After being in the HR Software business for several years, our team at HireGround has learned a few things about software and about human resources needs. When developing our latest product (the StartDate ATS) our team has taken the approach of starting with the fundamental needs and making those base features the best they can be. We ask potential and current clients what their needs are and what would make their job easier. Using these methods we have been continually adding features, with each one carefully thought out and developed to solve real HR needs.
Our latest feature release is the largest to date, and encompasses a number of exciting updates:
Twitter integration: connect your corporate Twitter account (or accounts) to broadcast your jobs. Choose what date and time the tweet is posted, as well as customize the message for each job if needed. Being able to schedule the tweet within the system means that you don’t have to worry about an internal posting going public too soon!
New ‘look’: this update gives a flatter look to all buttons and a lighter weight to our page headings among other modifications, keeping the system on top of current design trends.
Multiple candidate pipelines: Is the hiring process the same for a construction labourer as for a marketing manager? Of course not. Now users can have different sets of hiring stages depending on the job, department or division.
Coming up: a redesigned dashboard, showing current jobs and candidate status so a user can see at a glance what is going on, and where action is needed. Reports are being expanded to take into account those multiple candidate pipelines, and to give more meaning to some of the other features. For example, reporting on why candidates are being rejected, in what step of the hiring process and where they applied from will shed light on which advertising mediums bring the most qualified candidates.
