Appcast, the market leader in programmatic recruitment advertising technology and services, announced that its programmatic job advertising technology, Xcelerate, has won a 2021 Gold Stevie Award in the “Human Capital Management Solution” category. Appcast acknowledged a leading business technology solution that streamlines human resources administration and talent acquisition when it received this award.

Appcast’s founder and CEO, Chris Forman, expressed his delight at receiving a Gold Stevie Award for Xcelerate from the International Business Awards. He further shared that the Appcast team is passionate about assisting significant firms in hiring outstanding people. Xcelerate is a critical tool for making that happen, especially at a time when talent is in such short supply.

Appcast Xcelerate is assisting employers in attracting suitable candidates and meeting hiring goals, including diversity and inclusion, as they navigate a challenging labor market. Xcelerate is a programmatic recruiting software that integrates seamlessly with employers’ applicant tracking systems (ATS). It uses job ad performance data and market and advanced algorithms to automatically select the best places to post jobs from a network of over 10,000 job sites.

Xcelerate’s programmatic restrictions keep firms from overspending on job listings and provide them the freedom to turn advertisements on and off as the market evolves and their hiring needs change. Furthermore, real-time dashboards provide expanded data analytics and visualizations, allowing businesses to track the performance of job ads and make all job ad purchasing decisions from a single platform.

Despite the difficulties, obstacles, and tragedies of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher explained that what they’ve seen in this year’s IBA nominees is that organizations around the world, in every industry, have continued to innovate and achieve. All of this year’s Stevie Award recipients should be commended for their perseverance and tenacity. They are excited to celebrate their accomplishments with them at their virtual awards presentation on December 8th.

The International Business Awards is the most prestigious business awards event in the world. Over 3,700 submissions were received from organizations in 63 countries and territories for consideration in various categories this year. The Stevie Award recipients are determined by the average scores of more than 260 executives from worldwide who took part in the judging process from June to early August 2021.
