OutMatch Acquires Wepow, Expands Predictive Talent Analytics Tools to Humanize the Hiring Experience for Candidates

DALLAS — (Jan. 7, 2019) — OutMatch, the leader in predictive talent and culture analytics, announced today the acquisition of Wepow, a provider of video interviewing solutions that improve hiring outcomes. Adding Wepow’s technology further intensifies OutMatch’s platform of predictive talent solutions to identify and engage high-potential talent to drive business performance and profitability — positioning OutMatch as the clear market leader in talent solutions.

“With the added layer of video interviewing, we have the ability to humanize the hiring process in a way that’s never been done through a convergence of unparalleled data, AI and machine learning, IO science, and a more personal touch that matters to people seeking ideal jobs,” said Greg Moran, CEO of OutMatch.

Wepow technology makes interviewing productive, cost-effective, and more personal. The added capabilities also will strengthen companies’ ability to predict culture fit, employee performance, and career growth, while keeping top candidates engaged and moving forward in the selection process.

“The acquisition recognizes the importance of speed, engagement, and personal connection in today’s tight labor market,” Moran said. “Combining video interviewing with predictive analytics gives companies a competitive advantage, starting with early recruitment and ultimately helping them maximize the performance of their workforce.”

OutMatch has made a series of acquisitions in recent years, creating the rare ability to help companies hire and develop the right employees for the right positions — a talent acquisition platform with proven pre-hire assessments and data-driven insights that impact post-hire talent issues such as performance, learning, succession, and leadership development.

Founded in 2011, Wepow embraced the mission of helping companies engage with talent in new ways. Its rapid year-over-year growth has resulted in a global customer base that includes prestigious brands such as Adidas, Fox, Virgin Atlantic, and Walmart. Wepow’s video technology brings speed and scalability to the interview process, connecting candidates and companies regardless of location. As a result, companies regain time, reduce costs, and recruit effectively.

“Wepow and OutMatch are a perfect match,” said Imo Udom, co-founder and CEO of Wepow. “I appreciate the hard work and commitment of the Wepow team in helping our customers create engaging candidate experiences and make the right hires. As we continue to serve those clients and attract new ones, we are thrilled to become part of the OutMatch family, who shares our belief that every hire impacts business success.”

Wepow will maintain its offices and employees in Cupertino, Calif. It will continue to serve existing clients and work to attract new ones, while OutMatch and Wepow also pursue strategic opportunities to integrate the solutions each provides to customers.
