We’ve been using Jobscience Recruiting since the beginning of 2011. We were using a similar application — well, actually it wasn’t similar at all — it’s like night and day. There were three key drivers that motivated our management team to make the decision to implement Jobscience: flexibility, intuitiveness and mobile.
The biggest factor driving our business decision was flexibility. Our current solution was a desktop application with the look and feel of a traditional MS product. It was robust; however, it took a rocket scientist to customize it, which we only found out after the implementation. InternEdge is an innovative tech firm, and we bring disruptive business models to market. Because of this, we need a solution that is as agile as we are. We found that in Jobscience. The application is customized for the industry we are in but flexible enough to meet our unique customer needs. To get this type of product elsewhere would have taken a considerable upfront cash investment.
Technology is only as good as the buy-in from your team. From experience, I know that if there’s a long learning curve, the probability of effective usage drops significantly. During the 30-day trial, we were able to test the user experience and the results were favorable. Everyone loved the application. There weren’t any complex processes, and really, someone could jump right in and use Jobscience without any formal training. The team felt that this technology would make their jobs easier and increase their productivity.
Our business model requires our team to be mobile. We can’t be limited to accessing our applications only from our desktops. We lose productivity and business that way. Jobscience Recruiting is in the cloud and allows access from multiple mobile devices. This is critical to enabling us to get the information that we need — when we need it — whether we’re working on the road or after hours. In this fast-paced, small world, business happens at any time. We know that to be successful and deliver value to your customers, your resources have to be in the cloud.
## Impact on Our Business
After implementing Jobscience Recruiting, we reduced our manual data input time 75 percent by using the email and calendar sync tools. We were easily able to create workflows to automate processes. This allowed our team to focus more of their time on delivering value to our customers — making a positive impact on our bottom line!
