If you have any questions about the work, planning for this maintenance, or any account issues post-restoration, please contact 440-946-5214 ext 3000.. As always, we appreciate your use of PCRecruiter.

Announcing our newest partner, Fee Catcher

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News, Partnerships

Did you know that recruiters lose an estimated $1,000,000,000 in fees every year when clients hire their candidates and don't tell them? The new integration between PCRecruiter and Fee Catcher helps our users to identify these potential "backdoor hires," ensuring that you get paid for every placement you make. Fee Catcher has already helped clients around the world identify thousands of missed placements worth over $15,000,000 in fees.

Fee Catcher is a reporting service that continuously and automatically monitors your submittals, and tracks the movement of your candidates, notifying you when one is hired so that you never miss a hard-earned fee.

Keeping PCRecruiter users profitable and efficient is one of Main Sequence's highest priorities. We encourage you to schedule a call with Fee Catcher to discuss how they can help increase your revenues.

2014 has been a year filled with excitement here at Main Sequence. In addition to the release of PCRecruiter 9, featuring some of the biggest and most exciting changes to our product in its history, we also enjoyed the blossoming of new partnerships, the welcoming of new team members, and even a few new dogs and babies around the office.

In this year's holiday greeting video (below), we invite you to join us for a look back at how far PCRecruiter has come in the past 18 years of development, from our earliest desktop application, to the web version, to our Portal for MS Outlook, to the all-new PCR 9…

(Video greetings from previous years are available in our Season's Greetings from Main Sequence YouTube Playlist.)

In this season of thanks and goodwill, the entire Main Sequence team sends our warmest regards to our friends, customers, and associates close to home and around the world in 70+ countries. We wish you all a happy and prosperous 2015.

PCRecruiter 9 Release

The Main Sequence Technology team proudly to announced the release of PCRecruiter 9 in October 2014. This release was the culmination of a multi-year process to thoroughly modernize and improve PCRecruiter’s user interface, architecture, and functionality, and is the result of countless hours of work by our entire team, with the invaluable partnership and contributions of fifty PCRecruiter 9 beta customers. We thank everyone who helped to create what is the most sweeping and exciting update in our history.


  • Virtually the entire interface is updated to reduce clicking and scrolling, with streamlined common workflows and more intuitive navigation. The release also includes useful new capabilities including the new PCR Capture tool for Facebook, Indeed, and other key social platforms, new single-box quick lookup to retrieve records of any type, and more to come (including mobile-friendly candidate experience, multiple hiring pipelines, and other powerful enhancements). PCRecruiter 9 uses the latest automated development lifecycle tools and coding environments to help us add new features more quickly and efficiently than ever before.


PCR 9 All-New UI

  • PCRecruiter 8 users on can switch immediately! Just fill out this brief form to get started.
  • Customers hosting PCRecruiter on their own hardware are able to install PCR 9. Some fees and feature limitations apply for self-installed clients.


  • As always, Main Sequence strives to maintain maximum comfort and flexibility for our customers, and therefore PCRecruiter version 8 will continue to be available and operational for the foreseeable future.
  • While it is possible to use both PCRecruiter 8 and 9 on the same database, we do not recommend using both versions with the same user login, as custom screen layouts and other user-level preferences updated with PCR 9 are not compatible with older versions.
  • Our new features and engineering efforts are always focused on the current release, so we encourage all of our customers to consider moving to version 9 in the coming year.


  • PCRecruiter 9 is available to all of our customers at no additional charge!
  • Self-installed PCR 8 customers may be assessed an update fee. Ask your PCRecruiter representative.


  • PCRecruiter 9 is designed to perform optimally in the Google Chrome browser and will work on any current Mac or Windows machine.
  • PCRecruiter 9 is also tested for current versions of Safari and Internet Explorer, although limited enhancements may only be available to Chrome users.
  • Functions such as direct resume editing, calendar alarm pop-ups, and file attachment management may not work on older operating systems (e.g. Windows Vista or earlier).

PCR 9 Login


  • The PCRecruiter Portal for Microsoft Outlook and the Resume Inhaler are compatible with PCRecruiter 9. Portal users will need to update/reinstall the plugin.


We look forward to your feedback and to your enjoyment of the best PCRecruiter ever!
