Latest Improvements to Recruit So Simple

June 12th, 2013 | Company News

We’ve recently made a lot of improvements to our SAAS Recruitment Software. As always, these improvements come from the various suggestions and feedback that we receive from our customers.

  • Automatically create your own “Agency Copy” of a candidate’s CV from a template
  • Improved CV text searching with support for Boolean queries
  • Improved posting of jobs to LinkedIn, Facebook etc. with our new “Social Recruit” module
  • Brand new email composer with improved features
  • Much larger documents can be uploaded to the system
  • CV text searching now highlights the words found in the CV
  • A new report “Activity” has been added to monitor the actions each user performs
  • Quickly preview CVs from the search results screen
  • Several improvements to make reviewing job applications from your website easier
  • New search options for finding candidates/clients that haven’t been contacted recently

Automatically creating agency copies of candidate CVs is something we’re really excited about. This means you can now edit candidate CVs quickly and easily, adding your logo and styling without the need for additional software.

Our new “Social Recruit” module makes posting jobs to social networks even easier. Candidates can apply via your own branded job portal (hosted by us), and you can track the number of visitors each job receives and which social networks the visitors came from.

We’re always working on improving the system, making it easier to use and adding more features. We’re committed to maintaining Recruit So Simple as the UK’s leading online recruitment software product.

The Institute of Recruiters (IOR), the not for profit professional body, announces a partnership with one of the UK’s leading recruitment software providers, Recruit So Simple. This joint venture will allow IOR members to take advantage of special discounts and extended trials.

Both partners have a strong interest in supporting recruitment professionals involved in agency recruitment, corporate (in-house) recruitment and HR. Using the right recruitment software enables companies and individuals to streamline their business and become more efficient in the process.

Communication Made Simple

September 24th, 2012 | Company News

Keeping in touch with your candidates and clients is extremely important, that’s why we’ve designed Recruit So Simple from the ground up to ensure that communicating is easy. Using our online recruitment software, email and SMS messages can be sent to your candidates and clients directly from within the system, where they are then automatically logged against the relevant record.

When sending bulk email and SMS messages you can save time by using templates (defined by you) and personalise the content by using merge fields, which can display the recipient’s name and title. You can also add signatures and customise the fonts/colours just like any other email system.

Recruit So Simple’s built-in email system also gives you the ability to automatically log emails received from candidates and clients. You can parse and import CVs directly from within the inbox and add unknown recipients as contacts with one click.

We’re always working on improving the system, making it easier to use and adding more features. We’re committed to maintaining Recruit So Simple as the UK’s leading online recruitment software product.
