Sprint Tour Section One

1. Introduction

Sprint is an extremely simple, yet powerful tool that makes the purchasing and management of temporary staff quicker and easier for both client line managers and agency recruitment consultants.

There is a straightforward workflow - An order is placed for temporary staff, with an approval process if required. Temporaries are assigned to approved orders. The temporaries now complete their weekly timesheets and submit them for approval to their line managers. The timesheets are approved or returned for correction and the timesheet details are downloaded, ready for your payroll process.

Sprint can be integrated into an agency's front and back office systems, so that at each stage of the workflow - Order creation and approval > Temporary Staff assignment > Timesheet completion and approval - the relevant information can be easily transferred, ensuring accuracy and removing the need for any double keying of data.

Sprint makes all the order, assignment and timesheet data easily available on-line and has a wide range of management reports to help clients and consultants manage their day-to-day business.

2. Creating an Order

Orders for temporary staff can be added directly onto Sprint by the client contacts or by the agency consultants.

Orders can have multiple levels of approval and provide both the client and the consultant with an estimated spend value.

There is a straight forward order form that captures the essential information required to supply the right staff. The form can be completed in one go, or part completed and saved for later.

3. Order Searching and Assigning

Once an order has been completed on Sprint, it is easily retrievable from the main menu. The full order information is available to both the client contacts and the consultants.

The full order details can be downloaded from Sprint directly into an agency's front-office application. The consultant can now either assign temporary staff using his or her front-office application and upload the assignment information to Sprint, or assign the temporary staff using Sprint itself.
