Leading e-recruitment software specialist, eploy, has further improved its CV Creation Tool to allow users to instantly create fully formatted and branded CVs from an original CV, and insert a cover page. The new Tool also enables recruiters to edit agency CV's directly through their web browser without having to download them.

Paul Burgess, eploy's Managing Director says: "With the current economic climate creating an abundance of candidate's registering with recruitment consultancies, systems that can facilitate and speed up administration processes are crucial, and importantly enable consultants to focus on servicing the needs of their client."

The CV Creation Tool has been designed by eploy so that recruiters can create different versions of fully formatted, branded agency CVs depending on the type of role the candidate is applying to, and vary the information they send to the client. By linking with eploy's state-of-the-art CV importing and parsing technology, fully formatted agency CVs can also be created from an original word document within seconds.

Paul adds: "Utilising these simple tools in today's recruitment market, we believe, could mean the difference between getting a candidate recognised by an end client, or not. Our 11-year experience shows us that sending concise, detailed information to an end-client about a potential candidate significantly increases an agency's chance of making a placement. By listing a candidate's skills that are specific to the role at the beginning of the CV for example, will grab the reader's attention straight away, and they are then more likely to continue reading through the CV.

Clients have also reported that this feature really helps when merging out candidate CVs to speculative prospects, with all seeing a marked improvement on mail merge responses," Paul concludes.

Eploy® now allows any type of agency CV to be created as detailed below.
