1 The Client
Ducknowl is a SaaS company based in Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 2019, Ducknowl’s goals are to solve the recruiting problems for staffing companies and larger employers.
2 The Challenge
Founders saw a problem in the recruiting space, when recruiters post a job and get tons of resumes, it becomes very difficult to screen and asses the candidates. Recruiters spend hours in reading the resumes, calling candidates, scheduling video interviewees, conducting skill assessment to identify the right candidates for the job. Several of these are repeat tasks and recruiters kill man hours in doing repeat tasks. Available software’s in the market are fragmented, doing only one step of the process. Founders saw the problem as an opportunity to build a complete end to end screening and assessment software for recruiters. Founding team reached out to Simpalm to use their expertise in SaaS product development.
