Staff Cut Time Spent on Formatting Resumes by Two-Thirds
When Troy Latuff, president of The Blue Collar Recruiter, decided it was time to find a way to streamline resume formatting he looked at a number of different options.
However, there was one solution that stood out above the others – iReformat. In looking for resume-formatting software, Latuff says he searched extensively on Google and read numerous online reviews. Prior to switching to iReformat his company used Acrobat Pro DC, which they found insufficient for their needs.
Now since purchasing iReformat, Latuff says the time staff spend on formatting resumes has declined from 15 minutes per resume to just 2 to 3 minutes.
That time savings has proved particularly beneficial because it has given staff members additional time to recruit more candidates, Latuff said.
How iReformat Works:
iReformat has been carefully designed to automate and simplify resume formatting. Recruiters upload a resume into the software and the software then automatically analyzes the resume and puts it a selected template.
Instead of spending a lot of time manually reformatting the resume it is all done by the software in just a few minutes or less.
One of the things that Latuff and the staff at The Blue Collar Recruiter appreciated was the automatic branding that the software provided them with.
The software gave a consistent format and branding to the company’s resume. This helps build company identity as well as makes things easier for the end recipients who become familiar with the company’s particular formatting.
Additional Benefits Provided by iReformat
Latuff identified a number of benefits his company received from using iReformat. Among the most prominent benefits were:
- Ease of use – the software doesn’t require training to use, it has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to access all the features
- Time savings – as stated above, using iReformat to automatically format resumes saved staff at The Blue Collar Recruiters as much as 10 to 12 minutes per resume. This time savings then allowed staff to spend more time recruiting candidates
- Branding consistency – Now instead of having resumes that varied in formatting depending on the candidate and the staff member handling the formatting, resumes from The Blue Collar Recruiter all looked similar. This made it easy for clients to find specific information they were looking for faster.
- Faster processing – Thanks to the formatting consistency provided by iReformat staff at The Blue Collar Recruiter did not have to spend extra time double and triple checking a resume. They could confidently send it on to clients much faster.
