Our client had been an accountant for the last 30 years when he approached us to develop an automation of their staffing solutions. The client wanted us to build a one of a kind portal listing accountants in the United States where companies could hire them on a contractual basis. The portal is currently only available in 7 states. The platform would automate a system of background checks, payroll processing, candidate registration, live and recorded interviews, client registration, verification processes, and others.
We needed to research how the staffing process in the U.S. is done along with what was needed to implement the background check mechanisms, finding and integrating an apt payroll and and sales tax calculation module, and define an overtime calculation module.
Discovery and Functionality
This would be an evolving project with understanding the concept and functionality in the discovery phase. Maintaining stability of the website needed to happen on a weekly basis.
Selecting API’s and defining rules
The website needed custom rules defined to setup online live interviews. API’s needed to be selected to fix bid to resource allocations. Too many integrated API’s might impact the speed and performance of the site.
Solution and Execution:
Dedicated Resources Allocated
A dedicated team was set up to provide timely reporting by an account manager, project manager, senior designer, HTML developer, senior developer, and a testing analyst. An agile development process was used with an intense discovery phase.
The website was designed with a custom online job portal using the MVC framework, an automated was added for background checks, payroll processing, and others, a resume parser tool was integrated on the website for the candidates to auto fill the registration form for easy registrations.
Scalability, Compatibility, and UI
We focused the design on the user interface, making the site SEO friendly, and keeping in mind scalability and the addition of future modules. Third party integration of candidate information such as skills tests, LinkedIn profiles, e-signatures, and others. Cross browser testing was done and mobile platform compatibility. Ongoing maintenance is provided.
- The client is happy with the execution of the idea and looks forward to expanding the project.
- Traffic has increased with more than 2000 candidates with more than 1500 listed with complete information with jobs being awarded.
