Why modern platforms can service businesses better than ‘heritage’ one customer type businesses.

Why modern platforms can service businesses better than ‘heritage’ one customer type businesses.

Technology has infiltrated our lives in a huge way since 2000. I say ‘infiltrated’ as if it has somehow carried this out without our knowledge, perhaps ‘invited’ would be a better word.

Whilst tech often seems made to frustrate, it is, undoubtedly better when it works.

I have been working in recent months to bring the MVP for 6prog to market. We have done it but it has not been with out hiccups and I’m certain there are more to come.

When setting out on the journey of starting my own business one friend said to me (whilst looking into a crystal ball) “whatever you do, don’t start a technology business” 

Sage advice but how many traditional businesses are there that can work with the absence of tech? 

6prog stops a number of traditional issues with contract recruitment such as

1/ QUEING 

Client or candidate, your agency will only work as fast as it can depending on what fees you negotiated and where you are in the list [how valuable you are to them.

2/ MARGINS 

Get rid of them. Let’s work to service fees that are consistent and transparent

3/ TIME or TIMEZONES 

Recruiters are asked to work before and after work and ‘call me back at lunch’ … why? this simply pushes up the cost of recruitment. Let’s work sensibly and use technology to communicate in time slots we have available.

4/ NETWORKS

Whether you have a shortlist of approved suppliers or an in-house agency you have immediately limited your pool of resources. Use platforms to capture the whole market. Sorry – another ‘tech beats humans’ point!

5/ CONSENT 

Utilising a members only platform means that all members are consenting to maintaining contact with you. 

6/ DIVERSITY

Platforms that are open to all to join and use have been shown to be preferred to tight verticals or industry specific sites. Open your options to many industries, open your hiring criteria to many talents from sectors and enrich your teams.
