Implementing Erecruit’s Enterprise Staffing Software Platform in 2018 Read more
Staffing firms looking to make an enterprise software replacement worry about the potential for a dip in productivity when the new system goes live. The impact to productivity can not only be minimized, but it can be completely avoided. There are two key approaches to minimize the productivity dip. First, avoid upheaval before it occurs and, second, put the infrastructure in place to immediately act on post go-live opportunities for improvement. In speaking with our customers and analyzing various outcomes we have identified the following best practices:
Bond International Software, worldwide provider of staffing and recruitment software solutions, and TempBuddy, the multi-award winning contingent workforce software innovator, have announced two key appointments to drive their global growth. Joining the company are Tony Rossi as Vice President of US Sales, and Matt Lyndley as Sales Director for the APAC region.
