At Staffing World 2011 the Professional Advantage expo booth was located next to TalentRooster. TalentRooster allows employers and job seekers to connect through a database of digital video profiles. They have been talking to multiple applicant tracking systems (ATS) about integrating their solution. Since 1Staff is developed in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, customization and integration capabilities are features that really differentiate our product from other staffing and recruitment software systems.
1Staff allows you to have multiple forms for the same type of record. So for the initial integration with TalentRooster, I created a new form in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. Do you want to see the same fields for a contact on a light industrial job as you would on a healthcare position? You can tailor your forms by line of business and have the default form for users in that area be the one that best fits their needs.
Note the TalentRooster specific form below. We have added a new TalentRooster tab right inline on the form. This link could instead be the candidate’s LinkedIn profile or Twitter feed, or you could add those as different tabs. When I added the tab I chose to have it default as closed. This means that the form will load more quickly because it will only load the video page if you click on the tab to expand it.
By clicking on the tab the window expands allowing you to see the video inline (note the last name, phone, contact email, etc. are all made up for demonstration purposes). Clicking on the video play button will expand that page to full screen.
We also incorporated a link into our online resume for the candidate so it appeared in search. This allowed the video to be easily viewed from an iPad/iPhone or other mobile devices as well.
The integration took less than 45 minutes, but would have taken much less time if we didn’t have a very slow internet connection at the Expo. With a fast connection it could be done again in 15 minutes.
Do you have a solution you would like to see integrate with Microsoft Dynamics CRM or 1Staff?
