Cloud solution experts AppLayer launch RecruitBox, a fresh approach to recruitment IT administration

Share Article

With demand for cloud within the recruitment industry on the increase – hosting providers in addition to cloud services, recruitment application hosting and expandability need to cater for high staff turnover, turn-key mobility, staff productivity, worries of employee data theft and reducing time and costs. RecruitBox launches with this firmly in mind.


We have spoken to a number of MD’s of recruitment companies who are looking to move to the cloud and virtualise their existing systems

The recruitment industry suffers huge losses due to internal data theft. Research from Mishcon suggests 86% of confidential data stolen is client and applicant contact details. The majority of theft is from either disgruntled employees or those leaving to join competitors and set up their own agencies. This increasing problem is difficult to prevent and costs recruitment agencies vast sums in lost revenue.

Chris Davies, Sales Director of AppLayer, agrees this is in keeping with data the company has found through their own research and clients; “We have spoken to a number of MD’s of recruitment companies who who are looking to move to the cloud and virtualise their existing systems. They have highlighted concerns over management of staff turnover, platform reliability, employee productivity and data theft. Their key motivators are to increase placements, minimise time wasted on IT engineering tasks and reduce their IT spend.”

“In response to this we have developed RecruitBox – a cloud IT platform which allows recruitment agencies to run all their recruitment software, applications and desktops from a central point. The solution is turn-key allowing the addition of mobility and tools to help monitor and control employee productivity and prevent internal data theft. This allows companies to configure the system to match their business culture. Some smaller companies may focus on mobility – preferring to be nimble with 24/7 access anywhere. Larger organisations may prefer lockdown of apps and restriction of websites for key personnel within the office – with mobility only accessible for management.”

With research from Gartner showing a rapid growth of companies adopting the cloud each year it is important for companies to consider a solution which best suits their business instead of simply adopting a “best fit” approach from what’s on offer.

The offering is presented via a Windows Hosted Desktop which provides a secure, highly scalable working environment to each employee. Recruitment applications run from back-end cloud servers which are easily expanded in response to increased demand. This is administered by the RecruitBox cloud panel where managers and IT staff can add and remove employees or resources quickly.

By removing the need for local installations and drives, directors have a complete overview of the type of environment and data they want their employees to access. For those employing monitoring and additional security they can have visibility over every single action carried out by an employee as well as full control over the desktop.

Chris Davies sums up, “We have created a solution integrating several pieces of key technology to work smoothly together to provide the ultimate in internal and external data security protection. There are also several productivity benefits to help directors drive revenue.”
