Mobile Recruitment Apps a Fantastic Success at Recruitment Agency Expo 2012
This year’s Recruitment Agency Expo took place at London Olympia on the 14th and 15th of February and proved to be extremely popular with among directors, recruiters, networkers and service providers alike.
KeyApps exhibited at a stand to promote their Mobile Recruitment App to recruiters as a business tool to increase placement potential and brand awareness, as well as client and candidate satisfaction.
Despite recent reports and concerns that the recruitment industry have been relatively slow in recognising the potential of having a mobile strategy, KeyApps’ product and services were received with excitement. The event was a fantastic opportunity for the team to present agencies, and even companies attending as service providers, with information about how mobile applications can promote business growth and visibility. KeyApps were also able to offer a fast turnaround on requests for branded demos of their applications.
“As the only Mobile App Development Specialist exhibiting, KeyApps informed professionals we had arranged to meet on the benefits of working together, and surprised and enlightened those not knowing what to expect.
“Offering a product built to establish, then enhance an agency’s ability to secure, place and interact with relevant candidates through our mobile technology made the occasion very special for myself and the KeyApps Team,” said John Edwards, Mobile Application Consultant.
Paul Higgins, KeyApps’ Sales Director (who gave a seminar at the event to highlight the importance of mobile technology within the recruitment agency) was amazed by the amount and quality of people who attended the Expo.
“The event was a tremendous success for KeyApps. Every conversation was inspiring as everyone who we spoke to was thinking about their own mobile recruiting strategy. It was refreshing to see and speak to so many recruiters who are on the ball when it comes to mobile. Representatives from the STR Group visited our busy stand and were delighted to see a fully branded and content rich app appear before their eyes.
“I was overwhelmed with the turn out for my seminar: The Battle for Talent goes Mobile. I hope the stats and advice gave some great insights on how to be mobile within recruitment, and that our demos proved that engaging on the go can be easy.”
The Recruitment Agency Expo offered a great opportunity for Paul Dawkins, KeyApps’ Managing Director, to put faces to names and meet clients and interested agencies in person. He commented, “The lively Expo was an exciting event to attend, and gave myself and the team an excellent opportunity to showcase what KeyApps offers. The popularity of our stand and interest from big names within the recruitment and commercial industries are a sign of things to come for the company. We are confident that our mobile recruitment app will soon make us the first choice for recruiters developing their mobile strategy.”
KeyApps would like to thank and congratulate Blue Water Events for organising a fantastic event as well as all those who attended and visited our stand.
