San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2005
WetFeet, Inc., provider of a leading hiring management system, WetFeet Recruiter TM, today announces the release of the industryÂs first and most comprehensive software platform to streamline high-volume interview scheduling. With its innovative candidate self-service functionality, WetFeet RecruiterÂs advanced Enterprise Interview Scheduler TM (EIS) makes interview scheduling easy and quickÂfor companies and candidates.
Developed in collaboration with Federated Department Stores (career site: http://www.Retailology.com), the nationÂs largest operator of premier department stores, EIS tackles the advanced scheduling needs of organizations that interview hundreds or thousands of candidates, engage in extensive seasonal hiring, participate in career fairs and campus recruiting, and conduct interviews in multiple locations or time zones.
As an example of the efficiency gains delivered by EIS, Susan Burns, Operating Vice President of Employment Initiatives and College Relations at Federated Department Stores, reports, ÂBefore EIS, one recruiter managing four stores would have spent several hours per week on interview scheduling tasks like preparing and sending invitations and following up to confirm interviews. And show-up rates were often not optimal. After switching to EIS, the same recruiter invited 100 applicants in 15 minutes, the applicants scheduled themselves, and the interview show-up rate improved by 50%.Â
Unlike other Applicant Tracking Systems that simply e-mail candidates interview invitations and confirmations, EIS was specifically designed to handle multiple types of interviews, variable and recurring schedules, and complex logistics. By using EIS, recruiters decrease Âno shows,Â maximize participation in group interviews, and receive notice when schedules are approaching capacity. Candidates, in turn, get access to a straightforward self-service menu that allows them to pick their own interview time and request notification if additional times are added. Managers can track interview activity for themselves or for the entire company. EIS can also be integrated with MS Outlook, Lotus Notes, and other calendaring software.
ÂEIS measurably simplifies interview scheduling, a costly and cumbersome process for many companies. Recruiters simply invite top candidates with a single click, candidates schedule themselves, and EIS handles the rest,Â says Gary Alpert, CEO of WetFeet, Inc. ÂLike our hiring management system, WetFeet Recruiter, EIS is powerful, flexible, and easy to use. It can save a company tens of thousands of dollars a year while letting recruiters focus on the things they do bestÂfinding and hiring top candidates.Â
