More on Taleo and Vurv

Since everyone says the industry is consolidating, I thought I’d take a quick look at the score board.  Since Trovix started selling it’s first applicant tracking solution in 2005, the following companies have gotten bought or shut down: Vurv, Resumix, Brass Ring, Virtual Edge, Deploy, Unicru, Projectix, Hire.com, WetFeet.  And those are just the ones I could think of. Except for WetFeet, all of them were pretty substantial companies.   

Meanwhile, we’re continuing to grow, add features and add customers.  I think one thing that works to our advantage is that we have a search technology that other companies simply don’t have.  But also, we designed our interface based on the feedback of people that had already used first generation ATS platforms. (See list of those above.)  So we got to see what problems were tripping up users of other systems and and avoid building them.
