Sense, the market leader in AI-driven talent engagement solutions for recruiting, today announced the integration of WhatsApp for Sense Messaging, allowing recruiters everywhere to easily communicate with more candidates on the platform enterprise employers prefer. The new feature allows for 1:1 conversations and broadcast messages through WhatsApp while leveraging the collaboration and intelligence built into Sense Messaging today.
The addition of WhatsApp to Sense Messaging enhances the recruiter and candidate experience by allowing them both to have conversations on the messaging platform they prefer while taking advantage of shared inboxes, Chrome extension replies, mobile app communication as well as the other tech-based solutions within Sense Messaging.
“While SMS is popular in the U.S., international recruiters communicate with candidates via other messaging platforms including WhatsApp,” explained Alex Rosen, Sense Head of Product and Co-Founder. “Adding this feature to Sense Messaging expands our reach to the global enterprise market and enables recruiters everywhere to communicate with candidates on the talent engagement platform most preferred by our enterprise customers,” he added.
WhatsApp for Sense Messaging features include:
- Global candidate reach for recruiters
- Faster responses with an increased response rate
- Time savings with broadcast messages
- Increased visibility for talent acquisition managers
- Easier collaboration for recruitment teams
- WhatsApp and SMS messages will each have their own tab so recruiters can easily distinguish between the outreach platforms
- The ability to send 1:1 messages or broadcast messages
By providing an additional outreach channel for recruiters to communicate with candidates, the introduction of WhatsApp opens the door to more qualified candidates and increases candidate response rates while also increasing visibility and collaboration amongst recruiters and recruitment teams. Unlike other messaging solutions, WhatsApp integration comes with all the benefits of Sense Messaging and can easily pair with other Sense solutions within the platform for a robust communication system.
