Interact helped solve that problem by providing a solution that could help them hire reliable developers at 1/5th of the price normal consultants charged.
Around.io approached Xobin in July 2016 via a
reference. They had been engaging multiple
consultants for a while but had no success.
Their key priority was to have experienced developers take their product to the next level. Being a bootstrapped , they had cost constraints too. They came across Interact and saw the customized assessment for their required position. Interact offered speed with precision at a price that was a market beater.
Interact was already being used by organizations like Fusion Charts, Tally to hire their Coding Ninjas. This gave them the required validation of Interact’s caliber to screen and deliver high quality developers.
Being a bootstrapped company, Around.io had a
unique problem. They were finding it difficult to
attract the right talent and converting them.
Engaging with multiple recruitment agencies was
expensive and time consuming without much
Using Interact, Around.io could communicate with candidates and do a deep assessment on the candidates’ Skills . The process was both swift and efficient.
For a senior role, Around.io saw a much higher rate
of conversion with the Interact Assessments, ensuring
everyone who applied had a positive experience.
Interact also solved another of Around.io’s problem with the assessment, making sure that the quality of the developers applying was always up to the mark, reducing the effort required by Natwar.
