4 reasons why your company needs video interview software

Busy has become the buzzword of the information age. Ask anyone in a professional capacity how they’ve been doing and odds are their answer will be some variant of “busy”. With schedules packed to capacity, any tool that can simplify processes and allow professionals to claw back a few hours, or even minutes in the working day is a welcome addition to any company.

Enter Wamly, video interview software that can help recruiters and HR executives cut through arduous hours of interviewing to vet large numbers of candidates quickly – freeing up time to concentrate your efforts on the very best talent.

Time is money – why video interview software lets you save both

Probably the greatest benefit Wamly can offer is its return on investment. Video interview software drives cost savings by allowing your company to streamline its interviewing process, saving valuable time for everyone involved. Because interviews are recorded they can be played back at a convenient time, like when you are in an a uber or after work hours. Instead of interfering with your schedule, Warmly allows the interview process to fit in with your time and your convenience – and that applies to everyone else involved in the hiring process.

Attract top talent

Attracting and securing the best talent has become a competitive business. Digital technology has broken down geographic barriers to employment, widening the net for the brightest and the best to find work in an organisation that fits their professional and personal needs. By using video interview software, you are not only signalling that your company is at the leading edge of digital trends, you are also ensuring that you can cut through the recruitment clutter to ensure better matches that allow your company to diversify its talent pool.

When niche is necessary

While most job specs can speak to a wide range of applicants from within a particular skills set, not all jobs are created equal. Sometimes a job needs a specialist with niche skills. When this is the case interviewing can become a particularly tricky task, with plenty of chancers hoping to somehow wow you into offering them a job they aren’t quite qualified for. Video interview software allows you to cut through the clutter by pre-screening candidates through focussed technical questions that only a specialist would have the ability to answer – effectively fast tracking better-suited applicants through the interview process.

It’s the way of the future

If there is one positive COVID-19 gave us, it’s that it forced even the most reluctant into using video and other technology in their daily rhythms and interactions. Video in all its renditions has proved a robust tool in keeping lines of communication open when the world shut down. But even before this, many progresive companies were already using video interview software in lieu of CVs when vetting their candidates for all levels of employment. And all signs indicate that hiring managers of the future will increase their use of video interview software.
