Launched integrated website and CRM for recruitment agency start-ups

  • Access Group, software leader for the recruitment market changes the landscape for smaller agencies hungry for growth and results
  • Launching Access Accelerator, an integrated website and CRM solution at the Recruitment Agency Expo in Birmingham
  • This new - and unique - offering is set to draw a crowd, attracting ambitious and entrepreneurial agencies keen to accelerate the performance of their business and easily scale
  • Given the growth challenges that smaller agencies face, this new affordable offering is exactly what the market has been calling for

Over 200 new agencies start-up every month but despite early stage success many fail and only 20% make it to a headcount beyond 10. The challenge is often coping with the admin burden of managing a recruitment engine, updating the CRM and complying with regulations such as GDPR. This often rests with consultants who should be out in front of clients and candidates - earning fees. Then there’s the costs of creating a website that attracts enough quality candidates and provides credibility.

Now, a brand new offering - Access Accelerator - launches at the Recruitment Agency Expo on 2nd October. The software is unique - combining Access’ powerful Recruitment CRM with a candidate attraction web front-end using technology from Volcanic, who are now part of the Access Group.

Recruiters can be reassured that their site is SEO and Google for Jobs optimised with unlimited job postings and GDPR compliance is handled. And with the need for only one provider, there is just one contract with one affordable monthly payment that can be paid on a Direct Debit in addition to the benefits of SaaS.

“We’ve always been leaders in delivering recruitment software that addresses the challenge of productivity and efficiency, but now we’re truly changing the landscape by offering start-ups and SMEs the opportunity to succeed”, says Kevin Thomas, Product Director at Access Recruitment. “Access Accelerator is a complete recruitment engine – an easy to use, ready-to-go solution that unites an impressive looking website that is highly optimised for candidate attraction and engagement - with a powerful recruitment CRM that consultants will love using.”

Implementing, learning and managing software takes time that smaller agencies don’t have. Any new software must be immediately usable and historically there’s been no easy way to integrate the candidate applications into the CRM.  For small or early stage agencies, Access Accelerator is super friendly for time-poor owners who can be up and running in just a week. “Given recruitment is often about faster finger first, we want to help agencies to quickly and easily accelerate their growth with minimal constraints on their time” says Kevin.

It’s a complete candidate attraction and placement engine that gives entrepreneurial start-ups and growing SMEs instant credibility with candidates and clients so they can finally look good and perform even better. With Access Accelerator growth is all but guaranteed. For ambitious players in this market, who want to scale beyond 10 heads, this is the leverage they need.

Access Recruitment are running a special offer - starting from £289 per month for the complete website and CRM package with no setup costs - for smaller agencies who book a demo at Recruitment Agency Expo.
