Recruiting firm unlocks new revenue stream by converting their data into opportunity.
There’s value in the data
Tens of thousands of hours and over 20+ years of personnel data collection and refinement was locked up in 3rd party software. How could Egret help others in their industry with this information while safeguarding their trade secrets and turning it into a new income opportunity?
Egret Consulting decided to set up a subscription-based platform that they could market to their contacts. This system would expose a subset of information from their closed, third-party software, PC Recruiter. Their subscribers would now have a tool to be able to research the industry, make their own notes, and have a one-stop-shop for them to perform their research. The system would allow users to access it via a monthly fee through a cloud-based application.
Dorian Solutions worked closely with Egret Consulting’s staff to identify the specific information inside PC Recruiter that they wanted to expose to the outside world. After identifying a way to automate retrieval of the data from this closed system, a process was put in place that allowed the information to be placed in a new database that could be used by a new web application. This allowed for maximum control of what information was exposed and safeguarded their current system by disconnecting it from the new system.
Once the database of the new data existed and was automatically syncing with the original database, a web application was built that allowed subscribers to securely browse this new data while paying for access via a monthly subscription. Egret Consulting has full visibility into the usage of the new system through reports and administration tools built into the application.
