Outmatch

Assessment tool for hiring, retaining and developing talent

About Outmatch

OutMatch is a recruitment solution designed to assist hiring managers with the hiring of talented people to the right job. By generating workforce analytics driven from a system of candidate assessments, the singular, cloud-based platform delivers the key insights predicting employee performance and guiding talent strategy. With OutMatch Assessment, hiring managers can engage candidates with a custom branded experience optimized for convenient completion on mobile platforms, choosing from hundreds of suggested job profiles to target the results. A resulting "Match Score" measures best fit, while a "Match Report" reveals key traits such as personality, numerical reasoning, logical reasoning etc. Interview guides then provide a structured format to suggested or customize questions with the facility to record answers into the system, gleaning deeper responses on cultural or organizational fit, competency and unique behavioral characteristics.

Reference checking logs candidates into the platform with little more than name and email address required, returning a completed check process within 24 hours. Presenting completion and results in real time, online completion is kept anonymous for invited reference contacts who can opt into the talent network with recruiters able to query the sourcing database to identify new talent. Onboarding assessments can similarly be used to aid the welcoming and training of new hires, setting action items for progression, while existing employees are encouraged to complete strategically aligned programs that support personal professional development. Dashboard-based analytics visualize key candidate metrics, summaries and histories with color-coded charts, enabling hirers to also align their assessment experience with access to at-a-glance industry benchmarks. Connectivity with existing applicant tracking systems is also guaranteed thanks to integration partnerships with a number of market leading third-party solutions. OutMatch Bridge allows predictive assessment analytics to be leveraged within ATS platforms including IBM Kenexa, iCIMS, Oracle Taleo & TBE, PeopleFluent, talentReef, SmartRecruiters, UltiPro and Workday.

    Customer service is exceptional. Our set up was super easy. Any time they have updated content or the system was going to be down for maintenance we are notified well in advance. OutMatch is a great assessment partner!

    Pros

    OutMatch is easy to use and comes with built in job capsules to make assessment set up simple and easy. The software integrates with our HRIS system and automatically sends an assessment to candidates when they apply. The software not only provides competency results, it provides insights on behavioral questions to ask the candidate, in addition to a development plan once hired to leverage their strengths and close the gaps on opportunities for improvement. If a candidate is not a great fit for the role they applied to, but there is another job we think they would succeed at, OutMatch has the ability to select another job and take the candidates scores from their original assessment and apply them to the competency assessment for another role.

    Thanks Sarah! So glad to hear we're a great assessment partner for you! That's exactly what we strive to be :) Also glad to hear that your set up and integration were simple and easy, and that you're enjoying the Interview, Development, and Job Matching guides within the candidate report. You say there's nothing you would change - which is great! If you ever have feature requests or enhancement ideas, please send our way. We love collaborating with customers.

    We have found outmatch to be accurate with hiring the quality of candidates that we need on our sales team.

    Pros

    We love how Outmatch generates questions based on candidates weaknesses. Just because a candidate scores low in an area, doesn't mean that they can't overcome their weaknesses, so outmatch gives them a chance to explain how they would do that.

    Cons

    I wish that we would get email notifications when a candidate completes the assessment.

    Response from OutMatch

    Thanks Amanda! I love to hear that our assessment is helping you hire top-quality candidates for your sales team. I'm also glad you're enjoying the behavioral interview questions and using it as a way to help candidates overcome their weak areas. If you'd like to get email notifications when a candidate completes the assessment, you absolutely can. It's a setting you can turn on for any job you'd like. Reach out to your company's admin, or your Customer Success Manager here at OutMatch - we're happy to help!

    My experience with Outmatch has been great. From the great team who has offered us support and guidance to the assessments themselves being aligned with our companies competencies is great. I truly feel that these assessments help guide and direct our hiring and are a huge part of our talent acquisition process.

    Pros

    We have been able to customize the assessment around the competencies we value as an organization. The assessments have helped streamline our recruiting process, by not only assessing candidates against our competencies, but then providing tangible data that the manager can review. The interview guide is great and has helped replace a portion of our in house interview guide.

    Cons

    I think the software is great. I don't know that I can offer any cons. I have had no issues using the software or reading the reports.

    Response from OutMatch

    Thanks, Jennifer! It's great to hear that our assessments are helping to guide your hiring and have become a huge part of your talent acquisition process. I'm glad we're able to assess your candidates and provide helpful data to your hiring managers. Customizing the assessment for clients is one of our favorite things to -- that's how we know it will be a perfect fit! Thanks for your kind words about our software and our team :)

    We are using Outmatch to better assist us during interviews and to help find qualified candidates and filter through candidates that are not the best fit. Overall, I love the ease of reading the results.

    Pros

    I love the visuals and the simplicity of reading the results of an assessment. The different categories and the way the results are categorized make it easy to analyze.

    Cons

    I have a hard time finding the correct job descriptions when going to add a new hiring profile or job. It could be because we are a pretty niche company with only mortgage specific and retail banking jobs, but I have a hard time finding the accurate job profiles that relate to the actual job we're hiring for.

    Response from OutMatch

    Thanks Natalie! I'm so glad our assessment is helping you find top-quality candidates and assist you during interviews. I'm also glad you find the results and dashboards easy to use. Sorry to hear about the difficulty in finding the jobs you're looking for. Our job library is meant to include all job types across industries, but for niche companies and roles, we can absolutely create something that's specific to you.
