VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MaxHire connected staffing software allows users to send SMS text messages from MaxHire to any cell phone, helping recruiters get faster responses from candidates who are on-the-road. The leading provider of complete front office to back office software integrates with several SMS services including Google Voice and Red Oxygen to provide this functionality.
"Text messages have been proven to be a very effective method of communication and that's why we decided to add this functionality to MaxHire," explained Peter Blitz, CEO and Product Manager of MaxHire. "95% of text messages are read compared to fewer than 20% of emails, making it a very good medium to connect with a select, pre-qualified group of candidates."
A common problem that recruiters face are long lag times between sending out job posts to candidates via email and hearing back from them. Adding the ability to send SMS text messages to candidates directly from MaxHire allows recruiters to leverage this powerful communication tool and reduce the lag time it takes for candidates to respond to job orders. In an industry where minutes matter, quick response times can help recruiters make more placements.
MaxHire's SMS feature allows users to send messages to anyone with a cell phone and keeps a record of the sent message in MaxHire. Text messages are a convenient way to remind candidates of upcoming interviews and advertise new job postings to a list of pre-qualified candidates. If the text message is related to a new job posting it will also contain a link that lets the candidates apply to the job with a single click in MaxHire's mobile candidate portal. Clients wanting to send text messages from MaxHire need to have a compatible SMS account with an SMS provider.
MaxHire is committed to providing staffing professionals with the tools they need, in one integrated solution, to make more placements. The addition of SMS messaging to MaxHire provides recruiters with a form of communication that candidates are more likely to pay attention to and elicits a more rapid response from them also.
