TextRecruit has been featured as a top mobile enterprise app for HR and recruiting in Emergence Capital’s 2015 Mobile Enterprise Report and VentureBeat. Their report goes on to say that mobile enterprise is approaching a $100 billion market with startups focused on HR and recruiting having already raised $94 million in funding.
“When you’re talking about commerce or mobile apps for business, if you’re not approaching those markets with a mobile-first mentality, you’re not going to win,” said Emergence Capital general partner Kevin Spain in recent VentureBeat article.
Emergence’s report highlights four major dynamics driving mobile enterprise growth:
- 50% workers say their mobile device is very or somewhat important for their work.
- 74% of organizations have or plan to have bring-your-own-device policies in place.
- Enterprise spending on mobile technology is expected to double in the next five years.
- As mobile budgets grow, entrepreneurs are building more and more mobile applications.
We at TextRecruit appreciate the recognition and agree with Emergence on mobile’s ability to disrupt HR and recruiting. TextRecruit customers sent over 50,000 outbound recruiting text messages in August and are achieving 99% open rates with as high as 60% response rates. With these four dynamics at work we are excited to see what our customers achieve next month.
