We know you want to find the best messaging capabilities for your team, so we created this overview of Grayscale's key features to show you why our product is a compelling alternative to TextRecruit.
Texting is the way we all communicate in our daily lives, and it's time we start using this powerful channel to engage with talent. But when it's not baked into your ATS, it can be a terrible recruiter experience.
Let's take a quick look at Grayscale's core texting functionality and how it compares to TextRecruit.
With Grayscale's Chrome extension, you can text candidates directly from within your ATS. As you navigate between candidate profiles, the extension automatically updates to show you the current candidate's conversation history.
Each member of your team will have a dedicated, local number for the market they recruit in. This is important, because local numbers boost response rates. You'll be able to pick your area code during onboarding.
With Grayscale, you can send personalized text messages in bulk. Select a list or upload a CSV file, craft one message, and off you go.
The candidate will receive a text that's personalized and individual (they won't be on a group with others).
Want to send a text in the future? No problem. Pick a date and time to have your message delivered. This ensures the candidate gets your message at the right time, maximizing your response rates.
Unlike other products, Grayscale has no limit on the number of text messages you can send through the platform. So you and your team can start texting and never look back. 🏃
Don't you hate when pesky character limits prevent you from sending the text you want? Yeah, us to. 😅 That's why Grayscale doesn't limit the number of characters for your text.
How annoying is it to get a candidate all the way to the end of your process, just to realize they're also in process for another job at your company. 😱
We designed Grayscale so recruiters can easily see if a candidate is being engaged with another member of the team.
We consolidate all texts into one thread, with your messages in blue and your colleagues in green, to help quickly surface duplicative efforts.
Need to take the conversation on the go? Receive notifications and text from your mobile device so you don't miss a beat. Everything is recorded and organized within the candidate profile.
Looking for ways to drive more pre-qualified candidates to your jobs?
With Text-for-Jobs, candidates can text inbound to search open jobs, get pre-screened for opportunities, and get routed to the most appropriate place.
You can advertise your Text-for-Jobs campaigns on social media, at store locations, hiring events, on campus -- the possibilities are endless. Candidates text a keyword (e.g. "JOBS") to a short code number (e.g. 87943) to chat about openings.
This entire experience is automated and works for you 24/7, engaging candidates and driving qualified candidates to your jobs.
When Follett rolled out Text-for-Jobs, they immediately saw a 40% increase in the number of qualified interviews scheduled for their jobs.
If you're looking to drive more pre-qualified candidates inbound, Text-for-Jobs could help.
If you're like most talent acquisition teams, you're spending a lot of money to drive eyeballs to your jobs.
What if you could convert 5-20% more of that traffic to leads and applicants? That could result in hundreds of new candidates for your jobs.
