Tope Awotona's Calendly, announced the acquisition of Prelude, a fast-growing recruiting operations platform designed to build an efficient hiring process. With this acquisition, recruiting teams and hiring leaders will optimize scheduling for interviewers and candidates, ultimately allowing small and medium size businesses to enterprise companies to achieve their talent acquisition goals. The addition of Prelude means that Calendly can accelerate its ambition to deliver deeper solutions for enterprise teams and organizations, serving as the one-stop shop for external scheduling.

“This acquisition is a testament to how Calendly’s profitable business model affords us the ability to pursue initiatives that will meet the growing demand of our customers,” said Tope Awotona, founder and CEO of Calendly.

Calendly will leverage Prelude for its enterprise customer base that are already using Calendly’s single scheduling platform for multiple departments. With a deeper interview scheduling solution that also integrates with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), the integration will remove the friction that exists within the candidate experience by changing how companies approach their hiring strategies. This also includes modernizing every candidate touchpoint, from communications and prep, to scheduling and logistics to interviewing.
