London, United Kingdom, 2010/10/11 - Actonomy, the Belgium based software provider of HRM search technology announced the release of its “Smart Search +” technology, the only concept based search technology powered by a semantic knowledge base.
Actonomy’s smart search technology is the first multilingual semantic search platform that understands the context and the meaning of the words one is searching for. Users are no longer faced with poor search results because words have a different meaning in a different context. As an example : while searching for ‘java software developer in London’ with Actonomy, the system will understand that ‘software developer’ is a function, ‘java’ is a competence or expertise and ‘london’ is a city name.
‘Our “Smart Search + “ will not only result in much better and relevant search results, says Filip De Geijter, CEO Actonomy, ‘but it will enrich the search query with additional relevant information. As an example : while searching for ‘charity fundraisers’, the system will automatically add relevant terms such as different fundraising mechanisms and other terms that are commonly used and relevant for charity. This extra information will enhance the search results and will provide you of more and better results even when you had not thought of adding these terms as search criteria.’
Smart search allows to create a total view on matching candidates and vacancies (and vice versa) based on functions, expertise, experience, work experience, education, location and recency of the information. Results are ranked based on relevance and a detailed view on why matches are found is available. The ranking is based on a newly developed scoring mechanism that differs fundamentally from existing scoring mechanisms that are used in standard search engines.
Actonomy xMP® “Smart Search +” is available as a toolkit for rapid integration in jobboards, recruitment service platforms and recruitment solutions used by staffing agencies or corporate customers. The technology has already been integrated by several of the Actonomy key customers such as Vacature.com/.
