Agency Owner

We are getting more orders quicker and are placeing more candidates quicker because we know who is available

updatedge automatically updates our systems with the latest availability of the agency workers we represent.

It saves us time and money every day, enabling our recruitment consultants to speak to clients and candidates about work rather than availability. We don’t access the free portal as the data is sent directly to our own applications.

updatedge has increased the number of bookings we are making, it makes us more competitive, it has reduced our costs and significantly improved our customer service.

Recruitment Consultant

updatedge has been brilliant – I am getting more orders directly from my schools

It has saved me, my colleagues and candidates so much time.

I don’t have to chase for availability and I am filling more assignments quicker because I have better information.

My clients are offering candidates opportunities and simply let me know to send assignment confirmations.

I’ve invited all my contacts to use the mobile app and they are saving time too.

Wasted administration costs

16.67% or 75 minutes per working day is spent chasing availability.

There are 3 availability changes per week per candidate.
