Vervoe vs Sapia (PredictiveHire)

The main difference between Vervoe and Sapia is that Sapia tests for inferred skills, whereas Vervoe tests for and validates on the job skills. 

Sapia’s product is a standalone chatbot with video interviewing functionality; which limits the offering to text based and video questions. Questions like ‘Tell us about a time you had to solve a problem creatively, deal with conflict or manage time’ are far less predictive than giving candidates the opportunity to demonstrate these skills. 

While this is positioned as saving time at the top of the funnel, it is ultimately just a slight improvement of offline situational interviewing – testing recall and knowledge, rather than application of skills.

Vervoe’s immersive question types and skill assessments; from customer service to coding environments allows you to test this at any stage of the funnel – all without compromising the candidate experience. 98% of candidates love Vervoe because they get the best opportunity to show off their skills and shine.

Sapia’s chatbot uses the HEXACO model of personality, looking for keywords just like a resume parser would in candidate responses and language that signal particular traits. This could sway teams to hire similar personality profiles to that of their current team, and its format does not inherently promote diversity and inclusion as much as Vervoe does.

See a side-by-side comparison of Vervoe and Sapia, formerly known as PredictiveHire,  to help you make the best choice and decide which one is best for your business needs.

We're biased, hear what our users have to say


"Love the software, use it for hiring all the time"

The ability to share automated interview links. All I need to do is set up the interview process/questions and JDs and share the link across my social channels and groups. I get applications and interview results right in my inbox. Saves so much time! questions, Excel spreadsheets to question and grade applicants. Obviously good old fashioned face to face interviews that absorbed weeks of time of the most senior people in the business.

Vervoe enables us to evaluate whether someone can actually do the job before we hire them. It’s far more effective and all of the hires through Vervoe have been far more capable from the getgo.


I appreciate the flexibility to create a wide range of questions. The ability to create a spreadsheet and have applicants modify it is key for us.


"Next-gen recruitment"

It’s a very easy and almost obvious way of improving the recruitment process. We can very effectively and efficiently get to know candidates before we make significant time investments in the recruitment process. This is particularly helpful in a start-up environment where resources are spread thin.

"Everything at a glance!"

I’m currently in the process of hiring for multiple projects, so I took a chance on this software. I haven’t used it long, but I’m already in love with how easy it is to set up and use! Keeping all the information in one place is wonderful, and it’s so easy to customize messages to go out to the applicants automatically. Vervoe is a wonderful time saver!

"I Love everything about this SaaS. the UI is superb and easy progression of the interviews assured"

Streamlined interview processing of potential outsourced staff make this whole process a breeze! When interviewing for a position on my staff, I have to outsource to many countries throughout the world. Different time zones and languages can make this very time consuming, anything that can make this less stressful and lower my time spent, win my vote every time.
