The product involves recruiting and sourcing under tight timeframes, for many similar positions at the same time. It is often seen in various industries such as retail, hospitality, fast-moving consumer goods, call centres, logistics, and manufacturing.

It may impact business productivity, during those critical periods of revenue generation, if such recruitment requirements are not addressed.
High volume hiring (HVH) projects usually see extremely high applicant volumes, but typically have few internal resources to handle them. In the traditional applicant tracking system, there have been cases where the employer brand and application process got negatively impacted by the candidates. This is due to impersonal email automation and upfront screening which led to many application withdrawals at the time, affecting the quality of hire, recruitment productivity and cost, turnover, and overall business growth.

Super Retail Group is an Australian listed significant player in the HVH space in Australia with hires across four core brands: Supercheap Auto, BCF, Rebel and Macpac. It is among the top 10 Australian retailers with around 12,000 team members.
For both the clients, LiveHire technology has become the central platform for unified candidate data and hiring end-to-end.
