Oxbow Executive Search, who describe themselves as Emerging Market Search Specialists have teamed up with Saypage the video-enabled meetings platform to launch an online interview portal.
"When tasked with creating an online interviews platform for Oxbow, it was actually a case of removing Saypage functionality rather than developing anything new," said a Saypage spokesperson. "Oxbow wanted a simple-to-use, lightweight system that would work on all PCs and Macs, and that was a professional, branded service, distinct from existing online communications services intended more for friends and family. Importantly, the solution needed to allow for scheduled appointments and interview playback. Oxbow decided to use Saypage as an alternative to Skype for all these reasons plus the potential for call anonymity and the total lack of footprint left after an interview has taken place."
Since going into beta two months ago, Saypage has already handled over half a million minutes of voice and video calls on desktops alone. Due to go live in January 2013, Saypage will also be accessible via mobile communication apps, with partners being able to order their own versions of the same for iOS and Android platforms.
Saypage is free of set-up and hosting fees for partners wishing to charge their customers calling tariffs. In such arrangements, Saypage retains 10% of overall call revenues. For partners wishing to create video call center portals where video, voice and messaging interactions are to be entirely free, there is also no set-up fee. However, in these instances Saypage charges around $600/month based on anticipated usage, which covers platform licensing, hosting and 24/7 support, plus the recording and storage of calls.
