The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world,” says Steve Jobs, the CEO and co-founder of Apple. There is no denying the fact that the success of any company directly depends on the manpower it employs. Recruiting, as such is very crucial and also a tough job. To make the process of recruiting easy, many recruiting software are coming up in the market. However, not all of these software are easy to use and comprehensive. With the aim to fill this gap in the recruitment software market, Recooty, a Jabalpur based startup has come up with a software to simplify and automate the hiring process for startups and SMEs.

How was Recooty started

The idea was born out of the personal inconveniences faced while hiring for an organization.

“we were struggling to hire the perfect candidates for our previous organization, our mail-boxes were choked by tons of irrelevant applications from unqualified candidates. There was no simple solution which could manage applications and make our hiring process simpler. Our company needed simple yet effective recruitment solutions to accomplish our recruitment goals”  Hardik recollects.

They tried many leading recruiting software which seemed useful at first glance but later they discovered that these software are not much helpful. Again, most of the recruiting software are either too complex or highly overpriced. So, finally they decided to build a simple tool which could manage applications, help in streamlining the company’s recruitment process and thus help in building a great team. Today Recooty is known as the world’s easiest recruiting software.
