Powered by Sophisticated AI and Machine Learning, Entelo Launches Envoy to Make Hiring Smart for Everyone

More than 75 leading companies now use Entelo Envoy to reduce time spent identifying and engaging with the right talent


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entelo, the recruiting automation platform modernizing hiring, today announced the public launch of its powerful new sourcing software, Entelo Envoy, to allow any company to dramatically accelerate the identification and hiring of the right people. Entelo Envoy builds upon the company’s existing platform, using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to automatically identify, qualify, and engage ideal candidates, saving recruiting teams time and money. Previously available only to existing Entelo customers, Envoy is now generally available and being used by more than 75 companies that are already seeing positive results.

“By combining the simplicity of a job board with the efficacy of personalized outreach, Entelo Envoy represents a new strategy in the recruiter's toolkit -- one that could ultimately make or break their business,” said Mike Trigg, general manager of Entelo Envoy and chief marketing officer at Entelo. “Your people are your company’s greatest asset. With Envoy, recruiting teams can dramatically increase the quantity and quality of their candidate pipelines through intelligent automation, while at the same time, giving themselves time back in their days to do what they do best.”

Entelo Envoy relieves overworked recruiters by automating the manual and repetitive aspects of sourcing, making their workflows much more efficient. It does so by:

  • Identifying top talent: Using patent-pending AI technology and machine learning algorithms, Envoy quickly finds candidates based on criteria set by recruiters. It automatically sorts, analyzes and ranks a person’s fit for an open position across several attributes, including job title, work history, skills, likeliness to leave their current role and more. Envoy also provides a real-time preview of candidates to determine the effect of various criteria and weighting in identifying potential hires. Rich candidate profiles enable recruiters to view details about candidates quickly and easily.
  • Contacting candidates proactively: Envoy reaches out to the best candidates at optimal times, contacting them with personalized messages. Recruiters can set controls to engage with candidates on the same day or delay contact until a time proven to yield the highest response rate. Envoy also sends automatic follow-up emails to candidates making sure quality prospects are nurtured along the way.
  • Delivering prospective hires to right your inbox: When candidates engage with companies through Envoy, their responses go directly to the inbox of the recruiter or hiring manager. Recruiters also benefit from analytics that show the effectiveness of specific outreach efforts.

More than 75 existing Entelo customers, including Infinity Ward, 619 Partners and MapBox, began using the Entelo Envoy solution during its beta period and are experiencing great recruiting success. Early customers report significant pipeline generation, in some cases with Envoy-identified candidates accounting for up to 50 percent of their candidate pipeline. Additionally, nearly 80 percent of candidates delivered by Envoy are accepted by recruiters and advanced to the next step of the hiring process, demonstrating that Envoy delivers quality prospective hires. Given the platform requires about 30 minutes per week from the typical practitioner, who reports spending an average of 13 hours per week sourcing manually, Envoy can reduce time spent sourcing by 96 percent.

“Unlike traditional platforms, Entelo Envoy saves about 10-15 hours per week, allowing me to push volume while maintaining a personalized candidate experience for each prospective hire,” said Talent Lead at Tubi, Chris Hartzell. “Automating the tedious work in the recruiting process is a big win for our team.”

Entelo Envoy provides a compelling new recruiting solution that will help disrupt the global recruitment market, currently estimated at more than $200 billion. With unemployment rates at historical lows, recruitment of qualified workers remains one of the most difficult challenges for companies across every industry. According to the Entelo 2018 Recruiting Trends Report, the majority of recruiters – 70 percent of respondents – believed that recruiting automation would increase their productivity. Entelo Envoy was developed to successfully automate the biggest pain points of the hiring process and help companies hire faster, smarter and better.
