Major Maintenance Planned for April 25

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

Main Sequence will be conducting major maintenance in our primary datacenter starting Saturday, April 25 at 10AM EDT (25 April, 2015 2PM UTC/GMT). The work is expected to continue for four to six hours. This major maintenance will include new power systems and internetworking arrangements, requiring power-down of multiple devices and services.

  • During the maintenance work, your internal accounts will be redirected to a Main Sequence secondary datacenter, and will be available for access.
  • Please note that your account will be limited to read-only status during the interval when the primary datacenter is offline.
  • Your IMAP email service will continue to function, but you will be unable to download new messages during the maintenance window.
  • Job applicants may continue to view job postings, but they will receive a maintenance message when attempting to apply during the work period.

Main Sequence plans all maintenance activity to involve the least practical amount of downtime and we regret any inconvenience this work may entail for your organization.

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.

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News, PCR Updates

The release of PCRecruiter 9 has been a great success. Over the past few months, hundreds of PCRecruiter users have come online with the new version and the feedback has been tremendously positive. We are pleased to announce the first major update to PCRecruiter 9 has been released to our hosted customers. Included in this update:

  • The Resume Inhaler's 'Connection Settings' panel now accepts PCRecruiter 9 login URLs. No update is required for users of the current Resume Inhaler (v3.3.15)
  • The PCR Capture extension for Google Chrome has been improved to recognize additional data sources.
  • The first version of our new 'Lite Extensions' have been released. The 'Lite' extensions are a responsive-design ready, mobile-friendly job board for PCRecruiter web postings which can be used in place of or in addition to your classic PCRecruiter web extensions. Enabling of this feature may require adjustment of your existing job board implementation, or may not apply to your particular needs with this initial release.

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.
