After deciding to work with WayUp, recruiting teams are eager to get up and running quickly. With many software solutions, long and complicated implementation periods can be daunting and hard to manage. As a result, one of the most common questions we are asked is about implementation of WayUp. Read on to learn just how easy it is to get started sourcing qualified and diverse candidates.
From the Kick-Off meeting to the official Go-Live date, it takes about 2 weeks for the average WayUp customer to be fully up and running and ready to source. Even better, implementation is straightforward. There are a few basic pieces of information we collect during the process, but the good news is that getting started with WayUp does not require any resources from your engineering team.
There are 3 main tasks to complete during your WayUp implementation.
Your WayUp Company Profile functions as your early-career recruiting hub. It’s fully customizable, so we’ll ask you to provide your brand logo, colors, and images, as well as company details and fun facts that help to paint a picture of what it’s like to work at your company. Typically, both the talent acquisition and marketing teams will contribute to building the Company Profile, so it’s important to determine who you’ll need to collaborate with internally to make Company Profile creation a smooth process. You’re also able to update your company profile at any time after your onboarding is complete, so your page can evolve alongside your brand.
WayUp is a powerful sourcing tool, and we want to make sure your team is equipped with the knowledge they need to make the most of it! We’ll ask for an hour of time from you and anyone on your team who will be using WayUp. During this hour, we’ll train your users on how to use the Sourcing tool and Campaign Builder functionality so you’ll be able to quickly find the candidates you need and message those candidates at scale to promote your open roles and upcoming events.
This step sounds complicated, but it’s easier than many people think. You’ll work with our team to identify the most efficient way for WayUp to ingest your jobs. This is an important piece of the puzzle in order for candidates to apply for your roles and be routed over to your ATS or CRM.
