Developers of the staffing and recruiting software solution, Ultra-Staff EDGE, partner with Sense to help staffing companies transform the talent experience, increase engagement, and grow business.

CHICAGO, IL—Automated Business Designs, developers of Ultra-Staff EDGE staffing and recruiting software, have partnered with Sense to bring the twin powers of AI and automation to the staffing and recruiting industry. The new partnership automates communication and increases candidate engagement, while helping lower costs, protect revenue, and grow business.

The Sense integration within Ultra-Staff EDGE staffing and recruiting software automates outreach to candidates and contacts directly from the Ultra-Staff EDGE database. The integration brings staffing companies’ automation through email and two-way text messaging, AI-powered ChatBots, Net Promoter Score (NPS) surveys, and referrals. Ultra-Staff EDGE users now have the power of creating personalized journeys throughout the funnel when communicating with candidates and contacts. The Sense Chatbot also brings a game changing feature to Ultra-Staff EDGE users by providing 24/7 conversational AI assistance that allows a ChatBot to respond to candidates and screen them for jobs.

“We are ecstatic to introduce our new partnership with Sense,” stated Terri Roeslmeier, President and CEO of Automated Business Designs. “Current recruiting processes can be expensive and ineffective at times. Adding automation and AI into the mix will help eliminate the challenges faced with candidate engagement, finding the right candidates, and time spent on manual tasks versus placing candidates.”

In addition to bringing the power of automation and AI to Ultra-Staff EDGE users, they will also have the ability to send instant single and broadcast two-way text messages right from a fly-out menu in Ultra-Staff EDGE. The color-coded conversation gives users the ability to view automated messages being sent and also instant text messages. One of the best parts of the entire integration though is that all conversations through Sense are automatically logged in the Ultra-Staff EDGE candidate and contact activity notes. This includes surveys sent, ChatBot conversations, email and text message communication, and more.

“This strategic partnership with Automated Business Designs will combine the forces of Ultra-Staff EDGE and our Sense platform to continue to deliver best-in-class solutions for the recruiting and staffing industries,” said Anil Dharni, CEO and co-founder of Sense. “Our highly personalized approach to talent acquisition will be bolstered by the cutting-edge technology solutions from ABD.”

The Ultra-Staff EDGE/Sense integration sets the stage to address the current challenges that staffing and recruiting companies face with high drop-off rates, retention, ghosting, excessive manual work, and not taking full advantage of your current database of candidates. By eliminating these challenges, recruiters can focus on the core of what they do, placing the best candidates.
