Reference Assessments Can Be Initiated, Completed, and Reviewed from Multiple Mobile Devices

SkillSurvey, Inc., the inventor and leading provider of Web 2.0 reference assessment solutions, has announced that it is releasing a mobile version of its Pre-Hire 360® enterprise software for Blackberry, iPhone, and Windows Mobile devices. Available by fourth quarter 2010, the new delivery mode will mean that recruiters, candidates, and references can interact with the software anywhere, anytime.

The company’s plan to deliver access to Pre-Hire 360® via mobile devices recognizes that today’s recruiters, references, and job seekers work in fast paced environments that are constantly in motion. The introduction of a mobile ready Pre-Hire 360® reference assessment will have significant impact on the efficiency of the recruitment and selection process. “One of the benefits of the automated reference process is speed—references respond on average in 2 days—and mobile availability will only enhance that turnaround time,” contends Ray Bixler, chief executive officer.

Pre-Hire 360®, the premier reference assessment solution—and the first to provide mobile—will give:

  •     Recruiters the ability to initiate, monitor, and view reference assessments anywhere and anytime, e.g. while attending job fairs, networking events, and traveling to satellite offices
  •     Job references the leisure to respond to reference requests while they, themselves, are on the move
  •     Candidates the power to enter reference information and “kick off” the process no matter where they are

“For us, going mobile just made sense as we continue to focus on revolutionizing the reference assessment and sourcing process for our clients. Not only are we the inventor of online reference checking, we are now the first to take this breakthrough technology to mobile. Clearly, SkillSurvey is the Best-of-Breed solution in this space,” notes Bixler.
