As ever, we’re excited to share what’s changed, so, just in time for the Holidays, we wanted to fill you in on a few of the things that are new at Beamery.
We’ve been doubling down on features that will give you even better data on your candidates, and help you make your talent pipeline even more of a competitive advantage.
If you’d like to see these features in the flesh, you can get yourself a demo here.
We’re happy to announce that Beamery will now parse CVs and other attachments that you add to a candidate’s profile.
We will automatically add important information from the attachment to the candidate profile, including contact information, work history, skills and more.
It doesn’t stop there though – Beamery will also uses the data in a candidate’s CV to find any relevant social and professional profiles. All of this social data is automatically added to the candidate profile to give you more context on the relationship and give you multiple ways of reaching out.
De-duplication & contact merging
For those unfamiliar with the term, “de-duplication” is the elimination of redundant information, or data, within a system. Given the rising amount of data being added to CRM and ATS systems, duplicate profiles of the same candidate are getting pretty common.
In fact, industry standards suggests that roughly 18% of the data in your database is duplicate – resulting in a fair amount of unnecessary clutter and inefficiency.
Beamery’s new de-duplication engine constantly scans your database to flag potential duplicate contacts and suggest potential contact merges.
Beamery can identify duplicates by canonical social URL, which means that we’ll spot duplicates even if they have different email addresses (e.g. combining work and personal email addresses into the same profile).
This is just the next step in our aim to become your single source of talent truth!
Other feature releases
The “anywhere” mini profile
We’ve made updates to the candidate profile that allow you to access it from anywhere within the application. This means that when you’re analysing the results from your email campaigns you can easily open up the profiles of candidates that are opening, clicking or responding to your messages.
The “Do not contact” tag
Apply the “do not contact” tag to candidates that you do not want your team to message. Once this tag is applied, candidates will never be sent messages even if they are accidentally added to campaigns.
Create teams in Beamery to improve collaboration. Teams can be set up in seconds to bring together different departments or project teams, and simplify sharing of candidates, pools and vacancies.
The daily digest
Beamery users can now receive a daily digest of important tasks and mentions direct to their email inbox. This ensures that important candidates stay front of mind and that nothing slips through the gaps.
We find that this feature can be particularly useful for anyone managing remote teams.
Again, if you’d like to see these features in the flesh, you can get yourself a demo here.
