Hire better people in less time with Wamly’s video interview software

As anyone who has been involved in the recruitment process will know, finding the right fit for the job and your company’s culture can be a time consuming and arduous task. Beginning with sorting through mounds of CVs before making a long list of suitable candidates and setting up interviews, which involves trying to schedule time slots to include all relevant people.

All this only to discover, in the first five minutes of the hour-long interview, that the candidate who looked like a 10 out of 10 on paper, is closer to 2 out of 10 in real life. The good news is there is a solution to hire better people, and that solution is Wamly – video interview software specifically designed to make life easier for anyone who ever needs to fill a vacancy again.

What is video interview software?

Video interview software is the perfect sidekick for the busy HR executive, manager or business owner. Unlike video conferencing software like Skype or Zoom, which requires everyone to be live on the platform at a set time, video interview software is a one-way interview process which allows recruiters to invite potential candidates to log on to Wamly and answer a set of job-specific questions. The recruiter can control the amount of time Wamly allows a candidate to answer each question, and because the answers are recorded on video, they can watch the interview at their convenience to get a feel for a candidate’s personality and professionalism.

Hire better people isn’t a one-person job

The more relevant people involved in the hiring process, the easier it will be to find the right person for the job. From line managers to CEOs, everyone can review the interviews at their convenience, be it at the office, at home or while waiting to catch a flight. The platform allows everyone to make notes, recommendations and score the candidate in the same space, offering an overview of strengths, weaknesses and overall impressions. In fact, because you don’t need everyone to be in the same room at the same time, you can invite additional people to weigh in on an interview if an alternative opinion is needed.

In addition to one-way interviews being a helpful early step in the recruitment process, by allowing recruiters to “meet” the person behind the CV, there are multiple perks to using video interview software.

With Wamly, you can reduce the time and costs involved in the recruitment process and, most importantly hire better people, faster – no matter where they are in the world.
