evolve announces Version 5
FCP Internet Ltd, the leading provider of evolve online recruitment software today announced the launch of the latest version of its platform - evolve V5 http://www.evolvedb.co.uk/news/evolve-version-5
This development forms part of the evolve continuous development programme which ensures that users are always kept up to date with new functionality and enhancements. This announcement incorporates the most significant redevelopment and enhancement of the application within the last two years.
Nick John, Managing Director FCP Internet said, we remain committed to our policy of providing users with ever increasing levels of functionality from the moment that they sign up for the evolve service.
With this new release (which is the result of numerous user requested changes as well as FCP innovation) all users can gain benefit from the huge host of changes regardless of whether they signed up 4 years ago or are signing up next week.
This release brings hundreds of improvements and updates to evolve with some major additions including the eagerly anticipated OutlookSync modules http://www.evolvedb.co.uk/OutlookSync which allow for full two way synchronisation between MS Outlook tasks, diary, contacts, email and evolve.
For those recruiters who centralise their activity around MS Outlook, it is now possible to integrate their CRM and database system directly with Outlook and to associate that with relevant client, contact or candidate records. Both inbound and outbound email through Outlook can now be tracked from within evolve directly including full attachment support.
Addressing the needs of the current recruitment marketplace, version 5 of evolve also incorporates significant new functionality around candidate search, CV and document management and provides tools to meet the needs of recruiters who are increasingly turning to passive candidate search techniques via social networks and media such as LinkedIn. And a new look and feel, complete with a contemporary and fresh icon set means evolve is easier to use than ever.
evolves unique CV Pool Candidate Search technology has been enhanced to offer virtual file system based category management, allowing simple drag-and-drop of CVs into a folder youve created in evolve to be auto-indexed in seconds (no need to create candidate records with evolve). CV Pool also promotes a highly efficient means of dealing with the large volume of candidates in the marketplace today.
Also of note is official support of MS Windows 7 evolve is the first recruitment front office application to declare compatibility with the next generation OS from Microsoft.
Completing the release are numerous features that streamline the admin or candidate search capabilities all contributing to a more user friendly and efficient solution for recruiters and managers.
evolve is a web delivered Software as a Service (SaaS) application that incorporates all of the IT backup, support and management that is necessary for a traditional LAN based application. The fact that it is funded on a monthly subscription basis avoiding large chunks of capital expenditure is particularly relevant to the current economic climate.
We have seen many users taking advantage of the slowdown to evaluate and improve the tools that they use to run their business said John. Making sure you have the best functionality is only part of the equation. Its also important to have a cost base for the business that flexes in line with performance. www.evolvedb.co.uk/SaaS
These latest developments continue the theme of positioning evolve as the proven, safe and cost effective front office solution for recruiters. evolve V5 allows us to reduce the entry point at which users can experience the benefits of this Tier 1 recruitment platform.
evolve V5 will be rolled out to existing users in the late August/September timeframe. New users can benefit at the same time.
