Scout Showcases Marketplace Recruiting at SAP SuccessFactors; SuccessConnect® 2017

New Data-Driven Way to Connect Premier Employers with the Best Search Firm Recruiters to Fill Jobs with Great Talent

BOSTON, MA, September 8, 2017—Scout Exchange, LLC, one of the most trusted platforms for marketplace recruiting, showcased its flagship Scout+ solution at SAP SuccessFactors’ annual SuccessConnect® conference at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

A proud member of the SAP® PartnerEdge® program, Scout’s platform is fully integrated with the SAP SuccessFactors® Recruiting solution to help customers streamline engagements with third-party recruiters and gain better visibility and control over search-firm usage within their existing workflows.

“Scout believes the best recruiting results are driven by data,” said Ken Lazarus, CEO of Scout. “By combing the power of marketplace recruiting with machine learning, we’ve proven that Scout delivers more high-quality candidates, up to 40% faster fill times, and up to 50% better fill rates, in addition to 30-40% lower placement fees.”

Beyond achieving better recruiting results, improved efficiency and lower costs, Scout’s platform is extremely easy to use. Because it’s pre-integrated with SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, there is no additional software or effort required to implement, allowing the system to begin working immediately following activation. Once a job is posted to the marketplace, the Scout platform instantly and automatically pulls the job specification and related job information from SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, and Scout’s Performance Matching algorithms recommend recruiters most qualified to fill the position based on their track records and specialty for that job type, geography, industry and other key parameters. The specialty recruiters then submit great candidates so employers can quickly hire the best!

Scout’s platform also features automatic real-time data syncing and candidate duplication detection to eliminate all redundant data entry, create one-to-many communication and maximize efficiency. Scout also employs one standardized contract and invoicing process for all users as well as centralized management of invoicing, collections and disbursement of funds. This standardization creates additional operational and marketplace efficiency by allowing different employers and search firm recruiters to conduct business easily and interchangeably, based only on fit and performance. Scout also eliminates the need to create separate contracts for each agreement and/or different processes for each relationship.

Employers using the Scout platform receive comprehensive reporting and analytics on recruiting activity and performance metrics. Scout Account Managers work with the Scout analytics team to create operational and strategic recommendations for improvements on a quarterly basis.

Scout’s cloud-based platform is extremely responsive and is supported by comprehensive world-class privacy, reliability and security through dedicated internal teams and external SOC 2 audits of all processes, systems and products.
