Ascendify is a best-of-breed talent acquisition platform, enabling organizations to utilize their current employees’ social networks to build talent pools of active and passive candidates. Founded in 2012, Ascendify quickly gained recognition for its unique recruiting offering, winning HR Executive’s 2012 prize for Top HR Product.
While Ascendify lets recruiters leverage employees’ social networks to increase talent pools, it also allows them to track communication with applicants, much like a traditional applicant tracking system. For instance, Ascendify integrates with recruiters’ email, and stores candidate profiles in a searchable database that recruiters can use at a later date to source new hires.
Ascendify also has reporting features that allow organizations to run reports to determine which social networks or job postings are generating the most—and highest-quality—applicants. Finally, video interviewing is offered as an optional, additional module, which can help save recruiters time by allowing candidates to record their own screening interviews.
