How can IT complement the recruitment technology and big data initiatives set to drive growth in the talent sector?
Throughout the past decade, recruitment firms that have kept a finger on the pulse of technology have gained a real competitive edge. The sector has gained greater efficiency and thrived as a result of shifting from paper based processes to digital workloads - firms that embrace the latest recruitment technology and adopt cutting-edge Cloud and Connectivity solutions have the power to become future-proof.
Today, IT is expected to do more than deliver high-speed Internet connectivity. Recruitment firms require IT systems that provide secure storage solutions for sensitive client information, guarantee business continuity, allow for seamless mobility and are robust enough to uphold big data initiatives, CV screening software, video interviews and job portals - both in-house and remotely.
Recruitment organisations need to provide IT infrastructure that is secure, scalable and reliable enough to accommodate high-bandwidth applications to support their growth which will duly oust non-value admin work. With key applications being delivered at wire speed, Exponential-e has already enabled recruitment firms such as InterQuest Group PLC, JAM Recruitment and Your World Recruitment to increase their efficiency and generate more billable hours and revenue.
Agile solutions equipped for the changing landscape of Recruitment:
Reliable high-speed connectivity
Connectivity is changing the way recruitment firms interact with candidates - the selection process can often involve CV screening software, automated notifications, email correspondence, telephone and video calls that can only be efficiently facilitated by a low latency, high-bandwidth Network connection. Yields of data from application forms and CVs frequently need to be transferred at wire speed between employees and offices, so the quality and reliability of your corporate Wide Area Network is critical.
With Big Data applications and other forms of recruitment technology consuming large amounts of bandwidth, it is essential for your IT department to be able to monitor and control the traffic running over your Network with our Bandwidth Management tool, so that business-critical applications are given priority.
Ensure Business Continuity in unforeseen circumstances
As the crucial entry point for potential candidates, your website and job application portals cannot afford to experience any downtime, as this intensifies the risk of missing out on top applicants. By having a mirrored clone of your production servers readily available - by means of Server Replication - any production or connectivity failures will result in minimum downtime. Furthermore, by utilising our Virtual Data centre you will increase your organisation's ability to adapt to peaks in traffic and CV uploads in response to high-demand job advertisements.
Data is the lifeblood of recruitment firms, with thousands of CVs and contact details stored in anticipation of future job opportunities. The loss or leak of such business critical, confidential data would be detrimental to your company; however our Online Backup solution mitigates these risks, thus safeguarding the integrity and reputation of your organisation, whilst giving you complete peace of mind.
