Working in human resource business today is knowledge based activity.
Creating a centralized CV Registry required integrating data from different sections: Job info, CV info, documents info, so the operators have fast access to these information sources. Furthermore, the CV Registry needs to be updated every 24 hours with the latest CVs, Jobs, by implementing the performance and response time demands on the application. Based on employer’s request in terms of skills, location, experience, etc., matchmaking processes need to be fast and reliable in order to find best available resources. Software solution needs to be accessible by different operator levels each with partial access to database data.
Solution by Ropardo
We designed an easy-to-use, web-based application to respond to all recruiting needs. The application allows tracking all the recruiting activities, including but not limited to managing resumes, candidates, employees and external vendors, as well customer requests.
Also, the application provides capability to publish Requisitions / Job Orders in the front End (website). The web-based CV’s Registry application captures and tracks a CV and Job offer where the CV was proposed, the status of the response for a Job Offer. This provides the operator with up-to-date information about CVs, Job Offers, and Documents. TYPO3 was recommended to the client made based on the following grounds:
- It already offers 40% of the functionalities needed;
- Usability is a particularly a strong issue;
- Being open source offers maximum flexibility for adding functionality;
- Being PHP-based means combining proven technology with swift and cost-effective development.
Brusch introduced their project requests to Ropardo and, based on the information included in the RFP document, a competitive project proposal was built. The proposal was created by one of our high level consultants for web applications and, at the client’s request, we offered a fix price model for this RFP.
The Project Manager at Ropardo decided to use a modified waterfall software development model (waterfall model with feedback). Brusch personnel were involved in all stages of the project to assure that all requirements from RFP are achieved.
Our team defined the application architecture, software development and testing (quality assurance).
- flexibility of the application
- accessibility from anywhere (based on internet connection)
