Smart Recruit Online Choose LaunchPad Recruits for their Video Interviewing Service


LONDON, UK, 22nd November 2013 — Smart Recruit Online have today announced the successful integration of LaunchPad Recruits' technology into their award winning online recruitment service.

The CEO and founder of Smart Recruit Online, Mark Stephens, said: “We are pleased to announce the formal integration of Launchpad video interviewing within Smart Recruit Online. It perfectly complements our existing range of candidate screening tools and offers our users an outstanding facility that is quick and simple to use, but can also dramatically affect the clients ability to accurately shortlist the best applicants”.

Video interviewing is one of the fastest growing features of modern day recruitment. Its popularity seems to be growing at a pace that mirrors the steady improvements to video related technologies for domestic users, such as the webcam. It also compliments the ever increasing popularity of online recruitment solutions, such as the fully automated system offered by Smart Recruit Online.

Businesses need to find, attract and screen candidates quickly to ensure they do not lose out on top talent to their competitors and the video interview tool allows the user to send a short selection of interview questions to multiple applicants and then watch the results as they come in from either a PC or mobile device.

The video interview can easily be shared with any other stakeholders in the decision making process too and ensures that time and money is not wasted on early stage face to face interviews, where the applicant is so obviously unsuitable. It also helps stronger applicants to stand out, so that the best talent is identified early and acted upon.

Will Hamilton, MD at Launchpad, confirmed the partnership with Smart Recruit Online and said: “We are pleased that Smart Recruit Online have chosen LaunchPad to deliver their video interviewing requirements. Their impressive online recruiting service is the perfect environment for recruiting companies to use our video interviewing and screening solution. Although we will provide the technology, their users will not have to leave the Smart Recruit Online dashboard in order to generate or watch the results. Recruitment Managers will be able to review the responses at a time that best suits their needs and will have the ability to replay, review and compare the candidates answers as well as share the video with other hiring managers who have access to the Smart Recruit system.”
