When searching for an interview scheduling solution, it's crucial to consider how you will be using the software pull quote

Video interviewing software is the new way of the world, but those interviews don’t just set themselves. interview scheduler is a tool that helps automate the scheduling process by reducing the time that many recruiters and hiring managers lose while completing the simplest of tasks. Here’s how interview scheduler does that:

1. The Software is Innovative

In a market oversaturated with up-and-coming tech, it’s hard to know which platforms fluff up their solutions and which actually do what they say they do. We like to think… well, let’s be real, we are one of the latter.

Our solutions are consistently evolving to better serve our clients with the optimal user experience. Available in 9+ languages and over 100 countries from any browser or device, interview scheduler syncs directly with your calendar so candidates can easily choose a meeting time with you. This cuts the back-and-forth time spent scheduling by an average of 84%.

We go a step further than just surface-level — our security measures are best-in-class. interview scheduler (along with the entire interviewstream platform) is SOC 2 type 2 certified and GDPR compliant. On top of that, your candidates have access to 24/7 support — a team that is filled with pros that can walk candidates and users through any complications so you never have to waste time troubleshooting.

2. It’s Easy to Implement

interview scheduler syncs with calendars directly so candidates can jump in and pick a time without the hassle of playing phone (or email) tag. Beyond that, the platform integrates with a host of applicant tracking systems to streamline the scheduling process even further. You can seamlessly sync requisitions and evaluate applicants in one place to advance candidates through the interview process more quickly than ever before (really — we’ve got the numbers to prove it in the next section).

We’ve also found that most interview processes incorporate a range of different formats. While a preliminary conversation may be a casual one-on-one or one-way video interview, as the hiring process progresses, it’s likely you’ll require an interview panel or multiple interviews held back-to-back. Our tool accommodates all of these formats, so you don’t have to skip a beat in the interview process despite being completely remote. With that in mind, you can rest assured knowing that you can host as many employees as you need in the software at any given time.

As for learning how to use and integrate the tech, we’ve put together resources for you, your team, and your candidates. Our robust Training Center has hundreds of courses that walk users through the platform start to finish. From basic software insight to candidate preparation, training your team members and informing candidates is taken care of. Finally, when it comes to integrating your ATS, we’ve worked with our partners to create step-by-step guides (technically there are 3 steps, not 2, but you get the gist).

3. It Improves Efficiency

By bridging the communication gap between interviewers and candidates, your team can take back hours of the time that you spend on logistics (one client saved more than 830 hours last year). To put it simply, interview scheduler takes care of the minor details of interview planning so you can focus on the tasks that matter. Based on client feedback, we’ve found that hiring managers are able to interview an average of 30% more candidates than before and their team members have reduced the average time spent scheduling interviews by 84%.

4. It’s Proven to be Effective

Candidate engagement is an on-going effort and there’s no concrete strategy that ensures success. That said, the flexibility and ease of using interview scheduler is what makes it so effective — 80% of candidates schedule their interview within 24 hours of receiving an invitation.

You’re also able to customize the platform uniquely to align with your brand which probably plays into the quick response. From the candidate’s perspective, they never know they’re using a separate SaaS; they feel like they’re operating directly through your site from start to finish, improving trust and brand awareness.

A few more fast facts before you go:

  • We helped Coca-Cola Consolidated (Coke’s bottling company) complete 6.5k interviews in one year. Plus, they were able to screen 20% more applicants in the hiring process
  • With interview scheduler, a global consulting group saved 830+ hours of labor last year while hitting an 87% interview completion rate
  • Another client (National Heritage Academies) saved over 750 recruiting hours, sharing that they built stronger connections and increased the quality of their talent pool as a result of implementing interview scheduler

Take Your Hiring Process to the Next Level

Automating simple administrative work allows hiring pros to be more productive. Even if they only save 20 minutes per day, time adds up quickly – that’s an hour a week at the very least that could be spent on revenue-generating work, like sourcing talent, screening candidates, or working with clients. Then consider a team of 10 – that’s 520 hours a year if they’re spending very little time scheduling.
