“This is a huge step forward for the teams at Comrise and RightFit. We’ve been working extremely hard on building this algorithm for close to a year now – and this is a huge win for us as we prepare to go to market,” says Rob Bigini, VP of Global Operations for Comrise. “We truly believe this algorithm can have a strong impact on improving key metrics for recruiters and talent acquisition professionals, such as time-to-hire and cost-to-hire.”
