Professional Employer Organizations, or PEOs, exist to make life easier for their clients. Why worry about the hassle, regulations, and details associated with HR? Focus on running your business!

As a PEO, you should also have every opportunity to streamline operations, run more efficiently, and maximize revenue. One of the most powerful tools to help you do just that is an ATS. Not just any ATS, but the right one.

The right ATS can help your PEO get more done.

Here are just a few reasons why an ATS makes sense for PEOs:

It makes the impossible, possible.

Unless your team is comprised of superheroes, your job postings are receiving hundreds to thousands of resumes. It’s safe to say that it’s pretty close to impossible to manually review them all.

The right ATS can scan resumes immediately to determine whether candidates are an ideal match for your positions, based on criteria you designate in advance. You control every detail and specify exactly what you need. Then, you let your ATS get to work for you.

In fact, BrightMove was designed to deftly handle thousands of resumes without breaking a sweat. With the capabilities to handle all of your reqs with ease, it makes life simpler, saves you potentially hundreds of hours, and makes the impossible, possible.

It provides you with critical data.

Your clients are counting on you to make strategic decisions that will help them reach their goals. You need reliable to make those decisions and recommendations for your clients. With BrightMove, your dashboard is customizable to highlight the precise metrics that are important to you. Highlight key data for multiple clients, or dig deeper into one or two clients. You’ll always be a click or two away from full metrics for all your clients, wherever you are in the BrightMove platform.  We designed it to be both simple, yet incredibly powerful and complex. We can provide you with precisely the data you need to be a hero for your clients.

It understands exactly what you need.

Okay, this one is specific to us here at BrightMove, but it’s a BIG one. The right ATS -- yes, that’s us -- understands PEOs and what you need to truly maximize ROI on your tech investment.

That’s why BrightMove was built to allow PEOs to seamlessly move between clients without needing multiple logins or clunky interfaces -- your team can move effortlessly through clients.

It works with many of your other technologies.

You’re taking on a lot for your clients. Payroll, benefits, background checks and so much more. Saving a few minutes here and there can make a massive difference in your stress levels, your productivity and your ability to deliver exceptional results for your clients.

Powerful ATS platforms like BrightMove (!) are built to easily integrate with your existing platforms. That means in many cases, you won’t have to add new contractors into multiple databases or enter the same data into a dozen places. Right now, BrightMove integrates with literally hundreds of additional platforms.

But, and this is in many ways the best part, if we do not already integrate with one of your existing tech solutions, in a majority of cases, we can often quickly work out an integration solution so that your PEO is able to fire on all cylinders with the BrightMove platform. Our size and agility allow us to deliver powerful solutions for our clients.

We can make your life easier.

Traditional PEOs are balancing the needs of their clients with a push for digital transformation and the onslaught of cloud-based providers. We understand what you’re going through!
