Best Staffing Software

Staffing software is used by recruiting and staffing agencies to find and manage candidates on behalf of corporate customers. This type of software facilitates interactions with both candidates and corporate clients throughout the recruitment lifecycle, from job orders to payroll. Staffing products offer many features that can be found in sales-related applications, including pipeline management capabilities and candidate relationship management (CRM) tools. More traditional HR-related features such as applicant tracking and and sourcing tools also can be found in staffing products. Furthermore, staffing software typically includes self-service portals which enable candidates and corporate customers to access and share information like new job opportunities, resumes, cover letters and so on. Recruiters employed by staffing agencies utilize such applications to find, interact with, and evaluate candidates while managers that supervise recruiters can track and monitor the performance of their teams.

Staffing software should not be confused with recruiting solutions which are primarily used by internal recruiting teams. Staffing software may be used together with other HR-related solutions to distribute job openings, source and interview candidates, and manage employee payroll and time.

To qualify for inclusion in the Staffing software category, a product must:

  • Provide job listing features to post and manage client job openings
  • Allow candidates to create online profiles and submit resumes, cover letters and other documents
  • Enable recruiters to match candidates’ profiles with job opportunities
  • Manage various types of work contracts (e.g., part time, limited time agreements, internships)
  • Deliver reports and analytics on the efficiency or the recruiting process, employee productivity, or candidate performance
  • Allow for import and export of data to facilitate HR processes
