WINSTON-Urban Outfitters, a specialty retailer and wholesaler, will use recruiting management software from SilkRoad Technology as part of its hiring program.

SilkRoad’s OpenHire platform will be used to automate and streamline the hiring processes at Urban Outfitters’ various operations. The software will track and manage thousands of applications.

The software accepts and organizes incoming applications from multiple sources, centralizes all recruiting in one system, screens applicants by preset criteria, and also eliminating costs normally associated with importing resumes into a database among other features.

“To provide the compelling and distinctive retail experience consumers have come to expect from our Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People brands, we must continue to bring in creative employees who are dedicated to outstanding performance,” Renee Hollinger, Director of Human Resources at Urban Outfitters, said in a statement. “A powerful HR solution like OpenHire can help our staff focus on what it does best – attract top-quality talent.”
