Dream of launching your own recruitment agency? ETZ’s new back-office software solution for startups can make it a reality


Are you tired of marching to the beat of someone else’s drum, but worry about the administrative cost of running your own recruitment agency? ETZ’s brand new back-office software package for start-ups could help you to make the leap of faith and start your own business.
We’ve spent the best part of two decades developing a market-leading back-office software solution, which enables enterprise recruitment companies to automate the day-to-day admin tasks that keep their business generating income.
Now, we’re taking that technology and offering it to start-up recruitment agencies at a fraction of the cost through our new product, Startup 20/20.

Take the time out of timesheets and the pain out of payments

Day-to-day tasks such as managing and approving candidate timesheets, invoicing clients, and overseeing payments are an essential part of running a recruitment agency. But they can take up a lot of your time and effort, which would be better spent building new business opportunities.
Startup 20/20 makes running your recruitment agency back-office much easier and more efficient, by automating the everyday processes that keep your business running. This will leave you free to focus on growing your client base.

Reduce back-office costs by up to 85%

The technology that Startup 20/20 uses has already been proven to reduce back-office costs by up to 85%, by speeding up the workflow from the moment someone submits their timesheet, to the moment they are paid.
For example, inputting a timesheet and creating an invoice takes less than 60 seconds with our software, while our rules-based approval system means that any timesheet or expense errors will be flagged up straight away – and must be corrected before the candidate can submit their entry.

Get paid quicker – and get your staff paid quicker, too

Even more importantly for a new business, Startup 20/20 promotes quick cash flow, by making it easy for clients to pay both you and your workforce.
Invoices are automatically sent to clients with the relevant timesheets attached, and our software can be easily integrated with your accounting and payroll programmes, to synchronise paperwork and payment capabilities.
And if you want to check in on the status of your invoice payments at any point in time, Startup 20/20 has an online reporting dashboard for complete business confidence.

Enterprise-standard technology with a start-up agency price tag

We understand how daunting the prospect of launching your own recruitment agency can be, which is why we’ve designed Startup 20/20 around the needs of small businesses.
With packages available from just £20 per month, our tech is competitively priced for new companies looking to get your foot on the career ladder. And it’s the first of many big plans we have for the recruitment agency startup market, so keep an eye on the ETZ website for future updates.
The Startup 20/20 software is cloud-based, so you don’t need to install anything to get going. It’s securely hosted, so you know your clients’ sensitive data is being well looked after. And we provide full training and support services, to ensure that technical queries never hold you back.
