BirdDogHR Unveils New User Experience

By Business Wire News


BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, today announced an updated user interface of the company’s software as part of the Summer 2015 software release. The transformed interface and mobile responsiveness provide a seamless user experience across all devices and software modules.

The interface update follows the company’s expanded offerings from recruitment and applicant tracking software to a comprehensive talent management solution earlier this year. The refreshed look of the talent management system extends the company’s new brand to the complete talent management system.

“BirdDogHR’s new user interface provides modern usability for already outstanding software,” said Gary Kirk, General Manager of Air Solutions. “Moving between the complete talent management modules is as easy as one click allowing for smooth and simple use. The update is the perfect mix of enhancing the look while maintaining familiar navigation.”

In addition, enhanced mobile responsiveness across the BirdDogHR talent management system enables users to access the software from any internet-enabled device. All pages across the software now resize when accessed on a mobile device. The mobile responsiveness also improves the experience for job seekers, enabling them to apply to jobs from phones, tablets, or PCs and use their Facebook or LinkedIn profiles to complete an application. As part of the enhanced user experience, job seekers can also save their application and return to it later, enabling them to switch from one device to another if desired. Glassdoor reports that 9 out of 10 job seekers are using a mobile device in their job search so in order to attract the modern job seeker, organizations are requiring an online presence and a mobile apply process.

“The mobile apply process has truly enhanced the job seeker’s experience,” continues Kirk. “Regardless of what device an applicant chooses to use, they’re able to easily provide all the information we require and if they need to pause in the middle of the application, they can now do that. With this update, we know we’re not going to lose any applicants because the apply process was too hard on their device or they didn’t have enough time.”

“Rolling out an improved and responsive user interface was the next logical step after adding the new modules earlier this year,” said Todd Skokan, President and CEO at BirdDogHR. “Customer feedback to the new interface has been very positive. We look forward to sharing our new look with even more companies who require an easy to use system for talent management.”
