Bullhorn Messaging powered by TextUs launches today, allowing SMS campaigns to be scheduled, sent, and tracked from within Bullhorn’s applicant tracking system.
TextUs, the leading text messaging software platform for business, today announced it has entered into an agreement with Bullhorn, the leading cloud-based platform that powers the recruitment process for thousands of firms in the staffing and recruiting industry, to power Bullhorn Messaging.
Bullhorn Messaging will more easily allow staffing companies to manage SMS outreach with scheduled 1-to-1 and broadcast messages as well as provide advanced reporting to better improve candidate engagement. The user-friendly platform allows teams to easily collaborate and will automatically update in Bullhorn applicant tracking system (ATS). Additionally, when coupled with automation through Herefish, Bullhorn’s recruiting automation and candidate engagement platform, Bullhorn Messaging will offer an industry-leading solution to SMS outreach in the staffing and recruiting space.
Text messaging within the staffing industry has proven highly effective, contributing to drastically improved speed to market and increased candidate placement, as firms rely so heavily on quick responses to be successful. According to Gartner, SMS open and response rates are as high as 98% and 45%, respectively, while email response rates are as low as 6%.
Anastasia Valentine, President and Managing Partner at IT recruitment company Resource 1, says: “We’re excited about the potential for Herefish and Bullhorn Messaging – now and in the future. We’ve been a user of Bullhorn, Herefish and TextUs for many years and bringing them together makes sense on so many levels. Consistent and timely candidate engagement is key for us, and because Bullhorn Messaging is powered by TextUs, we can be sure it is best in class from day one.”
“We are honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to take an already successful partnership between Bullhorn and TextUs to the next level,” states Martin Payne, CEO of TextUs. “Bullhorn Messaging will provide staffing and recruiting companies with a unified, powerful messaging experience within the Bullhorn platform that maximizes candidate communication and engagement through an unrivaled integration between two industry leaders.”
The scalable solution will be available to all Bullhorn customers and prospects in the North American, Australian and select European markets.
