BirdDog Expands HCM Services with Travitor Partnership

DES MOINES, Iowa – November 7, 2013 – BirdDog, the leader in recruiting and applicant tracking solutions (ATS) for the construction and skilled trades industries, today announced that it has formed a partnership with Travitor. As a Learning Management Software provider, Travitor works with companies to create, deliver and track online and offline workforce training programs.

BirdDog and Travitor’s partnership will bring a stronger and integrated Human Capital Management (HCM) offering to clients of both companies. Organizations will be able to easily develop and provide reliable training and informational content to potential hires and existing employees, as well as centralize the tracking of training results and employee development progress. This partnership will also provide organizations with the ability to establish a full learning management solution to develop, motivate and retain more productive employees and potential employees.

“The hiring process is just the beginning for a new employee. To ensure your investment will benefit your organization quickly you must onboard new hires as soon as the position is accepted with the personalized training plans they need to succeed,” said Travis Paternostro, Founder and CEO at Travitor.

Integration between the two complementary services is planned to allow clients of both software systems to access data in one platform. Organizations will be able to track the recruitment process as well as the training plans for each new employee.

“Our focus for our customers is turning the ‘panic hire’ into a talent acquisition strategy. The right tools to develop that talent over the long-term are an essential extension of a successful strategy. Travitor’s software will help our clients create, deliver and track learning activities that help employees and organizations grow,” said Bryan May, EVP of Business Development at BirdDog.
