Technical screening is an important process to complete. It benefits the employer, candidate and most especially the recruiter. It informs the hiring manager of the recruiter's abilities, that the recruiter knows their job and can match candidates better than the next recruiter. This is a big differentiator in today's recruiting market. Its important for the candidate - no one wants to waste their time going for an interview where they have a diminutive chance to compete.
For the recruiter - the better you fine tune your technical screening process, the more efficient you are at matching candidates skills and experience to your clients. You save time - there's no sense reviewing, scheduling, and doing all the work involved in sending four candidates for interviews when one could suffice.
