Scheduling employees for recruitment companies

We have received many inquiries over the years from recruitment companies looking for a better way to manage candidates while also helping internal consultants. We know from more than 3000 customers that not every program suits every customer……this rostering / scheduling program is made for recruitment companies.

  • Allow candidates to advise availability electronically in advance making scheduling easier
  • Candidates can sign in on own smart phone (no hardware required) or location based kiosk
  • Build schedules in advance and share with candidates via email or smart device
  • Candidates schedules go directly into their own smart device calendar
  • Create electronic open shifts and let the keenest candidates fill the positions (first in gets the shift)
  • Give your customers visibility/access to the schedule showing live who is in and who is late
  • Consultants can see live who is on site and who is late
  • Less than 15 cents per employee per day

When talking to potential customers from the recruitment industry I get told I don’t understand the pressures of being a consultant and managing candidates 24 by 7 in some instances with no visibility, customers calling me to tell me an employee has not turned up before I even know about it.

The good news here is I worked in this industry for more than 10 years in a previous life, I had the 24 by 7 phone. I remember being up at 11:00pm trying to find replacements for people who called in sick on a rotating 18 week 24 hours a day roster. Finally i would get to bed well after midnight only to then find more people at 4:00am in the morning for the next customer who just had an unexpected container or two arrive a day early throwing out the roster for the day.

Managing people in high pressure situations was always tough, information at our fingertips often comprised a data base of names or a printed spreadsheet of names. We all did the same thing, we all got on the mobile phone and started dialing, I could spend hours some mornings just ringing numbers hoping to find the candidate required to fill the position. Sometimes you got lucky and got a yes from the candidate in the first few calls, other times 20 calls later you were still looking to fill the position.

I remember days where I needed 10 people to fill 10 positions, I could have been on the phone for three hours just getting these positions filled, if you have ever worked in this industry or ever been a customer of a recruitment company supplier I know you will relate.

Don’t let this be you every day any more

Times have changed, technology has changed now you can do so much more with detailed easy to use systems that not only make your life easier but you can now give access to your customer if you want. Recently I completed a demonstration to a recruitment company in Melbourne online, when I mentioned the idea of sharing information online with the customer they were very nervous, apprehensive and before I could even start to show the possibilities everyone in the room categorically said NO… NO we will not give access to our customer….then I continued the demonstration and showed them how it worked, within minutes all the people in the room wanted to know how soon they could implement, quite simply we blew them away with the possibilities.

I have been in your shoes and searched the globe several years ago to find a better rostering solution for many industries not just recruitment. After looking at and trying more than 30 rostering solutions over 12 months I know I have the best solution for you.
