  • Move, edit, and copy applicants between jobs they fit into.

Challenge

As an agency, Hagvangur needed a better way to collaborate with their clients on hires.

Solution

With 50skills, Hagvangur was able to grant their clients access to jobs, down to a single application, in an easy and secure way.

Stefanía Hildur Ásmundsdóttir
"Because we are a recruitment agency, we needed to give our customers a better platform to view applications and information about candidates. 50Skills met all those requirements perfectly".

Controlling access to applications is highly crucial to Hagvangur. 50skills lets them give clients access to jobs or candidates and can be controlled down to a view of a single application.

Easy and successful transition between systems

One of Hagvangur's experts has worked with them for 13 years. She was there for the transition from their old software to 50skills.

Inga S. Arnardóttir
"Before 50skills, we had to forward applications via email to give our clients. Not only was it more time-consuming, but also there was a risk of applicants getting lost in clients' inboxes. The transition to 50skills was very smooth. The 50skills team was there every step of the way."

Consultant

When onboarding a new client, 50skills makes sure that the transition is as smooth as possible. We offer a 24/7 customer service chat directly from your 50skills profile. We offer training, but we also have detailed videos and help content for most product functions.

"We didn't expect such a smooth transition. From what we had been told, we thought we weren't going to be able to move data from our old system to our new one. With 50skills, it was no issue and handled perfectly. Their customer service and the ability to customise workflows is one of their biggest pros".

"A lot of our work takes place in 50skills, so we must solve issues quickly and efficiently. The 50skills' response time is one reason I would recommend 50skills for other companies looking to streamline their hiring process ".

Better collaboration with team members and clients

As an agency for multiple clients, Hagvangur needs to be able to collaborate with clients.

"The product is extremely user friendly. We like the fact we can offer our clients a simple yet safe platform to carry-out hires. We have been able to speed up the hiring process for our clients since switching to 50skills."

Stefanía adds that 50skills' quick response time is crucial for Hagvangur and says:
