To begin, AllyO uses job requirements from the iCIMS TA platform to engage candidates through career fairs, employee referrals, job ads, social media, talent pools and text and web messaging. After that, the platform facilitates conversations with candidates and adds their information into iCIMS’s ATS.

Using intelligent screening, AllyO then qualifies the candidates and supports interview scheduling and candidate selection. It also reports on applicant interaction and capture rates to help employers improve hiring decisions.

iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer Susan Vitale said the partnership with AllyO will provide a “powerful combination of speed and quality through automated, AI-powered sourcing and screening, backed with data to inform future decisions.”

Nick Possley, AllyO’s data products and engineering lead, said the integration will help customers improve their candidate engagement efforts by enabling faster responses when job seekers reach out. “Rather than filling out an application and waiting until someone responds, AllyO jumps in to engage candidates instantly,” he said.

Last month iCIMS acquired recruiting technology platform Jibe to power its new recruitment marketing solution, Attract, which is available as either part of the core iCIMS platform or as the front end of other, integrated ATS or HCM solutions. At the time Jibe CEO Joe Essenfeld said the companies complementary strengths and aligned missions, he said, which they could leverage into “an incredible opportunity to grow.

In May, AllyO completed an integration to speed Workday deployment for its customers and provide an end-to-end recruiting workflow. Just more than a month ago, the company closed a $45 million Series B round, bringing its total funding to some $64 million. AllyO said it woud use the money for product development, marketing efforts and adding to staff.
