- Deliver the best user experience possible and help casting directors who manage thousands of applicants quickly and efficiently find the best person for each role.
- Provide a personalized, customized, and branded in-app experience.
“With Nylas, we’ve built a far superior user experience that helps casting directors who manage high volumes of applicants find the best person for the role much faster,” said Kaius Meskanen, CEO of Choicely. “It took us less than a month to integrate email and calendar functionality into our platform, allowing us to refocus our technical resources on growing our business across Europe and expanding into Hollywood and North America.”
“Our work with Choicely is a perfect example of the power of APIs and the impact they can have not just for technology companies, but for all types of businesses, including ones that are producing some of the most popular global TV shows and events,” said Marc Power, VP of International, Nylas. “Not only have we been able to help Choicely build more robust functionality into their platform, we were able to save them valuable time and costs.
