DaXtra Technologies Inc. increases its market reach through powerful industry partnership with Akken.


April 2013: DaXtra Technologies Inc , the resume parsing and search software provider, has partnered with staffing and recruiting efficiency specialist, Akken , to provide an integrated, contextualised search capability to the US market. Recruitment agencies will benefit from an enhanced applicant tracking system (ATS), which uses state-of-the-art single point of entry search technology to produce the most relevant candidate results.

Akken is a staffing efficiency improvement specialist that has helped hundreds of staffing and recruiting companies improve their efficiency, placing more candidates into quality paying positions and increases customer retention.

As a result of the partnership, Akken clients will be able to use the DaXtra Search technology to quickly and accurately search not only their own candidate databases, but also external databases, such as job boards, in one single entry. The contextual search capability enables recruiters to view the most relevant candidates instantly, saving time to identify the most suitable candidate for a position.

Steve Finch, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at DaXtra Technologies Inc., comments , “The ability to search and capture candidate information is arguably one of the most important recruitment functionalities and the new partnership will enhance our offering to the applicant tracking system market. By opting for an all-encompassing solution recruiters can benefit from contextualised searching whilst reducing administrativ e overheads.”

Akken has previously been using DaXtra’s Resume parsing technology – DaXtra Parser – to automatically extract information from Resumes and enter it into the Akken platform. The technology assigns the data into pre-determined categories and ranks the data by logic and relevance, resulting in the most accurate matches within seconds.

Giridhar Akkineni, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Akken, describes, “With our ongoing growth targets we are looking to expand our offering to our current and prospective customer portfolio. To us, customer satisfaction is crucial and DaXtra shares those working values making the new proposition all the more exciting.”
