After the first two posts in the series, Staffing Software Built to Fit Canadian Staffing Agencies and Staffing Software Solutions: Best-of-Breed Approach including Canadian Payroll, we will turn our focus to an end-to-end staffing software solution based on Microsoft Dynamics. Microsoft invests a lot of time and effort to ensure their Dynamics products work well in Canada and we build our staffing and recruiting software right into Microsoft Dynamics, taking full advantage of that investment. 

1Staff customers benefit when Microsoft invests in new technologies. For example, our 1Staff Front Office will run natively on an iPad using the Safari Browser by summer. Our developers weren’t focused on making 1Staff work on an iPad, they were focused on the specific needs of staffing companies, but because of the fact our software is built right in Microsoft Dynamics our customers can access their staffing software directly on their iPads.

As mentioned before, our software is built in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, is at the top right of Gartner Magic Quadrant and trending higher, and also has native sales and marketing functionality built in. We have many customers who use one Front Office system and who have yet another system for CRM to provide them with more advanced sales and marketing functionality. However, we have all of the sales pipelines, goals, e-mail marketing, and relationship tracking you need because we built an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) right in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Not only do you have all of the functionality for the sales side of things, but you can also use the same system in your recruiting process.

Let’s run through a scenario. You have a great passive candidate you want to place, but she just isn’t quite ready to move. Six months pass and that same candidate visits your website to look at jobs. Wouldn’t you like to be notified that she is looking again? Wouldn’t you rather spend time contacting people who you know are actively looking – and wouldn’t you want to know which job posting they looked at 4 different times over the weekend? 

Say you send out a list of new full-time travel nurse openings to 200 candidates on your mailing list. Wouldn’t you like to see who opened the e-mails and what jobs they looked at so you can adjust your approach to provide the best service to your candidates? With 1Staff software built in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, you can focus on the candidates who are interested without wasting your time and the time of those who aren’t interested.

Clarification on my first blog post in this series (Staffing Software Built to Fit Canadian Staffing Agencies):

I was just looking back and wanted to clarify this quote: “In just a few weeks ( May 2-4), we are sponsoring the Association of Canadian Search, Employment and Staffing Services (ACSESS) conference in Niagara Falls”

This is referring to May 2nd through May 4th – not to be confused with the “May two four” holiday. After my time living in Canada, I can still speak a little Canadian.
