8vance Matching Technologies, the Dutch-German AI software company behind Jobliebe.nl and others, acquires the Hengelo company Gini-Recruit. As a result of this takeover, Gini CEO Bob van den Berg joins the management team of 8vance. Gini-Recruit is a leading provider of user-friendly software for recruitment marketing, application tracking and talent coaching. 8vance has developed a smart AI match technology which, on the basis of skills, competencies, experience and personality, autonomously (i.e. completely independently) assesses the extent to which people will fit in with vacancies, projects or, for example, job matrices.
In a tight labour market which is constantly changing, it is important for UWV to quickly anticipate new developments. The traditional matching of supply and demand based on education and work experience no longer suffices. UWV is partnering with work-tech company 8vance to improve its services to jobseekers and employers. By switching to 8vance’s intelligent matching technology, UWV will be able to guide more people to the right job.

Last weekend, 8vance teams from the Netherlands, Germany and Romania met in Cluj-Napoca. A great end-of-year meeting to celebrate, get to know each other and make plans. The ideal opportunity to put employees in the spotlights.
On 23 January, the initiators of the Workforce Matching Platform presented their project to Rob Jetten, Minister for Climate and Energy. The platform uses AI matching technology to match candidates with technical employers based on skills and competences. The technology objectively suggests the best fit for each vacancy. It also allows for flexible working on projects and jobs. The initiative is in line with the plans of cooperating technical industry sectors to recruit more technicians.

8vance is market leader in skills-based matching software for organisations and recruitment agencies. Through statistical analysis of 80 million profiles and 25 million vacancies, they can attribute appropriate skills to each candidate. Likewise, for each vacancy the skills are ‘calculated’. Consequently, the software sees infinitely more matches than the human brain and offers recruiters unprecedented opportunities to find the best match between vacancies and candidates. How are current users taking advantage of these capabilities? We asked three customers: Cesar, Lloyd and Sander.
Amy Oerlemans is commercial director of Kloet Maintenance in Vlaardingen. She and her brother are the fourth generation in the 100-year-old family business. A few years ago, Amy suddenly received a phone call that fundamentally changed the way she perceives her employees. The daughter of one of her employees, Mr Da Silva, called asking her to fire her father because he could no longer keep up his work. Mr Da Silva was a crucial employee for Amy: “There was Da Silva on our facade, so to speak, instead of Kloet. Having to fire this iconic employee would really be a slap in our face.”
