Cornwall, NY July 9, 2010 (PRWEB) July 7, 2010 - Contacts and e-
mail communication are now easily synchronized between Microsoft Outlook and AST’s fully integrated staffing software system.
Easily move contacts and email between Outlook and AST's staffing software system.
With the touch of a button, e-mails sent and received within Outlook are automatically documented in AST’s staffing industry software and associated with the applicant/candidate/employee or client contact to whom they were sent. If the relationship does not exist in the software, a short form pops up in Outlook allowing you to quickly create the relationship in your staffing company’s AST system. This integration with Outlook is part of a larger initiative to make AST’s staffing software easy to use and adapted to the way people naturally do their daily tasks.
In addition to the ever expanding web interface throughout AST’s software, this feature allows AST to provide the power of a sophisticated fully integrated staffing software system in a package that is easy to use and highly functional.
Taking advantage of Microsoft’s Add-ins feature, AST added a button-bar in Outlook that their clients use to intuitively select and move e-mails and contacts back and forth between Outlook and their staffing industry software. Since Outlook is used as the primary communications tool for many business users, AST has automated the process of keeping e-mails and contact information synchronized between both applications. Existing or new contacts in Outlook can generate new applicants/employees/contacts and customers in the AST system’s database.
AST expects these features to substantially enhance the productivity of the service and sales departments in our clients’ staffing companies.
