|Encore Technical Staffing is a staffing
company specializing in the placement of high tech
professionals on a contract basis. Encore focuses
on maintaining low margins, enabling Encore to charge
clients less while paying contractors more. As Encore's
Web site states: "Encore's low margins enable
us to offer the candidate a better rate than our
competitors. We count on our ability to provide
you with the best talent because we know that we
can provide the best wages for our consultants."
Encore achieves its low
margins by maximizing efficiency and minimizing
overhead. One step Encore has taken for maximum
efficiency is switching to dtSearch Web. "We
originally purchased the desktop version, then
did an upgrade to dtSearch Web," said Dan
Wooldridge, Senior Partner, Encore Technical Staffing.
"dtSearch Web is a wonderful product. We
run it on about 1.8 million resumes and it's great."
Added Mr. Wooldridge: "The customer support
is awesome as is the product!"
Encore knows that providing precise matches to
its clients' job requirements is the single most
important part of the staffing business. The company
is committed to providing its clients only with
candidates that they would hire. To ensure that
Encore provides only great matches for its clients'
requirements, Encore has developed solid processes
that help us evaluate which candidates to present
to its clients, starting with precision job order
"The web version gives us both the security
and access we needed to support our virtual environment,"
says Mr. Wooldrige. "And the ability to customize
the web interface to our own needs is great! We
now have business locations in Hawaii, Oregon and
California. The cost to do that without the ability
to go virtual and the capabilities of dtSearch would
have prevented us from that growth. In addition,
it allows us to hire better people for less as the
location of the recruiters becomes transparent to
the client." "We also recently started
using dtSearch Web against our internal documents
as well and have almost completely eliminated our
paper files by scanning our internal checks, bills,
payroll reports, contracts, agreements, time sheets,
statements, job orders, commissions reports, etc.
into PDF files and storing them on a secure section
of our internal network. We have an index update
twice daily and all the documents are available
in seconds. In past positions I've held, I've always
had an executive assistant that handles all the
filing for me as that is certainly not my strong
suit... however with this process, I have eliminated
most of that need. One more way we cut our overhead."
"Before starting Encore almost 5 years ago,
I was the CFO/CIO of another staffing company, where
we used a competitor product. dtSearch is by far
superior in performance and function, is more competitively
prices and the customer support is substantially
