Eliyon and Monster Form Relationship to Provide Enhanced Candidate Resource for Recruiters
Solution To Offer Customers Single Source For Accessing Leading Active And Passive Candidate DatabasesCAMBRIDGE, Mass. & MAYNARD, Mass., Feb 10, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE)-- Eliyon Technologies today announced a strategic alliance with Monster(R), the leading global online careers property and flagship brand of TMP Worldwide (NASDAQ: TMPW), to package together their industry-leading recruiting databases for recruiters. Under the agreement, Monster will resell access to Eliyon's service, providing access to a comprehensive database of information on people in business in addition to Monster's database of qualified job seekers. The joint service will give recruiters the tools needed to find the most qualified prospective candidates at all levels, entry-level to executive, across all industries.
"This is a powerful combination: the leading careers site aligned with the leading database of people in business," said David Lord, an advisor to Fortune 500 companies on executive recruiting strategies (www.davidlord.com). "Monster offers a broad scope of job-seekers at all levels. Eliyon has everyone who's not looking for a job, but who is visible on the Internet, which takes in millions of senior executives. The alliance gives employers a comprehensive combined resource for identifying and recruiting top talent."
Eliyon has created the most comprehensive database of information on people in business. Fortune 1000 companies including Microsoft, AOL, Time Warner, IBM and Staples use it for recruiting, sales prospecting, competitive research and more. Eliyon gathers and 'reads' press releases, newspapers, and company websites, automatically creating profiles of executives from small-to-large companies. The database holds more than 12 million profiles, with 15,000 new entries added daily. Eliyon users quickly identify candidates meeting their needs through diverse search criteria including title, company/description, education and location.
"Eliyon does a recruiter's data collection grunt work by fabricating a 'Rolodex' from the Web," said Guy Creese, Research Director at Aberdeen Group. "The end result? Recruiters spend less time gathering names and more time vetting candidates. Because the Monster/Eliyon solution delivers an updated version of two time-tested recruiting tools -- paper resumes and a physical Rolodex -- it is an excellent example of how new technologies are delivering real business value while building on proven practices."
Initially, Monster will be the exclusive reseller of Eliyon in the online recruitment market. Eliyon will continue its direct sales efforts and provide training and support to all customers. The result is a seamless and comprehensive service targeted at an e-Recruiting market that Aberdeen Group estimates will grow to more than $4 billion in 2003.
"Monster has the industry-leading active candidate database, with tremendous reach in the world of recruitment," said Jonathan Stern, president and CEO of Eliyon. "Joining forces with Monster allows us to accelerate our penetration into staffing firms and mid-level companies."
"Eliyon's product gives recruiters another research tool to source and locate potential job candidates," said Steve Pogorzelski, president of Monster, North America. "The Eliyon database complements Monster's database of career-focused job seekers to provide recruiters and search firms with a full range of recruitment leads and prospective employees quickly and cost-effectively."
