28 April 2010: StepStone Solutions, a global leader in Total Talent Management solutions, has introduced the latest version of its enterprise-level, SaaS-based e-recruitment solution, i-Grasp 3.0. The new version adds extensive enhancements and new functionality, with an emphasis on features prioritised by StepStone Solutions’ growing worldwide customer base. This includes additional capability in areas such as globalisation, usability and configurability, information reporting, candidate experience, and high volume recruitment. The i-GRasp 3.0 release, which has been deployed to customers through StepStone Solutions’s global hosting centres, also includes extensive new capabilities in the ‘Temps and Contractors’ module, plus deeper integration points with StepStone’s Performance Management and Succession Planning modules.

“Our SaaS deployment model means that our i-GRasp customers can receive the cost-saving and operational benefits of a major new product version on the day of release,” said StepStone Solutions Group Managing Director, Matthew Parker. “In creating i-GRasp 3.0 we incorporated many of the features that customers said were vital to them in terms of increasing recruiter productivity, reducing operating and IT costs through enhancing self-configuration capabilities, and providing a great candidate experience as they step up recruitment activity in the face of economic recovery.”

StepStone Talent Acquisition products are used by around 1,000 customers in 40 countries worldwide, including household names such as AstraZeneca, British Airways, PriceWaterHouseCoopers, and the European Central Bank.

Key new productivity and cost benefits delivered to customers in i-GRasp 3.0 include:

• New self-administration capabilities to allow users to further configure the system to their own requirements, for example defining translations in multi-lingual environments or adding fields to dynamic application forms. These capabilities can create quicker time to value, more flexibility, and less IT cost;
• Extensive new capabilities in the Temps and Contractors module, in areas such as, timesheet management, authorisation workflow, resource sharing and charge-out rates, designed to support current trends in workforce flexibility;
• Enhanced globalisation capabilities to simplify multi-country deployments and enhance the candidate experience, for example new supported languages such as Arabic;
• Extending timezone management functionality with the ability to assign timezones to candidates and positions, facilitating more productive workflow in managing international positions;
• Candidate and Position Management enhancements to support actions like candidate ranking, or adding additional documents to candidate and referee communications, improving HR productivity and the candidate experience;
• Numerous productivity-oriented improvements requested by customers, such as the ability to acquire information on internal candidates from other systems, and improved screen-to-screen navigation;
• Improvements to the productivity features for managing large recruitment projects, for example emailing large candidate volumes or setting up interview schedules in major assessment centres.

StepStone i-Grasp 3.0 is now in production for all users accessing the solution in StepStone Solutions’ global hosting centres in Europe, Asia and the US.
