Judith du Plessis, HR Operations Project Manager at Coral commented: “The new group-wide career site and recruitment system has had a great response from candidates and our colleagues in the business. Our Hiring Managers have found the Eploy software simple to use and have embraced the system. The registration and application process is very quick and even in the few weeks that we have had the site up and running we have seen an increase in candidate numbers. Eploy were a great partner and supported us throughout the design and implementation of the project.”

“Gala Coral Group have raised the bar for online recruitment”, commented Eploy’s Chief Technology Officer, Chris Bogh. “The group has been able to replace multiple systems with a complete, end-to-end recruitment platform that provides new benefits across every stage of the recruitment journey for all stakeholders – candidates, hiring managers, agencies and the group’s recruitment team. By moving to Eploy, onboarding is no longer a separate system – it’s now fully incorporated into the candidate portal and vastly improved using Eploy’s secure Digital Signing technology.

Chris Bogh continued: “Key to the success of the project has been integrating with third party systems using Eploy’s latest-generation Extend interface. ‘Extend’ enables the rapid creation of plugins that can be dropped into the appropriate workflow stages within Eploy’s Applicant Tracking System – in this case incorporating video interviewing from Powermeeter. We developed Extend to enable ‘single sign-on’ – removing the need for using different login credentials for each connected system. It also means third party systems can be delivered straight through the Eploy interface and provide a single view of all recruitment data and analytics. We are delighted to have worked on this project with the team at Gala Coral and look forward to supporting them in achieving their future recruitment objectives.”
