Zapoint Launches Enhanced Talent Profile

June 2, 2010. Cambridge, MA. Earlier today Zapoint, the industry leader in career management software solutions, unveiled the latest version of their Talent Profile. Zapoint’s talent profile combines social based software with rich career planning, reporting and analytics helping improve employee engagement while providing employers with greater visibility into their talent pool.

At the heart of Zapoint’s career management software platform lies their online talent profile. Unlike most talent management systems that provide employee profiles as extensions to their portfolios, Zapoint profiles are the primary foundation for their entire solution. “The biggest complaint we hear over and over with regards to talent management software packages is the poor quality and accessibility of employee data,” says Founder and CEO of Zapoint, Chris Twyman. “Zapoint addresses this from day one. Our solution is completely profile-driven and engages employees with robust profiles and career management tools to help them showcase their true value and expertise, while providing employers role based access to employee data and analytics they would otherwise not see.”

Zapoint online talent profiles are self-service and role based. Designed to deploy quickly within a company, they create a corporate social network for employees to showcase their background, skills and experience, share knowledge, and build connections with others inside the organization. The profiles create a valuable repository of employee information that can be viewed by others to compare employees for new roles, analyze and identify potential skill gaps and future learning needs.

As employees’ talent profiles are added to the system, dynamic relationships are created within the network between skills, knowledge and content, generating invaluable statistics for both employees and HR. For example, users interested in developing a particular skill can easily be connected to both employees and content resources that can help them achieve it.

Zapoint’s talent profiles are also helping employers more effectively tap into their talent pool and their collective knowledge for making better and more timely talent decisions.

Zapoint will be hosting a webinar on June 8th at 1pm (EST) for anyone that would like to learn more about their revolutionary talent profile technology. To register for this event, please click the url below.
