I originally started using JobAdder when it was a posting service. I’ve seen the evolution over the years, it’s user friendly, easy, simple, made for recruitment.

We needed a track record of stability and security. We needed to be able to deliver a credible solution that would provide assurance to the client. Hand on heart, we needed to be able to advise the client that our solution, our tools, could handle [high] volumes in a secure manner.

We are very much moving into a data-driven society. I think JobAdder does a great job at capturing that data. I think that Analytics is an awesome tool to add another layer of analysis on top of that data. This is really beneficial for me as a business owner, to understand some of the opportunities and some of the bottlenecks we’re facing as a business and for individuals in the business, so that we can direct our efforts to the right things

Since the teams have been using the new CRM the feedback has been that it’s made managing the recruitment process more efficient, providing more time for them to spend on the part of the job they’re passionate about, with their candidates and clients.

So the best thing for us about JobAdder is the fact that it provides a central location where we can store information, we can share information, we can communicate via it, so whoever is working on a specific role or project at a certain time can always access all of the information they need, so there’s never a black spot in our communication or our productivity based on which team member is working at a specific time.

JobAdder is the most nimble and adaptable system we have used and having moved on to it from Bullhorn, our productivity has increased immensely. Data is easy to load, searching is much more agile and we are finding candidates we did not know we had.

JobAdder has been a convenient and essential tool for business. I love that it does not have to run on our VPN and when I work late hours out of the office, pulling up client and candidate information on my phone is a breeze.
