Does Your Company Need Truck Driver Recruiting Software?

For some truck driver recruiters, modern recruiting tactics rely heavily on past successes and failures. Basically, recruiters rely on ‘this is how we’ve always done it’ and ‘gut feeling’ mentalities to inform and define long-term strategic processes. Over the past few years, however, the SaaS (Software as a Service) model that successfully transformed previously stagnant industries like healthcare, retail, and finance came to the trucking and logistics industry.

Truck driver recruiting software is designed to improve recruiting processes, streamline application times, get and keep drivers on the road, and streamline internal recruiting workflows. Implementing a truck driver recruiting solution doesn’t mean replacing in-person resources or setting up automated interviews. Instead, this modern recruiting software is meant to enhance and compliment the efforts of truck driver recruiters to make them more effective and more efficient.

If you find yourself answering ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, your team is more than likely ready for a truck driver recruiting platform:

Does your team struggle with thinking of creative and innovative ways to reach new drivers?

After a while, simply posting new job listings on sites like Monster or Indeed won’t help hit your quota of qualified applicants. A truck driver recruiting platform allows recruiters to track and measure how successful advertising channels are (including things like social media and driver referrals) so your team can put advertising dollars behind channels that actually work.

Do drivers go silent or ‘dark’ during the application or interview process?

We all hate being ghosted, and having drivers go dark during the hiring process is the worst kind of ghosting. Many times, this happens because the driver either found a new opportunity or there was an issue with recruiter follow-ups. Truck driver recruiting platforms ensure that nothing slips through the cracks in the recruiting process and helps speed things up to beat the competition.

Are you looking for new ways to increase conversion rates for drivers in your recruiting funnel?

If your team is having trouble converting new drivers, it’s time to think outside of the box. Recruiters can leverage truck driver recruiting software to set up nurture campaigns, expedite pre-hire processes like verifications of employment, and deliver a more driver-focused recruiting experience.

Has your team realized that internal processes are becoming too bulky and inefficient?

In many cases, recruiters realizing that their processes are clunky and out of date is the catalyst for looking for a new truck driver recruiting platform. A SaaS-based solution ensures that all driver-related notes and documents are correctly organized and labeled, increases accountability, and even tracks recruiting metrics for better decision making.
