FindHire Launches Recruiting App on Apple Store -- First Stand-Alone Recruiting Application Ever on the iTunes Store(May 15, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- FindHire surprised many of the major players in the recruiting software and talent management game last week, when they released the first ever recruiting application for iPad on the iTunes store. Downloads soared the first night since the launch, purchased by both International companies and top global recruiting firms.
The launch of the iPad application was a significant step for the small company of three based in the heart of Los Angeles. It marked a milestone for them after seven months spent piecing together version 1 and getting it approved by Apple. It was even more significant as it is the only real recruiting tool on the iTunes store that allows the user to contact, interview, and hire a new employee all through the iPad interface.
"I basically wanted to be the first to develop a recruiting iPad app for businesses that made hiring as easy as making a restaurant reservation. Once I realized how valuable this could be to small businesses I jumped right in!" CTO Ryan Herman said in an interview. Ryan designed and programmed the entire app with a little verbal guidance of long-time friend and CEO Michael Dennis, who came from the recruiting world, where he was an executive headhunter. "Ryan is a genius, he has always been a programmer since he was young kid, but now he has a real trophy to show for it by being the first to create a real game-changer in my industry," Michael noted.
FindHire's iPad application for recruiting has a very clean user interface (UI) and is extremely simple to use. The dashboard has a wood grain background similar to Wunderlist, only instead of list items, the user has a candidate gallery to flip through. The candidate's pictures are all high resolution, and it makes it a nice experience when sifting through an abundance of resumes. Below the 'Candidate Flow' are two columns to show the user's daily and weekly interview schedule, and progress of open positions. The hiring progress bar is a great feature, but only available to the enterprise users and not available for the .99 cent download.
The toolbar at the bottom of every page is very helpful in navigating the different features of the recruiting application. The icons below let the user quickly select an option to search, schedule, or change their settings. Even the settings are easy to figure out, and let the user link to their social accounts on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. The social function is helpful to make sure that anyone in the user's network can see open positions.
The full web-based version of FindHire is also available, but fetches a slightly higher price than the .99 cent price tag of the iPad app. The added features are definitely a huge plus for anyone looking to hire more than one person.
