DALLAS, TX – September 22, 2020 – Outmatch, a leading SaaS talent intelligence platform, today announced its acquisition of LaunchPad, an end-to-end recruitment automation platform. This acquisition creates a first-of-its-kind candidate-driven talent selection platform that marries automation and AI bringing efficiency and data to the hiring process.
“Combining LaunchPad’s state-of-the-art automation and AI technology with Outmatch’s data-driven assessment offerings will create a market-leading solution with global scale and enable companies to maximize the lifetime value of their employee base,” says Outmatch CEO, Greg Moran. “The Outmatch platform will allow candidates the opportunity to move at speed through the selection process with full transparency, while talent acquisitions teams can drive unprecedented 25x or greater ROI.”
As part of the acquisition, Outmatch is launching a new talent selection platform that ties candidate screening, assessments, video interview, and AI-driven predictive analytics into a single integrated, automated workflow platform. This will result in faster, more accurate hiring results that provide organizations with the clarity, insight, and speed needed to match the right candidate with the right job.
The new platform leverages the combined capabilities of Outmatch and LaunchPad to provide:
