The University of Alabama at Birmingham is implementing a new applicant tracking and talent management system – BrassRing – in late 2006 and early 2007.

The new software and processes will enable job candidates to complete online applications for positions throughout the university’s academic and health-care operations. Additionally, the software will provide an applicant tracking system that will support UAB’s compliance efforts.    Internally, a primary change will be the use of electronic communications for previously paper-based processes, said UAB Chief Human Resources Officer Cheryl Locke.

“The positive changes that will come with the new system will result in reduced costs and more efficient recruitment and hiring processes and help ensure that UAB remains an employer of choice for top-qualified candidates,” said Locke.

UAB is committed to creating a positive, supportive and diverse work environment in which faculty and staff can excel. “We believe implementation of the BrassRing technology and associated streamlined processes will help us in achieving these goals,” Locke said.

BrassRing LLC is a software and e-recruiting innovator and service provider headquartered in Massachusetts, with offices across the United States and in Europe.  BrassRing has earned a number of prestigious industry awards, including, in May of 2004, the “Best Human Resources Product or Service” in the Software and Information Industry Association’s Codie Awards competition.?
