Cloud Expands Recruitment Agencies’ Horizons

Software as a Service (SaaS) has been around for many years now and has been refined and taken up in the intended context. It saves money, time, and improves productivity through the flexibility of Cloud Computing.

The uses of cloud computing within the recruiting and staffing sector is already in motion but is often invisible. The nature of the recruitment sector has made it well suited to cloud-based technological advances. The cloud has proved to be an ideal fit for recruitment, offering short as well as long term solutions for companies who want to be flexible with their IT.

SaaS is definitely proving attractive for small start-up recruitment agencies. A cloud-based system provides great functionality at a lower cost while offering flexibility, the freedom to access their office wherever they are, 24-hour uptime and increased capability on mobile devices, etc.

Hosting recruitment-specific applications in the Cloud, such as Microdec, Voyager, FileFinder, Sage, and  MS Office, to include email applications, can significantly lower IT resources and service costs. Cloud for recruitment agencies also reduces the IT team’s administrative tasks and allows them to focus on creating value for the organisation. A good, fully redundant cloud infrastructure provides a scalable server for data storage and data backup.

One of the advantages SaaS brings is converting capital expenditure to an operating expense. With the pay-as-you-go model, a concept most of us have been doing for years with our mobile phones, it allows management to divest IT budgets to its core functions. Starting offices up in other counties or abroad, for example, is made easier by rolling out cloud-hosted applications, cloud-hosted VoIP telephony, as well as a cloud-hosted desktop. Within a year, the return on investment is guaranteed.
