We have decimated our development costs "The outsourcing of our job board platform to MatchWork is a success. With the access to the CMS system and a close relationship with MatchWork we retain the same agility as when we developed the job board solution ourselves while, at the same time we have been able to reduce our development organisation with a head count of 20 people counting product managers, developers and testers – not to forget our savings in servers, hosting and software licenses." Carsten Rysgaard, CEO, Kandidathuset A/S (OFiR).
With the Matchwork job board software you can manage your financial development, technology and personnel risks to a future proof solution delivered over the cloud with 100 percent cost predictability. Keeping you ahead of the game is a critical success factor for MatchWork. So as our customer you will never have to consider issues such as software development and maintenance, software licenses, hardware, network, security or reliability.
All the Capital Expenditure that you will need is a fee to cover the cost of provisioning your site on the platform, and after that all remaining costs will be a monthly license paid to MatchWork for the use of the platform and the running maintenance and hosting. In this way you can budget your job board expenses directly against the license agreement with MatchWork – and there will be no surprises.
A range of upsells generate additional revenue "The latest incarnation of our clickin2jobs site was launched in March 2010 and is based on Matchwork’s new recruitment platform. This brings the CV matching service and jobs listings together into one seamless platform for our users together with improved search facilities. Commercially a range of new up-sells were introduced and these, together with the previously existing up-sells such as CV Match and hot-jobs, means we are generating an average of 11% additional for online for each print advertisement sold." Stuart Cooke, Group Digital Development Director, CN Group
On our new platform MatchWork has combined search capability with business knowledge and created services that allow you to generate revenues that surpass those of your competitors. MatchWork’s unique and recognised CV-Match product has for many years been, and continues to be, a major revenue earner for our customers. Based on a unique and proven algorithm that has been continuously refined over many years, the CV-match continues to allow our customers to up-sell list ads to match ads at a premium that is sometime a multiple of the list ad price.
In addition to CV-matching, MatchWork’s job board solution offers a variety of ad enhancements that can be applied separately or in combinations for selected periods of time while the ad is online. To facilitate and increase enhancement sales MatchWork’s platform features powerful product package functionality where the job board provider can create bundled offerings such as 30 days Match ad listing including Featured ad enhancement the first 10 days, etc.
