Staffing agencies should be focused on placing qualified, capable people in the right role – not wasting time verifying rates and hours, creating invoices, or worrying about efficiency. Turning a profit is already hard enough, and these time-consuming and tedious manual tasks are inefficient and cut into margins. Current technology might be able to manage some of these tasks, but is it really doing enough?
Disparate systems such as spreadsheet and accounting software and the occasional hand-written reminder might seem adequate, but they limit the ability to recall important information quickly. They are error-prone and leave little room for growth. But with so many available enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems out there, it can be tough for a business to know which is the right fit.
