Help your customers reach their talent acquisition objectives

For many businesses, talent acquisition is an important measurement of success. Hiring the right people and adding talent at every level is the key to business growth. However, the hiring process itself gets in the way.

Coordinating the schedules of a large interview panel – as well as dozens of candidates – eats away at large chunks of the day. Recruiters are left with little time to do anything else.

Our products make scheduling interviews easy and quick.

Time to hire isn’t the only metric that can be positively impacted. By sharing the interviewers’ availability in real-time, candidates are put in control.

This helps talent acquisition teams deliver a great candidate experience. It also boosts their employer brands, helping with future hiring efforts.

Real-time calendar sync

Calendar sync is one of the best ways to streamline your customers’ lives. Instead of flitting between multiple applications to check their availability, they can see everything they need in one go. They don’t have to waste time waiting for applications to load, or risk manual errors.

When calendar sync updates in real-time, there’s no risk of manual errors or double-bookings. They can see everything they need to know, when they need it.

Since our calendar API works with multiple calendar services, you can provide calendar sync to the majority of your users in a fraction of the time it would take if you built it in-house.

A booking interface that updates in real-time

Real-Time Scheduling provides you with a booking interface that you can add to your software in less than half the time it would take you to build something similar yourself.

You can configure it to your branding, ensuring a sense of consistency for your users.

Users can even request the schedules of rooms and resources when finding interviewers’ availability.

If rooms and resources have calendars set up already, they can be connected to Cronofy with Enterprise Connect. If they don’t, we can create calendars for them.

It’s a faster, easier way to offer calendar synced interview scheduling to your users.

Scalable interview scheduling

When interviewers’ calendars are synced with your software, they don’t need to get involved with the interview scheduling process. There’s no need to spend hours going back-and-forth on the phone every day, trying to find the best time for everyone to meet.

Your software can use the appointments already in the interviewers’ calendars to work out when the best times to interview are. No matter how many interviewers there are, no matter how many candidates there are, and no matter how many interviews that need to happen, it scales to fit your needs.

Interviewers don’t need to clear their schedules to ensure they can see every candidate, and recruiters don’t need to spend hours on the phone. It’s simple. It’s seamless.

How Real-Time Scheduling works

To schedule an interview with Real-Time Scheduling, the hiring manager enters the candidate details and chooses the members of the interview panel.

They then generate a booking link to send to candidates.

This link works with individuals and groups: there’s no need to email everyone individually.

Once the link has been sent, their job is done.

The candidate uses this link to book their interview in their own time, based on the latest schedules of the interview panel.

Schedule sequenced interviews in seconds

Multi-part interviews are the most complicated type of interview to organize. There are lots of moving parts involved, from the interviewers themselves, to rooms and resources, to candidates.

Using Availability Sequencing, you can make the process easier for you and your users.

You can add the feature to your software quickly and easily, while your users can create interview sequences in minutes.

You can choose between using Availability Sequencing as part of Real-Time Scheduling, or use it on its own to build a booking interface yourself.

Cronofy’s documentation, sample apps and support is excellent and has enabled a fast and painless calendar integration. Not having to integrate with different calendar providers and having almost no maintenance to speak of has allowed us to focus on delivering scheduling solutions based on the real-time availability of our users quickly.

Find availability in real-time

If you need two-way calendar sync but not a booking interface, you can use our Availability API.

When our Availability API receives a request, it returns times that work for up to 10 users, rooms, and resources. Your users don’t need to flit between different apps and calendars to check availabilities – they can schedule everything they need for an interview at the same time.

It works even better with Enterprise Connect. Enterprise Connect allows your software to connect automatically to the calendars of an entire organization. Employees get the benefits of calendar sync with none of the hassle that comes with a manual authorization process. It’s simple, it’s secure, and your customers have full control over who is connected and when.
