WAYNE, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/28/09 -- Industry researchers agree that the proliferation of mobile devices around the globe has resulted in significant productivity increases -- up to 15% -- for organizations of all sizes. Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, is further optimizing these gains by announcing its enhanced support for mobile offerings such as the iPhone, Smartphone, BlackBerry, etc. This functionality will enable Kenexa users to access its solutions from mobile devices, anywhere, anytime. With Kenexa's collaborative capabilities, corporate recruiters and hiring managers can use their mobile devices to contact job seekers and schedule interviews. Job candidates can apply for a job opening with just a few clicks on their mobile devices.
Upcoming hiring company-side features consist of mobile contact management, including the capability to review candidate and contact candidates with a click; the ability to advance candidates through the application workflow and provide increased visibility to candidates in real-time; approval of requisitions using mobile devices; and the means to view "unified talent records" -- for internal and external candidates -- on the go. Upcoming candidate-side features include the ability to view available positions at a company's career site; apply to jobs and submit cover letters with a click; and access other relevant candidate features from any location.
