Text Messaging has proven to have eight times the response rate of traditional communication efforts.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 10, 2018
BlueSky announced today that it will integrate with TextUs, implementing conversational text messaging into its best-in-class Medical Staffing Software and VMS.
Text messaging delivers eight times the response rate of phone and email communication efforts. With this technology integrated into the BlueSky platform, recruiters will be able to engage with their candidates, build better relationships, communicate more effectively, and make placements faster.
Contingent healthcare staffing growth is currently outpacing that of many other industries. With a shortage of nurses and other healthcare professionals, hospitals and healthcare facilities are relying more heavily on contingent labor provided by staffing agencies. As a result, the contingent workforce is getting inundated with more requests. They’re sending more phone calls to voicemail and ignoring more emails from recruiters.
Introducing TextUs into the BlueSky platform helps agencies and recruiters communicate with candidates the way that they want to, on their time, without interrupting their busy lives.
"When demand exceeds supply in any marketplace, the speed of vendors to market becomes a key differentiator," said Timothy Teague, BlueSky's President and CEO. "Our partnership with TextUs further enhances our clients' ability to more quickly penetrate their respective markets."
Recruiters within the BlueSky system will now be able to send and receive personalized, targeted text messages using the TextUs platform. The integration also furthers BlueSky's commitment to creating transparency throughout the staffing and recruiting process by automatically recording texts and storing them inside a candidate's profile.
As part of the partnership, BlueSky's customers will receive preferred pricing from TextUs. Visit TextUs for more info.
