Driver Hire Streamline Recruitment Managed Service
Driver Hire ( www.driverhire.co.uk ) is the largest specialist transport and logistics recruitment company, offering temporary and permanent driving jobs and non-driving work, along with supplying drivers and logistics staff to companies throughout the UK and Ireland.
As a successful recruitment business, Driver Hire was working with several clients who requested that they provide a full managed service solution. In order to do this Driver Hire required a flexible web based system which could manage all aspects of their clients’ recruitment process from job requisition through approval to sourcing, timesheet management, payroll and invoicing.
Client requirements could be generated from any number of locations and for bookings ranging from hours to weeks; the recruitment of temporary staff would be through local Driver Hire offices and supplying agencies. In order to manage this, Driver Hire required a system which was able to replicate their client’s organisational structure and automate the process as much as possible, to reduce the time involved and administration.
Driver Hire selected NetResourcer from HotLizard. Developed to manage all aspects of the recruitment process NetResourcer has multiple interfaces for all parties involved, including the hiring manager, supplying agencies and the temporary worker. Booking templates and rates are all managed centrally, for individual clients, ensuring that requisitions can be created quickly as possible; recognising the fact that the driver business is one of the fastest recruitment sectors.
Integrating with the existing Driver Hire systems and using NetResourcers powerful quick book functionality, means that candidates can be found and assigned to bookings within minutes. The automated agency release system is designed to ensure that if Driver Hire is unable to source within the specified timeframe, the booking is automatically released to 2 nd and 3 rd tier suppliers. In the distribution sector, time is of the essence and lorries cannot be sat without a driver. Web based online timesheets means that temps can complete timesheets at their convenience and authorisation is managed by hiring managers and the Driver Hire account managers.
Once approved all payroll information is exported to the Driver Hire payroll and financial systems for seamless invoicing and payroll management.
Detailed management information allows Driver Hire’s Account Managers to provide their clients with accurate information on a wide variety of information including margin analysis, temps working and agency performance.
‘Driver Hire selected HotLizard for this project after an extensive evaluation process with a range of market leading recruitment software suppliers. HotLizard stood out for their flexibility and willingness to work in partnership with Driver Hire to develop the product and deliver a tailored solution we can use to add real value and savings to our customers operations.
The project has been very successful to date and although only in its early phases is already getting great feedback from our customers and helping us further develop our growing business.’
Jeremy Neale Driver Hire IT & Quality Director
‘Driver Hire came to Hotlizard with a very detailed brief, we worked with their team to produce a functional specification that met their requirements but also used the NetResourcer functionality in the most effective way. Driver Hire now have a complete system allowing clients, 3 rd party agencies and Driver Hire offices to submit jobs, assign candidates and complete and approve timesheets quickly and efficiently while maintaining appropriate levels of access. I’m pleased to say that Driver Hire has had very good feedback from their clients and we are currently investigating a second phase to the project’.
