Research Institution
Harmonia improves the effectiveness of U.S. Navy Recruiters by developing the concept of a Personal Assistant for Recruiting (PAR) on a mobile device. While a Recruiter can use a smart phone or tablet for their calendar, email, text messages, etc., there is no integration of that information with their daily workflow or Navy business systems. PAR will leapfrog the Recruiters current technology to state-of-the-art, and fully integrate with the social networking world, safely/securely using public wireless networks. The Recruiter starts the PAR app at the beginning of their work day and PAR instantly begins integrating multiple functions for the Recruiter: notification of ticklers (hot leads on contacts for the Recruiter to meet or events to attend), business intelligence that figures out how the Recruiters time can best be used by scanning the Recruiters daily calendar and correlating meetings with geospatial location to suggest driving routes and figure out which Recruiter is most easily able to travel to addresses of contacts in assigning ticklers, integrate with social media feeds including Facebook and Twitter to engage with potential contacts, provide electronic forms pre-populated with information already known about contacts, and more. PAR complements PMW 240s Applicant Relationship Management (ARM) System.
