Colleague can now offer fully integrated functionality provided by DaXtra within its Colleague front and back office recruitment software package.

Daxtra’s sophisticated `Candidate Capture’ [In 2013 rebranded as daXtraCapture] product allows recruiters to automatically transfer data from candidates CVs, received via email or online, directly into their own databases. The DaXtra software effectively `reads’ the electronic document and moves the information within it to the correct place in the recruiters own candidate management system – a process known as `parsing’.

During this process the DaXtra software will automatically check for duplicate records within the existing database and update them rather than creating a second file for the same candidate. `Candidate Capture’ can be used to cleanse the entire database, eliminate duplicates, add missing information and unify all records.

The parsing process takes seconds and DaXtra claim to achieve human level accuracy with up to a 90% saving on data administration costs and an increase in CV handling capability. The Daxtra Candidate Capture system can also understand CVs presented in multiple different languages.

Stephen Blackmore, Business Development Manager of DaXtra said:We are very pleased with the work carried on both sides to allow DaXtra to now integrate seamlessly with Colleague. This latest partnership with Colleague allows us to add another leading vendor to the databases that DaXtra is fully compatible with. In these tougher times, we are offering the ability to remove administrative costs by automating a lot of the existing manual processes, the Colleague/DaXtra solution will allow recruiters to concentrate on recruiting rather than being glorified administrators.

DaXtra are the leaders in CV parsing and intelligent search and matching solutions. A spin out from the Artificial Intelligence Faculty at Edinburgh University they have over 350 clients globally.

Will Minns, Managing Director of Colleague, said: ``We’re delighted that Colleague’s leading recruitment software can now fully integrate with Daxtra’s functionality providing users with seemless access to this excellent recruitment tool. Recruitment companies aiming to stay at the top of their game are constantly looking for new ways in which technology can help them to be more efficient and Daxtra’s superb functionality gives measurable time saving benefits which can help recruitment companies reduce their administration costs.”
