We all know Temporary staffing is a repeat business process. Unlike permanent placements where a single employee well placed generates a single commission and a single employee less well placed may generate several commissions over time. In the Temp staff business a single employee well placed will generate revenue time after time after time and more likely stay with you as an agency.
There are many factors in doing this quickly and successfully. Keeping a good record of who likes to work where and in turn which of your customers like that worker as a temp is a good part of this process.
Providing compliant candidates instantly on this basis is essential in this age of rapid communications.
Ava advance agency web system (Aaaws) has four methods of getting the right people to the right customers.
- When you first add an employee to the system you (or the worker themselves) can set the distance that they are prepared to travel. Say 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 35 miles etc. Any customer within this radius will be included.
- If you are an agency serving a larger area you can specify a sales region and that person will be bookable to any customer in that (sales) region.
- You can fine tune this by excluding or including any specific customers on a customer by customer basis.
- Finally the selection process can be really fine-tuned by excluding specific areas within any customer and specific jobs for that customer.
The page for adding new employees has geographic lookup for a postcode and this stores their home location. A drop down region selector allows further refinement if your agency is large enough to need separate regions. A similar process is in place for customers.
There are then tick box options for adding preferred customers outside the more general area selected or eliminating any particular employee customer combination. This overrides the general distance or sales region selections. Further specific work areas for a customer and specifc jobs can also be eliminated.
This process seamlessly integrates with the automatic selection lists and automatic texting and mobile apps for customers and workers offers and fills.
