WinHire wanted to build and implement a
shared collaborative hiring capability which would be able to address the challenges like identity fraud in the
recruitment process and also replace the early stage of faceless communication
with interactive video interview capability.
Capital expenditure on computing
infrastructure was not an option for WinHire, however IBM’s offering not only
helped the organization avoid the upfront capital expense of procuring
traditional computing infrastructure but also allowed them to build a scalable
environment to keep pace with the dynamic business growth.
Our business model is very unique as the potential of
social media in the recruiting process is not yet leveraged widely in the
recruitment industry. By helping us harness the transformational capabilities
of cloud computing, IBM has given us the technical superiority, security and
scalability and enabled us to take the recruitment industry to the next level,”
