Ubisoft Entertainment standardizes on SmartRecruiters for Hiring Success

SmartRecruiters Announces Major New Enterprise Customer

PARIS, FRANCE – HR Tech World (October 27, 2015) – SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company™, today welcomed Ubisoft Entertainment as its newest enterprise customer. Ubisoft, the billion-euro creator of multiple world-renowned gaming and entertainment brands, will source their global candidate pipeline, enable collaboration between recruiters and hiring managers, and streamline their global hiring processes on the SmartRecruiters Talent Acquisition Platform.

Sébastien Bourguignon, International HR Intelligence Manager for Ubisoft, commented “We require that a platform as wide-ranging, visible and sensitive as Talent Acquisition be totally modern in terms of openness, phone-friendliness, and social capabilities for both internal and external participants. Plus it must be extremely easy to integrate with our backbone HRIS. SmartRecruiters nails these requirements, making it an ideal addition to our HRIT architecture.”

Jerome Ternynck, Chief Executive of SmartRecruiters, commented “The SmartRecruiters team is thrilled to have a 10,000 person, talent-based titan like Ubisoft standardize on our platform for their hiring success. Their move is part of a broad generational shift away from old-fashioned ATSs like Brassring and Taleo towards next-generation Talent Acquisition Platforms like SmartRecruiters. As a Frenchman, I am also quite pleased to partner with a Paris-based multinational like Ubisoft.”

Four reasons underlie Ubisoft’s choice of SmartRecruiters to replace Brassring:

  1. It is a complete Talent Acquisition Platform, with everything needed from social sourcing to collaborative hiring.
  2. It delivers a consumer-class experience that people love using and that stimulates collaboration across hiring teams, especially on their phones.
  3. It is a true globalized solution that can be deployed across 19 countries and continue to scale with Ubisoft’s ongoing growth.
  4. It is an open platform, with RESTful APIs and the industry’s first Recruiting Marketplace, making it very easy to integrate with systems internal and external.
