ASLAN

It starts with an Other-Centered Approach.  Serving and selling 60 customers a day is never easy. Asking your reps to change is even harder, but change can happen. Conversion rates, average order size, and the overall customer experience can improve. Our approach to changing the way your telesales or customer service reps serve their customer is centered around one philosophy: Selling should be the highest form of serving. It's about meeting needs, stated and unstated, not about manipulation. Reframing selling is where we start in our call center training programs. It’s the key to unlocking the desire of your reps to sell and to serve while enhancing the receptivity of your customers.

HRMC (Human Resource Management Center)

HRMC is focused on helping call centers find the FASTEST (and most intelligent) way to final interviews!  Its flagship product, HRMC AcclaimSM, helps contact centers break free from outdated, resume-centric, hiring processes and leverage the power of artificial intelligence to quickly identify the best candidates and automatically schedule them for next steps.

From the candidate’s perspective, the process is highly engaging.  Whether from a computer, tablet, or mobile device, candidates gain a realistic job preview, are questioned about core qualifications and experience, and participate in challenging, work-related assessments.  Successful candidates are then asked to progress to the next step in the process.  All this is typically done in a SINGLE, 20-25 minute session! (this means losing fewer qualified candidates)

From an employer’s perspective, Acclaim opens the door to a wider audience of potential job candidates by making the entire process “resume optional.” Employers work with HRMC to taylor the process from beginning to end… and they have insight and control over the process from initial job posting through candidate scheduling.  Acclaim also features, a series of powerful, on-demand reports.  Whether it’s querying your database for candidates with specific skills, or performing a detailed adverse impact analysis, we’ve got you covered!

To experience a demo of HRMC Acclaim or to discuss your specific needs with a call center hiring expert, call HRMC at 800-749-4960 or email us at sales@hrmc.com

HRMC also offers a host free articles and white papers related to artificial intelligence in the hiring process.
