable customers to Roll Out the RedCarpet ® via integration with the industry’s benchmark solution, SilkRoad Onboarding.

“We’re honored that the talent management experts at SilkRoad selected SmartRecruiters as the clear best-of-breed Talent Acquisition Platform for this important addition to their Life Suite,” said Jerome Ternynck, CEO, SmartRecruiters. “And we’re pleased to be offering SilkRoad Onboarding as a natural extension of our TA Platform.”
