Zinc, a blockchain-based automated reference checking service provider, has announced integration with SmartRecruiters, an applicant tracking system provider.
The integration allows SmartRecruiters users to use Zinc for reference checking and track progress in the SmartRecruiters interface itself.
The benefits afforded by automating reference checking, including reduced effort for hiring managers and shorter time to hire overall, are further enhanced by Zinc's use of a blockchain-based backend to store the data. A blockchain-based approach allows candidates to have more control of the reference data obtained through the system. The data can thus be reused by the candidate later, which in turn streamlines the process for the reference providers themselves.
The use of blockchain is new in the human resource space, and the integration allows SmartRecruiters to capitalize on this differentiation. SmartRecruiters currently has a customer experience score of 6.6 on SoftwareReviews.
