Good Recruitment Software Support

Tuesday 17th September 2019
PrimePRO Software

Support for temporary recruitment software is not just answering a question but it's delivering a service that goes beyond that. There are several major steps in providing a great service, answering the phone with a human being is a good start! So many call centres today are answered by automated systems that ask you to make menu choices some of which are not relevant to your query making the initial contact experience so much worse and typically leading you up a blind alley where you have to hang up and start over! Other support services require you to submit your query by email. This is OK as you can quickly fire off a question and a screenshot which can be…

Holiday Pay for Temporary Staff

Monday 9th September 2019

Does your recruitment software or payroll software handle temporary holiday pay? I get asked this a lot from temporary recruitment agencies and unfortunately not all recruitment software providers out there successfully come up with the goods to satisfy the requirement. Holiday pay for temporary workers is not a simple calculation. It would be if it was done in a set way however when AWR (Agency Worker Regulations) was introduced it further complicated things because you had to offer parity of holiday pay as well as parity of pay after the 12-week period. Meaning that you had to potentially accommodate different holiday schemes for each worker for each client after their 12-week* period. So rather than just being the standard 28…

Time to update your recruitment software?

Monday 2nd September 2019
PrimePRO Software

Does your recruitment software suffer from performance issues and login issues? If your recruitment software is delivered over a remote desktop connection it is more than likely to be old Windows tech probably over 10 years old which requires a server to run. Your recruitment CRM is more complicated to use, runs slowly and has far too many buttons and features that you would ever use. Like Word or Excel, who on earth uses the VB editor feature in Excel? When all you want to do is perform a simple task quickly and easily in a less cluttered more modern environment. The new breed of recruitment software should ideally be .NET browser-based operating in the cloud. Giving you instant login…

Using online timesheets - is a game changer?

Tuesday 27th August 2019
PrimePRO Software

How can online timesheets truly deliver the automation it promises? Well that depends very much on multiple factors. Whether you can get client buy-in and if it actually works! Firstly, convincing your clients to switch from paper time capture and signing should be easy if you can demonstrate a very simple process of edit and approval. Where they can login via a browser and adjust the start and finish times if necessary and tick to approve them. This will be far more convenient for them than signing, scanning and emailing and will save them time and hassle. Plus, they have an online record of every timesheet they have approved! Next, your recruitment software needs to deliver in several main areas. Your client…
