Montage Launches New AI-Enabled Recruiting Assistant to Enhance Candidate Experience

The Montage Intelligent Recruiting Assistant (Mira) accelerates hiring decisions and caters to the modern candidate’s expectations

August 28, 2018 (Delafield, Wisconsin) – Montage, the single solution to engage, interview and hire better candidates faster, today announced the Montage Intelligent Recruiting Assistant (Mira). Montage has introduced several artificial intelligence-enabled solutions in recent years and Mira represents the company’s collective approach to AI.

Today’s recruiters are asked to do more than ever before. In addition to increased demands on recruiters’ time, the hiring experience of most global enterprises hasn’t kept up with the needs and expectations of the modern candidate. Mira solves the challenges talent acquisition teams face and meets candidate expectations for a fast and easy hiring experience. Currently, the top two reasons candidates opt out of the interview process are because their time was disrespected or the process took too long, according to Talent Board research. Mira becomes the virtual assistant that gives candidates more control in the hiring experience and engages, prioritizes and advances candidates through an accelerated process.

“Living in the age of the candidate and seeing record low unemployment means candidates have more power and control than ever before,” said Kurt Heikkinen, President and CEO of Montage. “Speed and experience become important differentiators for our clients to engage and hire the right talent. By leveraging artificial intelligence, Mira gives recruiters more time to focus on talent, not tasks—enabling better, faster and smarter hiring decisions.”

As one example, when Mira schedules interviews, candidates select the time that works best for them. As a result, organizations that have implemented Mira have seen their candidate response rates increase to 84 percent and time to schedule an interview reduced to hours instead of days. When Mira invites candidates to complete and engage in an on-demand text interview, 90 percent of candidates respond, and the average time to respond is less than five hours—over 50 percent of candidates respond in 30 minutes or less.

“At Montage, we are proud of our history of innovation which is driven from the ability to consistently anticipate the needs of our clients. Using Mira as our approach to AI is no exception and we’re excited to see how this latest innovation is already positively impacting our clients’ success,” said Heikkinen.

Montage has always been focused on delivering the better candidate experience and enabling talent acquisition teams all over the world to make better, faster, smarter hiring decisions.
