eploy® has kicked off the New Year with a trio of new contract wins in the agency sector. Recruiter's Care@, Straco and Morgan Jones have all selected eploy®'s web-based recruitment software solution to support, and further enhance the services they provide to their clients and candidates.
According to Paul Burgess, the Managing Director of eploy®, the last 12-18 months have seen more and more agencies like Care@, Straco and Morgan Jones choose online recruitment solutions in preference to 'traditional' client server systems. He explains; "The current economic climate has forced many recruitment agencies to evaluate their business and find ways in which they can reduce costs yet still provide innovative added value services for their clients."
"Reviewing technologies has been a fundamental part of this strategic process," confirmed Paul. "They want a system that will help strengthen client communications and promote transparency; one that will bring all the parties involved in the recruitment process together by allowing them to perform their individual tasks on their part of the recruitment process. Only an online central recruitment system can provide the variety of niche web services needed to coordinate the different users involved in the recruitment process."
Paul adds; "The benefits of this are that clients are able to have full visibility and remote input into the recruitment process. Candidates too, can make use of online registration, apply for jobs and even have access to resources such as diaries to arrange their own interview times and track the status of their application.
"The growth in online also goes a lot further than this," says Paul. "Agencies now understand the benefits of scalable online recruitment software that not only integrates with their own website, but with a multitude of advertising and candidate acquisition channels to automate a wide range of recruitment processes that have previously been either resource intensive or impossible to manage with traditional technology platforms.
This also now extends to the need to have remote access to the central system, due to the advancements in mobile technology and the popularity of home working. Automated communications with mobile technologies via RSS feeds and SMS services for example, is another. Also popular is the ability for the system to integrate with other Web Services such as Job Boards, Social Networking Sites and CV Libraries so that users have the ability to post jobs out to the net instantly and have access to hundreds of thousands of CVs."
"Only true web browser based systems like eploy® can offer this flexibility and enable different web services to coordinate and make use of each other's functionality. Above all, recruiters want their technology solutions to work hard on all levels, including as a business management tool. It is for these reasons and more, why more and more agencies are now choosing eploy®," Paul concluded.
