Managed Staffing Credits Ceipal With Helping Them Grow Their Business Through the Economic Downturn of the Pandemic
ROCHESTER, NY — December 10, 2020 — Ceipal, an industry-leading talent acquisition automation platform, and Managed Staffing, one of the top award-winning full-service diversity MSP providers in the industry are highlighting their relationship and great success over the last two years. The successful record of this partnership demonstrates that together these two companies were able to drive submission rates and reduce total expenses. That success continues to the present day amidst one of the most challenging times in recruitment history due to COVID-19.
With more than 100 internal employees and 65 clients (most of whom are Fortune 100 companies), Managed Staffing reliably provides high-quality talent across the U.S. Like most staffing firms, they rely heavily on their ATS to drive business forward. In 2018, they chose Ceipal as their ATS provider, citing three primary reasons for the decision: software configurability, functionality, and price.
As a staffing firm competing in MSP programs, Managed Staffing needed an ATS that configured exactly to their process to ensure maximum productivity. Some of their requirements included customized reports on KPIs, integrations with the company’s native email provider, and the general format of received job requisitions. With Ceipal’s flexible and adaptive technology, Managed Staffing was able to meet each of these software requirements. Another value driver for Managed Staffing was Ceipal’s advanced functionality, including its integrated search functionality.
“The platform was very open and agile. It did exactly what we wanted on a quick timeline,” said Ray Jaffrey, COO of Managed Staffing. “The integrated search and VMS integrations were especially beneficial, enabling my recruiters to search through our own database and all major job boards from within the application. We achieved a 10% increase in submissions per recruiter after adopting Ceipal.”
The final value driver for Managed Staffing is a top priority for every staffing organization — especially during the current economic environment: pricing. At $24 per seat, Ceipal’s ATS platform was about one-third of the price of competing technologies. No one could have predicted what 2020 would bring: hiring freezes, broken supply chains, and overall economic insecurity. But, by providing greater flexibility and functionality, all at an affordable cost, Ceipal’s AI-driven technology enabled Managed Staffing to thrive and succeed even through the global pandemic.
“Like everyone, we were initially blindsided by COVID,” said Jaffrey. “Our first thought was to make sure our employees were healthy and put in a position to succeed. Once those concerns were taken care of, we needed to ask ourselves how we wanted to handle the monumental challenge ahead. We came to discover that Ceipal was our secret weapon through this battle.”
By leveraging Ceipal’s advanced technology, Managed Staffing actually increased their number of submissions during the COVID-19 crisis. The company also took advantage of timely opportunities, such as those in the healthcare space. For example, Managed Staffing was able to respond to clients’ rapid demand for temperature screeners, ultimately leading to growth during COVID-19.
“With Ceipal’s technology we’ve been privileged to help our customers to not only survive during this global pandemic, but also to thrive,” says Sameer Penakalapati, CEO & Founder of Ceipal. “Our support and AI-driven technology provides our customers the tools and resources they need to grow, regardless of how the market is performing. Because of that, Ceipal has also been able to continuously grow its own customer base, while helping to ensure the staffing industry remains strong and healthy..”
