A mobile infrastructure keeps up with real life.
Executive recruiting isn’t a 9-to-5 job. New candidates, openings, and placements crop up constantly, in phone calls, e-mails—even offhand remarks on a golf course. Whenever an executive gets a promotion, starts looking for a change, or becomes available for work, a recruiter needs to know, and to alert the network as fast as possible.
Anytime, anywhere, from any device.
The employees of Massachusetts-based firm ZurickDavis relied on slow, inefficient channels of relaying information, such as e-mail, or even face-to-face conversation, before it upgraded to a custom-built mobile application.
Implementing the cloud-based infrastructure meant that anyone at the firm could access, update, and share on a network from anywhere in the world. Even on the front seat of a golf cart, heading for the 18th hole. Suddenly, job opportunities, candidate profiles, and current and past search data were always up to date and always accessible.
Having a mobile system has helped ZurickDavis fulfill positions 25 percent faster than it could before. Staffers now work remotely as well as at the company headquarters—a change that has helped the firm save rent on office space.
The company’s move now looks like common sense: an estimated 35 percent of the world’s workforce is now mobile.
