TIMIFY is an appointment scheduling and resource management software for teams and enterprises
Whether you’re a candidate, employer or recruitment agency, the process of managing a schedule of interviews is often a slow and painful one.
Endless back and forth over diary space, meeting rooms and last-minute reschedules delay filling the vacancy, waste valuable company time and frustrate everyone involved along the way.
That’s not to mention the ugly impression a chaotic interview process makes on the candidate, and subsequently your company’s reputation as they report back to recruiters and colleagues.
For many companies, manually managing the process is no longer acceptable - particularly with Coronavirus further complicating recruitment and interviewing. A digital solution is a must.
At TIMIFY we’ve seen a big increase in customers looking for interview scheduling software that can sync calendar availability between multiple parties in an instant, whilst giving flexibility to all involved.
This streamlines every aspect of the experience, from automated messages, reminders, and simple rescheduling to arranging multiple interview rounds with participants in different locations, incorporating video conferencing where required.
Candidates can choose interview slots that suit them best, at the touch of a button. Recruiters and employers save a fortune in staff time and boost their image as a fresh, forward-thinking operator.
Let’s look at how using TIMIFY as an interview booking solution would benefit an interview for a new project manager role at every stage.
Create a service for the Project Manager interview. Set parameters such as meeting length, personnel involved or meeting room requirements. Split the appointment into separate stages with different interview panels or add intervals for tasks, tests, comfort breaks or changeovers. Common interview formats can be saved as a reusable template.
The availability in every participant’s calendar can now be collated by the software – as well as additional resources such as meeting rooms – to then present a schedule of potential slots for the interview to take place. This can be shared externally as a simple link sent to the candidate or recruiter. Any subsequent changes to any participant’s availability will be updated in real-time in the calendar.
The candidate clicks on the booking link and selects their preferred time for the interview. TIMIFY syncs with common calendar tools such as Google Calendar or Office 365, allowing candidates to add and monitor the appointment to their own schedules without issue.
Once an appointment is booked, a confirmation message is sent to all parties. The candidate will find all the information needed for the interview: time and place, a link to join a video conference if needed, a map and an optional link offering the possibility to reschedule or cancel the appointment online.
At a chosen time before the interview date, automated reminders are sent to all participants. If the interview is an online conference or call, reminders will include joining details.
There are a host of other TIMIFY features that bring simple solutions to more complex recruitment needs.
The ultimate benefit of TIMIFY as an interview scheduling tool is to recruit better employees. With so much admin time removed from HR teams and interviewers, far more head space can be committed to refining interview formats and discussions, leading to better appointments.
