Feature Upgrades

Working with our customer's input and feedback, RapidHire introduces a complete package of software upgrades and enhancements in 2005.  First, RapidHire focuses on improving data entry ease, accuracy and speed, by adding several new features:

HIGH SPEED PULL-DOWN MENU SELECTIONS REDUCE DATA ENTRY TIME AND ERRORS

Recruiters can rapidly enter data by selecting from Pull-Down windows. This saves time and ensures that consistent data is entered for reporting and classification. No programming is required to create specific Pull-Down windows for your company and they may be created right while RapidHire is in use.

Also in our latest release, a Recruiter can select any Pull-Down value by entering only enough leading characters to uniquely identify it and then pressing F1.  The whole value will be placed into the field automatically.  For example, if you have a Driver Qualification Pull-Down Menu value of "6 Years of Greater", you may enter just a "6" in the Driver Qualification field and press F1 and the whole value is placed into the field automatically.  When the value you enter is not unique, the pull-down list will be positioned to the first matching row in the list, thus still saving you time. This is another one of our features which speeds up data entry while the Driver is on the phone.  Back to Top
 

HIGH SPEED STATUS ENTRY & EXPANDED NOTES SCREEN

This new feature again significantly speeds up the phone app process.  Many times, a status of an application is determined by their General Qualification.  To take advantage of this and speed up phone applications, you may have status automatically entered when a particular Driver Qualification is selected.  For example, if you enter "QNI" (Qualified Not Interested), "Opportunity" will be automatically entered in the status field.  Your company can define any status codes you prefer.  And again, the necessary data entry would be have accomplished just by keying in three letter abbreviations.

In addition, F6 now brings up the expanded Notes Screen.  We've greatly increased the notes capacity, plus Date and Time are stamped automatically.  Back to Top
 

SECURE INTERNET AP SSN AND DOB

RapidHire now securely pulls in SSN and DOB.  You will notice that RapidHire iApps™ are encrypted as opposed to other internet apps you often see.

When a dupe SSN comes from our iApp, we assign a temporary SSN and show the "real" SSN in a field to the right of the temporary SSN.  The Recruiter can then look at the other previously entered Driver record and after determining that it is the same Driver, make a choice as to whether to delete the old record, or update the old one with the new info.  Back to Top
 

FIELDS ADDED AND SEQUENCE REORGANIZED ON THE  BASIC INFORMATION SCREEN

The sequence of fields on the RapidHire BASIC INFORMATION screen has been reorganized to better match the flow of the initial phone conversation with the Driver.  For example, the Recruiter now moves from "Position Desired" right into "Qualification", recognizing that if there is a problem with the Driver's General Qualification, that there is no need to enter any additional data in many cases.  The sequence of fields closely matches most Recruiting Department's procedures, and the new sequence will in most cases help phone calls go even quicker with this upgrade from RapidHire. 

In another time-saving upgrade, we have added the DAC Inquiry Permission field and date stamp to the RapidHire BASIC INFORMATION screen.  Now the Recruiter can order DAC reports just as soon as they get a good feeling about the Driver, before going to the QUALIFICATIONS Screen. Orientation date and location are also available now on the RapidHire BASIC INFORMATION screen, so the Recruiter can easily view this frequently-sought information.   Back to Top
 

ADDED CHECK-OFF STEPS, PROCEDURES AND FORMS FOR ORIENTATION SCREEN

Several features have been added to the ORIENTATION screen, including additional check-off steps, orientation procedures, and forms.  Back to Top
 

CUSTOM COLORS

You may now assign colors to any of the Driver Categories.  For example, new Internet Apps of highly-qualified Drivers, could be set to show up as Reverse Blue, and other Internet Apps, as Regular Blue.  NO-Show's could be shown as Reverse Yellow and Show's as Turquoise.   Even though you can identify drivers in a particular category by going to a particular category browse list, the colors can save time by effectively notifying Recruiters when Drivers are automatically placed into another critical category in another browse list.  Back to Top


RapidHire next focuses on how your company's Recruiting Department uses the data collected from the Driver Applications.  We've developed several new features, which simplify many time-consuming functions:

POWERFUL & EASY-TO-USE REPORTS SYSTEM

RapidHire's powerful new Reports System represents a breakthrough in ease-of-use in defining reports.  We have not only copyrighted this feature but are also filing patent applications.  Among other great features, recruiters may sort, select, count and print reports based on any fields that show on any of the RapidHire work screens.

The database name of all fields is displayable via the same screens that the recruiters use.  Selection of Drivers is significantly simpler and at the same time, complex selections can be made without resorting to programmer-oriented coding of SQL statements or parenthetical expressions.  Existing report layouts can easily be copied and modified to make new ones.  Back to Top
 

POWERFUL & EASY-TO-USE FORM LETTERS, MAIL MERGE AND EXPORT TO EXCEL

RapidHire's new Mail Merge / Form Letter capabilities use exactly the same specifications as the Reports System, except that results generate a data source for Microsoft WORD form letters.  Your imagination is the only limit to the use of this feature. 

RapidHire also gives you the option to create files to be directly brought into Microsoft EXCEL, either as a new Excel document or for importing directly into previously defined spreadsheet.  Back to Top
 

FOLLOW-UP MANAGEMENT

This initial version of RapidHire's new Follow-up System integrates with our Form Letters / Mail Merge process.  It allows you to specify a follow-up action date, action type and form letter name, and action taken with date.  This information allows selections to be made for form letters, but in addition, any other type of action such as a call back can be specified.  Actions which are overdue are shown in a special browse list.  Actions to be performed today are shown in another browse list.  Actions either overdue or due today are shown in another browse list.  Back to Top
