New fully integrated feature speeds communication with applicants and increases engagement

Tuesday, July 1, 2019

SwipeClock today announced unlimited texting is now available in ApplicantStack, the top-rated applicant tracking solution included in WorkforceHUB or as a standalone product. Customers that activate the feature before July 8, 2019, receive their first month free—a savings of $25 in the first month. ApplicantStack allows collaborative, paperless recruiting and onboarding. SwipeClock is a leading provider of simple and affordable workforce management services.

“Texting is the communication method of choice for many applicants,” said Coleman Barney, SwipeClock CEO. “This new capability speeds communication and response times and helps streamline and shorten the hiring process for our customers.

Once texting is activated, ApplicantStack users are immediately able to text applicants by clicking on a mobile icon next to the applicant’s contact information. Landlines are automatically recognized and excluded from texting. Users can enter both text and an optional link to a questionnaire. Reply messages are displayed within ApplicantStack, which also keeps the messages as part of the applicant’s complete history.

ApplicantStack with texting enabled helps hiring managers communicate more effectively with job applicants. Managers who communicate with job applicants by text can expect a 98 percent open rate — far greater than with email. Candidates are more likely to read text messages and typically respond within three minutes.

Texting capability is available for US and Canadian users only.
