POSTAL STRIKE PUSHES RECRUITMENT COMPANIES
POSTAL STRIKE PUSHES RECRUITMENT COMPANIES TO ONLINE SOLUTIONS
With the recent Royal Mail Strike, Meritsoftware.co.uk has seen a 300% increase in the number of enquiries into electronic timesheets, payslips and invoicing.
The recent Royal Mail postal strike has forced many recruitment companies to re-evaluate their distribution methods for payslips and invoices, with many companies now looking at electronic solutions such as email, online timesheets, e-invoicing and e-payslips.
Sam Radion of MeritSoftware.co.uk said The internet is not affected by picket lines, the wrong kind of snow or someone giving you the wrong postal address and we have seen at least a 300% increase in calls to our company from recruitment agencies looking for electronic alternatives to sending physical mail, our online product imerit.co.uk is seeing a massive increase in sign-ups.
Online payslips and timesheets allow temps to go directly to a website and submit timesheet information through a simple web portal. Temps can also use the same portal to download their payslips without the need for printed payslips and in a far more secure manner than email. Sam added online timesheet and payslip systems arent even affected by a temp giving you the wrong email address as the temp simply logs in with a username and password.
Merit Software has been providing solutions to the recruitment industry since 1997 and has seen a gradual shift in the marketplace towards connected solutions. Sam continued With the majority of people in the UK now having access to the Internet, online solutions are definitely the way forward
