Texting can be a highly effective part of any recruitment strategy regardless of the candidate profile

Did you know 90 percent of consumers say they read a text message within minutes of receipt and on a daily basis and 71 percent of consumers use SMS at least once a day? Text messaging continues to be one of the most popular mobile applications, with 1.939 trillion messages (combined SMS and MMS) sent in 2016. (CTIA Wireless Snapshot 2017*)

Text messaging is an affordable and effective recruitment communication tool


BrightMove's integration with SimpleTexting puts this key communication channel at your fingertips

Once you have created your account with and purchased a text messaging plan, you will receive your SimpleTexting API key to send over to for activation.

Setting up SMS messaging inside your BrightMove dashboard only takes a few minutes. Be sure to have your BrightMove API key ready. Follow the step-by-step instructions online or feel free to contact our Customer Support team for assistance.

You can choose either a Blank SMS to compose a one-time message or create an SMS template to send a pre-composed message.

Once sent, the message will be logged in the Activities tab on the profile as "SMS Message Out" and the message status and contents are logged under the "Description" column. If successfully sent, the description box will start with "Success" and the message content will follow. When a recipient responds back to their SMS Message, the incoming response will then be logged in the Activities tab as "SMS Message In".

Considering how important "time to hire" is to our industry, it's easy to see the benefits of leveraging the SMS channel as part of a successful recruiting strategy. If you would like to join our many customers who are already experiencing positive results, reach out to now. If you would like to schedule a software demo, one of our product specialists will contact you shortly.
