The tool is an amazing application and is very easy to use, support and customer service is great and the team is always available. Helps us a lot during our Campus drives and makes the Campus recruitment easier for us.
Helps to manage our drives remotely, very easy to use, great customer service and support.
would be great if they could support content as well.
Sweta from Mu Sigma Business Solutions
The software is easy to use, but the customer support is not at all close to satisfactory. We have had a number of misses from their side. They are more reactive than proactive , and sometimes do not loop us in for changes they make to our process
Merin from Tech Mahindra
It has been an enriching experience. The initial few months have been great. off late the response has mellowed down a bit and hence it feels a little aloof. However it is a great platform and it is good to be connected with you folks.
Melson from Tech Mahindra
After using the application for over two quarters, Overall a good application with good customer service.

We have been doing the Campus selections the traditional way of Apti, GD & PI for long now. It was a time consuming process and also had high cost of travelling, stay apart from cost of time involved in the process. Also GD in itself was not a scientific process of selection of candidates and many a times would filter out the best ones and filter in the below par.
This year as we were evaluating many online tools to replace our written apti and GD we came across Talview. Talview was one of the unique software wherein candidates can give an online interview and the system is smart enough to understand the competencies of the individual.
the report gave very clear analysis of the individual and helped to filter out candidates who were below par in your important competencies and probe the ones who make it to the personal interview round.
The software had ability to be customised as per the competencies of the organisation and hence it was very close to our requirement. After doing some pilots we went ahead with this as a process for campus selection. The support team was very helpfull throughout and co-ordinated all bits with the institutes and the HR team didn¿t had to intervene if there were any queries or challenges. The reports were always available as per the agreed TAT.
For most of the students it was an novel and great experience, they started calling it "Selfie wala test" as they used the mobile app for the process. The whole process had lot of communication on mails with the candidates which kept them updated about all steps and also about the organisation, which under normal process is left out and some people feel left out. The brand image as an employer for the students due to the automated process was found to be far high.
Internally also the stakeholders were pretty happy with the process as functional Managers had to go to the institute only in the later half of the day and just take the final interviews.
Automated analysis of competencies

Talview provides an alternative channel to review candidates whom we've shortlisted in the initial stages of the recruitment process. This saves time for the team where we usually would need to take out time to meet up with candidates and/or having to re-arrange in case of no-shows or last minute circumstances. With the amount of applications we are receiving each day and the volume of CVs to go through for each role, this helps greatly in our initial screening process.
Seeing the candidates upfront on the video interviews and seeing how they speak and present themselves. Saves time for the recruiters.
User Interface is still slightly confusing at times with bugs appearing randomly although it doesn't affect the overall usage.
Hope to see it rolled out proper for mobile platforms and also a better UI to increase effectiveness of using the site.
Jasmine from Bain & Company SE Asia
It has been an interesting experience working with Talview. We started off on quite a rough start, as there were features and functionality that we needed Talview to uniquely cater and adapt to our needs. The customer support is probably the best part of the service offered by Talview. It has been about 8 months working with Talview and sometimes we do still experience certain hiccups that candidates face so unfortunately it feels like we have not yet reached a point whereby the system is "stable" and able to "self run" so to speak. I think that the foundation that Talview is built on is a good one, but in order to grow, it needs to ensure continuous stability, improve its user experience, and have the ability to modify and adapt its platform to meet the customer's needs. Recruitment at every company is unique and different and it needs to able to modify its platform while still being functional in order to work with a variety of companies who are different in size and industries. The most frustrating experience was the constant need of testing (and time involved doing so) and finding out that there were different modules had reverted back to its original state or default template at different points in time.
It had the modules that we were looking at implementing at a reasonable price
There are still system errors that we are encountering despite having already launched more than 6 months.

We used Talview to hire for sales managers. Candidates loved the experienced and hiring managers were very happy with the outcome. We evaluated many other tools, none came close in terms of features.
Excellent Service, Enterprise Grade, Good UI
Nothing I can think of, maybe they can offer call support in Spanish.
Dilip from Hash Solutions
We have provided it to many of our clients who are primarily in hiring multiple geographies, especially in the emerging economies. It works very well within infrastructure constraints and on mobile.
