IDC Innovators reports present a set of vendors that offer an innovative new technology, a groundbreaking approach to an existing issue, and/or an interesting new business model.

“Brilent is among one of the few organizations successfully bringing artificial intelligence to talent acquisition in an area it needs it most: candidate prospecting. While Brilent’s technology is advanced, their solution is both simple and powerful – resulting in significant impact to advertising and sourcing ROI,” the report’s author, Kyle Lagunas, said. “Brilent’s transparency and simplicity goes a long way to alleviating concerns about the viability of AI solutions in recruiting, and helps recruiters become more comfortable trusting the insights AI tools are about to quickly generate and deliver.”

Concise and accurate insights about candidates are critical as companies place increasing demand on recruiters to find and hire the best talent. Large staffing and recruiting departments face the challenge of having massive candidate databases, and limited methods for keeping their data clean, updated and searchable. Brilent consolidates their data, and keeps their candidate data updated automatically. The best candidates are then surfaced immediately with every new role.

Brilent becomes the first place recruiters look when new jobs open. Just ask Tony Le, Sr. Director of Global HR Operations & Talent for IAC Publishing. “Brilent has significantly slashed the time for searching and screening candidates. Instead of taking a week or more to get candidates to hiring managers, it’s now often days,” said Le in a recent interview with SHRM, the leading independent professional association for human resources.

“The battle for talent will continue to intensify but manual search and review of candidates can only take you so far,” said Garry Ma, CEO of Brilent. “We believe that AI and big data are powerful tools to help organizations hire better and faster. Our mission is clear: make hiring the right people simple and painless. We have come far but have much more to accomplish. We are honored to be recognized by IDC as an IDC Innovator in Talent Discovery.”
