More and more often these days we receive enquiries regarding internet recruitment software, as people ready themselves to move toward “the cloud” without clue as to how it could affect their software and perhaps more importantly, how their company functions.
Whilst recruitment software (and software in general) makes leaps and bounds forwards, internet infrastructure has not.
Probably the most glaring problem with internet-only recruitment software is that without the internet, your software doesn’t work! Should your internet connection drop, so will your productivity…with an internet-only solution you will not have access to your software, your database, your intellectual property.
In short; your company grinds quickly to a halt.
Now whilst this can be disastrous enough we do hear more horror stories of internet-only recruitment software providers’ nefarious methods for trapping companies. The second, and likely more dangerous problem with this software set-up is that you are not in control of your data.
Without data (names, phone numbers, emails etc) a recruitment consultancy cannot function, some would argue that the database is the most important asset a company can have. If your recruitment software solution is based entirely on the internet then your software provider essentially has YOUR data under lock and key. A key which, we all too often hear, they can charge you hefty fee to retrieve should you ever decide to change you software.
A client/server recruitment software solution however, such as MatchMaker, ensures that your data is available regardless of whether, sometimes temperamental, internet connections are up and running and keeps all of your data in one place; on YOUR machine, under YOUR lock and key.
