New Companion App!

Revolutionizing the Recruitment Experience

We are thrilled to announce one of the most significant updates and product improvements for the Fall 2024 Recruitment season: the new Companion App!

Introducing the New Companion App

After reviewing your critical feedback, the Phired Up team spent the last few months rebuilding and updating key features of the Companion App. This new app is focused on an enhanced user experience and introducing new features. Our goal with these updates is to ensure a smooth recruitment experience that prioritizes clear communication, eliminates confusion, and promotes confidence among potential members. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new!


1. New Design:

The new design provides a streamlined experience, making it easier to navigate through the Companion App! You’ll find that the refreshed design, colors, and logos provide better alignment with the Phired Up brand and offer a modern and cohesive look.

2. Message of the Day (MOTD) Enhancement:

The Message of the Day feature makes it even easier for your council admin to directly connect with students who are in the recruitment process. The update only allows the council admin to customize this communication, eliminating confusion and ensuring clarity!

3. Enhanced Preference Confirmation for Single Intentional Preferences:

For communities following a RFM-style recruitment, we’ve introduced a new feature. When a PNM does not maximize their selections after Preference Round, they will receive an extra message to confirm their decision to submit a Single Intentional Preference and ensure clarity moving forward.

4. Updated Council Info Tab:

We’ve enhanced the Council Information tab to now display your council’s email address and website information. This improvement aims to streamline communication between participants and your council’s Administrative Recruitment Team, making it easier for students to reach out directly for support.

5. And so much more!

From streamlined scheduling to recording notes of their recruitment experience to council’s linking videos for chapters that appear directly in the Companion App for participants to view – the new companion app is centered around offering the most organized and simplified recruitment experience so potential members can focus on finding their people faster!
