Australian-based HR Software-as-a-Service provider PageUp announced that it acquired Dublin-based recruitment marketing Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, Clinch.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
PageUp said the acquisition of Clinch expands PageUp’s recruitment software offering to include sophisticated proactive sourcing and other recruitment tools including: content management, automated recruitment marketing and enhanced candidate relationship management.
Founded in 2014, Clinch has built a suite of tools that aim to improve recruitment experiences for candidates, recruiters and specialist sourcers. Clinch states that it empowers customers to build and accelerate the recruitment funnel while delivering an ‘exceptional, personalised candidate experience and saving time through automation’.
The company also offers end-to-end recruitment analytics and insights so that sourcing strategies can be adjusted to deliver the best return on investment.
PageUp CEO, Mark Rice, commented, “It’s widely acknowledged that there’s a global skills shortage and how, when and why people change jobs is changing. The majority of people who took a new job last year weren’t searching for one, meaning that HR technology must evolve. Recruiters need sophisticated yet intuitive tools to find, build relationships with, and hire great people – from both outside and within their organisations.”
“Clinch’s solutions deliver a great candidate experience from that first touch, right through to application,” Rice said. “They dovetail perfectly with PageUp Recruitment and our entire PageUp Talent Management suite. Alongside their exceptional content management, automated recruitment marketing and enhanced candidate relationship management products, I’ve been very impressed with the Clinch team. We are delighted to welcome them to the PageUp family.”
Clinch CEO, Paddy Doyle, also commented, “Inclusion of the Clinch functionality within PageUp will enable customers to source and attract the best talent at speed. Both solutions have been designed to deliver a great experience for candidates and recruiters whilst automating tasks so HR teams can focus on candidates rather than administration. We look forward to seeing the power of the Clinch functionality harnessed within PageUp.”
