With integrated communication tools, including voice calls, video conferencing, Instant Messaging (IM), and virtual meeting rooms with CRM integration included in the offer, recruiters will be able focus more time on building strong candidate relationships while creating a positive work-life balance.
Members of the REC will also receive a round-the-clock, 24/7/365 service desk with a 30-second response SLA directly to an engineer as well as complete security – benefiting from email protection, data monitoring and proactive system monitoring and reporting. The services provided will support REC members in regulation and legislation compliance, in particular ensuring all reasonable controls are in place and documented for GDPR.
Mark Braund, CEO of RedstoneConnect said, “We are delighted to have been chosen as the REC’s premium preferred IT services partner. Many recruitment companies have been reliant on legacy IT systems for too long and haven’t taken advantage of the performance gains that new integrated IT systems such as ours can provide.
“We are pleased to see that the REC recognises the need for recruiters to have best-of-class IT infrastructure. This partnership will offer REC members the opportunity to get IT- as a Service, which provides increased functionality with flexibility and price enhancement not typically seen in the market. This is a real chance for members to look at how technology can provide better tools for their employees to increase productivity as well as attracting the best talent.”
REC chief executive Kevin Green says, “Recruiters often talk to clients about how to attract and retain talent, but they have to think the same way about their own business if they want to grow. If you’re not using technology to speed up processes and support staff, you could be left behind. And with the GDPR rules coming up, now is the perfect time to think about updating your technology to store data correctly and keep it secure.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with RedstoneConnect, who will provide a tailored service to our members, helping them stay ahead of the curve. With the right systems in place, recruiters can focus on what’s really important – providing an excellent service to clients and candidates.”
