Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
VCG, LLC, the developer of software solutions and services that power successful recruiting and staffing companies, today announced the release of version 1.2 of its Pointwing software - an all-new, advanced system for third-party recruiting and customer relationship management. Pointwing features system customization and user interface personalization, account management, resume parsing, searching and two-way Microsoft Outlook integration.
Pointwing version 1.2 improves recruiter success in today's talent-driven economy by enabling personalization or customization of the working user-interface environment at either the company or the end-user level. At the company level, Pointwing makes it possible to customize screens, such as adding, removing and rearranging fields (including user defined fields) to aid in business process management. End users can personalize their own user interface grid layouts for more flexible handling of their tasks and data.
To improve communications between every contact point and reduce the sales and candidate placement cycle time, Pointwing Front Office also features full two-way Microsoft Outlook integration.
Synchronized appointments, tasks, emails and contacts between Pointwing and Microsoft Outlook provide consistent and effective candidate and customer relationship management. Users can access Outlook information from within Pointwing, parse resumes and create a new record from an email, and associate attached documents with records in the system. On-the-go recruiters and sales staff can access their Pointwing tasks, calendar appointments, contacts and emails through Microsoft Outlook from a variety of mobile devices such as smart phones and PDAs.
Pointwing's integrated resume parsing features artificial intelligence and HR-XML standards to reduce the time and effort recruiters spend on resume handling. Pointwing easily parses virtually any resume document file type for contact information, skills, job history, education history, licenses and certifications. A single click then creates candidate or employee resource records from the parsed resumes.
Pointwing Front Office also offers advanced searching capabilities that help to reduce the effort of time-consuming candidate database searches. A user's saved searches can also be 'published' and shared with other users for team collaboration.

Pointwing version 1.2 is available today as an on-demand software as a service or as a managed services application. Additionally, VCG offers Pointwing as a complete front office recruiting solution with integrated MS Exchange and Outlook hosting for 360-degree communications. This enables professional recruiting firms to reduce their upfront costs and total cost of ownership while easily scaling the application to their growth.
