TextRecruit has announced a strategic partnership with SmartRecruiters that will enable talent acquisition teams to communicate with candidates via text message directly from their SmartRecruiters account.
“Our partnership with TextRecruit is part of our commitment to making recruiting easy, and today that’s impossible without mobile,” said Jerome Ternynck, Founder and CEO of SmartRecruiters, “TextRecruit’s platform will help our customers leverage text messaging to have more efficient conversations with candidates and get the talent they need to succeed.”
As a result of this partnership, SmartRecruiters will feature TextRecruit in the SmartRecruiters Marketplace. TextRecruit will be accessible within SmartRecruiters to help recruiters:
- Improve candidate communication by achieving 34% response rates, 99% open rates and average response times of 12 minutes (email response rates average 2.24% according to MailChimp);
- Personalize and automate text messages to assist in sourcing, recruiting, interview management, campus recruiting and employee onboarding; and
- Ensure compliance by restricting messaging to candidates who have opted-out from receiving text communications.
“9 out of 10 job seekers are using mobile devices in their job search, but businesses are still struggling to use mobile to their advantage,” said Erik Kostelnik, Co-Founder and CEO of TextRecruit, “We want to disrupt traditional candidate communication and help recruiters cut through the noise of email and phone calls to make better hires, in less time.”
