As a staffing professional, you have infinite resources and data to manage. You track calls made to prospects, applications taken from candidates, billing you generate from clients. That’s a lot of input.
Some firms use separate systems for each or worse – no system at all. If you’ve ever considered implementing back office software, here are a few ways it can help that may influence your decision.
Keep track of applicants. This is one of the most basic functions back office software can offer, but it is also one of the most valuable. Bringing people into your database on the front end gives you a valuable source of data you can use to know what skill sets are available and how closely they match your client needs. Plus, it gives you a single location to store applicant data so you can easily follow up with them as needed.
Track metrics. It’s really tough to get a grasp on what’s working for you and what’s not if you don’t have data available to analyze. Know which branches or individuals are the most productive. Understand what processes work and which don’t. Examine which sectors are gaining momentum and which are falling off. Establish KPIs and your back office software can help you know how far you are from reaching them.
Actively manage your payroll and collections. Ensure your employees are paid on time and your staffing firm is compliant with all tax and insurance regulations. While proactive payrolling benefits your candidates, be sure that tend to your collections with equal focus. You’ll never get money you don’t invoice for. A back office system can help you keep track of who owes you and how much they owe you.
Improve your talent pool. By managing applications through an ATS, you’ll be able to more easily identify the people who fit your clients’ talent needs so you can respond quickly and accurately to requisitions.
