AvatarFleet and HireRight team up to improve hiring quality and driver retention for the transportation industry. Press Release
AvatarFleet has a new strategic relationship to integrate HireRight’s background check solutions with AvatarFleet’s ApplicantCare, a leading cloud-hosted applicant tracking system (ATS) for the transportation industry.
The ApplicantCare / Hireright integration simplifies the hiring of quality candidates, including drivers. With HireRight’s suite of on-demand background and screening solutions, recruiters can move quickly through the hiring process with everything at their fingertips. ApplicantCare also aids selection with driver-specific assessments that predict success on the job, the key to making better-informed hiring decisions. Its features enable recruiters to spend little or no time with unqualified applicants, one of the biggest time wasters of traditional systems. Recruitment and retention of safe and qualified drivers is an ongoing challenge for motor carriers.
The new integrated solution from AvatarFleet and HireRight can enable transportation companies to speed up and streamline the hiring process to ensure that the best drivers are hired. This can help increase retention, reduce turnover and improve compliance and safety.
“Carriers spend large amounts of time checking the backgrounds of driver applicants. We chose HireRight because our customers get everything they need in one place to improve their recruiting, employment screening and hiring processes,” explained Mark G. Gardner, CEO, AvatarFleet. “We’re committed to helping our customers hire the most qualified drivers, improve safety, increase retention and lower turnover. HireRight shares that commitment and we’re pleased to partner with them to help our customers meet these goals.”
“The latest upgrade to AvatarFleet ApplicantCare is remarkable. The seamless and nearly instantaneous integration with HireRight for background checks is saving countless hours for our recruiting staff,” said Jeremy Rayl, CEO, J Rayl Transport, Inc. “Best of all, we’re able to more quickly process applicants and get them on board.”
“We process about 80 applications per month and that number is growing. Five minutes saved per application adds up quickly and the integration reduces the chance for human error in rekeying,” added Matt Selby, Director of Safety and General Counsel, J Rayl Transport, Inc. “
AvatarFleet addresses driver turnover by bringing a relevant new tool that enables carriers to hire the right people for driving jobs,” said Steven Spencer, Vice President of Transportation Solutions, HireRight. “AvatarFleet’s customers can improve retention, reduce risk and enhance their corporate culture. We are excited to team up with them to launch an integrated background screening solution for the AvatarFleet platform.”
