“If we did it all again, we would choose eploy®. They are great software developers and have been successful in building Adlib a complex website that was technically very challenging but easy to expand to address our future business needs.”
Frank Hutton, Managing Director, Adlib[Adlib - Vacancies]Bristol based recruitment agency, Adlib, which specialises in marketing, digital media and creative roles, has invested in the latest, leading-edge browser-based technology from recruitment software specialist, eploy® to help drive efficiencies in its business and facilitate its long-term growth objectives.
Adlib is no stranger to web based technology, but after a revaluation of its existing online system and review of alternative service providers, the company recognised that eploy®'s advanced solution would provide the additional functionality and flexibility required to centralise and enhance its communications with both candidates and clients.
Due to its scalability, eploy® also met Adlib's need to future-proof its investment by allowing cost-effective incremental expansion when required - in line with business needs, website updates or in response to new technological advancements developed by eploy®.
"Our initial broad specification allowed us to compare five software companies on a scoring based system. Of the two companies that ticked all the boxes - eploy® was the solution able to offer a multi-faceted approach to access information, supported with superior search facility options and desk top customisation. We were also really impressed with the company's customer service ethos and ability to provide integral software and bespoke web development services," said Frank Hutton, Managing Director at Adlib.
To make Adlib's website a true central communications portal, eploy® managed the web development for the new site as well, building and implementing key features to complement the corporate design. "This included seamlessly linking our Blog and Twitter feeds into the eploy® powered pages via live RSS links. Integration of live feeds to monitor and track news will help to project our 'forward thinking' professional image," said Frank.
eploy®'s integrated solution also provides a greater degree of secure interaction with Adlib's new website. The company's consultants, who manage more than 1000 CVs a month, now have ubiquitous and secure access twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, via their smartphones and laptops. Frank adds; "The nature of our industry means we are in contact with candidates all times of the day, so to be able to access eploy's system via our iPhones in the evening will absolutely transform the way we all work."
The eploy® powered website will also give Adlib enhanced management control. eploy®'s automated reporting systems can be used to constantly monitor the success of the company, its employees and placements. The business reports analyse KPI's, training needs, bottlenecks, cost per hire, time to hire.[Adlib - Features]"Adlib was not just looking for the best technological solution but a partnership to support their business growth," said Christopher Bogh, eploy®'s Technical Director. "We are innovators in our business sector and work closely with customers to make a real difference."
