A more efficient way to handle job interview

My friend migrated to Canada. He applied for a job as a software developer. There is a big demand for this skill in Canada.

He told me that their process is different from Singapore. They take the following steps. 

a) The recruiter telephone the applicant and have a phone interview. 
b) The applicant has to do some coding assessment online.
c) The applicant is then invited for a site interview.

I remarked that this is a more efficient way to recruit people. 

I asked my friend if he agrees with my view. He said - yes. Some work sites are quite far away, so the process adopted in Canada is helpful.

The usual method used in Singapore is to invite people for or or more rounds of site interview. This method is time consuming for both the recruiter and the applicant. 

We need to change our practice and adopt a more efficient method.
