First things first: we aren’t here to tell you that if you don’t adopt new software, your agency will go down in burning flames. We don’t like fires, and plus it’s OK to be old fashioned. Second: adopting and integrating software is a thorough process, and commitment for the long run is needed.
One of your goals as an agency is to expedite the hiring process so that you can meet your clients needs, and to do so as efficiently as possible, with the primary goal being always meeting payroll and streamlining what it takes to do that. Why not find a solution that does both: staffing software. Here’s what you need to know about the advantages of using staffing software and how your agency could benefit.
Have you ever thought about how nice it would be to have a common platform for your interdepartmental communication? Software can be a platform to make inter-departmental communication at your agency harmonious and productive. For example, you can centralize document tracking and communication.
For a staffing agency, having the ability to bridge the gap between recruiting (the front) and accounting (the back) is one way to drastically increase efficiency at your agency.
*Good self-service, that is. And so should you. If you empower your employees and your clients to take advantage of online access, you can relieve your team of the burden of needing to play the back-and-forth game of calls, emails, etc. that clog up their time and pull them away for recruiting the best talent. You’ll get proverbial bonus points, too, if your staffing software has a user-friendly interface that makes people enjoy the experience, instead of becoming confused and then calling your staff to fix it. Trust us, your staff won’t appreciate that. In short: save your team time and make your clients and employees happy by giving them easy-to-use self-service tools.
Nobody likes when it comes time for reporting. Except for accountants. They really like that. But for the rest of us, this can be a dreaded time of confirming data integrity. Throw into the mix the urgency of meeting deadlines, such as payroll, and it can be a downright cumbersome experience if you are going about it the old-fashioned way or are using unfriendly software.
Why not adopt a system that knows the need of your business: always meeting payroll? Part of the beauty of using staffing software is that they know this and other needs that are specific to the industry. And a good staffing software solution ensures that you have the ability to seamlessly pull the reporting you need and export it into your ERP system without a headache, which leads us to our next point.
Using an accounting program? (If you aren’t, do you also not have a computer?)
Jokes aside, help your accounting team out by adopting a software solution that easily integrates into your existing business programs. With the ability to support functions beyond payroll, you could benefit many other aspects of your business like we mentioned above, such as human resources, recruiting and more. And nowadays, more companies are bringing their front-end software closer to the back-end in order to enhance overall business efficiency. In the era of cloud-based solutions, staying competitive could mean that your business might get left behind if your different programs don’t speak to each other.
