Now more than ever, staffing firms are seeking better, more powerful ways to communicate with talent and clients. Here at Sense, we are constantly measuring and reviewing data to determine which modes of communication are most likely to be read and even more importantly -- to receive a response.

While you may have only placed anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred (or more), there are many, many more candidates waiting in your database for you to match them with the right opportunity. All you need is the right technology and processes to uncover them.
