CVlizer - Resume / CV parser for automated processing of application documents

The Multilingual CV & Resume Parser For
Management of Documents Used in Job Applications

 

CVlizer, an integral part of JoinVision’s semantic software suite, is a fully automated, customizable, multilingual CV and resume parser. This tool enables CVs, resumes, and all other types of documents that are used in job applications to be analyzed using a series of semantic criteria. All relevant information is extracted and then immediately converted into a well-structured, enriched candidate profile, conveniently made available in XML format.

CVlizer doesn’t just extract the candidate’s so-called “basic” information, such as one’s name, address, and date of birth, but it also extracts elements such as education, specialized skills, relevant work experience, and photos. The resulting XML profile can easily be imported and made searchable using any type of application management software.

Using CVlizer, manual data entry tasks become obsolete. CVlizer’s abilities make the creation of searchable, high-quality talent or candidate pools look like a piece of cake.

CVlizer also gives the applicant a more attractive application process, without the need for tedious, manual data entry. Given this fact, terms like “candidate experience,” “one-click application,” and “employer branding” become more than just empty catch phrases. Integrating CVlizer into the application process, be it on a job portal, a career website, or within your own back office, liberates all involved parties from the daily grind of recruiting, making it more attractive while also increasing your rate of success.

Depending on the actual service package, our CV and resume parser can be enhanced by a variety of modules: HRclassifier, HRcapture and HRmerger. The latter module, HRmerger, allows you to enrich the data created by the CV and resume parser with information extracted from all the additional documents included in the job application.

Functionality

  • Cvlizer

    Application

    Only in rare cases will applications consist solely of the obligatory CV or resume. The majority of job applications include additional documents such as a cover letter, a certificate, letters of recommendation, etc. These are often received via email and in compressed ZIP-files, which may have several different documents embedded in one file and which may contain scanned pages that are not machine readable.

  • Cvlizer

    HRclassifier

    This module enables entire email accounts and entire application portfolios to be extracted, processed, converted into a machine readable PDF document using OCR (if necessary), and finally classified.

  • Cvlizer

    Documents used in job application

    Each individual document is now available to you in an easily understandable and well-structured format. The CV or resume can then be processed using CVlizer, while all the additional documents will be made available for further processing as machine readable PDF documents.

  • Cvlizer

    CVlizer

    The core component of our modular software suite! This unique CV parser processes any kind of CV or resume, regardless of its file format or layout, using complex semantic extraction algorithms. It extracts all relevant information and provides the data as a standardized XML file for further processing and storage. CVlizer recognizes more than 30 different languages and provides additional visual and statistical breakdowns.

  • Cvlizer

    HRcapture

    This module provides a sophisticated visual verification tool for CV and resume parsing, enabling validation, correction, and addition of extracted information. It is available as a browser-based iFrame solution. It offers an intuitive interface which optimizes processing speed by displaying the original CV or resume, including all layout information (fonts, colors, tables, images, etc.), on one side of a split screen and fully customizable form fields on the other side, with the extracted data visually linked to its origin within the document.

  • Cvlizer

    Structured record - XML

    Irrespective of whether the HRcapture module is used, at the end of the parsing process, an XML file will be made available for further processing within the customer’s existing applications.

  • Cvlizer

    Customer application

    CVlizer and all of its additional modules are accessed via standardized web service interfaces (SOAP) as "software as a service" (SaaS). They can easily be integrated into any type of existing application management system, online job platform, e-recruiting system, CRM application, etc.

  • Cvlizer

    HRmerger

    Used in conjunction with CVlizer, JoinVision’s premier CV and resume parser, the HRmerger module provides parsing and semantic analysis of all kinds of documents used in job applications. An applicant’s relevant work and training history, as defined by the structure of the applicant’s CV or resume, is enriched using information that is extracted from the applicant’s additional documents, such as transcripts, letters of recommendation, cover letters, etc.
