Reduce telecommunications expenses by at least 50%.


Cut processing times by 50%.

iQor, a global managed services provider specializing in technology-enabled BPO solutions, operates in over 40 cTo achieve these, they decided to test an entirely automated recruitment flow, eliminating all manual intervention. iQor's vision was to manage recruitment ramp-ups with their existing team, allowing recruiters to focus on higher-value tasks rather than routine follow-ups. Gone are the days when recruiters spent hours on the phone reminding candidates of the following steps or missing documents.

A significant change in this digital transformation was the adoption of TalkScore, a language assessment tool. This innovative solution allows iQor to evaluate a candidate’s English proficiency directly through Facebook Messenger with just a few audio responses. This streamlined approach increased candidate conversion rates and highlighted the most qualified applicants.

Hiring managers now benefit from comprehensive language skills reports and interview recordings, enabling them to provide feedback efficiently and determine the best placement for each candidate. This transformation has allowed iQor to disposition candidates in minutes, significantly accelerating their recruitment process and ensuring they place the right talent in the right roles swiftly.

No human intervention is required from application submission to the final interview. iQor turned this vision into reality by integrating all their sourcing channels—such as organic Facebook traffic and walk-in applications—into their Talkpush system. Candidates navigate through automated pre-screening, fully custom assessments, and interviews. The always-needed human intervention is carefully introduced only to review and finalize decisions. This shift accelerates the workflow and ensures uniformity in evaluating candidates.
