My favorite feature is the text feature. We have not been able to reach so many people in real-time with any other system.Robin ManigaultHR Director, Aventura Health Group
One time I posted an ad and didn't get a lot of hits. Someone from Apploi called me and said 'Hey, I noticed you're not getting a lot of resumes.' They suggested I reword it to make it more attractive to the candidate, and I thought that was amazing that they called me.Shoshana EpsteinCOO, Genesis Renal Care
We use Apploi to keep track of the hundreds of applicants from different job posts. Historically, we would send a lot of emails back and forth but we lost a lot of insight and context this way. Now we have one easy, centralized location to handle all of the hiring and onboarding process.Yosef MendelsbergVP of Operations, Onyx Procurement Solutions
What I like about Apploi is that it is simple. I love that you can have pre-populated emails, text messages, even job descriptions so when you’re writing a job ad, you can pull it from the templates that you’ve created.Kristin McBrideCorporate Director of Communication & Employee Development, Panacea Health Corp Company

FAQs About Candidate Engagement Platforms
The most common reason candidates get frustrated during the application process is lack of communication from their potential employer. The best way to improve candidate experience and engagement is to send your applicants more updates about their application status and next steps—and the easiest way to do this is through workflow automation.
Virtual hiring has many opportunities for candidate engagement. Some of the most powerful ways to engage candidates virtually include sending them application updates through text and email; prompting them to complete screening questions and license verification online; and asking them to respond to candidate experience surveys.
The greatest issue facing most healthcare employers is an excessively long hiring period, either due to a shortage of candidates or a poor internal process. Qualified candidates are limited, and in high demand. Unsurprisingly, businesses that can make offers quickly are also typically the most successful and well-staffed. In general, the single most effective recruiting strategy for healthcare employers is to focus on developing a faster hiring process.
