Please note that this is a Business and Enterprise plan exclusive feature.

Managing multiple platforms and remembering passwords can be time-consuming and inconvenient. With the Single Sign-On (SSO) integration, you can streamline your login process and enhance security.

🔑 Simplifying Access with Single Sign-On Integration

Recruit CRM's Single Sign-On Integration allows you to access your account by using your existing credentials from various identity providers (IDPs) supporting the OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocol, including Google, Microsoft Azure, and Okta.

This means no more juggling multiple passwords or struggling to remember which login credentials to use. With SSO, you can log in effortlessly and save your valuable time.
