HAZLET, N.J. (January 28, 2010) – iCIMS, the second-largest provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, today announced that the company has taken the first step towards a long term partnership with Savvis, Inc. (Nasdaq: SVVS), a leading international hosting provider of SAS 70 II certified data centers. This additional data center will strengthen iCIMS’ already robust international software offerings and reaffirms the SaaS provider’s commitment to offering superior talent management solutions to organizations across the globe.
Entering into a new era of responsiveness and efficiency, this partnership ensures that iCIMS will have the most robust infrastructure in place to support the evolving talent management needs of the company’s rapidly growing client base. Savvis currently operates 28 data centers globally, with more that 1.4 million square feet of high quality raised floor space designed to support enterprise IT operations. Record breaking growth throughout 2009 and strong momentum into 2010 were key drivers in iCIMS’ decision to take the preliminary steps to upgrade their international data center infrastructure. In 2009 alone, more than 225 leading organizations signed onto iCIMS’ Talent Platform, bringing the SaaS provider’s total customer base to more than 800 organizations worldwide. In addition to such superior candidate management offerings as applicant tracking, CRM, workforce planning and onboarding, iCIMS offers these organizations such robust employee management tools as performance management, talent & competency profiles, employee data management and more.
iCIMS has also seen impressive growth in the international marketplace, successfully expanding its international presence and emerging as the solution of choice for mid-market organizations around the world. iCIMS supports the international talent management initiatives of such industry leaders as Tyco Electronics (NYSE:TEL), APL, Optical Express, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and Defense Support Services, LLC. The iCIMS Talent Platform gives such organizations the ability to establish and promote global recruitment campaigns with multi-lingual Career Centers for candidates, and a fully searchable and reportable back-end database for end-users. Forecasts predict that iCIMS will continue to remain a strong international player as more and more mid-market organizations recognize the value of end-to-end talent management. iCIMS is taking the necessary steps towards opening up an additional data center with Savvis to support and encourage this continued growth worldwide.
With access to Savvis’ powerful new data centers around the world, iCIMS’ domestic and overseas clients will soon benefit from even faster platform access times and an increase in overall efficiency. Furthermore, Savvis will contribute to improved platform security for iCIMS’ more than 1 million users worldwide.
