San Francisco, CA. November 1, 2016 – COMPAS Technology, an enterprise cloud-based ATS/CRM platform, releases integrated two-way text messaging that gives recruiters the power to recruit through SMS. People are constantly checking their mobile phones, and because of this, COMPAS felt it vital to give recruiters the power to reach candidates where they spend much of their time. With integrating two-way text messaging, recruiters can establish instant communication with prospects and candidates to present job opportunities, keep candidates in the loop on the status of their application, confirm interviews, or simply to check-in.
Unlike other applicant tracking systems – which require you to subscribe to a 3rd party SMS service – COMPAS two-way text messaging is built directly into our platform. This means that every text correspondence is immediately logged into the contacts COMPAS profile. There are no 3rd parties, no additional contracts, and no toggling between your SMS provider and applicant tracking system to log your text recruiting activity. COMPAS SMS is a recruiting and sales tool guaranteed to speed up the recruitment process, while improving a candidate’s interview experience. “Because of its speed and ease, texting is a powerful tool that enables you to reach candidates easily. By adding integrating two-way text messaging capabilities into the COMPAS platform, we have condensed the communication gap between you and your prospects,” said David Small, VP of Sales.
Text messaging is the latest in innovative releases by COMPAS. Our release cycles are unique in that customers do not need to perform formal migrations to take advantage of new features, nor will they experience any downtime when upgrading. “Our in-app notification system allows users to instantly upgrade to new features when they are ready. This allows our user base to select which product upgrades to take advantage of at their convenience. Recruiters are busy and they should not be forced onto new products, which is why COMPAS allows them to seamlessly upgrade when they choose.” said CTO & Co-Founder Philip Atkins.
