Peoplebank Signs Securely with Secured Signing

Peoplebank Signs Securely with Secured Signing

Melbourne, April 2nd, 2014

Peoplebank, Australia's largest IT and specialist recruiter, announces it has signed a contract to use Secured Signing's digital signing process to give it an edge in getting its contractors signed up and onto client projects. Peoplebank has begun rolling out the service and early adopters are finding savings of around an hour-and-a-half with each new contractor placement.

Peoplebank first began looking at the Secured Signing service as part of its ongoing review of back office processes. The company is keen to identify ways to make the contracts process easier for contractors, as well as keeping its footing in the fiercely competitive contractor recruitment market.

As part of this process, Peoplebank developed and implemented two new processes - eStarter and eContracts - that automate many of the processes attached to contract preparation - including pre-loading sensitive contact information (including Tax File Numbers) and managing the signing process. The processes are securely facilitated by Secured Signing

With Secured Signing, Peoplebank’s sales team are able to instantly upload the appropriate onboarding electronic package that includes workflow, due date for sign-off, and contractor’s particular job-related guidelines and policies. Furthermore, an extra level of security is added to the completion of the signing process with a text message code that is sent to the contractor’s mobile phone. Peoplebank’s contractors no longer need to travel to the company’s offices, or to print or scan forms. The whole fill-in and signing process is done securely and promptly from anywhere, at any time, by any device.

The level of automation - especially with the Tax File Number collection puts Peoplebank at the forefront of automation in contractor recruiting, with benefits including perfect accuracy, no matter how complex the contractor's payment arrangements.

The company now has all staff using the Secured Signing’s platform, with team members estimating that the process frees up one-and-a-half hours per contract, which Peoplebank's team can allocate to high value tasks that reflect their expertise, such as gathering data and feedback to ensure contractors are settling into their new roles and are delivering to customer expectation.

Peoplebank's CEO, Peter Acheson comments that the new platform is an example of technology's contribution to keeping recruiters competitive in the technology project recruitment sector.

"Technology is one of the most competitive job searching fields of any industry. New technology and practices are developed constantly and getting precisely the right mix of skills and experiences on board can make all the difference to the overall success of a project," said Acheson.

"The value that Peoplebank brings to clients is to shine better light on the likely fit between a candidate's skillset and the organisation's technical and cultural needs. So we're excited by opportunities to spend less time on the back-end and more time on high-value aspects of our work.

"Secured Signing is helping our recruiters do just that - and I'm looking forward to seeing how its extended use can help our business in the months ahead," Acheson concluded.
