Can I control procurement so orders are not placed with unauthorized vendors?
MatchBoard has extensive facilities to control yet provide flexibility in which vendors your organization deals with. Approved Vendor groups can be set up centrally for the organization. Policies can be set up to disallow purchasing from other vendors, or require approvals for non-standard purchases. Reports are available showing activity with any vendor or vendor group, as well as Exception Reports on non-standard vendor purchases.

Can MatchBoard help ensure that we always get the best negotiated prices from our vendors, instead of list prices that some of our managers may agree to?
Approval requirements can be set up in the system to minimize non-standard pricing. Managers can also get access to the full list of negotiated prices for any type of position for any vendor. In addition, they also get statistical prices paid for similar positions from all vendors. Exception reporting is provided showing purchases with non-standard pricing, or pricing with excessive variance.

We don't have a dedicated recruiter for our contract or permanent positions. Can our Hiring Managers directly use MatchBoard to advantage?
MatchBoard is designed to be used easily and efficiently by Hiring Managers either independently or through dedicated in-house recruiters. Hiring Managers can define and publish their own positions, work with outside vendors, search the Internet, receive and screen resumes, set up and track interviews, negotiate prices and Work Orders, etc. very easily and quickly through MatchBoard. You can also outsource Recruiting duties to us and continue to work through MatchBoard with our dedicated recruiting team.

Our recruiters are based in multiple locations and service all our facilities nationwide. Can they work cooperatively as one team?
Yes. Your recruiters, Hiring Managers, evaluators, procurement personnel, etc. worldwide can work cooperatively together off a single MatchBoard database at one of your offices, so they are all provided real time updates of all MatchBoard activity. So your recruiters in different locations can give each other permission to view (and modify, if necessary) each other's positions, candidates, vendors, etc. They can assign positions or candidates to each other to work on, and even schedule Tasks for each other through the system. Once a position is visible to the recruiter, MatchBoard will automatically alert him to status changes, and schedule important To Do items relating to that position on his home page.

How can we see if any of our current or ex-employees are available for new positions before we seek outside candidates?

You can specifically search internal employees or ex-employees for skills, amount of experience, availability, etc. using the same familiar Search features in MatchBoard that you use for other searches.
