Virtual Interview Software From Novasyte Makes Hiring a Breeze for Medical Device Companies

Clients Reaping Benefits of Higher Quality of Recruits and Reduced Time to Hiring

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2010) -  Novasyte, Inc., a leading provider of sales and clinical solutions for the medical device industry, today announced the availability of Virtual Interview Software (VIS) for personnel involved in the hiring process. Leveraging the ability to conduct face-to-face interviews remotely can dramatically improve the quality of interviewees for companies as well as reduce the time of having to sift through unsuitable candidates.

VIS was launched in response to a strong market need for some means to improve the hiring process. Everyone from heads of Human Resources to Vice Presidents of Sales struggles with the time and energy spent in sourcing the top talent for their organization. With the recent economic downturn, it was more important than ever that every new hire was one who would be a perfect fit for a company.

With VIS, companies can conduct first round interviews remotely using a webcam to simulate an in-person meeting. Hiring executives can use VIS to quickly eliminate unsuitable candidates and decide which ones to advance to subsequent rounds.

The benefits of VIS include:

Higher quality of candidates -- users of VIS benefit in passing on candidates that have already survived the first cut to managers.

Increased throughput -- VIS helps increase the throughput of the hiring process from the first to the second round of interviews.

Time savings -- hiring managers reduce or eliminate the need for time spent on shuffling through piles of resumes searching for indicators of qualified individuals. VIS takes the guesswork out of hiring.

Environmentally sustainable -- virtual interviews eliminate the need for traveling by air or car to meet interviewees for first rounds, reducing the overall impact on the environment.

"Virtual Interview Software made the interview process so much easier compared to other recruiters," says June Wehner of Hawaii, a Sales Specialist who was placed with the one of the largest global medical device companies through the use of VIS. "It was so much more effective to be able to see the interviewer and interact in a way that was more personal. Using VIS simulated the feel of an actual interview. It was extremely easy to use and connect to start the session."

"Virtual Interview Software is the right product at the right time for medical device companies," says Andrew Strohmeier, VP of Executive Search at Novasyte. "Every hiring manager is challenged with helping their organizations do more with less. The numerous proven benefits of VIS can immediately help companies find the best and the brightest in the shortest amount of time possible."

"Combined with our Executive Search and Clinical Professional Services divisions, VIS has been a big competitive differentiator for Novasyte."

VIS was introduced to the market for the first time in 2007 and since then has been used in over 5,000 virtual interviews.
