Bond International Software's eEmpACT On Demand Debuts Staffing Industry's First SaaS Cloud Computing Front & Back Office Solution
eEmpACT On Demand, the first 100% web-based front and back office staffing software solution, is poised to improve staffing operations at a critical growth time for the industry. As the industry begins an upward trend, eEmpACT signs
15 new customers in the summer of 2010.
Minneapolis, MN (September 16, 2010) – Bond International Software announced today that Bond eEmpACT On Demand staffing software will debut and be available for sale at the American Staffing Association's (ASA) Staffing World Convention and Expo, October 12 -15 in Las Vegas, Nevada. With eEmpACT On Demand, staffing firms can access front office, payroll and billing/accounting functions from a Web-enabled computer, virtually anywhere.
Also being announced today is the news that in the last few months 15 firms have already selected eEmpACT. Bond International Software reports new installations with over 800 users with companies that include Advantage Staffing (a division of Advantage Resourcing), Damian, Impact Staffing and Continental.
This news comes as U.S. staffing companies are reporting strong growth in the number of temporary workers employed in the second quarter of this year, compared with the same period last year, according to survey data released by the ASA. Staffing sales in the second quarter of this year totaled $16.9 billion, according to ASA survey results—a 32.8% increase over the same period last year. This is the largest year-to-year percentage increase recorded since ASA began tracking industry sales on a quarterly basis in 1992.
