Does your software automatically promote your vacancies to thousands of candidates?

All vacancies published using our recruitment software benefit from automatic publishing to the networx network; a highly successful platform that instantly promotes your vacancies to thousands of candidates!

The networx network includes:-

  • Our own job board which attracts over 40,000 visitors every day!
  • Social media sites Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Selected partner sites (an extensive portfolio of preferred suppliers)
  • Email alerts (sent to over 250,000 registered candidates every month)
  • Suggested jobs (promoted in the accounts of over 1.5 million registered candidates!)

For some clients the networx network is their primary source of candidates and has helped reduce the cost per hire significantly by eliminating the need to spend money on other platforms.

Our aim is to provide the No.1 recruitment system in the UK.

Are you purchasing an off-the-shelf solution or software built for you?

Unlike many off-the-shelf solutions, our recruitment software is designed and built to reflect the specific needs of each client.

We not only configure our software to reflect the way an organisation recruits but also tailor the level of functionality that is implemented to support each stage of the recruitment process.

As a modular solution, clients can also simply add new functionality as and when they need it.

This ensures that our software not only reflects the needs of our clients today, but has the flexibility and scope to support any changes or requirements in the future.

Examples of modules that you can add to our software include Video Interviews, Advanced Reporting, Data Extraction, Candidate Onboarding, HR System Integration and Online Testing Provider Integration.

  • How much can you tailor the software to reflect your specific needs?

Are you paying for functionality you don't require?

Our recruitment software is built to support the specific needs of each organisation.

Clients can not only choose which modules they wish to include but more importantly they can also exclude any functionality they don't require and any associated costs.

One of the major benefits of building our software in modules is that should an organisation require any additional functionality in the future, this can be added with minimal impact on your existing software

  • Can you exclude functionality you don't require right now and easily add it to your solution at a later date?

Is your software secure?

The new Data Protection law due to come into force in 2018 will have a significant impact on the way you can use and store candidate data.

Protecting the data held within your recruitment software is an essential consideration when choosing providers.

Our software not only benefits from our own regular penetration testing but is also subject to our clients testing policies too.

This means that our software is continuously being tested for any security risks and any necessary improvements are made accordingly. All new updates to the software also undergo rigorous security testing as a matter of course.

  • Is your software secure?

Does your software integrate directly with your online testing providers?

Whilst many software providers state they integrate with testing providers, it is definitely worth taking the time to understand the process for both your system users and your candidates.

Full integration offers so many more benefits than simply automatically triggering emails to candidates to ask them to complete the tests. Your software should offer a seamless process that ensures users can not only easily control the process of inviting candidates but also prevent candidates from completing the same test more than once and remove the need to manually input the results received by email or directly from the website of your online testing provider.

  • Do you have to login to your testing provider to view test results or can these be viewed directly from with your recruitment software?

Does your provider offer regular health checks?

We are committed to ensuring you maximise the potential of your software and therefore conduct regular health checks with every client.
