Why more and more companies are making use of one-way interviewing software

One-way video interviewing software

  • Around the world, companies are starting to use one-way video interviewing software such as Wamly as it saves them hours on their hiring process. 
  • More than 400, and growing, companies are now using Wamly in South Africa alone.
  • Companies have saved up to 80% of the time they would’ve spent on hiring by using one-way-video interview software. 

Companies around the world have started making use of one-way interview software such as Wamly to save themselves hours on their hiring process, and to make better hires.

It is one of the biggest growing trends within the human resources industry, with more than 400, and growing, companies now using Wamly in South Africa alone.

And where one-way video interviewing software such as Wamly has been implemented, it has been found to cut as much as 80% of the time the company would’ve spent on hiring.

It has also been found that a manager can review as many as 30 one-way interviews in an hour, around the same time it would’ve taken to complete one two-way interview.

Wamly has already expanded to more than 12 countries and is now the fastest-growing one-way video interview software provider in Africa.

When the software was implemented at accounting firm The Beancounter, it went from taking three months to making one hire, to just two weeks.

With South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information (POPI) legislation coming into enforcement, Wamly has also proven to keep data safe in the cloud where it can’t be downloaded by third parties, can’t be shared with third parties and can’t be lost.

What are one-way video interviews?

One-way video interview software such as Wamly, unlike two-way interview software such as Zoom, Skype or Google Meets, allows a candidate to record their interview and then send it back to the company to review their own time.

It allows a company to facilitate the entire interview process without being physically present, thereby saving companies time and reducing the need for a panel to all be present simultaneously.

During one-way video interviews, it is up to the company’s discretion how many questions they would like to ask and how long they would allow a candidate to answer a question.
