Is recruitment software really free? It’s a good question. Read on and we’ll explain…
We have been in the recruitment software industry for almost 10 years and we have seen companies come and go. If you look hard enough you will find free recruitment software online. There are some issues with this and these are explained as you read further.
So, you find the free software, now the fun starts and that is because depending on the technology it is written in you will need to host it appropriately online. Once it is hosted and set up, assuming you can do that, you can begin to use it.
The disadvantage of free is that the author cannot rely on it for an income and may not be as responsive as a vendor who gets paid, after all they have to make a living. Without going through every single reason why it may not be a firm foundation for your business the fundamental is that when you get software for your business you need to hold someone accountable in the event of a disaster. A disaster could involve a hosting provider or a software bug and a complete loss of data. The charges we make to our clients include a large proportion for the service you get when you have the software up and running. That is the hosting, backups, firewall, security, updates, live chats, video training, telephone support, updates to name just a few.
