These times, almost everyone has access to a mobile device or a computer with a webcam and an internet connection.  It would be a shame if we didn’t make use of this situation. By implementing online video recording via webcams and mobile devices you allow cost-efficient and time-reducing job application processes.

Benefits of using video recruitment software

Why? First of all, you save time by letting applicants do all the paperwork. They fill out an online form so your employees don’t have to anymore.
Next is the amount of information video offers. Video is richer than text. Up to[80% of communication is body language](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_language "body language"). You can get valuable insights on candidates that wouldn’t be available through traditional methods as phone calls or written applications,  making it easier to select the correct personas upfront.
Another benefit is the option of online quality assesment. Video answers can provide an online quality assessment for specific skills and competences of your candidates (e.g. languages.)
Cross border recruitment becomes much more convenient. Because candidats don’t have to travel vast distances in order to apply, it becomes easier and cheaper to get international talent to sign up for a job application.
Another benefit that applies to the applicant is that a recording can be made at the most convenient moment for the applicant, in the comfort of their own home.
There are much more benefits than the ones above. In general the most important conclusion is that using a video recruitment software platform decreases candidate screening time by up to 75% (if not more) and helps you make better decisions about the candidates you bring in for in-person interviews which in turn saves you a lot of money.
