Customers Can Take Advantage of WeChat's Over 468 Million Active Users

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2015) - eQuest today announced that it has completed its integration with WeChat, China's largest standalone messaging application. As of December 2014, WeChat had over 468 million active users; with 70 million outside of China.

The job delivery service not only allows eQuest customers the ability to send their job posting alerts to their WeChat account subscribers but also provides candidate link-backs directly from WeChat to company career sites for resume submittal. Precious source-coding data is part of the integration allowing companies to measure its posting performance and effectiveness.

Global organizations are taking advantage of the fast growth of WeChat's users by establishing official accounts that cater to interested viewers. Companies can utilize their official accounts for branding and awareness, and most recently, listing job posting content. With their official accounts, companies are allowed to push feeds to subscribers, interact with subscribers and provide them with instant customer service.

It can exchange contacts with people nearby via Bluetooth, as well as providing various features for contacting people at random if desired, and integration with social networking services such as those run by Facebook and Sina Weibo .
