Mobile messaging for recruitment

Reach applicants quickly and boost their chances of success

Text messaging can bring a huge range of benefits to any recruitment agency. It can help improve efficiency in your call centre, saving time and money on phone calls that don’t get answered. Ignoring superb statistics like the fact that 97.5% of text messages are opened within 5 seconds of receipt, or that the overall average open rate for SMS messages is 98%, text messaging provides an added level of convenience to client interactions, giving them the option to deal with tailored job vacancy information as and when they see fit.

The additional functionality that the Textlocal bulk messaging system provides is also extremely useful to recruitment businesses; allowing for the easy gathering, storage and sorting of customer mobile numbers. This in turn means that only the most relevant new job information received by each customer, personalising the service received by each, and increasing customer loyalty.

Hours less phoning and texting!

Great service. We use it to contact and keep in touch with staff. It has taken away hours of phoning around and e-mailing. Great when you're on the go and won't have a chance to get back to your desk. Flexiblility of texting online or by email is ideal when a number of people need to be able to access the service. Love it!
