“[Calendly's] Prelude came at a pivotal moment of growth for us. Before we spent almost all day scheduling and rescheduling interviews until Prelude increased our scheduling speed and automated some of our core processes, it enabled us to take on even more and expand our business impact.”
Recruiting Manager, Coordination and Operations, Airtable
"We absolutely needed a tool like Calendly's Prelude to scale our business. Being able to drive our decisions based on data, being able to influence our stakeholders and showcasing also our work, the many tasks that our schedulers and our talent ops are doing that are often overlooked.”
Global Head of Programs, Thoughtworks
“When I look back at where we were pre-Prelude and then compare it to our current recruiting process, it feels like we’ve advanced light years. Working on high-value candidate experience projects is a passion that I didn’t feel I had the time or resources to commit to before, and one that truly makes an impact in how candidates feel about working at Policygenius.”
Recruiting Operations Specialist, Policygenius
“The team is always willing to jump on a call, listen to us, and partner on solutions and strategies to improve our candidate experience. We were then and are now excited to partner on the next iterations of the Prelude platform.”
Manager, Recruiting Operations, Samsara
“[Calendly's Prelude] has completely transformed our processes … most importantly, [we can deliver] a memorable candidate experience that sets us apart from our industry peers."
