Encourage your supply teachers and staff to update all your consultants through updatedge. Being offered more work is a major incentive for supply staff to keep their schedule up-to-date. Save your business effort and increase the number of jobs your consultants fill.
See What Temp Agencies Are Saying
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.
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 by a typical recruitment consultant chasing availability
There are an average of 3 availability changes per week per candidate.
Even when consultants think they know the availability it often has to be checked.
Chasing availability is a costly task – updatedge can significantly impact that cost.
Recruitment consultants are able to invite as many contacts as they wish to connect with – once the candidate installs the updatedge mobile app and accepts the invitation the consultant is able to see that persons live availability.
No limit to number of users
updatedge includes the ability for your connected agency workers’ availability to be automatically input into your core applications. There is no limit to the number of candidates or recruitment consultants and hirers that can use the updatedge service.
Some recruitment agencies have several consultants representing the same supply teacher – keeping everyone up to date can be difficult when information needs to be shared.
With updatedge each connection is instantly updated reducing uncertainty and increasing the probability that the consultants place the candidate.
