Analyst Insight

Appcast is a leading programmatic job advertising provider focused on helping companies streamline advertising, reduce spend, and achieve ROI. Unlike traditional job advertising models that are slow and time-consuming, programmatic solves an immediate need for companies today- greater efficiency and higher quality. Appcast’s differentiator is that it provides both world-class, leading technology with deep domain expertise in talent acquisition and recruitment advertising. Appcast provides technology backed by a team committed to driving performance, aligned with customers’ needs and hiring goals. Appcast offers a suite of three solutions to suit the needs of today’s talent acquisition teams: Xcelerate, Premium, and Global.

Appcast Xcelerate is a job exchange platform and does not require companies to pay software fees. Instead, they only pay when someone applies for a job. Xcelerate ensures that job ads attract qualified candidates for all open jobs. It uses data and algorithms to determine where – among the 10,000+ job sites in their network – job ads will reach the best candidates. Xcelerate’s programmatic rules ensure that budget is only spent on jobs that need more candidates.

Appcast Premium is an enterprise enhanced services platform for companies hiring at scale and looking for a fully programmatic model. Whereas Xcelerate provides more of a self-service offering (still with dedicated support from Appcast), Premium is the “full service” option in which Appcast shoulders the burden of managing an employer’s entire job advertising program across all possible candidate sources. The idea with Premium is that Appcast are truly the job advertising experts and when partnering closely and gaining deep understanding of the client’s needs, they will achieve the best possible results for that client. This solution is really a strategic partnership, fueled by customized data insights and industry-leading expertise.

Appcast Global is a solution provided in partnership with The Network that reaches candidates in 138 countries and distributes jobs across 60+ leading local sites. The key benefits to global recruiting teams are that they work with one partner to facilitate and drastically simplify job postings across different currencies, contracts, and pricing models.
