R-L (Judith Clarke, Alexis Twigg, Daniel Bowles)The TribePad team accepted the accolade in front of a full house at the spectacular Palace Hotel in Manchester; in the latest in a string of successes for the Sheffield-based firm.  The Innovation category is always hotly contested, so the success is another welcome boost for the expanding business and comes just weeks after the software was dubbed ‘One to Watch’ at the Cloudex awards.

TribePad provides an award-winning candidate management system for leading brands including the BBC, Tesco, Bupa, Pizza Hut and KFC.  A leading provider of SaaS systems for the attraction, recruitment and engagement of candidates for over 45,000 recruiters worldwide; TribePad is multilingual and operates in over 125 countries with candidates from 198.

The Digital Entrepreneur Awards are the longest-standing national tech awards in the UK, showcasing the very best of online entrepreneurship that Britain has to offer.  The awards celebrate the best of a rapidly growing industry and have been recognising Britain’s finest online talent for over 12 consecutive years.

Dean Sadler, CEO of TribePad said: “We were delighted to be shortlisted, so to come away with the award when up against some truly incredible businesses, is a real honour, and we hope testament to TribePad’s offering.

“Recognition like this, coupled with an expanding client base means we are finding new platforms and routes to market all the time and are well on our way to positioning TribePad at the very forefront of this growing industry.”

TPSadler also told MARGINALIA: “When it comes to technology, we first and foremost listen to the end user. Some people can write a great CV and make it look smart. Others can’t but can produce a great video or graphic. Others have nothing to “say” on a CV but everything to say when put in front of a camera.

“Personality comes across in many ways and we develop solutions to enable the candidate to shine using the method that they’re most comfortable with.

“When using the Video Interviewing platform for example, we take an audio transcript from the video in near real-time, and allow the recruiter to search across it. So they could ask “Show me all the candidates that answered question No.3 with: London, New York or Paris.
We then take their normal CV, their video and audio streams and any supporting documentation including any social footprint they have (eg. social media platforms) and build up a more holistic view of the candidate. We look at their interests, hobbies, to name but a few. This method helps recruiters to find the best talent possible and the candidate to find their dream job.”
