MILWAUKEE, Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HarQen, Inc., today announced the addition of in-browser recording to Voice Advantage, its flagship product that lets users use their phone and a simple web-based dashboard to create and distribute custom, recorded phone interviews. For the first time, job candidates will be able to use Voice Advantage anywhere they have an Internet connection and browser.
Voice Advantage in-browser recording is a free upgrade to Voice Advantage customers, and does not require any software download. All that's required is a PC or Mac with a microphone. Users now have complete flexibility to use either a telephone or the in-browser recording feature to record their conversation.
Voice Advantage candidates can now record interview answers using their PC, Mac microphones or their telephone.
"As HarQen expands our reach internationally, Voice Advantage has already solved international interview scheduling problems by allowing recruiters to record interviews that candidates can take at any time. Now with in-browser recording, candidates can respond to interviews with their computer instead of a phone. This combination provides employers a powerful and cost-effective alternative to high international recruiting telephony costs," said HarQen CEO E. Kelly Fitzsimmons.
In addition to international cost savings, in-browser recording also allows candidates to participate in self-service voice interviews at kiosks in regional offices or retail locations. This is a very convenient option for drop-in candidates to progress quickly in the interview process without additional burden on recruiters.
In-browser recording is also being added to HarQen's newest product, Symposia, which adds presentation, collaboration, archiving, note-taking and sharing tools to any conference call.
Voice Advantage in-browser recording is available immediately as an option for all Voice Advantage.
In-browser recording for Symposia will be available to beta customers immediately.
