Quote by Col Levander, Managing Director, Rec Tech Solutions
The biggest issue that I have seen over the years working in sales in this industry is the fact that most people who work in a sales capacity, do not have the skill set capability to safely and accurately interpret awards and agreements” As we well know the “Devil is always in the detail” and many sales professionals simply miss components that ultimately have the knock on effect of payroll errors = unhappy temps and contractors, frustrated payroll teams and clients that are agitated by the very fact that the buyer or end user receives unnecessary internal pressure because invoices are incorrect. This ultimately leads to a messy situation for everyone. As a younger recruitment business owner in the past, I have written off unimaginable and unnecessary amounts of money due to these issues, or have wasted countless hours in cross checking invoices to time sheets to job orders in the Recruitment systems we were using at the time. I never put a cost to it to be honest but it has been huge over the years! As an operational manager, constant review of margin exception reports and identifying margin leakage used to literally drive me crazy! Chasing debtors to meet my DSO targets which ultimately affected my team and my bonuses was also the knock on effect of poor pricing compliance. Having a single resource to accurately quote your business is an industry first and one that will clearly add great value! To think that the majority of Recruitment Management systems in the market just simply cannot quote accurately emphasizes the business need for this service. In defence of the software vendor, It is near impossible for them to stay abreast of this constantly moving target, as dynamic as our industry is, vendors are focussed on other feature enhancements within their platforms. This is another world that we work in and it takes a unique blend of skills to understand it and meet regulatory compliance requirements.
