Too often, recruiting for high-turnover hourly retail positions is paper- intensive and time-consuming. Unicru makes the recruitment process simpler, more effective and even profitable for retailers ­ including Toys"R"Us, Blockbuster Video, Target, GNC and Kmart. Unicru's solutions are delivered via in-store kiosks, back-office processing of an employer's online hiring system and a Web site.

To help companies hire smarter and uncover hidden strategic advantages, Unicru enables customers to see more intuitively into the data they gather. For example, Unicru helps employers target potential tax credits achieved by hiring workers from disadvantaged areas. Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) and Welfare To Work Credits (WTW) are federal programs assisting underprivileged individuals to find work and build careers. While it's estimated that eight percent of walk-in hires may be eligible, this "automatic" cost reduction is often overlooked by companies using paper application processes. However, with Unicru's interactive WOTC calculator, employers can pinpoint eligible areas and target recruitment efforts. Thanks to its advanced intelligence and analysis-reporting platform, Unicru can save an employer several thousand dollars per eligible hire. Some companies realize more than $3 to $4 million per year in tax credits.
