The telephone system is undoubtedly the lifeblood of any recruitment company to win the recruitment race for talent. Contact with candidates and clients is what drives business forward, therefore the chosen system must be reliable and offer the features required to operate as efficiently as possible.
Not only are high-quality features required but the system must be resilient and have a disaster recovery plan in place. Time is money for recruitment consultants and one thing they simply cannot operate without is a phone.
In such a competitive industry every edge counts so having a sophisticated telephony system is essential. Often tracking the quantity and type of calls made can be tricky.
With all of these outbound calls, call costs can be high too. Plus, when meeting candidates and in interviews the agents will inevitably miss calls, a quick response is important as often candidates can be placed for the same role by different agencies, so it literally can be a race to place the top talent.
Call reporting is a necessity in an industry so heavily driven by sales targets, efficiency needs to be monitored to ensure day-to-day operations are seamless and profits maximised.
Agents will not always be based in the office, however, calls still need to be connected wherever they are located. Flexibility is a must in the telephony system as well as a host of features to ensure the agents can work
as effectively as possible.
