I chose First Choice Software after a demonstration as it seemed to be very straight forward and offered me all the facilities that I had requested. My decision was also based on a promise of good after sales care and support and in this respect too I have not been disappointed. The Support team have been helpful, friendly and have often gone beyond the call of duty to help me. I am most grateful to all at First Choice Software for helping me with my business at such a crucial stage.

Stephen Lawrence - CEO at Protocol Education
First Choice are providing a phenomenal offer for start-ups like myself. For any new agency keeping costs down is always an important factor, so finding an absolutely free software package that offered all the essential features I needed was fantastic!
Lucy Adam - Managing Director at Adam Appointments
First Choice and the RDB ProNet software have been exceptional since we adopted the system. The database does far more than we could ever use, is simple and easy to use for both experienced consultants and junior research staff. The support process is superb and the constant updates show that First Choice listen to our requests. The training provided around every aspect of the system has enabled us to tailor the database to our organisation and requirements increasing our efficiency and quality of service throughout the business. We have looked at a number of alternative systems and not found anything that provides the functionality of RDB ProNet and such good value.
Mark Dainty - Managing Director at HFG
RDB ProNet has proved to be an excellent choice for Pure Resourcing Solutions and the team at First Choice have always been highly supportive and responsive to our business needs. I believe RDB ProNet is the best product in the market, backed up with responsive, intelligent support.
Ian Walters - Managing Director at Pure Resourcing Solutions
We found the training very beneficial for both our experienced and new Consultants. The transition between the software packages was managed between First Choice and ourselves, with only a few limited teething problems, that First Choice swiftly rectified. All the staff find the new software to be much more efficient and user friendly and allow them to concentrate on their day jobs of producing fees.
Adele Carr - Managing Director
When we formed Howarth Morris Financial Selection in 2006 we wanted to invest in the most up to date recruitment software solution and after considering a number of options RDB ProNet seemed to be the most attractive in terms of functionality, quality and user friendliness. Without doubt their product quality, functionality and high quality service has been instrumental in us quickly progressing to become the North Wests leading independent financial recruiter.
Sean Morris - Director at Howarth Morris
Throughout my career I have used a number of different recruitment software packages and I would whole heartedly recommend RDB ProNet. Not only does the database have a fantastic diary, the client canvassing and applicant contact management functions are excellent! In addition, the support we receive is extremely professional and they have a real understanding of exactly what our business needs. The whole organisation from the initial enquiry through to calls with the Support team we have found everyone at First Choice Software very friendly and helpful. I would recommend RDB ProNet to any company that is looking for a new recruitment package.
Stephen Bowler - Director at Puro Search
Throughout my career I’ve used pretty much all the recruitment software available in the market and found RDB Pro to be the best. I’ve used many software packages and found RDB Pro to be the most functional, easy to use, and backed by the most friendly and responsive team. There is a warm feeling to the company, which has enabled us to form a fantastic relationship - I don’t feel like just another customer, I actually look forward to speaking with them! The great benefit of RDB Pro is its simplicity. I’ve used some very arduous packages where you get can lost in detail and have to input data to the enth degree. Plus, unlike other suppliers, First Choice Software is unique in that it does not penalise small agencies for only having one user, it’s such good value for money. Because the self-help tool is excellent, I hardly ever have to call the support team, but on the rare occasion I have, they have always been very helpful and efficient in answering my query.
Katie Pexton - IT Director at Consulte
We have been using RDB Pro and RDB ProNet for the past 10 years and continue to find the First Choice products a real aid to our business. The software saves us time in all aspects of the job and the continuing development ensures that we stay future proof which is essential given the fast pace of the recruitment market.
Antony Meek - Director at Robertson Sumner
We're very happy with RDB ProNet, chosen for it's excellent search facility. Ongoing customer service and support has been first class.
Melvin Day - Director at Marketing Moves
Talentarc have been using RDB ProNet since our inception and it has proven to be an invaluable tool in assisting our growth. In choosing a product we looked at all the main competitors, several of whom our Directors had prior experience of working with and RDB came out on top across a number of metrics. However the best element of the product is the associated service / help and ongoing development which ensures that RDB ProNet is easy to work with and highly effective. A great product provided by a business that understands customer service!
Simon Samuel - Managing Director at Talentarc
First Choice was a great choice for Dynamic Positions. RDB ProNet is a key tool to our business.
Marcus Hackney - Managing Director at Dynamic Positions
Since using the new ProNet system we have noticed a real difference in how it works for us. In particular we have found it to be more efficient system which is extremely intuitive to use. The tools such as mailshots and email archiving have saved us a great deal of time and it is so easy to send emails / sms directly from the client / applicant files. We have found the support from First Choice to be extremely good, particularly with the inevitable teething issues following transfer. We are sure that as we continue to learn things about the new system it will further enhance the service we can offer to our clients and candidates.
Rebekah Frankcom - Head of Commercial and Communications at Norland
I just wanted to pass my sincere thanks to everyone at First Choice for firstly being so supportive with helping us in a complex transition to Pro NET with an absolute minimum of problems and more importantly for producing a fantastic piece of software that we are already seeing significant benefits from purchasing. When TechNET were evaluating all of the major Recruitment software products on the market it was a very big decision for us as an agency but I can assure any companies considering ProNet / First Choice that we haven’t regretted our decision at any stage of the process and are extremely satisfied with the final product.
Curtis Bailey - Business Development Director at Technet-it
It is not only the software that is superb, the company's service, support and training is also invaluable. The personnel at First Choice Software are always on hand to help and are very patient.
Teresa Maddern - Director at Enterprise Recruitment
Your support team always show great professionalism and are always so friendly and helpful & genuinely an absolute pleasure to deal with, so thank you all very much again. There are many businesses that could take a leaf out of your book when it comes to customer services!
Sarah Stoker - Managing Director at Ocean Consulting
We've been using RDB ProNet and First Choice since 1999. We've found that it adds real value to our IT Recruitment Consultancy and if ever issues arise the support team are quick to respond and resolve with superb efficiency. The intuitive RDB ProNet software really helps us analyse the data and allows us to focus on delivering a first class service from candidates and clients to invoicing. I am positive that we will be using this software for many more years to come!
Kanu Avasthy - Marketing Manager at TSR Select
Compared to our previous recruitment software RDB ProNet is exceptionally faster, more versatile and far easier to use.As a business we operate in an open, honest and friendly manner, driven by equality, fairness and integrity. At the core of this is that we are highly compliant so being able to seamlessly create, manage and send key policy and compliance documents from within the system is invaluable and the unbroken audit trail is essential.You can also tell that RDB ProNet has been built by people that understand recruitment. A great example is the time it takes to add a complete record, including attachments. This is such a frequent task that now takes 40-50% less time to complete and is just one example of an instant time saving.
Jason Norman - Managing Director at Equation Recruitment
RDB ProNet is categorically the best software on the marketplace today. We saw plenty of providers and went through each recruitment software with a fine toothcomb before making our decision and none came close to RDB. The First Choice team have a created a software that is so powerful that I know we use less than half of its full capability, yet we have still been able to see greater returns than we ever thought. The ease of use and ability to customise the software in exactly the way that suits your business makes this a must have product for any business that is serious about recruitment and growth. RDB ProNet is now an integral part to our business and we do not see that changing.
Rohan Shah - Managing Director at Rohan Shah
Quite simply, like the majority of recruitment consultancies, we are not technical! We wanted a reliable system that would be easy to use, would simplify our lives and not create unnecessary work. Previously when we had interviewed a candidate and not had a suitable vacancy for them for several weeks or months, their details would have been filed manually. The system has saved us an inordinate amount of time, it is hassle free and I regard it as a very good investment and one that will provide a quick pay-back.
Justin Kent - Managing Director at Fabric Recruitment
Practicus required a recruitment system that was flexible enough to adapt to our internal business processes but would also integrate with our existing IT systems. RDB ProNet ticked both of those boxes and more. Since its implementation we have found that our productivity has improved. We have found First Choice Software to be very attentive to our requirements and are able to react very quickly when we have needed anything.
Jason Luckhurst - Director at Practicus
RDB ProNet was the biggest IT project that Randstad have ever undertaken... we’ve had fantastic feedback... First Choice have been first class.
Cliff Smith - Director at Randstad
I really enjoyed the RDB training over the last two days. I learned so much about some features that I didn’t know about like the Contract Job Manager and Contract Manager! This should really save some time as I have been running separate spreadsheets for availability and bookings for the last three years. Also, the trainer was absolutely fantastic. Very patient and thorough. I will attend the systems manager course sometime in September or October I suppose once I have my own system up and running.
