Recruitment Boost chooses Affinda to increase Resume Parsing accuracy

Recruitment Boost’s previous resume parsing provider's accuracy was causing some issues in their downstream candidate matching processes, and the pricing model they had didn't account for seasonal fluctuations in resume volume.

They wanted a Resume Parsing solution that had high accuracy, integrated seamlessly with their platform, and had a fit-for-purpose pricing model.

  • >150k resumes processed each year

  • Highly accurate data extraction to power better candidate matching

  • Flexible usage-based pricing model to accommodate varying demand

Frequently asked questions:

What is resume parsing?

In a nutshell, it is a technology used to extract information from a resume or a CV.

Modern resume parsers leverage multiple AI neural networks and data science techniques to extract structured data. Typical fields being extracted relate to a candidate’s personal details, work experience, education, skills and more, to automatically create a detailed candidate profile. The extracted data can be used for a range of applications from simply populating a candidate in a CRM, to candidate screening, to full database search. These tools can be integrated into a software or platform, to provide near real time automation. Get started here.

What are the primary use cases for using a resume parser?

1.Automatically completing candidate profiles

Automatically populate candidate profiles, without needing to manually enter information

2.Candidate screening

Filter and screen candidates, based on the fields extracted. Sort candidates by years experience, skills, work history, highest level of education, and more. Extracted data can be used to create your very own job matching engine.

3.Database creation and search

Get more from your database. It is not uncommon for an organisation to have thousands, if not millions, of resumes in their database. Resume parsing can be used to create a structured candidate information, to transform your resume database into an easily searchable and high-value asset

Affinda serves a wide variety of teams: Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), Internal Recruitment Teams, HR Technology Platforms, Niche Staffing Services, and Job Boards – ranging from tiny startups all the way through to large Enterprises and Government Agencies.

What languages can Affinda's résumé parser process?

Affinda can process résumés in eleven languages— English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Polish, Indonesian, and Hindi.

What artificial intelligence technologies does Affinda use?

Good intelligent document processing – be it invoices or résumés – requires a combination of technologies and approaches.

Our solution uses deep transfer learning in combination with recent open source language models, to segment, section, identify, and extract relevant fields:

We use image-based object detection and proprietary algorithms developed over several years to segment and understand the document, to identify correct reading order, and ideal segmentation.
The structural information is then embedded in downstream sequence taggers which perform Named Entity Recognition (NER) to extract key fields.
Each document section is handled by a separate neural network.
Post-processing of fields to clean up location data, phone numbers and more.
Comprehensive skills matching using semantic matching and other data science techniques
To ensure optimal performance, all our models are trained on our database of thousands of English language resumes.

What kind of documents can I upload?

You can upload PDF, .doc and .docx files to our online tool and Resume Parser API.

Can I process scanned resumes?

Affinda has the capability to process scanned resumes. We use best-in-class intelligent OCR to convert scanned resumes into digital content. This is not currently available through our free resume parser. Please get in touch if you need a professional solution that includes OCR.

How secure is this solution for sensitive documents?

All uploaded information is stored in a secure location and encrypted. You can read all the details here.

What format is the output provided in?

Excel (.xls), JSON, and XML. JSON & XML are best if you are looking to integrate it into your own tracking system. Excel (.xls) output is perfect if you’re looking for a concise list of applicants and their details to store and come back to later for analysis or future recruitment.

What if I don’t see the field I want to extract?

We can build you your own parsing tool with custom fields, specific to your industry or the role you’re sourcing. Simply get in touch here!

How can I remove bias from my recruitment process?

Biases can influence interest in candidates based on gender, age, education, appearance, or nationality. Blind hiring involves removing candidate details that may be subject to bias. This allows you to objectively focus on the important stuff—like skills, experience, related projects. Affinda has the ability to customise output to remove bias, and even amend the resumes themselves, for a bias-free screening process. We use this process internally and it has led us to the fantastic and diverse team we have today! Please get in touch if this is of interest.

How many files can I upload at once?

To make sure all our users enjoy an optimal experience with our free online invoice data extractor, we’ve limited bulk uploads to 25 invoices at a time. However, if you’re interested in an automated solution with an unlimited volume limit, simply get in touch with one of our AI experts by clicking this link.

How long does it take to parse resumes?

Our Online App and CV Parser API will process documents in a matter of seconds. To keep you from waiting around for larger uploads, we email you your output when it’s ready. Don’t worry though, most of the time output is delivered to you within 10 minutes. If you’re looking for a faster, integrated solution, simply get in touch with one of our AI experts.
