How do you choose recruitment software?

Are you ready to set up your own recruitment business? It is impossible to imagine any new business setting up without the right software to help smooth operations and increase profit. Although the best recruitment software can save you a lot of time and work in terms of administration, incorrect software can cost valuable time and resources. So how do you make sure you pick the right tools for setting up your business?

Do you know what you need?

Before you look at any recruitment software, it helps to make a list of all the functions you want this tool to fill. Many recruitment software providers might offer similar products, but it’s important to know exactly where they differ and what this could mean to the running of your business. You will also need to way up which features you are most likely to use. Do you need to access your software remotely? Should your software allow for multiple users at the same time? Or do you only require basic administrational support? It can be tricky to think ahead a few years, but this is how long the software should last you. Replacing software later on can be very costly and labour intensive. So, do you know where you see your business going?

Can it integrate with your business easily?

One major consideration when choosing the right recruitment software is integration. This is one of the main perks of cloud software, enabling the software to share data and information with any other systems you might already have in place. If your business needs to payroll, integration is a particularly useful software feature allowing maximum efficiency and crucial time saving.

Does the company offer support?

One of the main selling points of many software providers is the support they provide, and even though you might not think so now – this might become invaluable to you as your business grows. Signing up to a recruitment software provider that offers business support in terms of a helpline or training options, can save you a lot of time in the long run and is also a good way of providing you with the peace of mind that helps you focus more on all the other aspects of your business.
