What can you use the app for? is an online software-as-a-service hiring system that streamlines the recruitment process for small and medium-sized businesses. The system allows users to create candidates, assign recruitment tasks to team members, and manage the flow of the hiring process. Candidates can be recruited independently or by third party recruiters, and the user can follow the progress of individual recruiters during a hiring campaign. To use the system, the user first creates a candidate and enters the details for the ideal candidate such as experience, salary and job duties. At this point the user also selects whether or not to use third-party recruiters to locate the candidate. Then the user assigns the various hiring tasks, such as reviewing CVs, scheduling and interviewing the candidate to team members.
The user can then follow the workflow from the user’s Dashboard, or view more detailed information by selecting Jobs or Candidates from the top menu bar. The Jobs page gives a summary of the currently open jobs and the Candidates page gives a summary of the currently active Candidates listed with the job they are associated with. The system takes care of emailing candidates, recruiters and interviewers for scheduling meetings and interviews. In addition, the system allows the creation of SLAs (Service Level Agreements) with recruiters so that the hiring manager and recruiter are on the same page throughout the hiring process.

What are the differences to other apps?

Competition to Hirewall comes from sites such as CVRoster and ICIMS. CVRoster is also a complete, web-based hiring application. However, rather than being based on a software-as-a-service model, CVRoster is available for purchase at a one-time price. The user then owns the hiring solution rather than rents it. ICIMS is also available for a one-time fee, but includes performance management and other HR software applications in addition to the hiring application.
