1. CRM Discovery
Where is your software project?
What are your goals?
What are the risks and opportunities?
What are your options?
What does success look like?
We start with a Recruitment CRM Discovery – this helps us “MOT” your current objectives system, workflows, issues and opportunities.
We’ll review your business goals, your recruitment software and your recruiting process and staff adoption. We’ll outline your options and help you make the right decisions to progress on your Recruitment CRM Project.
2. Stick or Twist
Improve what you have, or
Change your Recruitment CRM?
Changing your Recruitment CRM can be a risky (but necessary) strategy. We will guide you in assessing why you should stick or make a business case for moving – hence “Stick or Twist”!
- Stay with your current recruitment system?
- Migrate to the next version of your recruitment software?
- Or procure a new system?
- Which systems are relevant for your business?
We can help you with these crucial decisions.
The implementation phase is where many recruitment businesses are just too busy or unskilled to deliver effectively. We will:
Project manage change
Manage your budget
Test and migrate your data
Review and improve your workflows
Ensure adoption and ROI
Once we have worked with you to develop the best recruitment software strategy, you’ll need support with a realistic and on-budget and on-time implementation.
Depending on your internal resource and skill situation , we will help you implement the project either as a project manager, or project director.
4. Business as Usual
So – now you “just” need to launch your new recruitment systems and train your recruiters, right?
You will have launched change in your recruitment business before and know that “set it and forget it” is not an effective strategy. You need to manage change and people – get this phase wrong and you waste time, money and good will. We deliver:
Go live support
Onsite training and enhanced recruiter adoption
Development and optimisation
This is the ultimate goal! You want your recruiting teams using your software, and well! Ideally you want a CRMFirst strategy.
Once your CRM change is delivered, it’s now business as usual… you’ll need help bedding in the change and ensuring your business gets ROI from your recruitment CRM.
Work with the experts in Recruitment Software Selection, Implementation and ROI.
Change does not happen just because you buy new things! We work with recruitment and IT leaders to ensure that they select and use the best recruitment software.
