Are you reviewing your recruitment software?

Selecting a new recruitment system is one of the largest decisions a recruitment agency makes. It plays an integral role in the success of the business by enabling your consultants to efficiently manage their relationship with clients and candidates whilst giving management the ability to monitor process and productivity. Recruitment software is also one of the most expensive investments you will make as a business so making sure you choose the right system is crucial.

Why are you looking to review new systems?

There are a number of reasons why recruitment agencies look at new recruitment software, but they generally fall into these 3 categories:

  • Current system is underperforming for your business needs.
  • Start-up business with no system in place.
  • No system in place currently.

Having the right functionality is key

Your new system should work in line with how your business operates. Before you start reviewing the market it is important to list out all of your desired functionality.

General areas to consider:

  • Registration of Applicants
  • Advertising of Jobs/ Placements
  • Data Management
  • Searching
  • CRM Functionality
  • Integrations with Third Party Applications
  • Reporting

If your current system is not meeting your requirements, your consultants will use workarounds. This could be using spreadsheets outside the system whether it's for to-do lists, availability schedules, current bookings etc. Ideally you need to have all your data managed through the system giving you clear visibility of your consultants' activity. 

We've put together a detailed 10-stage whitepaper to provide a complete guide to choosing your next recruitment software, listing the key areas you need to look into to ensure you make the best decision for your business.
