How does recruitment database software increase recruiter efficiency?
Online recruitment database software enables recruiters (especially recruitment start-ups) to centralise their candidate, client, vacancy, and placement data in the cloud.
This process provides users with on-demand access to all of their information in one place - whenever and wherever they need it.
The delivery method for this type of recruitment database is normally provided by the SaaS (Software as a Service) delivery model but, why should recruiters make the switch from a more traditional desktop based recruitment database to one that is cloud based and why is a recruitment database so important to the success of your business?
When a recruiter first starts out, they will most likely use a simple spreadsheet or email based storage to keep track of their clients and candidates.
This is done primarily to reduce initial start-up costs and while this approach is fine in the beginning, most successful recruiters will quickly outgrow the functionality that these methods of storing data have to offer.
Over time, even the most basic searches for information will become a slow and frustrating task and let's not forget there's always the added risk of hardware failure which can result in a permanent loss of your critical data especially if it's not been regularly backed up.
* Before this happens, you should consider implementing a dedicated online recruitment database.
Centralise all candidate, client, vacancy, and placement data
Make searching for specific data faster and less time consuming
Store documents such as client and candidate terms as well as parsed candidate CVs
Keep a detailed log of all verbal and email communications with your clients and candidates
Create and manage your job vacancies and candidate placements
Publish job adverts directly to your own recruitment website and/or external job boards
Review and track incoming candidate applications
Schedule and track candidate interviews
Quickly communicate with your candidates and clients via email or SMS
Work from anywhere and on any internet enabled device
Restrict user access to specific functions based on user permissions and roles
Provide you with daily backups of your critical data in the event of hardware failure
In addition to these significant benefits, a good online recruitment database will easily keep up with increased demand as your recruitment business grows and will enable a large number of users to access the system at the same time.
* If you fall into the category of "spreadsheet-based recruiter", we strongly recommend that you at least consider exactly what a dedicated online recruitment database could do for you and your business before it's too late.
