Modern technology to simplify and boost recruitment agents’ business

If you are playing at the front of the hiring line you know that the competition to get the best candidate is even more challenging than ever. Not only do you have to find people with the right skills, but also people whose values match those of the company. There are risks like social media behaviour to consider on top of compliance with various legislation and industry best practices. To keep all of these balls in the air, you need to make sure you have the right systems in place.


Recruiter efficiency can improve enormously with the latest developments in technology, in particular, applicant tracking systems (ATS). The automation of multiple recruitment functions will speed up the recruitment process, making it easier and faster to filter candidates, improve the candidate experience, build talent pools and report on compliance. They also assist recruiters in keeping on top of the productivity of their teams.


The main focus of in-house recruiters is the evaluation of candidates for specific roles within their company. In contrast, staffing companies have to focus on the sourcing of candidates for a variety of businesses. With a top-notch Recruitment Management System, recruitment agencies can now benefit from the latest technology to:

·         Post on multiple candidate sourcing channels to attract the right candidates for various roles 

·         Manage high volumes of candidates with a bulk candidate management system

·         Filter applications using machine learning

·         Build talent pools based on education, experience, skills or job descriptions

·         Nurture relationships with passive jobseekers to place them when the time is right.


Simplify is the latest in Recruitment Management Systems for the South African market. “We have developed our suite of services based on international best practices combined with our deep understanding of the local market to help recruiters and candidates to connect, as simply and efficiently as possible - effectively reducing the time to hire,” says Shaun Clarke, brand manager of Simplify. “Our Applicant Tracking System was therefore built with features to serve agencies’ needs in terms of customer retention management as well as effective team management.”


Clarke explained that customer retention management is simplified with a single system for storing and sharing all data relating to customer acquisition and nurturing, job requests, company contacts, contracts and terms as well as commission reporting.

For efficient team management, the ATS was built to facilitate and streamline collaboration across recruitment teams, set up agency-specific productivity reporting and to report on targets and commissions.


Thanks to modern technology and social media, people increasingly expect quick responses. The ability to respond to clients and candidates timeously, with insights based on reliable data that helps make the right matches, will give recruitment agencies a competitive edge. That is why it makes business sense to assess the systems you have in place and consider the technology available to improve on them.


“We understand that it can sometimes be daunting to change to a new system. We offer product and process training and support to arm recruiters with the knowledge and tools to recruit and place the right candidates with the right companies for sustained business success.” Clarke concluded.
