March 26, 2010 – Oceanside, CA – Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS) recently completed installation of SmartSearch, a Web-based talent acquisition and recruiting solution, to serve the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the world‟s natural resources and ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all people.

Formed in 1970, NRDC has office in New York City, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago in the United States, and in Beijing, China.

After a conducting a thorough product evaluation process to identify suitable vendors to replace its existing applicant tracking system, NRDC selected SmartSearch to meet its requirements for group data segregation and desired “self service” functionality for hiring managers on the built-in, branded web-portal. Fast implementation time, flexibility and experience working with global non-profit organizations also made SmartSearch a smart choice to support NRDC‟s unique hiring process and applicant tracking workflow.

Our system also makes it easy for NRDC to control and manipulate features and functionality as its needs continue to evolve,” said Doug Coull, CEO of APS. “We are particularly proud to add NRDC to our client roster since a number of our employees are committed to „going green‟ and have contributed to its mission to curb the effects of climate change, stem the tide of toxic chemicals, and create a clean energy future.”
