(JANUARY 7, 2014) – Scout Exchange, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of Scout with Oracle Talent Management Cloud (Oracle Taleo Enterprise Cloud Service). Scout harnesses the power of performance based matching to sift through the vast marketplace of agency recruiters, connecting employers with the best-matched recruiters for filling their positions.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. Oracle Talent Management Cloud users can now submit job requisitions directly to Scout, where:

  • Scout will match their open positions with top specialty recruiters using its proprietary performance based matching.
  • Scout will invite the most qualified specialty recruiters to submit candidates directly to employers for consideration.
  • Employers can selectively view and accept only the most qualified candidates at the most competitive placement fees.

“Scout uses the power of performance data to forge smarter agency partnerships, so companies can stop wasting money on the wrong recruiters and start hiring,” said Ken Lazarus, CEO of Scout.

“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between Scout and Oracle Talent Management Cloud is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience.”

Scout is free to Oracle Taleo Enterprise Cloud Service customers and has no configuration cost. The integration can streamline the third-party recruitment process by helping to eliminate the need to negotiate multiple contracts. Relying on Oracle Talent Management Cloud, customers can expand their specialty recruiter networks quickly and easily.
