In a high-tech age where you know immediately whenever a friend across the country is waiting in line at a coffee shop, paper applications seem a little… last-century. Your candidates are searching for jobs online and interacting with your company’s web site online; why not make it easy for them to apply online too?
That’s why we offer Online Applications as an add-on option to COATSsql Staffing Software. When candidates enter their information into an online application, the data can be downloaded into COATS, and the appropriate fields in the Employee Master Record are populated automatically.
Brenda Harris of Applied Staffing Solutions in Reno, NV, implemented Online Applications as part of her company’s plan to stay on top of technology. “There was a little concern that we’d lose the ‘personal touch’ we worked so hard to establish,” Brenda says. “We are happy to realize that the online application process now gives us more time to get out of the office to make our face-to-face client calls.”
Brenda says the addition of Online Applications increased Applied Staffing Solutions’ efficiency: “Our walk-in traffic has dropped dramatically, without negatively affecting the quality of our candidate pool. It has made the recruiting process more efficient, substantially reduced paper costs, and saved a significant amount of staff time usually spent on data entry.”
If you’re ready to start saving time on data entry (and maybe get a little breathing space in your waiting room, too!), contact us to learn more about Online Applications.
