As you probably already know, there are many different types of data that you will use as part of running a recruitment business.  In this blog we are focusing on three main types which are the customer, the active job role and the candidate.

You will also be fully aware of the phrase “Time is money” and finding and placing the right candidate for a customer is usually time restrained. In most circumstances matching people, skills and location can be a challenge when time is an issue.

You will probably have access to multiple databases of candidates. If you have a dedicated CRM, you may have all the data in one place, and you’ll be able to search on skills for a given role.

But with Mapsimise, using geospatial will change the way you see your data and will help you relate everything by location.

In the demo below you can see how the key information can be brought together.

One of the great advantages of using maps in Mapsimise is that you get to see many different types of information in a single view, so immediately you can see relatable information about job roles, candidates and customers.  This also means you can have an instant understanding of where suitable candidates may live in relation to an active job role.

Below we cover two possible scenarios of where Mapsimise can be used to improve the response to a customer and proactively help a candidate.

Scenario 1 – Quick response to customers

Imagine the scenario where a customer calls and asks for a role to be made active. There is a level of urgency due to project demands and 90% of the work is going to be in two locations that are not near the customer’s office.

You initially may search for candidates and these might have to travel, but using Mapsimise you can easily place custom pins in the location of where the work is and then enter the skills into a filter and search by a given radius, which may be 10 to 15 miles or any customer distance.

This type of quick filtering will help you potentially find the right candidates in just a few clicks.

Scenario 2 – Placing a candidate with no active jobs in a location.

Another scenario may well be supporting candidates. Imagine being able to see what candidates are available by location and matching these with existing customers that are close by. I know as an employee if I was contacted by someone placing a candidate that was in my local area, I would be more likely to take a look.

Mapsimise can help by displaying all the accounts you work with and all current active candidates by location, which might mean an ability to place locally. This would also benefit the candidate having a less of a drive or commute.

Mapping data and route planning is helpful to many different business types in many different ways. This article just gives a few examples of using recruitment data effectively with geospatial tools.
