Nick Fishman of employeescreenIQ had a great idea – he took his microphone to SHRM and interviewed players in the industry. The podcast of our interview with Nick is available on their web site: http://blog.employeescreen.com/2008/07/15/podcast-jennifer-brogee-product-development-manager-mystaffingprocom/
Short summary of the interview: We emphasize the need for applicant tracking software companies to create software that is easy-to-use, on-demand, and customizable by the user, without the need for pulling in a single geek. Our model is to create modularized software – so you only pay for, are trained on, and see what you want, when you want it. This creates software easily molded to each customer, and saves time and money.
