      A sneak peek of the new Talkpush

      Ready to level up your recruitment?
      Let’s jump on a call and explore how Talkpush can help your team.

      We have rolled out our new CRM to a few beta users and this are some of the favorite new features


      The newest version of the Talkpush CRM comes packed with features to help recruiters achieve their goals even faster. The CRM was rebuilt from the ground up to favor speed, a mobile-first experience and productivity. Below are the features that got the most positive response from our early testers.

      7x faster than before!

      Average latency today (orange) versus a month ago: 7x faster on average.

      In the candidate-first labor market, where the job seekers have more options than ever, the faster your team processes incoming candidates, the higher their chances of converting them into hires. In many cases, who gets to hire the best candidate is whoever spoke to them first. Can you grab the best talent before everyone else? Automating the selection is only half the equation, the other half is how fast your recruiters will get in touch with them. This begins with a high speed CRM which is why we focused on building an interface 7x faster than it was last month!

      A real-time interface to grab candidates the moment they arrive

      We implemented a real-time interface that shows any critical activity on their online channels, including a candidate sending an SMS, being shortlisted or asking a question your bot cannot answer. As soon as a new message comes in, the assigned recruiter receives a notification, giving them an opportunity to immediately talk to them.

      Write to candidates faster with auto-complete

      Talkpush now automatically suggests quick replies (templated messages) or tokens (placeholders) based on your input. Let’s face it, recruiters feel like a broken record sometimes… repeating the same things over and over again. Now, automation can handle the boring parts!


      Text recruiting is dead. Long live messaging recruiting!

      While some recruiters are just discovering the joys of text recruiting, Talkpush is a few steps ahead… and ready to move on to better/stickier platforms like Messenger and WhatsApp. Just like email marketing was spoiled by spammers in the 2000s, we expect SMS marketing to suffer pollution from overzealous marketers today. The ecosystem will be much less polluted in the environments controlled by Facebook, resulting in less spam, and therefore higher response rate. Check out below how Talkpush lets recruiters communicate on any messaging channel they choose: SMS, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp (Note: we can also add WeChat and Line Messenger at your request).

      The only CRM that lets you send your emojis via any channel: SMS, Messenger or WhatsApp!

      Tag and chat with your team

      Once the application is received, effective team collaboration becomes the next opportunity to level up the recruitment experience. On Talkpush, recruiters can now share updates and tag team members to involve them in the process immediately.

      Search (and talk to) specific selected audiences

      Massive passive talent pool are absolutely useless if you don’t know how to connect targeted messages to select audiences. In the new Talkpush, we changed the way you search a candidate, so you can filter everything from application date, interview date, location, source, assigned recruiter, key data and many more.

      Perform complex search queries of your candidate pool

      Communication evolves

      The baby boomers are retiring and Gen Z is entering the workforce. While we are used to using video, audio, gifs & emojis to communicate with our friends and family, the business world has not caught up yet.

      Creating familiar experiences for their audiences is the best way recruiters can get an edge on the competition. Therefore, the new Talkpush supports gifs and emojis, to create that extra emotional connection.

      Data that moves in and out of Talkpush

      Effective recruiters invest in their data and find opportunities hidden in their existing database/talent pool. With the new Talkpush, we’ve made it even easier to enrich your data, whether it originates from those thousands of automated conversations handled by our bots, or from your current ATS. The new data export offers maximum flexibility for recruiters allowing them to create distribution lists based on key data points. It event saves you a few brain cells, by remembering your last data exports.

      We recently conducted a webinar to display all of those new features at work. You can also watch the Spanish version of the webinar here. If you want to schedule a one-on-one demo, you can pick a time directly here.
