Signs Your Hiring Software Needs an Update

Posted by Erin Borgerson on July 10, 2015


Do you feel your franchise is always the last to jump on the latest trends in technology? Do you feel as though your hiring process could be better? Staying on top of the latest technology trends is essential for all franchises. Yet, with all the noise about latest trends and fads it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint what systems are necessary and which are superfluous. Being in the know gives you a competitive advantage and keeps your franchise ahead of the game when it comes to hiring and recruiting for your business.

Hiring software is a great tool for franchisees to use, but if it is outdated, it’s useless. It’s essential to make sure that your hiring software not only works, but can be used by both a franchise brand’s leadership team and franchisees.

How to Spot the Signs:

  1. You’re running low on applicants
  2. You can’t delete older job postings
  3. You are having trouble adding new job postings
  4. Applicants are having trouble uploading resumes, cover letters, etc.
  5. Emails aren’t being sent properly
  6. Applicants are receiving irrelevant email responses
  7. You are having problems getting background checks and security information
  8. You can’t post positions to desired job boards
  9. You have difficulty saving interview notes and scorecards

If you find that these signs are relevant to you, then maybe it’s time to upgrade to a new hiring platform for your franchise. With an updated hiring software program you will have access to finding top talent faster, figuring out which candidate is the best fit for your business and will have all of the resources that are necessary to have an efficient hiring system. A fully updated hiring system will save you time by not having to go through piles upon piles of resumes and not having to interview individuals who are not the right candidate for the position.

The Hireology hiring platform gives franchises what they need to select the right candidate for the job directly from their internet browser. The platform is an easy-to-use system that allows you to accept, store, share and rate resumes, as well as cover letters, all in one location. The more organized your hiring practice is the better the outcome will be for your franchise.
