We really like this tool. A great addition to our recruitment function. We're able to see candidates prior to the interview stage, and this saves us precious time.
Simple to use for candidates, videos can be customised to your brand.
Integrations take a while, users have to share logins to be able to see video interviews that need to be shared across the team

easy to assess candidates, saves time on those who don't qualify based on language for example
it's a great tool if you need to hire people who nedd to talk in their job (such as sales) as you can qualify them straight away (language skills, being at ease while talking to the screen adds up some anxiety too). most of the candidates really loved it as they thought it was an innovative tool.
it's easy to set up. you can use templates, you can integrate it with your ATS which makes it even simpler.
some candidates do not like this way interviewing however, though it's not the con of the software.
