Onboarding Platform

Candidates and recruiters love the experience they have with Pinpoint. But once the offer’s signed, they get handed off to a clunky HRIS or, even worse, get emailed 25 attachments to print, complete, scan and return.

Is that really what you want the first impression of your organization to be?

For the last three years, recruitment teams have been asking us to bring out an employee onboarding platform that gives candidates and recruiters the same great experience they get from our core ATS.

For the last 18 months we’ve been keeping it all under wraps and building just that.

Today, it launches!

It’s already proving wildly popular with our beta users. To make sure we have the capacity to give you the same exceptional Customer Success experience you got when you bought our ATS, we’re rolling it out slowly and we’ve started a waitlist.


Click here to join the live waitlist now. When it’s your turn, we’ll schedule a demo, confirm your price (with a special discount for our existing customers), and you’ll have 14 days to decide whether to use your place or give it to the next person in the queue.

Add Video and Images to Job Descriptions

Sure, there are more candidates in the market, but it’s still the job of recruiters to attract and hire the best person for the job.

Today’s candidates care about security, transparency, flexibility, and purpose. Job descriptions that attract the best applicants are honest, compelling adverts—not a list of requirements.

That’s why, alongside the hiring process and hiring manager profile, you can now include videos and images in your job descriptions through Pinpoint—making it easier than ever to show candidates what it’s really like to be part of your team.

Block Repeating Applicants

Some candidates are a bit too keen and apply for the same job multiple times resulting in lost time for recruiters who have to review every application. (We’ve all been there!)

When you enable the newBlock Duplicate Applicants feature, Pinpoint automatically removes duplicate applicants, and emails them to let them know that their duplicate application has been removed.

API Improvements

We invest a lot of time building integrations with other best-in-class products.

In the past, it’s been mostly up to us to build those integrations but, this month, we’ve made significant improvements to our API that make it easier than ever for those third parties to build integrations with Pinpoint. Our hope is for this to accelerate the growth of our ecosystem of integrations—making it easier to manage your whole recruitment process with Pinpoint.

Careers site builder improvements

If you’re not getting your candidate experience right, you’ll never attract the best candidates. That’s why we decided to make building your careers site a core part of what we offer at Pinpoint.

This month we’ve launched a bunch of new components—giving you more options to get your message across. These options include:

  • Secondary navigation

  • Carousel cards

  • Customisable footer

  • Job filter block

  • And the ability to create a “draft” careers site so you’re not editing the live version as you make changes

Redesigned Templates Manager

Emails, scorecards, workflows—we built Pinpoint to be super flexible so that you can make it work the way you want. The launch of our new Templates Manager makes it easier than ever to create, manage, and edit your templates. You’ll find the new Templates Manager in the Settings menu.
