I’m a self-employed person, who engages in selling custom design clothes and I used to operate in such a small scale 6, 7 months ago when I needed nothing other than excel to take care of my accounts. I mailed with my suppliers and contacted them through calls but I never had the need of a lot of applications to process my business operations as my offering was quite main stream and the set of clients that I dealt with was also quite approachable within my span. When I shifted my operations from local, regional boundaries to a larger scale, I realized that connectivity, responsiveness and this improved level of interactions can do so much more to my sales than by regular methods.
This is a small scenario that could draw the boundaries of before and after effects of change in scale of operations and the expectations of that person. Earlier when that person wanted to operate in a smaller scale, the need for advance software was less but with the changes made into the business, better resources were needed. This is what has happened to every business today as they all seek to be above the others to deliver better value. This is one major reason for online recruitment software to be quite popular than back in the day but do you know what exactly can such systems for to your company resourcing procedure?
If you are a business operating in a larger scale, not necessarily global but in a wider local range, then you will most likely get applications from a lot of people at a daily basis. You might not be having the vacancies in your company but people will either way forward and keep a resume to try their luck and if you have an application tracking system or any related system, it will ease out and fasten the whole screen out procedure.
Most e recruitment software claim to be saving a lot of cost to the company than the cost incurred on its purchase. When you have a system to screen out whoever that is not suitable for your company database, then you are left with the people who actually needed to be interviewed and this saves up a lot of money as the management team will not have to spare their time talking to people who are not worth the time.
Finally another important thing is its ability to help maintain the resources and talent, even if someone leaves the company, it’s easier to match the qualifiers and quickly pick one off the system rather than go file by file. These are some of the great things software can do to resourcing but there is definitely more that you can gain over the cost of it.
