The Ian Martin Group Acquires Fitzii, a Predictive Applicant Tracking System

In a market of applicant tracking systems that are often unloved by recruiters and jobseekers alike, Fitzii is known to be a user-friendly solution that takes the key pains out of hiring. Fitzii’s unique application process combines proven psychometric science with a qualifications and cultural fit assessment to better predict successful candidates and dramatically reduce resume-screening time.

The deal adds to the Ian Martin Group’s growing ability to help small and medium sized organizations improve their hiring effectiveness. In October of 2013 the company announced the launch of Hirefly, a shortlisting service that combines Fitzii software with hands-on recruiting support to make great hiring practices affordable and accessible for small businesses.

“The Ian Martin Group and Fitzii have the same goal – to better connect more people with meaningful work”, said Tim Masson, CEO at the Ian Martin Group. “Small and medium businesses employ more people than any other sector, and when we started using Fitzii to help them we quickly recognized that this technology was a major step in improving job to candidate matching.”
The Ian Martin Group intends to maintain Fitzii as a separate brand as well as explore further integration of the technology into its Hirefly and Ian Martin recruitment services.
“I am really excited to be bringing Fitzii in to the Ian Martin family,” said Ian Yates, Fitzii’s Managing Director. “It is a natural fit and we look forward to expanding the reach of our shortlisting science to help even more companies hire better”.
The acquisition has been completed. Financial details of the deal will not be disclosed.
