Learn Why Grayscale is a Compelling Alternative to TextRecruit

Searching for a TextRecruit alternative? See how Grayscale stacks up.

We know you want to find the best messaging capabilities for your team, so we created this overview of Grayscale's key features to show you why our product is a compelling alternative to TextRecruit.


Grayscale bakes texting right into your ATS

Texting is the way we all communicate in our daily lives, and it's time we start using this powerful channel to engage with talent. But when it's not baked into your ATS, it can be a terrible recruiter experience.

Let's take a quick look at Grayscale's core texting functionality and how it compares to TextRecruit.


Texting with Candidates

With Grayscale's Chrome extension, you can text candidates directly from within your ATS. As you navigate between candidate profiles, the extension automatically updates to show you the current candidate's conversation history.


Dedicated, Local Phone Numbers

Each member of your team will have a dedicated, local number for the market they recruit in. This is important, because local numbers boost response rates. You'll be able to pick your area code during onboarding.


Bulk Text Messaging

With Grayscale, you can send personalized text messages in bulk. Select a list or upload a CSV file, craft one message, and off you go.

The candidate will receive a text that's personalized and individual (they won't be on a group with others).


Scheduled Messages

Want to send a text in the future? No problem. Pick a date and time to have your message delivered. This ensures the candidate gets your message at the right time, maximizing your response rates.


Unlimited Texting

Unlike other products, Grayscale has no limit on the number of text messages you can send through the platform. So you and your team can start texting and never look back. 🏃


No Character Limit

Don't you hate when pesky character limits prevent you from sending the text you want? Yeah, us to. 😅 That's why Grayscale doesn't limit the number of characters for your text.


One Consolidated View

How annoying is it to get a candidate all the way to the end of your process, just to realize they're also in process for another job at your company. 😱

We designed Grayscale so recruiters can easily see if a candidate is being engaged with another member of the team.

We consolidate all texts into one thread, with your messages in blue and your colleagues in green, to help quickly surface duplicative efforts.


Text On-the-Go

Need to take the conversation on the go? Receive notifications and text from your mobile device so you don't miss a beat. Everything is recorded and organized within the candidate profile.


Grayscale drives more candidates to your jobs with Text-for-Jobs

Looking for ways to drive more pre-qualified candidates to your jobs?

You can advertise your Text-for-Jobs campaigns on social media, at store locations, hiring events, on campus -- the possibilities are endless. Candidates text a keyword (e.g. "JOBS") to a short code number (e.g. 87943) to chat about openings.

This entire experience is automated and works for you 24/7, engaging candidates and driving qualified candidates to your jobs.
