Automatic Skill Checking

iclue automates the skill checking process via an easy to use, mobile-first, fully reportable, cloud-based platform. iclue addresses one of the biggest pain points in the technical recruitment industry - the way skills are checked. Traditionally this has been a very manual, gut-based process, driven by the recruiter.

Iclue allowed Potentia to find the diamonds in the rough and had success in the following areas:

  • Four additional placements made.
  • One rockstar identified who was placed instantly.
  • Automated/hands off approach.

Recruit IT (Auckland, NZ)

In response to the IT skill shortage, in 2015 Recruit IT - a leading New Zealand based IT recruitment consultancy had a requirement from a major client to build a rock solid team of Filipino software testers that would eventually be offered immigration visas to live and work in New Zealand. Recruit IT found the process simple and technically screened hundreds of potential testers who were up for the challenge. The process was so successful that Recruit IT has repeated this process in 2016. Highlights were as follows:

  • Built a team of highly competent off shore testers.
  • Saved time by only interviewing the best.
  • Discovered people with strong technical ability that wouldn't have been uncovered from their CV alone.
