IT Staffing Firm Meridian Technologies Improved Response Rates by 240% and Increased Submissions with TextUs + Bullhorn

Posted by TextUs Team on Oct 18, 2018 10:11:27 AM

Meridian Technologies, an IT staffing firm, knew the power of texting. “If you’re not texting candidates, you’re behind the eight ball,” said Justin Van Tassel, Director of Recruiting, Talent Acquisition, Training & Development.

Their recruiters were using their personal cell phones to text with prospects and candidates and seeing great response rates over email and phone outreach alone.

But not everyone was comfortable using their personal cell phones, and as a result, Meridian wasn’t able to adopt text messaging company-wide. What’s more, when the staffing firm was using a BYOD (bring-your-own-device) model, management had zero insight into the quality, frequency, and efficacy of text outreach. This left a big hole in their analytics.

Introducing TextUs Voice - The Next Wave in Business Communication is Here

Posted by Nate Bishop on Oct 2, 2018 3:07:00 PM

There is a major shift happening in business communication right now. Your business is no longer in control of the conversation -- the customer is.

We can all order anything online, instantly get a ride, access all the entertainment and information that we want, on-demand and on our phones. This means that the power to make the decisions that drive business is literally in our pockets.

But, when it comes to business conversations, most companies are still acting as though the ball is in their court. We’re still using a business-first approach instead of a putting the customer first.
