Collaboration is vital across recruiting teams and functions, but often requires actions to be taken first. With Pulse, collaboration can happen without recruiters or other team members having to take any actions at all. Before any important meetings, recruiters can dive into Pulse and look at the last five conversations to ensure they’re up-to-date on what emails or other actions the entire team has taken with the particular contact. You can also dive into Pulse and see metrics about response rates for email and make an impact without having to call a client or user.
