ERIN is a newer entry to the referral software world, but already has over thousands of employees using their system across companies big and small.

What's Inside

ERIN Review

ERIN allows your company to streamline the employee referral process through an intuitive mobile first tool.  Employees can sync their network to the platform to get referral recommendations which is a key hallmark of any modern referral technology.  Because their solution is mobile first, it's great for all types of referrals, including blue collar roles that are traditionally overlooked by most referral tech.

Key ERIN Features

  • Employee referral portal: ERIN works as a private network where employees can browse jobs, submit referrals, and track bonuses. Referrals are updated in ERIN as they move through your ATS (see Integrations).
  • 30-second referrals: Employees are able to send a job position to their contacts with two taps.
  • Hands-free referral management: ERIN is completely automated in the sense that any job added to your ATS is immediately created and set for referrals in their platform, if its integrated.

ERIN Implementation

ERIN's customer team would walk you through a checklist that is to be completed for every successful launch. This list looks at items like integrations needed, marketing materials, and customizations.

ERIN Customer Success

ERIN offers live chat support to every user, and that includes both employees and candidates. That way, you'll rest assured that candidates being referred are being tended to in case of issues as well. This vendor also offers direct support and dedicated customer success managers for enterprise customers.

ERIN integrates with over 25 ATS vendors, including ClearCompany, Greenhouse, iCIMS, JazzHR, and Taleo. As to social media, they can integrate with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Slack. They also support SSO authentication through Google Workplace, Active Directory, and SAML.

What to be aware of

ERIN Pricing

ERIN has a Free Forever plan with one admin account only. After that, their Growth plan starts at $499 per month (billed annually) and is for up to 500 employees. If that's not enough, but you're under 1,000 employees, they offer a plan called Scale at $875 per month. If you have more than 1,000 employees, then their Enterprise plan is for you, which would require a request for a quote.
