SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2013) - Wowzer, the easy-to-use video interviewing platform that enables higher quality and more personal interactions between candidates and recruiters, today announced the global availability of their first public application programming interface (API). The all-new API allows customers, such as recruitment agencies, to integrate Wowzer's award-winning video interviewing technology into their existing systems, further streamlining the recruitment process.
Although Wowzer has custom integration with applicant tracking systems like Taleo, some customers want the ability to build seamless integrations into their existing systems; therefore, Wowzer created its API to provide flexibility to customers who require a more unique, customizable video interviewing product. The new API allows clients who have customized their own recruiting technology to incorporate Wowzer into their day-to-day workflow and enjoy advanced features, such as:
- Inviting candidates to participate in a video job interview from within any custom or proprietary system
- Tracking the status of the candidate's interview response and automating triggered workflow actions and notifications based on changes in status
- Reviewing and evaluating candidate video responses from within any custom or proprietary system
Integrating the API into an organization's own system will leverage existing authentication mechanisms, so recruiters can conduct and track Wowzer video interviews without having to leave their usual recruitment platform to log on to a separate interface.
"Leading employers choose Wowzer for the flexibility of our platform, from extensive brand customization to rating mechanisms tailored to each team's evaluation criteria. Developing a public API seemed like the next logical step in expanding our initial product offering," said Imo Udom, Co-Founder and Vice President of Business Development for Wowzer. "We will continue to enhance our API and look forward to gathering additional insight from customers on what new and improved features they would like to see added."
Wowzer's award-winning video interviewing technology allows HR teams to choose between recorded and live interviews that empower job candidates and employers to make more informed choices. Thanks to prerecorded videos that highlight the company's corporate culture and employees, candidates learn as much about a potential employer as the company learns about them, helping organizations to create more meaningful relationships with candidates.
Wowzer's public API is available to Wowzer customers at no extra charge. Wowzer's standard subscription pricing allows each recruiter to conduct unlimited interviews and allows the organization to make unlimited API calls annually.
Wowzer enables higher quality and more personal interactions between candidates and recruiters through its video interviewing platform. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Wowzer serves clients internationally, including Adidas, Sephora, Deloitte and Manpower. Early investment in Wowzer comes from recruitment industry venture capital leaders DCM (early investors in HireRight), 500 Startups, Kapor Capital, and Recruit (one of the largest Global HR service providers).
