There is a ton of data on the web.  Big data is all the talk and rage.  But most companies are trying to figure out what to do with it all?

Jon figured it out.  Why not utilize the tons of data available in online communities, along with all the social media data being pushed out, and build millions of profiles of potential candidates?

Entelo did just that building a massive database of over 300 million social profiles with professional interests information related to their professional life.  Utilizing their patent pending algorithm, Entelo searches “career change indicators” to find social indexing trends that indicate likeliness of a job change coming.  I was something to see in action!  The results actually tell the recruiters and hiring managers where the ripe apples are that need picking.

Entelo has a built in CRM solution which complements and works with your ATS system.  It has the ability to send the user active candidate alerts which result from their patent pending algorithm which looks at over 70 variables which point to upcoming career change likeliness.

The profiles come filled with key social insights from all the major channels.  A variety of communication channels are available in order to smooth candidates communications.  The end result to the recruiter or hiring manager is a more effective process with cleaner, complete profile data.

Taken a step further, this data can also tell how a company’s internal employee health is by measuring the output coming from within the organization.  This should lessen surprises in the turnover department.

We had a great time meeting with Jon Bischke, Founder of  Connect with him @jonbischke / @entelo
