London, United Kingdom, March 07, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Leading provider of advanced recruitment software, Swiftpro Ltd is pleased to announce SMS text messaging is now available on its popular CVPlus Visual front office application.
Today SMS text messaging offers recruiters some distinct advantages over email and telephone calls. Text messages are more likely to be read by the recipient than emails. And unlike telephone calls, SMS text messages are instantly stored, so they can be read later. This feature is particularly useful when recruiters want to relay detailed information, such as directions to an interview, or send a candidate’s details to a client.
As most UK jobseekers are currently employed, it can prove extremely awkward or inappropriate for them to take calls concerning new career opportunities during the work day. Text messaging offers recruiters a discreet method of maintaining contact with candidates, ensuring they are kept fully informed of all new job prospects.
In many cases recruiters will also find that text messaging is actually cheaper than making telephone calls. This is good news for startups wishing to keep their operating costs low while developing their candidate databases.
SMS text messaging adds another level of functionality and convenience to the CVPlus Visual mail centre, where professional email, letter and fax documents can already be sent at the touch of a button.
CVPlus Visual’s range of contact management and communications tools make it easy for recruiters to build lasting business relationships, generate new sales leads and actively promote their services using text messages. However, recruiters should be aware that there are rules governing SMS marketing activity. Visit the Direct Marketing Association website to learn more: www.dma.org.uk.
Text messaging services can also be used to improve communication with colleagues working off-site, partners, suppliers and clients, making sure that important messages are always delivered with clarity, accuracy and immediacy.
