Challenges Faced

Verticalmove was having trouble keeping up with the digital transition because  they had a lot on their plate and limited resources. Having lost a significant chunk of its sales team while struggling to catch up with the digital transformation, Verticalmove, Inc. was left with a lot on its plate with fewer resources. At this moment, they turned to iMocha to fill gaps that were expected to widen.

Hiring adept candidates

While resume screening is among the primary steps in hiring, it is seldom fruitful in capturing candidates who actually meet job requirements. Moreover, manual one-to-one interviews are always time-consuming and may not always reflect candidates’ potential to create the desired dent. Verticalmove, Inc. was struggling to source candidates who are not just skilled on paper but also in practice. Their clients were not satisfied with the candidates delivered to them, sighting the incompetency of candidates in meeting skills requirements. For example, a candidate hired for coding was not sufficiently skilled at it. This needed to be resolved soon.

Apprehensive about candidates’ identity:

One of the major problems was rooted in doubts about candidates’ real identities. Verticalmove, Inc. found it hard to confirm whether the assessment was being run through the same candidate who was formally registered. They were looking for a reliable proctoring system.

Redundancy and repetition to arrive at job-fit candidates

In order to finally stop their radar on a skill-fit candidate, Verticalmove, Inc. had to go through multiple iterations of assessments. It was after many cycles of tests that the company could shortlist job-ready candidates for their clients.

Low test attempts to invite ratio

Verticalmove, Inc. was struggling with an unsatisfactory attempt to invite ratio. They wanted not only to increase their extent of sourcing but also the proportion of attempts reaped from that sourcing.

In the midst of the Covid-19 aftermath, when businesses were rebuilding to keep pace with remote work and hiring candidates from across digital screens, iMocha’s skill assessment framework improved hiring efficiency significantly and helped Verticalmove, Inc. in the following ways:

Advanced proctoring verified candidates’ images and videos with high reliability, thereby improving the sourcing efficiency by 80%. The Window Violation Warning System enabled Verticalmove, Inc. to spare no extra chances to candidates who violated the test window more than once. They are now placing complete trust in the iMocha-assessed candidates.

Real-time data in addition to deep insights into candidate performance enabled Verticalmove, Inc. to back their decisions with solid evidence. This helped them to upscale their business to new standing. They are redefining their marketing strategies by leveraging technical insights that measure candidates’ performance to the last mile.

iMocha’s Customer Success Team helped Verticalmove, Inc. navigate through expired invites and revamp their visibility. They could recover from the sunk cost of expired invites by converting them into attempts. Thus, adding to their candidate sourcing.
