Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jacksonville, FL - Sep 19, 2018 - Breezy HR, today, announced the launch of native text messaging for recruitment on their applicant tracking system. With the increased need to engage quality candidates and expedite the hiring process, an intuitive texting tool that provides an additional communication channel beyond email and phone calls was needed to enhance the candidate experience.
A survey by Software Advice found nearly 2/3rds – 66% – of job seekers consider it acceptable to be contacted via text message by a recruiter. Breezy HR took this into account as recruiters are continually looking for new ways to communicate with candidates and keep them engaged in the hiring process.
“Breezy HRs new texting feature has created a whole new channel of communication with our candidates,” said Vicki Templet, Operations and Marketing Technology at Innovative Outsourcing. “Scheduling interviews is a time-consuming process for us, and texting reduces the time it takes to get responses. The fast-reply nature of texting means jobs fill faster.”

With texting capabilities businesses can now:
- Engage with One or Multiple Candidates, in Real-Time: The average response time for a text message is just 90 seconds. Compare that to the average response time for an email, which is 90 minutes, according to CTIA.org. With Breezy’s new texting solution, passive and active candidates can be instantly engaged on an individualized basis, or broadcasts can be sent to entire groups of job seekers.
- Run Nurture Campaigns for Candidates: Companies that excel at nurturing candidates fill roles sooner at a 33% lower cost and nurtured candidates move through the hiring funnel faster. Breezy Nurture Campaigns let you combine, order and delay sets of Text Message Templates so they’re sent out at just the right times to keep candidate pools engaged without ever lifting a finger.
- Automate Messaging : Recruiters and hiring managers can scale processes more quickly, with a personalized touch, by using template messages. Moving candidates to different stages in the hiring process can trigger automated responses resulting in a seamless candidate experience helping build a larger talent pool by keeping candidates engaged over a longer period of time.
“Candidate experience isn’t just about what you say, but also how you say it,” said Darren Bounds, CEO and Founder of Breezy HR. “Our new text messaging features give hiring teams a powerful suite of tools to engage with candidates more quickly and authentically, in a way that’s as familiar as email.”
