Microsoft Corporation has long been a front runner in the software, computing and general technology industries. With its impeccable history of delivering sustainable value with its technology developments, users can breathe-easy knowing their Microsoft investment comes with a deserving enhancement security. This is the first of a series of posts I will deliver regarding what I feel are the top 5 Microsoft technologies for the staffing and recruiting industry.
#1 – Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and 1Staff
Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides a full customer relationship management (CRM) suite with marketing, sales, and service capabilities. Dynamics CRM 2011 has many powerful features including:
Workflow – Power business processes to ensure a consistent candidate experience.
Dashboards –Eeasy-to-use, comprehensive charts and custom reporting.
Advanced find – Filter through your database and drill down to detailed statistics.
Goal management – Set your sights for success.
Extremely easy end-user customization capabilities.
1Staff staffing software extends this functionality and is very intuitive for applicant tracking and recruiting purposes. The 1Staff search tool allows recruiters the ability to submit qualified candidates to customers for review. Emails, activities, and appointments are easily tracked in 1Staff or Microsoft Outlook. Once a candidate is accepted, a user simply completes the assignment details and the Job Order is complete.
1Staff will also parse resumes, search for candidates based on skill, education and other requirements, and utilize CRM workflow to ensure consistent candidate experience. Together, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and 1Staff provide a powerful solution designed specifically for the staffing and recruiting industry. 1Staff can also seamlessly be integrated into a back office, accounting solution such as Microsoft Dynamics GP and PAM from Professional Advantage.
