A Quick Guide to the Recruitment Agency’s ‘Work From Home’ Software Stack

Tech

Preventing COVID-19 spreading means working from home is here to stay! But how well are you set up and what should be in your recruitment agency’s ‘work from home’ software stack?

Work from home (or anywhere else) and run efficiently in the cloud

For some that still entertain some notion of going to an office, there’s no definitive date on a return anytime soon. For others that may have ditched the idea of having a geographically centralised place of business before coronavirus came along, then you are ahead of the game. If you have only just come around to thinking a virtual, no-bricks approach is the future, then it’s a brave new world and a fresh beginning.
The ability to work from home actually supports the higher aspiration of achieving geographical independence. This lets you work from anywhere, at a time and a place that you choose. However, to do this effectively you need to put in place the right technologies. Essentially, these map to the functions and are the levers with which you control your business.
Here we take a quick look at the software your recruitment agency should be considering to run efficiently in the cloud.

Understanding the recruitment software stack

The concept of a software stack simply means the collection of software that you use to achieve a specific objective. It’s common in tech circles to talk about the development stack – tools that you use to create new software apps. For business specific software, we might talk about the finance stack or the creative stack.
For a stack to be truly effective, the apps need to complement each other. The ability to interoperate is highly desirable. This may be expressed by simply exchanging specific data points, or by deeper integration such that specific functions for one application are available from within another.
The recruitment stack is broken out into three sections. Firstly, there are recruitment-specific software tools, sometimes called Line-of-Business applications. These perform specific functions related to the recruitment sector. Secondly, there is accounting software that provides the robust financial control and visibility. Finally, there is the management class of apps that enable day-to-day management of people and activity through communication, collaboration and organisation.
