Sigmar strikes deal for MatchMaker
1 April 2005 | 0
Sigmar, a Dublin-based startup recruitment firm, has gone live with a client and candidate management system for its Website.
Called MatchMaker, it correlates client requirements and candidate skills to a job order, producing a list of the most suitable candidates for a particular job.
MatchMaker is a TCP/IP network-based application that runs through a Web interface. The application was supplied by the Internet development firm NSP and is designed to run on the Oracle database engine. It stores up-to-date information on registered candidates whether the client organisation is a corporate entity or a recruitment agency.
‘We were engaged to develop the front end-the Website-and integrate this with the MatchMaker functionality,’ said Stephen Quinn, sales director of NSP. ‘We also integrated the product with various jobs boards-enabling easier capture and management of data. Overall, Sigmar is now able to streamline its internal processes and has the tools to monitor, plan, execute and grow their business plan.’
As part of the deal, NSP is also providing Sigmar with a managed support service. The company integrated a firewall into the system and provides real-time remote monitoring and support.
Sigmar Recruitment was established in March 2002 with a staff of 26 consultants; it is claimed to be the largest recruitment start-up in the Republic.
