White Paper for recruitment agencies considering IP telephony
The UK jobs market has been in the doldrums for over six years, but employment figures are looking stronger than they have for some time. This means recruiters are set to experience their busiest months – September and October - for many years as people look to enter first time employment, switch jobs or change their careers. It also means a more competitive business environment among recruitment agencies as they seek to attract employees and the best candidates.
“Compared to what it was like back in 2008, communications technology has developed to a point where it enables recruitment agencies to operate much faster and more efficiently,” says Rafael Cortes, Marketing Manager, Foehn. “Recruitment consultants typically make heavy use of their telephone systems and this is not only an area where agencies can save significant amounts of money but also do a lot more with the features available through modern Internet Telephony (IP).”
Hosted IP telephony systems can provide all the features of traditional systems but a far lower cost. Such features provide recruitment agencies with a plethora of communications tools that they can use to good effect.
For example, with accurate and timely call logging and reporting, agencies can have comprehensive and clear visibility of detailed reports of telephony activity with an easy to use management portal accessible from any location.
To help agencies understand what’s available and what to consider, Foehn has compiled a White Paper specifically for recruitment agencies considering upgrading to IP, which also includes seven top tips.
