Client satisfaction

I have always been trying to find a way other than email and ATS submissions to basically get a richer & better way to submit candidates, but also to get a lot more interaction. [...] I have also looked at other client portal - even the ones integrated with Bullhorn - but couldn't get them to work. [...]

95% of our clients love Candidate.ly and the other 5% are dinosaurs.
