Earlier this year, video interviewing specialist Odro partnered with the UK’s leading CRM and ATS provider, Bullhorn, to offer recruitment agencies a world-class integration with video interviewing software.
On completion of the project – which was 6 months in the making – the integration was extremely well received by both Bullhorn staff and clients alike. Now, with demand for virtual interviewing at an all-time high, Bullhorn users are benefiting from increased efficiency and improved workflows, right when they need it most.
Commenting on the project, Odro CEO, Ryan McCabe, said: “Our development team spent a significant amount of time building out a slick and seamless integration, ensuring Odro was truly embedded into the Bullhorn system. Obviously, nobody could have predicted what was to come in terms of the situation we now find ourselves in, and anyone who works in tech knows there’s a lot of planning and scheduling that goes into a project of this size. So, I guess we were just fortunate with the timing, more than anything else, as the benefits for Bullhorn users are significant. Even more so now.
“In terms of how the integration works, we built out a tailored user experience from the ground up. It meant a lot more work, but we felt it was necessary as it’s the only way to give users a solution that has a real and substantial impact on their working lives.”
Commenting on the integration from a customer perspective, Kevin McGrath, Applications Project Manager at NES Global Talent, said: “We’ve been Bullhorn users for years now and the Odro integration is one of, if not the best, integration into Bullhorn that we’ve seen.”
Specialist Video Tech
With no other choice in light of the current pandemic, thousands of recruiters and hiring managers alike have turned to Zoom, Skype and other generalist video conferencing platforms to keep their hiring plans moving forward. But without the level of integration now provided by Odro’s platform, this means a lot of manual intervention, compliance risks and a lack of control when it comes to keeping records up to date. The very things that tech is there to negate.
Odro’s integration was designed and developed to save users time and energy when it comes to their every-day processes and business operations. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it means there’s no need to run a number of tabs when using Bullhorn in tandem with a video interviewing or video conferencing tool.
Ryan explains: “Our platform interacts with Bullhorn’s vacancy and candidate records so that we can reuse their details without additional effort and duplication. We update candidate statuses within Bullhorn in real-time, as the interviews happen, and we also allow users to import attachments against candidate records back into Odro to share with their clients.
Then, via our shortlisting portal, users can send a link through Bullhorn to their clients, giving them access to review the video recording, alongside other relevant documentation requested such as CV, cover note, right to work details. There are also lots of other features built-in, that have been developed specially to help recruiters do their job better, that you just don’t get with other tools.”
An All-In-One Solution
While Zoom and alternatives have a huge part to play, for recruiters, a specialist interviewing tool offers a host of additional benefits that have been designed specifically to meet their needs. As the UK’s leading supplier to the recruitment sector, Odro’s solution is the most innovative on the market, offering recruiters an all-in-one tool that can help streamline their processes and grow their business. As well as conducting and recording live, two-way interviews with candidates in one-click, with no downloads, sign-ups or logins required, with Odro at their fingertips, recruiters can also:
- set up and send candidates pre-recorded first stage interview questions that they can complete in their own time.
- send their clients a link to a one-click access, co-branded portal where they can review shortlisted candidate videos, along with CVs and all relevant documents in one place.
- increase engagement rates with prospect candidates by sending personalised video messages to their inboxes in just 30 seconds, again accessible in just one-click.
The platform also features a powerful analytics tool so that recruiters can gain real-time insight on their interviews and shortlists, in-built GDPR compliance for candidate consent and a best-in-class training and implementation programme.
When it comes to video interviewing software, there’s no better solution. And now, with the Bullhorn integration, recruiters have access to the most powerful all-in-one system available on the market.
