While most recruiting and staffing firms may choose to cost-effectively deploy their recruiting software using the on-demand model, some have compelling reasons for self-hosting that software as an enterprise. With Pointwing, our goal is to help them achieve the business results they seek, and enterprise hosting of Pointwing gives them one more option in building their business their way.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 19, 2009
At a time when more and more applications are being delivered exclusively via the Internet, VCG has stepped up to give staffing and recruiting firms more choices for software use. Now, in addition to its standard on-demand application service, VCG offers recruiting and staffing firms the option of Enterprise deployment with version 1.4 of their Pointwing Front Office recruiting software (http://www.pointwing.com/pointwing-frontoffice.asp).
Enterprise deployment, or self-hosting, gives technically savvy and capable staffing and recruiting firms the ability to host Pointwing on their own hardware servers at their own location. For many larger firms, this is the preferred method for the hosting of mission-critical applications, as they have more control over access and other factors. In addition, enterprise deployment helps larger firms with dedicated IT resources and staff already in place to better manage their total cost of ownership.
Unlike most of today's Web-browser based, multi-tenant recruiting software applications, Pointwing is uniquely suited for a variety of deployment methods. Built on a robust Microsoft-based smart client, SQL database and Service Oriented Architecture, Pointwing recruiting software can be deployed as a high-performance on-demand, enterprise, or managed services application. This architecture gives Pointwing an edge not only in how it can be deployed and managed, but in its customizability, scalability and ability to integrate with other applications.
Steve Taylor, President and CEO of VCG, said, "While most recruiting and staffing firms may choose to cost-effectively deploy their recruiting software using the on-demand model, some have compelling reasons for self-hosting that software as an enterprise.
