Indianapolis (Rushville), Indiana – August 3, 2010 –Barada Associates, Indiana’s premier provider of employment screening and reference reports, announced today a partnership with ExactHire, an Indianapolis-based developer of applicant tracking software.

The two firms are also unveiling the integration of their web-based platforms that will enable Indiana businesses to gain access to their most essential pre-employment services – background screening and application tracking – from a single, online solution.

“We entered this agreement because the two processes are naturally linked based on when and where they occur in the hiring process,” explained William C. Barada, Vice President of Barada Associates. “We selected ExactHire for the partnership because we wanted to provide our clients with a complete, integrated solution from two best-of breed-providers.”

The solution has already been rolled out to several Indianapolis-area organizations that are benefiting from the effort:

“The integration between ExactHire and Barada has made the hiring process move faster,” said Susan Johnson, HR director of Conner Prairie. “By the time a hiring manager makes an offer they want the candidate to start yesterday, so the quick turnarounds on information are terrific.”

“As a mental health organization, our clients could very easily be taken advantage of, so it is very important that we get a thorough background screen that we can trust,” said Tina Baxter, payroll coordinator for Meridian Services Corporation. “It is nice that we can now go to just one site and get the answers and the information that we need.”

The new service is especially beneficial for HR managers in the Indianapolis area who have previously been unable to get the same combined services from any other provider.

“Background checks are a logical complement to our other applicant management and assessment services,” explained Harlan M. Schafir, Partner with ExactHire. “This new integration will allow us to expand the valuable services that we’re currently delivering to our customers and improve the overall efficiency of the hiring process.”
