SmartSearch Announces Updates to Web Portals for Enhanced UX

Candidate, Hiring Manager and Vendor Portals receive UI system enhancements with added mobile optimization.

 Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch™ recruiting business software, announces UI and UX improvements to the web portals for Candidate, Hiring Manager and Vendor Portals. All are enhanced with the user experience in mind and sport functionality designed for use on any computer or mobile device, including smartphones and tablets. In addition to all portals having a 100% responsive design, users can configure the interactive graphical reports and dashboard functionality to their desired settings.

According to APS, Inc., CTO, LJ Morris, “The Candidate Portal is newly designed to increase job seeker satisfaction by offering a cleaner, easy-to-navigate experience when searching and applying for jobs. These enhancements help our clients ensure a great user experience for their candidates. Additionally, candidates can quickly update resumes, cover letters and other documents to keep their profile current. Duplicate checking has been enhanced and the navigation streamlined with easy-to-use drop-down menus simplifying the user experience.” Candidates will continue to have the ability to download resumes and cover letters, along with other documents, from sources such as OneDrive, DropBox, LinkedIn, Indeed, Monster, and CareerBuilder.

The Hiring Manager Portal interface offers newly designed interactive graphs and tools for better organization like color coding records to indicate the age of the information and single-click functionality on the dashboard for faster access to desired data. This highly functional portal allows hiring managers to download resumes, approve timecards and jobs, review and add notes, request an interview, match candidates to other jobs, in addition to approving hours via email. The reporting function has, also, been updated with new report templates. The Hiring Manager Portal has a flexible, intuitive design, that provides quick links to short, instructional video tutorials called SmartSnippets, and accommodates both corporate users and staffing firms.

User access and navigation on the Vendor Portal dashboard has been enhanced with an easy-to-use interface to better engage their selected vendor partners.

All SmartSearch portals are designed to be mobile responsive and offer highly secured and encrypted data for recruiting in today’s modern workforce and ever-changing talent acquisition landscape.
