Ceipal Launches New Partner Product, TextToHire, a Fully Scalable SMS Platform for Recruitment & Staffing Professionals

Ceipal’s New Product Line, TextToHire, Provides Enterprise Texting for Staffing Firms to Speed up Business Communications and Increase Productivity 

ROCHESTER, NY — July 29, 2020 — Ceipal, an industry-leading talent acquisition automation platform, today announced a new partnership with TextToHire, to provide its customers with a new enterprise texting platform for recruitment & staffing professionals.

Fully scalable and integrating with any ATS or CRM, TextToHire combines real-time communication, personalized messaging, and the power of automation. With a wide range of capabilities, including built-in SMS outreach campaigns, automatic notifications and reminders, and instant data sharing, TextToHire helps recruiters engage talent directly from their ATS, mobile device, or web browser. 

The launch of TextToHire was announced by Ceipal’s CEO & Founder, Sameer Penakalapati, at its flagship event, Ceipal Connect. 

“Studies have shown text messages to have a response rate that’s more than double to that of phone, email or direct messaging and 85% of customers prefer texting to phone calls and emails,” said Penakalapati. “If you’re not moving your firm’s recruitment strategy to meet the current shift toward texting, you’re missing out on a huge competitive advantage. It’s the future of our industry and we want to ensure our customers are able to embrace that future.”

TextToHire is Ceipal’s first partner product. The platform offers text-enabled business phone numbers, automatic SMS messages, personalized SMS templates, and—most notably—unlimited incoming messages at no additional cost. This pricing model is unique among industry SMS providers, who normally charge for both outgoing and incoming communications. 

TextToHire offers three pricing options, all of which include a free integration with the client’s ATS, unlimited incoming text messages, the TextToHire web app, and the TextToHire mobile app. The “starter” option includes 500 messages, the “basic” option includes 1,000, and the “professional” option includes 2,000 messages. These pricing packages are not subscription packages, which will provide staffing firms complete pricing flexibility. 

“One in five market leaders want to focus on leveraging the power of SMS to grow their business,” commented Penakalapati. “At Ceipal, we want to open that option to the entire recruitment world.”
