Improving the Candidate Experience
Survale unveiled its new candidate satisfaction and career-site optimization platform, designed to allow employers to gather feedback and traffic analytics to help them serve candidates better.
The Survale Candidate Satisfaction platform is designed to engage candidates by asking them for feedback on the company and their hiring process in real time.
The platform is designed to combine that qualitative data with career-site traffic analytics to show recruiters exactly where they lose candidates in the hiring process, and the resulting metrics are shown to users in a simple dashboard and are benchmarked across the client base so recruiters can see how their results stack up.
The platform is delivered as a SaaS solution.

Corporate Giving Platform
Snoball Inc. released a new version of its online platform, Snoball.com, designed to allow socially responsible businesses to engage their employees, customers and stakeholders in charitable giving.
Utilizing a SaaS delivery model, users can create personalized parameters for donations to nearly 2 million IRS-approved charities and nonprofits included in the platform's database. The parameters are known as snoballs -- specific conditions or events that trigger a charitable gift and are often tied to an individual's social interests and passions -- for example, "Every time we exceed quarterly sales targets, I will donate $25 to the United Way."
The platform is designed to integrate data and metrics tied to key performance indicators from business tools such as Salesforce.com and Yammer. It is also designed with configurable dashboards to provide detailed reporting and analysis across a number of user-defined variables, including city, office, department, function, manager, etc.
