Zoho Simplifies The Hiring Process with Zoho Recruit.
With any luck the job market will be much improved within the next year, and Zoho has just released an application to help companies manage the recruitment process: Zoho Recruit. It’s an application tracking system (ATS) that helps staffing agencies and human resources departments track job openings, resumes, candidates, and contacts, and the streamlined process means recruiters can spend less time on administrative upkeep.
Zoho Recruit is a branch of their Zoho People’s recruitment technology, and touts ResumeGrabber, which sources candidates by pulling resumes from multiple web sources—social sites, email attachments, etc.—and even includes analytical technology that can weed candidates out. From there, recruiters can schedule interviews through the application, and also “lock” candidates who’ve already been decided on to avoid confusion.
Like other applications in the Zoho family, Recruit features drag-and-drop UI and is highly customizable to fit the users’ needs. For users working in staffing agencies, the application tracks and provides a platform for communicating with clients and contacts. And it will not only manage openings, but also serve as a platform for creating and publishing them.
Zoho Recruit has a free edition, and then the Standard edition—which allows for more job openings, mass mailings, and greater customization—is priced at $12 per user per month. Zoho has taken full advantage of their position as a web-based CRM platform by continually adding niche applications to the existing product, and it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with next. Below, a demo for Zoho Recruit.
