Client

Elinext is an international custom software development company. We make software for our customers, and sometimes our products are quite handy for internal use. This is one of about twenty such software pieces. Just like many other solutions we develop for our ecosystem, this one simplifies the everyday life of employees.

The core of the software could used to speed up the development of a related custom product for our clients.

Project Description

The old system was developed 15 years ago. We used the system for selected candidates, but the technologies it was made on became pretty outdated. There was a need for the modernization of the tool that would include new features that will take into account new features.

Based on the experience we got from our recruiters and resource managers, we figured out what had to be realized in our new application, and started to work on it.

The wanted result was a new applicant tracking system that optimizes the recruitment process by providing clear visibility into the hiring pipeline, facilitating efficient management of candidates and vacancies, and ultimately decreasing the time spent on the hiring process.

Challenges

As the core goal of the system was streamlining the process of hiring, two modules had to be designed: one for managing candidates, and the other for managing vacancies. There is also an admin module to configure certain functions.

For the candidate module, the following features had to be executed:

  • parsing data from the LinkedIn profile with a single press of a button
  • candidate profile management by the profile management and configuration
  • opportunity to leave public and private comments of any size about the candidates
  • subscribe to receive new comments
  • candidate status pipeline for each vacancy for each vacancy
  • CV file upload/download function
  • logs of candidates' changes

For management of vacancies: changes to its description, the list of all candidates, and an opportunity to assign those vacancies to the projects had to be made.

Process

Our team of six people worked on the first version of an app for six months. It included planning, designing, developing, and releasing the first version. After that, we are expected to work on the next versions of the web app: in the next months, we will gather the feedback, choose adjustments that have to be made and fix the bugs upon finding out about them.

Each module in the Elinext CV Manager is designed to integrate seamlessly with the others, providing a comprehensive and efficient toolset to streamline all aspects of the recruitment process. This modular design also allows for easy customization and scalability to fit the unique needs of any organization.

Results

As a result of the development of CV Manager, which is essentially a well-realized Applicant Tracker System, we streamlined our hiring process which helps a lot in the moments of active hiring.

While the initial release has already replaced the previous system, it represents just the beginning of our vision for CV Manager. Currently, we are actively using the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to fine-tune the company’s approach based on real-world feedback. This iterative process involves continuous enhancements and bug fixes to ensure that CV Manager not only meets but exceeds the evolving needs of our users.
