What in the world is Services-enabled Software (SeS) in recruitment?

At Scout Talent, we deliver Service-enabled Software designed for recruitment. All that technical jargon can be difficult to understand! We’ve explained it here.

What is Services-enabled Software?

At Scout Talent, we provide Services-enabled Software (SeS). This means that the “services” we provide to supplement the software we provide is central to the product.

Service-enabled Software is quite different to Software as a Service (SaaS). Here’s how.

What’s the difference between SeS, the other SeS and SaaS?

With Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) the core business is writing and delivering software, which they provide to other organisations to run their business, whatever it may be. In a nutshell, this means that a SaaS provider’s main goal is selling software that their customers use independently of the company. Think about Microsoft Office Suite and how you have the ability to purchase the software to use yourself with no other service or support with it aside from some troubleshooting, reporting and updates.

With companies who provide Software-enabled Services, the software is not the business – the software is an essential, mission-critical aspect of the service the company provides.

Services-enabled Sofware is fundamentally different to both Software as a Service (SaaS) and Software-enabled Services (the other SeS). (It sounds like a lot of jargon and acronyms, but stick with us!) 

For Scout Talent, as a Service-enabled Software provider, our service is an ‘essential, mission-critical aspect’ of the software we provide. In other words, the services we provide as a part Scout Talent product suite strengthens and supports the recruitment software we provide.

We deliver a suite of recruitment technology products and leverage this technology to provide your team with the support and training you need; we give users access to an Account Manager to guide you through the best way to use your products, a support centre, and recruitment services (from advertising, shortlisting and selection, to employer branding) when you need an extra set of hands to fill in the gap. 

So, instead of simply buying a product suite for recruitment, you’re partnering with a team of experienced talent acquisition specialists, not just a software provider.

You have the freedom and flexibility to access recruitment services and expert support to enhance your use of our software and tailor it to your organisation’s unique needs. 

How will Services-enabled Software help you suceed?

We have a wide range of recruitment products and services that can provide an end-to-end solution for your organisation. From the complete package with an RPO service to smaller, more focused services such as recruitment advertising and talent engagement; Scout Talent can support your organisation and your existing HR teams to enhance their recruitment.

For example, our expert recruitment advertising team can write the copy for your job advertisements and analyse the performance of your advertising campaign, while you handle the candidate management process using our Candidate Management System (CMS), Scout Talent: Recruit.
