We’re huge fans of small businesses here at Reverse Delta – believe it or not we were also a start-up 17 years ago. For any start up recruiter, making sure you’re in the 20% of firms that survive the first two years is a huge challenge. As a provider of recruitment websites, we want to do everything we can to give your new recruitment agency the very best start.
Technology solutions are a brilliant way to help you to grow and scale your recruitment agency. If you were going to invest in three areas to give your agency the best chance of surviving, these are what Reverse Delta would recommend:
- Manage your candidates with a CRM system
Integrating your website and CRM is a brilliant solution to help you automate loads of your recruitment agency practices. Reverse Delta’s website platform FXRecruiter integrates with market-leading CRM and 3rd party technology providers. We work closely with our integration partners so that your website can benefit from their updates and we’re always looking to work with new technology companies so that we’re able to work with the best on the market. And if you change CRM, you will be pleased to know that it’s easy to switch your website over to your new provider.
