As a software provider to businesses in over thirty-five countries, we consider ourselves a conscientious member of the international business community. With that in mind, Main Sequence Technologies recently donated several hundred dollars to Foodland.com’s Kōkua Japan campaign, helping to raise money for the victims of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.  Kōkua, as our Hawaii-based software trainer Greg explained at a recent company meeting, is a Hawaiian word meaning “help”, with a connotation of community and friendship.

The opportunity presented itself while our CFO, Gretchen Kubicek, was in Maui for the Management Recruiters International Pacesetter Conference. Seeing the fundraising Kōkua Japan t-shirts at Foodland, Hawaii’s largest locally owned and operated grocery retailer, she purchased their entire stock to bring back to Cleveland for the Main Sequence team.  All the proceeds from the shirts go to the Red Cross for relief to the needy in Japan.

The majority of companies can reduce their software costs by up to 20 percent without changing vendors, according to an article by Personnel Today. This can mainly be done by only paying for what you need and working with what you already have.

“We’re spending more than ever on technology, but we’re not paying attention to where that money goes,” Andy Kyte, a research fellow with Gartner Group, said.

Business of all sizes are always looking for new and different ways to save money, but small businesses have a more vested interest in doing so, because they typically have less money to spend. Fortunately, according to an article by Mashable, there are some technology-related steps small businesses can take to save time and money.

“By its very nature, technology is intended to make complicated things simple and expensive things affordable,” the article notes. “Think about sending a bill to a customer; back in the day, it took paper, correction fluid, a stamp and a trip to the mailbox to accomplish this task. These days, it can be as quick and cheap as sending an e-mail.”

As the economy begins to recover and businesses think about hiring again, now is the time to implement an ATS if your company doesn’t already have one. Visit https://pcrecruiter.net to learn more.

There is a lot of advice out there as to what type of ATS you should buy, and all the options can make it quite a daunting process. A recent article from Onrec provides some great advice from business professionals as to how you should go about selecting and implementing an ATS.

Most experts agree that you should first consider what size and scale of a system your business really needs, so that you don’t end up paying for features and solutions you’re not even going to use. In that same respect, the hiring needs of a small business will differ from those of a large company, so each may benefit from using different ATS.
