"Hiring managers used to wait an entire week after a job posting closed to receive a packet of resumes before they could begin reviewing applicants," said Colin Keeler, director, Financial Systems, South Dakota Bureau of Finance and Management. "Infor Talent Management allows managers to view and sort resumes as soon as they're submitted online, which enables greater efficiency for the hiring process."
