iCIMS Streamlines Board Reporting from 4 Days to 4 Hours with Host Analytics

SaaS Talent-acquisition Leader Succeeds with Cloud-based Enterprise Performance Management

Redwood City, CA - Feb 12, 2014 - 

Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), today announced that iCIMS, a leading provider of innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, has compressed their monthly Board reporting process from 4 days to 4 hours with Host Analytics. Using the Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite, iCIMS has been able to move off of Excel spreadsheets to an integrated, secure, cloud-based platform for planning, close management, reporting, and analytics.

iCIMS is an Inc. 500 and Software Satisfaction honoree focused on solving corporate business issues through the implementation of easy-to-use, scalable solutions that are backed by award-winning customer service. iCIMS' Talent Platform, the industry's premier candidate management solution, enables organizations to manage their entire talent acquisition lifecycle from sourcing, to recruiting, to onboarding all within a single web-based application. With more than 2,000 clients worldwide, iCIMS is one of the largest and fastest-growing talent acquisition system providers with offices in North America, UK, and China.

Like many fast-growing companies, iCIMS eventually outgrew Microsoft Excel for managing key financial processes like planning, budgeting, and forecasting as well as financial consolidations and reporting. iCIMS recognized the opportunity to eliminate the data security risks and manual effort associated with Excel-based processes while leveraging automation to deliver accurate, actionable information to key business stakeholders. Moving to Host Analytics also gave iCIMS the opportunity to take advantage of dashboards and balanced scorecards to better understand and manage a dynamic, growing business in a competitive market.

The iCIMS implementation seamlessly integrates data from NetSuite, Google Analytics, and iCIMS’ own talent management applications. iCIMS also uses Host Analytics Financial Package Publisher, which can link together a range of source documents and corporate financial data seamlessly into a presentation-ready Microsoft PowerPoint or Word document. Automating Board package creation enabled the iCIMS team to compress the process from what previously took 4 days down to only 4 hours, freeing up key Finance personnel to spend more time on strategic analysis and value-added activities for the business.

“Host Analytics was exactly the right platform to support our fast-growing business,” said James Perry, Finance Manager at iCIMS. “Not only did we gain the agility and security of the Host Analytics Cloud Platform, we’ve significantly streamlined our reporting process and enabled Finance to partner more closely with the rest of iCIMS’ business.”

James Perry from iCIMS will be speaking at the upcoming Host Analytics Cloud EPM Roadshow in New York City on Wednesday, February 26th. For details and registration information, please visit http://www.hostanalytics.com/events-demos/events-calendar/2014-roadshow

“Fast-growing companies like iCIMS often have a unique approach to measuring and managing their business,” said Alison Holmlund, Vice President of Customers for Life at Host Analytics. “That’s why Host Analytics goes beyond traditional technical support to help customers configure the system to their specific business needs while leveraging best practices to get maximum value from their Host Analytics applications.”
