Hiring Hurdles Upman Placements Faced

Upman faced many hiring challenges because of the limitations of its previous cloud-based ATS. Here are several negative consequences they encountered.

Roadblock 1: Previous Cloud-based ATS was Less Secured

Upman faced lots of security issues while using their previous cloud-based ATS software. Their Recruiters sifted through endless streams of data and often felt like sailors lost in a foggy sea as they were unable to see the shores of efficiency and security.

Their reliance on this cloud-based system was like building castles in the air - tall and promising, yet lacking a solid foundation that is essential.

Also, entrusting sensitive candidate information to the cloud felt like sending ships into a storm without a compass. For the HR consultancy company, fears of data breaches and loss of control over valuable information arise.

Roadblock 2: Past System Lacked Customisation

The customisation they desperately needed was like a distant island for Upman – visible, yet unreachable. They cater to different clients in various regions and need to tailor the software based on the client’s hiring needs.

Each time they tried to customise the cloud-based hiring software to the specific processes their clients wanted, they found themselves struggling in a net of limitations, as the software provider was unable to tailor the system to their exact requirements.

This realisation led them to look for a solution that is more secure, customisable, and installed on Upman’s server so they will get total control of the system.

Roadblock 3: Faced Team Collaboration Hurdles

The recruitment team at Upman struggled immensely to find harmonious collaboration because of communication gaps. Hence, the team failed to develop a synchronised understanding of recruitment goals, and candidate profiles seemed like a distant dream.

This disjointed approach often led to conflicting opinions and delayed decision-making, hindering the recruitment process's fluidity and effectiveness.

This lack of effective collaboration not only slowed down the hiring process but also impacted the quality of hires, leaving Upman Placement in a challenging position to fulfil its promise of delivering top talent to its clients.

The iSmartRecruit On-premise Recruitment Solution

To mitigate the above challenges, Upman started looking for self-hosted recruitment tech solutions and discovered iSmartRecruit On-premise ATS. It elevates positive candidate experience and empowers hiring excellence.

By hosting iSmartRecruit’s recruitment software on its own servers, Upman Placements is able to maintain complete control over its sensitive recruitment data, which reduces the risk of external breaches. It significantly strengthens data security and control for the company.

This setup allows Upman’s recruitment team to enforce strict security protocols and adherence to internal and regulatory compliance standards. This way, they were able to manage and secure data, which is crucial for their company.

“I must say that implementing iSmartRecruit's on-premise recruitment solution gave us unparalleled control and security over our recruitment data. Now we’re assured that our sensitive information is securely managed in-house and aligning perfectly with our strict data policies."
