Zapoint’s founding team recognized that recruiting and talent development can often be a very inefficient process - there are people looking for opportunities to progress their careers and there are opportunities, with specific criteria, but matching the two is often very subjective and sometimes great matches are missed altogether.
If there was a way to more objectively rank, search and match people’s skills and experiences with the requirements for a role, wouldn’t that make life a whole lot easier? That’s what we thought!
So at its conception, Zapoint developed a achievement-scoring algorithm, and patented ‘LifeChart’ that helped to analyze and graphically display an individual’s experience, and aggregate this data for departments and companies to help organizations develop skills inventories and gain instant insight into the strengths and gaps that exist within their workforce.
Over time this has evolved further to incorporate forward-looking features, enabling individuals to create career paths and companies to create succession plans, all based around dynamic and current profiles and data.
