Latest research from leading analyst John Sumser provides a definitive guide for buyers of intelligent tools in HR technology

BOSTON, MA – September 21, 2018 Scout Exchange, a platform for marketplace recruiting, has been featured for a second year in a row in the HRExaminer Index of Intelligent Technology in HR. Authored by renown industry analyst John Sumser, the report provides a definitive guide for buyers of intelligent tools in Human Resources (HR) technology. Including quantitative assessments of market size, penetration and viability, Sumser’s research presents a comprehensive overview on the state of ‘AI’ in the HR sector.

Specifically, Scout is recognized in the report for its unique ability to “combine crowd sourcing and vendor management into a single marketplace.” Positioned as a “clear, sensible disruption in the staffing market,” the report describes how Scout uses machine intelligence to “match search consultants, evaluate resumes and track performance nuances.”

“Scout tackles a critical recruiting problem in most large companies by providing a vendor management system that standardizes staffing contracts, builds accountability into the process, and increases the level of competition,” said John Sumser, principal analyst for HRExaminer. “The simple idea is that visibility, transparency, and accountability will create a better talent acquisition process with more predictable results.”

“This report is a must read for any talent acquisition leader seeking to navigate the rapid changes in HR technology, especially considering the profound impact AI is having on recruiting,” said Ken Lazarus, CEO of Scout Exchange. “Effective application of AI is a key reason our marketplace recruiting platform delivers great results for our employers and search providers, and it’s an honor to be validated by such a respected industry authority as John Sumser.”
