Richardson, TX and Washington, DC – April 1, 2013 – HRsmart, a leading provider of global unified talent management solutions, today announced a new partnership agreement with Mobolt, Inc. This partnership will enable HRsmart customers to optimize the mobile job search and apply experience for an increasingly social, connected and mobile workforce.
The question is not whether employers should have a strategy to attract job seekers from mobile-social sources, but more importantly what do they do to convert completed applications from their mobile devices (smartphone or tablets). Today:
– 70% of job seekers use mobile technology to search for jobs.
– 86% would use a mobile device to apply, if there was an easy way to do this.
– Only 36% have ever applied (tried) for a job from a mobile device.*
“A non-optimized mobile apply experience is costing companies millions annually in wasted advertising dollars, unfilled jobs and negative brand experience. Astonishingly, on desktops, 20-30% of all candidates leave before completing the first step – user login. For those who get past, poor user experience results in further 40-60% drop-off of candidates. This problem gets magnified when a user tries applying to a job from a mobile device.” said Kshitij “KJ” Jain, CEO and Founder at Mobolt. KJ continues by saying “Our proprietary technology eliminates the first problem, and our unique SaaS architecture allows us to mobilize, clean-up even the most complex application workflows.”
“HRsmart partnership with Mobolt enables us to enhance our user experience with the ever growing demand in mobile and social recruiting” stated Mark Hamdan, CEO of HRsmart. “The robust integration of our ATS system and Mobolt’s mobile recruiting technology platform simplifies the mobile application process for job seekers. We are very excited about working with Mobolt to unlock the power of mobile and social recruiting to deliver the ideal user experience.”
At Mobolt we make mobile recruiting intelligent and have developed one of a kind solution that allows jobseekers to complete job applications via mobile. Our SaaS platform allows enterprises to accept job applications, enable social-mobile referrals, and power campus hiring from any mobile device. Mobolt is driven by the vision to improve the job apply experience for the applicant, thereby delivering better conversion to the employers.
