Overview

Alpha Hire wasn't born overnight. We have been developing, tweaking, and using the Alpha Hire system for over 3 years. We believe what makes our company so unique is our story of inception. Four years ago we were stuck using generic ATS/CRM software just like many other staffing companies. We found it to be useless as many of our recruiters and account managers did not even use the software even though we were paying over $100 per user a month for this application. We sought out an end-to-end solution that could connect our Front and Back Office workflow, but could not find any. We were also seeking a way to reduce the amount of manual entry required in our Job Order Management and Time Card processes. After months of searching we were convinced that there was no system in the market that met our needs, thus we began to develop our own software solution.

We decided to design our program based on the feedback of our recruiters, managers, and administration. Every problem/ inefficiency we were made aware of had a solution. The first thing we sought to do is automate the mundane tasks that take up so much of our employees’ time. Account Managers had to constantly check VMS portals for new Job Orders and when they find the jobs the requirements had to be entered manually. We fixed this problem by implementing a Screen Scraping process. This process checks VMS portals for new Job Orders and automatically populates the jobs right within our system requirements and all. No manual entry required. This is just one of example of the intuitive solutions we implemented for a leaner more efficient business. more...

After Alpha Hire was implemented, we saw something amazing happen. The Recruiters were actually using the features we developed, and Account Managers had more free time to generate leads on new clients. Along with an overall decrease in average time to submission, we found ourselves making more placements and started seeing higher revenues. Our Recruiters came to love Alpha Hire and soon we started to wonder how we ever did business without it.

About a year after implementation, one of our Account Managers found a job at another IT staffing firm. When she made the switch to her new company, she found they were using the same outdated system we were using before Alpha Hire. It was difficult to go back to this software and so she asked her boss if he would be interested in seeing the Alpha Hire system she was familiar with. After seeing a demo, they were immediately impressed and we started implementing Alpha Hire at their location shortly after. Through this unusual introduction, our first client was retained. We then realized not only did we see value in Alpha Hire, but so did others. This is when we decided to spread Alpha Hire as a product and our company was born.
