In the past year, we’ve observed businesses shifting to meet the demands of operating in a digital world due to the hardships created by COVID-19. For those in charge of the technology that powers your organization, you may be wondering how to move you or your client’s talent acquisition away from legacy systems, or worse – paper!
Whether you’re ready to source a recruiting solution for the first time or looking to migrate away from an antiquated existing system, the decision tree will quickly reach the question of whether to look at on-premise or cloud-based solutions. Let’s look at the cost-benefit of each. We think you’ll see that if your recruiting system or offering isn’t already in the cloud, it’s time to take it online!
A Whole New World
Even once the COVID-19 pandemic loosens its grip, the way we work and recruit has changed forever. Agile business practices, remote and hybrid work situations, and the use of technology that supports doing business online will become the new standard.
From applicant tracking to employee engagement, the recruiter’s job is vast and they need tools to juggle it all. Provide the recruiters using your solution with the software they need, and watch your business take off.
On-Premise Recruiting Solutions
An on-premise applicant tracking system (ATS) is one that is managed internally, from implementation to upgrades. They offer control and security of sensitive employee data. However, these systems require substantial hardware, floor space, and financial resources. On-premise human resource systems were once the rule, though the innovation in cloud-based solutions has lessened the gap.
But a self-hosted HR system isn’t unrealistic. These benefits hold today despite the emergence of cloud-based solutions:
- Ownership and total control
- Security and compliance
- No recurring monthly expenses
With complete oversight of the system and resource management, some organizations will find value in maintaining their HR system on local hosting.
Cloud-Based Recruiting Solutions
With a cloud-based system, the provider takes care of all the servers and software management, all you need is a phone or computer to access the system. A quality cloud-based hiring software offers different benefits than on-premise platforms:
- Access your system from anywhere, anytime, on any device
- Fast implementation
- Managed IT, maintenance, and upgrade cycles
- Fixed costs
If flexibility is on your mind, look no further than a cloud-based recruiting software. With the ability to access remotely and the option to customize the application to your needs, you’ll enjoy full connectivity with your new recruitment tech stack. All you need is an internet connection.
“Nearly three-quarters of cloud software users believe that technology has made finding great talent easier than ever,” says Information Age.
