    With no other choice in light of the current pandemic, thousands of recruiters and hiring managers alike have turned to Zoom, Skype and other generalist video conferencing platforms to keep their hiring plans moving forward.

  • In fact, one of the most common objections we get when explaining the benefits of Odro is “Yeah, okay, sounds cool, but can’t I just use Zoom?”. And the answer is, “yes, you can”. When it comes to video conferencing, Zoom is fantastic! There’s no denying that, and we’re not trying to. But (and it’s a big but), there’s a massive difference between video conferencing and specialist video interviewing tech and here we explain why… First off, a picture paints a thousand words so let’s have a look.

    Let’s Break it Down

    OK, so technically yes you can conduct a two-way interview with a candidate on Zoom. Great, but that’s it. On the other hand, specialist interviewing software offers a host of additional benefits. First off, unlike with Zoom and others, there are no downloads, logins or passwords required to access your virtual interview room. Just send out your personalised link to your candidates and / or clients, and you’re all set, in just one-click.

    Then, over and above, with Odro at your fingertips you can also:

    • set up and send candidates pre-recorded first stage interview questions that they can complete in their own time.
    • send your clients a link to a one-click access, co-branded portal where they can review shortlisted candidate videos, along with CVs and all relevant documents in one place.
    • increase engagement rates with prospect candidates by sending personalised video messages to their inboxes in just 30 seconds, again accessible in just one-click

    The platform also features a powerful analytics tool that gives you real-time insight on your interviews and shortlists, in-built GDPR compliance for candidate consent and a best-in-class training and implementation programme. So yes, they are both video platforms but when it comes to recruitment, there’s just no comparison.
