Recruitment is big business. It’s not surprising then that there’s a whole raft of applicant tracking systems, talent acquisition apps and other hiring technology on the market.
Yet, when Paul Greening escaped corporate life five years ago to set up his own Sydney-based executive search firm, he turned not to standard recruitment technology, but to Act!.
“My inventory is people,” says Paul who places candidates in executive roles across the Asia Pacific region. “And, just like any other business, I need to keep the pipeline filled, which requires continual engagement with the market and a constant communications cycle. Act! lets me do that.”
By being able to get hold immediately of any detail needed, Paul Greening estimates he saves 10 to 15 hours every week with Act!.
Having a Cloud access to Act! means Paul doesn’t have to worry about having an up-to-date database on his laptop, wherever he goes.
Act!’s email marketing function lets Paul stay in contact with senior executives who often started off as candidates and have now become clients themselves.
