Fall 2017 Product Launch: SmartRecruiters OS Ecosystem Integrates Facebook, Google, and Slack

Fall means beautiful heaps of russet leaves – ripe for the jumping-in but even more exciting, Fall means more features in the SmartRecruiters Ecosystem. It’s here! The latest Product Release! Integrations that will save time, encourage collaboration, and boost candidate experience.

When we say integration we mean partnership with the platforms you already use like Facebook, Google Job Search, and Slack so you can work where you work best with the full power of SmartRecruiters’ Talent Acquisition Suite behind you.

Open up a channel in Slack with other interviewers, use Facebook to create a job marketing campaign, or narrow down your job hunt by commute time with Google Job Search – all these things are now possible within the SmartRecruiters ecosystem

Our OS ecosystem will now include these major players to enhance each step of the recruiting process from attracting to selecting to hiring. It’s all about saving you time so that you can invest in relationships with the right candidates. Because we think technology should help us be better more personal humans.

And that’s why these small tweaks and add-ons are actually a big deal!

Maybe you’re waiting for a promising candidate to graduate you can use the Defer Candidate feature to resurface them at the right time and on the other side if you know a candidate is a poor fit immediately (heartbreaking but it happens) you can utilize the Delayed Rejection option to observe an appropriate period of consideration. Recruiters can also expedite the vetting process with Screening Automation that uses enhanced screening questions to sort through applicants more efficiently.

We give you the reigns with the right amount of flexibility and control to tailor the experience to the needs of your business. In the end we want you to feel in command of the hiring process. It should be a good for everyone.

One key component of how we fit with your business is the language we use. Now pretty much wherever you are you can find the front and back end languages you need from our system. We are adding more languages to the platform’s back office functionality, including traditional Chinese, Hungarian, Japanese, Portuguese and Slovak, on top of the 12 other languages it currently supports, and is adding new candidate languages, including Greek, Indonesian and Ukrainian, to the 30 other candidate languages currently supported.
