Ease-of-use

The most important thing to consider when comparing video interviewing software is your future success. From our experience, video interviewing success is defined by strong user adoption. It's critical that your team and your candidates find the software easy to use so getting started is simple and positive momentum can be built.

Features

With your video interviewing goals defined, the next step is determining which features you need to achieve those goals. As Analyst and HR technology thought-leader William Tincup says, "a feature is not a feature unless users use said feature." Therefore, make sure you're not sold on something your team will never use.
