Eploy, the premier cloud software company for the recruitment industry, has taken mobile recruitment to the next level. Having invested over £3/4 million and more than 2 years R&D the launch of its new 2013 web-platform boasts a much more advanced level of technical sophistication, social integration and overall accessibility.
According to ComScore, 2.8 million job seekers access job listings from a mobile device every month. A statistic Eploy's Technical Director, Chris Bogh promotes having taken the lead on mobile recruitment several years ago with Eploy. "Being a browser independent system, Eploy has always offered customers a feature-rich mobile solution - and uniquely across all platforms and devices."
"And now, whilst other software providers are still busy trying to catch up with this market demand for mobile recruitment, we have been able to forge Eploy's development even further ahead and create a new web platform for 2013 that uses the latest advancements in web and browser technology."
Chris adds: "Eploy customers are already demonstrating the true potential of mobile recruitment with 41% using mobile devices to access the entire Eploy recruitment system to perform their day to day recruitment activities. Whilst 70% have candidates accessing their Eploy powered career portal via a mobile device enabling them to search / apply for jobs, manage timesheets, diaries and more. It was therefore important for Eploy to further advance its mobile solution and offer customers and their candidates even greater functionality and a friendlier mobile experience ready for 2013."
"It's not just about being able to register and search for jobs. Candidates and mobile recruitment users in general are starting to expect the full desktop experience on the move. Every man and his dog has some sort of mobile offering today, but they are normally bolt on web pages or dumbed down Apps. These offer little in useful functionality, lack coherence and deliver a poor candidate experience at best."
"Most companies seem content to offer basic mobile access for their candidates, to tick a box, but this does not mean it is done well. The more sophisticated organisations are going much further than this. This is why we use the phrase 'mobile enhanced', it's more than just being mobile friendly, it is offering a superb user experience on mobile devices that genuinely rivals the desktop experience," said Chris.
In addition to all the feature rich recruitment tools Eploy is renowned for, the new web platform opens up the system to be even more flexible and intuitive for all types of recruitment activity. This includes fully mobile career portals enabling candidates to not only register but manage their entire application and career, from registration to interview booking and even compliance and on boarding activities, via smartphone or tablet devices. This includes ultra-modern talent community features.
The multilingual system also features advanced automated SMS / email / social communication tools and interactive social and referral links, which are all integrated into the core system and managed and tracked at source within the software.
Also new is a mobile intelligent mapping and postcode location service that links to a company's career portal / website via Eploy and Google Maps.
"With Eploy, customers can offer their candidates, clients and hiring mangers a tailored mobile experience years ahead of the rest of the industry, and that includes what they are doing in the US," confirmed Chris.
