WCC Announces: Adecco’s E-Match Portal Powered by ELISE Successfully Launched
Utrecht, The Netherlands, October 14, 2010 – WCC Smart Search & Match, the leading provider of high-performance search and match software, today announced the deployment of its market leading ELISE software in Adecco’s E-Match portal. The recently launched portal consolidates and modernizes the internal systems used by Adecco consultants in helping fill job vacancies.

Adecco Nederland, after acquiring recruiting company DNC, needed to provide a modern tool to their consultants that would help them find the best matching position for a job seeker across multiple databases. Using the power and flexibility of WCC’s ELISE software, the web-based E-Match portal enables fast searches in both the DNC and Adecco databases, as well as directly in text of candidate’s CVs - all consolidated within ELISE.

The new system includes Search Agents to automate the process by alerting Adecco consultants to matches in real time as new candidates are registered. It also includes SMS notifications so consultants can be notified of matches directly via text messages. In addition, the new system uses ELISE analytics to facilitate continual system improvements.

“WCC has done together with our ICT team a great job in upgrading our existing application to an innovative portal that enhances both the experience and the productivity of our consultants,” said Bernard Ypersiel , CIO Benelux, Adecco Group, “We are excited to see the newest technology features in action at all our branch offices and to provide the best services to our customers and our temping workers”

According to Peter Went, CEO of WCC Smart Search and Match, “The key to an efficient placement process at large organizations like Adecco is to optimize the effectiveness of their consultants. The E-Match application makes it a snap for consultants to stay on top of the job fulfillment process.”
