Trimming Operating Expenses with the PRS
Here are some ways the PRS can help you cut down on unnecessary spending:
Use Texting to curb Mobile voice calls
Telephony, especially mobile voice calls, is one of the largest ongoing costs of running a recruitment company — Text messages cost less, save time and are more discreet than voice calls. A single click of the mouse next to the mobile phone number is all it takes to send a Text from your computer keyboard (you can even do bulk Text mail drops). An added bonus is that all Text messages sent from the PRS are recorded in PRS notes and in the mail archive.
Company branding custom PRS HTML email signatures
Did you know that PRS HTML mail signatures can be used as a sophisticated mail branding tool? Here’s an example mail message from the PRS demonstration software which includes a Web page menu in the header and a personalized signature in the footer:
Use Skype to slash international toll calls
Everyone knows you can talk to other PCs using Skype, but not everyone is aware that you can call land-lines anywhere in the world using Skype and that the calling charges are much less than using a conventional phone. Once you have a working Skype account you can Skype from the PRS by clicking the Goto button next to a PRS phone number field.
Save on postage: Use the PRS to do Microsoft Word Email drops
