Zoho Launches Zoho Recruit [Back on Launching Spree]

Zoho has launched Zoho Recruit, a tool designed to help HR Departments within organization for recruitment as well as staffing agencies.

Derivative of Zoho People, Zoho Recruit is essentially an application tracking system that helps HR professionals source and reach candidates.zoho-ats[1] spacer[1]

Zoho Recruit allows HR departments, Recruiting agencies and independent staffing professionals to:

  • Source and Reach Candidates – Gather resumes from multiple sources and do the initial filtering and resume screening more quickly – without weeding out the qualified candidates.
  • Manage Candidates and Resumes – manage resumes and track the candidates throughout the interviewing process. Zoho Recruit of course features a resume database. But beyond that, you can also schedule interviews, send automatic e-mail notifications and log candidate activities and notes. And once you’ve made a decision on a candidate you can “lock” him to avoid confusion with other positions or clients.
  • Create and Publish Job Openings – collect resumes easily by creating and publishing the job openings in your website – and allow candidates to apply directly from there.
  • Parse Resumes. Populate resume information from different sources like social sites, mail attachments and more through and integration with ResumeGrabber.
  • Activity Stream – The activities stream allows recruiters and sourcers to stay on top of the recent and future activities. For example: what interviews are taking place today, who got hired recently, what new job openings do we have to fill? [source, via]

Zoho Recruit is free for 1 recruiter and the priced version is $12/recruiter/month.

While this is ofcourse a great product concept, it does bring in an important question with regards to Zoho’s marketplace – essentially, this should have been a vendor’s app built on Zoho Apps Marketplace? (an important takeaway from Force.com?)

What’s your opinion?

Is Zoho back on launching spree? As I have mentioned earlier, majority of their products need sprucing and honestly, the team has ‘lot’ to do before they launch new products. If you are a Zoho customer, do share your opinion/feedback on their product suite.
