The Experts is an IT professional staffing company based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Founded 12 years ago, the company now has 13 offices around the country and works with about 600 contractors. The Experts use BrightMove, a SaaS system tailored for recruiting agencies, to keep track of their clients' needs and the internal "resource developers" who manage the contracts. "It's very helpful," says The Experts executive vice president Tim McLean. "We post all our requirements to Florida job boards. Through BrightMove, applicants can go to our portal and fill out an application form." But the system doesn't manage only Florida applicants. "Resource developers spend their time searching for candidates, on job boards, at career fairs, and so on. When they find a candidate, they import them into the database. A recruiter in Texas may find someone that a recruiter in Virginia can utilize." The bottom line, says McLean: "BrightMove allows us to work together as a cohesive unit. We can recruit on any position anywhere in the country."
