3 Benefits of an Integrated Recruitment Tool (2 minute read)
- Single server
One of the challenges of a non- HRIS software is the lack of cooperation between different servers. Using standalone recruitment software adds an extra step to the already troublesome process of hiring new employees. Even after you select the perfect applicant to hire you then have to upload all the employee’s demographic information from your third party hiring software to your in-house HR system. With an integrated recruitment tool all information submitted by the applicant and added by the personnel manager are already in the same system as your current employees. With a few button pushes all the employees information is switched into an active employee file. Sans any missing information has been moved directly over into your day to day employee maintenance window.

2. Ease of use
There are countless steps to hiring an applicant before you even think about onboarding. Trying to figure out the best fit for the position your trying to fill can be stressful and working with subpar software makes it even worse! Standalone software’s often require extra steps for each recruitment because they have no direct contact with your records, reentering job descriptions and requirements every time you need to post. An integrated system offers the ability to save jobs for reposting later. When paired with a custom payroll service applying pay to new hires becomes the press of a button.

When it comes to getting an employee’s information correct in your system precision is key. Mistaking even one number can affect your employees from miscalculating their pay to outing them from FMLA coverage. The same can happen when onboarding a new employee. The switch from a third party hiring software is where most of these mistakes take place. Integrated systems are able to avoid these problems by drawing the employee and payroll information from the single server previously mentioned. This avoids the game of telephone you play when entering information into system after system.
