The folks over at Nodex are excited to introduce the ultimate recruitment website companion app for all of your candidates recruitment and employment needs! Their industry disrupting app allows users to easily manage their employment profile, including their contact details, work experience, and education. The app also features a powerful job search function, allowing users to search for jobs based on their preferred location, job title or keywords, and industry.
Why not use the account area my website already has?
Widely accepted research shows that candidates interact more with apps than websites - there are several reasons why. One of the primary reasons is convenience and accessibility. Apps can be easily accessed with just a tap, whereas websites require the user to launch a browser, type in the URL, and wait for the page to load and optionally login before they can even start to do the function they intended to do such as submit this weeks timesheet. Apps also provide quick and easy access to specific features or functions, without the need to navigate through menus and sub-pages. Also not all platforms offer the necessary account functionality required to perform the app functionality.
Is the app easy to use?
Candidates, job seekers and temporary workers can download your company branded app from both app stores and register their details in seconds. Alternatively if they are already registered via your website or CRM they can use those credentials to login to the app.
The app also makes it easy for users to shortlist and apply for jobs. Candidates can submit their resumes and cover letters directly through the app. Additionally, users can save job alerts, so they never miss out on an opportunity that aligns with their job search criteria.
How can it help my recruitment agency?
In addition to the advanced job search and profile functionality; candidates and temporary workers can also submit timesheets via an easy to use form or alternatively upload timesheets (such as PDF or images) directly through the app, so they never have to worry about missing a deadline. You are automatically notified when a timesheet is submitted which makes timesheet maintenance very efficient and keeps maintenance to a minimum.
Equally important to its incredible job search and fantastic management features, the app also allows users to send and receive messages in real-time. Candidates will also receive unread message alerts, so they never miss an important message you send. As a consultant you will also receive these alerts and as a bonus you may also login to the app to read and respond to messages.
The app has been expertly designed with a user-friendly interface, making it easy for job-seekers to navigate and find the information they need quickly and efficiently. Your candidates can also customise their settings, so they only receive notifications for the jobs and messages that are relevant to them.
Design and branding
The app is tailored with your company logo and brand colours and also take care of making the app icon and loading screens for you. Nodex also takes care of the app store submission and approval process and also handle all maintenance and updates. The name of the app can be anything you wish, however, Nodex recommend that you use your recruitment company name to avoid confusing candidates. For all intents and purposes the app will appear like you’ve had it built bespoke to order for your agency and it provides everything your candidates need to interact with your recruitment process.
Your app will be made available to your users to install for free on both iOS and Android platforms. It is accessible for anyone with a smartphone or tablet. Users can easily download the app from the App Store or Google Play via a search or a direct link.
Overall, the app is a must-have for any recruitment agency looking to enhance their candidates user experience (UX) and ease the pain of managing their employment profile, searching and applying for jobs, saving job alerts, shortlisting jobs, submitting or uploading timesheets and sending & receiving messages in real-time.
At the time of writing the cost of the app is split in to two portions.
- A one time nominal setup fee of £499 which covers the customisation, submission, approval and icon creation.
- A monthly fee of £99 per month which includes maintenance, support and automatic app updates / new functionality.
In comparison an app of this nature would normally cost in the region of £10,000 - £20,000 to build plus maintenance fees not to mention the headache of app store submission, approval and updates. Using the lower end of the costing this means that it would take around 8 years for an app agency to build you a dedicated app for your recruitment agency and for it to be cost effective.
This is an industry first. There is no other vendor in the industry offers a completely integrated recruitment platform experience which includes a recruitment website platform, a companion app to compliment the website and an optional dedicated recruitment CRM all with seamless integration to each other.
