The Kira platform has allowed us to differentiate between candidates and determine fit much easier

Pros

I like the timed responses, and opportunity to 'bucket' questions into different categories. It allows us to easily determine a candidates comprehension and see how quickly and concisely they can formulate an answer. This tool also offers us the ability to see who our applicants are, and if they meet the English proficiency levels that we require for admission into the MBA.

Cons

I wish the video would automatically feed into our CRM system. At this stage the link is a manual process. Integration into Salesforce would be ideal

Enhances the Student Applicant Experience

We wanted a way to personalize the applicant experience to our graduate program. Kira Talent has helped us to get to know our applicants as people versus what we read about on paper. It has helped us see who may be best fit for our program.

Pros

I enjoy the ability to be able to holistically access our applicants to our graduate program by viewing their responses to certain interview questions. It brings the candidate to life when we can see their personality and how they react and adapt to interview questions versus reading about them on paper.

Cons

Sometimes we run into issues where the students have trouble recording their answers due to connectivity issues. I also wish there was an easier way to view the videos once submitted rather than having to look through the log of applicants to see which ones are newest.

An innovative tool for online learning

The interface is elegant and the customer service is excellent. As a result, I had a tool that really elevated my course. The assessments were a tool for ensuring that students were prepared for class, and they actually enjoyed them.

Pros

The software allowed me to create video quizzes that enable students to offer thoughtful but concise answers on assigned reading. In an online environment, this enables me to get to know my students in a way that a paper and pencil assessment would not.

Cons

The students should not have to do the introductory video before each new assessment. This became redundant after the first assessment.

Customer Service needs improvement

It is a useful tool for high volume recruitment organizations.

Pros

The platform is very easy to use and provides candidates with directions at every step.

Cons

The platform is not mobile enabled and it became an issue with a lot of candidates that willing to take the interview on their phones or tablets. There is less support for French candidates and I feel that they can improve a lot in customer service and providing French support to candidates. The business has taken a very different direction and is focusing more on University admissions.

The Best Purchase We Made This Year

A+. Wholeheartedly support this organization and it's vision and efforts.

Pros

Kira's platform is seamless. It's easy to access, use and it provides critical data points. The staff was incredibly responsive, helpful and invested in our success. I expected users to be intimidated by the process, but that was NOT at all the case. Rave reviews!

Cons

It's somewhat laborious to set up, but it's front-end heavy. Once you have your platform ready, it requires virtually no upkeep. Additionally, our client service manager helped us immensely, and was an absolute pleasure. Additionally, Kira helped us process a full implementation at three times the speed that they normally would, based on contractual holdups on our end. Stressful in the beginning but worth every minute.
