How SkillSurvey works
The process is simple and the results are fast.
The system automatically generates an email or a text message which is sent to references from your organization. The email or text includes a brief description of the reference request and a link to your reference questionnaire.
In a few minutes, references can complete the questionnaire. Each reference is asked to verify their identity at the start of the process. After submitting the form online, references are directed to a thank you page, which can be fully customized and branded, and can be used to generate new business leads.
As soon as the questionnaire is completed, reference information is available. You can easily access this the reference responses in a format that makes sense for you and your clients: responses can be printed, downloaded or emailed.
- Step 1: Enter candidate information
- Step 2: Requests emailed or texted automatically
- Step 3: References complete questionnaire
- Step 4: Access reference responses immediately
How long does this take to get up and running and what resources are needed?
Implementation is very simple and takes little effort on your part. Since the system is a cloud-based solution, there’s no costly software to buy or download. Users simply need a login to access the system, time to configure the settings and options to meet your needs and can be up and running within a few hours.
