Roswell, GA (PRWEB) April 17, 2006
VCG, Inc., http://www.vcgsoftware.com, today announced the immediate availability of StaffSuite 4.8, a comprehensive solution that enables recruiters and staffing coordinators to reduce time-consuming administrative tasks and focus on revenue-generating activities. Major time-saving enhancements to the premier fully-integrated staffing software include Mass Field Update and Mass Activity Complete.
"A major challenge for recruiters and staffing coordinators is time management," said Peter Carlson, Vice President of Operations for Suburban Staffing. "The latest enhancements in StaffSuite 4.8 enable us to improve recruiter productivity. Now they can complete tasks in minutes that used to take several hours. These enhancements streamline front office operations so that we can better address clients' and contingent employees' needs instead of spending time on tedious administrative work."
StaffSuite 4.8 adds the Mass Field Update functionality to enable recruiters or staffing coordinators to click/select as many contingent employees as they want and update their start date with a single click.
Other Mass Field Updates can include pay rate, bill rate and more. Every Mass Field Update can be viewed as a historical record enabling any user to see what the original information was, what it was changed to and who changed it. All Mass Field Update functionality is permission-based.
Mass Activity Complete enables users to complete activities on the assignment level from the task list. For example, a recruiter could complete an "Arrival Call" activity for any number of contingent employees and simply click the "Mass Complete" button. Mass Activity Complete also creates a historical record and is permission-based.
Steve Taylor, President of VCG, Inc., said, "The new functionality in StaffSuite 4.8 is a direct result of listening to our clients' needs. Every enhancement in StaffSuite 4.8 is designed to improve recruiter productivity and help make our customers more successful. "
An enhanced employee contribution capability gives staffing firms a better way to calculate a more exact gross margin. It enables staffing firms to accurately accrue benefit cost for better tracking of total staffing expenses.
Carlson notes, "StaffSuite 4.8 enables us to better manage our benefit programs for all contingent staff. Now our recruiters are able to negotiate benefit packages with employees who want a flexible program. Our back office staff can easily administer these benefit programs and manage them efficiently and accurately with StaffSuite 4.8. More importantly, this option enables Suburban to retain top talent for our clients while saving money and time."
