CHAPIN, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Background screening provider GIS has partnered with talent management software provider PageUp to offer a seamless and simple hiring process that allows mutual clients to build a better workforce.

The partnership combines GIS’ NAPBS-accredited employment background screening services, which enable clients to make the best possible hiring decisions, with PageUp’s award-winning Unified Talent Management Software, which empowers clients to build a high-performance workforce and to develop great leaders. Used together, the solutions allow clients to create their ideal screening and hiring solution, and ultimately their ideal staff.

Though – or perhaps because – GIS and PageUp each have a strong client base across industries and geographies, they each independently identified a strong need for an integrated solution customized specifically for the U.S. higher education industry. According to Nate Gabelman, GIS’ Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships & Business Alliances, this, and the mutual respect between the two companies, was the driving factor behind the strategic alliance.

Gabelman said “At both PageUp and GIS, our focus is our clients. Because our business ideals are so closely aligned, and because of an increasingly obvious need for a solution that could benefit our clients, we made this partnership a top priority. We’re excited to be able to introduce PageUp to our clients as a trusted partner.”

Rob Hill, Senior Vice President North America at PageUp agreed, noting that the real-time integration will open doors for the partners and for their clients. “The seamless user experience the partnership now supports is a game changer for our clients and also for the talent they are looking to attract,” he said. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer the industry leading services of GIS to our clients as they take their HCM practices to the next level.”
