Gopher's Super Glue Busting Options
Of course the down side of getting your data unstuck from your
current ATS vendor is that it opens a security hole for owners
of the recruiting entity. Yes, it is true some of the most
trusted recruiters have walked away with valuable data and
started their own recruiting firms. "Tell me it ain't so
Joe". It is a sad but sorry truth of the industry but know that all
is not lost. BlackDog has dealt with this issue for 25 years.
Not just anyone can use Gopher's unsticking tools because they
are password protected with built in stealth activity tracking devices.
Tracking alarms work best when crooks do not know were they are. Need a Gopher Security Review? Contact us.
Export to database - This is the nuclear
option. All the data a recruiting firm must have in order to move on to
another ATS is here with this option. Most importantly the
firm does not need "permission" from BlackDog and does not need
a BlackDog technician to do it. Why should you? It
is your data! But you must have the proper ownership
credentials which BlackDog provides. Some vendors would say it is all there - you
just need to copy one record at a time. This "solution" will
take you about a thousand years to get it all. The other option some
vendors give - after you grovel a bit and have been beat up by their
'Damage Control Team' - is an outdated CD that can only be read by
a technician possessing a 'Rosetta Stone'. Not so with
BlackDog. We download to an MS Access format which is equivalent to the
American dollar as the international standard. You can either read it in MS Access or from there MS Access can export it into almost any
Export to Excel - Another good option
that converts any Gopher query into an Excel spreadsheet - a
format that non-technical recruiters are familiar with.
Export to MS ACCESS table - Our last unsticking
tool is a bit more powerful than the Excel export but requires
a little more technical skill. This is however still in the realm
of being user friendly for non-geeks.
