Staffing software provider celebrates 40th anniversary!

CHICAGO, Illinois– Automated Business Designs (ABD), developers of Ultra-Staff EDGE staffing software, is celebrating the company’s 40th anniversary. Founded in 1982, ABD is one of the oldest vendors in the industry but continues to introduce the latest innovative staffing technology solutions. ABD has stayed at the forefront of innovation by delivering a fully scalable software solution that meets the fast-paced in-demand needs of the industry.

ABD kicked off its 40th anniversary celebration on August 25th and 26th with a virtual client anniversary party that featured new product unveilings, inspirational speakers, trivia competitions, and giveaways. The company unveiled two brand new products, including a completely redesigned OnBoarding Application.  The new application is designed with technology to maximize your application completion, develop a better candidate experience, and give staffing companies a competitive edge. Additionally, the OnBoarding program is highly configurable by user within the new OnBoarding Admin Center.

In addition to the new OnBoarding Application, a new Mobile App is being released, Ultra-Staff EDGE JOBS, that will enrich the candidate experience and enhance communication between candidates and staffing companies. Candidates will have access to key information and will be able to accomplish tasks right from the palm of their hand, including entering availability, entering time, searching for jobs, messaging the recruiter, viewing important employee documentation, and more.

“We were ecstatic to share these new product unveilings during our client anniversary party,” said Terri Roeslmeier, President and CEO at Automated Business Designs. “Right now, staffing is all about the candidate experience. If staffing companies can offer a quick and intuitive application, combined with an all-inclusive mobile app to keep candidates and working employees engaged, it will automatically give them that competitive edge that is needed in today’s staffing industry.”

Over the years, ABD’s contributions to the staffing industry have not gone unnoticed. ABD’s President and CEO, Terri Roeslmeier, earned the Shero Award presented by the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS). The Shero Award highlighted her outstanding contributions to the staffing industry through involvement with local professional groups. This year Roeslmeier also received the 2022 Illinois Search and Staffing Association (ISSA) Member Appreciation Award for her years of dedicated service and leadership. Terri has served on the ISSA Board of Directors since 2012 and has been involved in planning the Midwest Staffing Conference as Co-Chair.

In addition, ABD is a Women’s Business Enterprise Certified company. The WBENC certification is one of the most prestigious and widely recognized certifications for women-owned businesses. ABD has also been honored as one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®, for the last seven consecutive years and has been named a National Best and Brightest Company to Work For®, for the last six years.

Ultra-Staff EDGE has also won many awards.  Most recently in Summer 2022, the Ultra-Staff EDGE Scheduling Module won a Gold Stevie® Award for Employee Scheduling Solution. Ultra-Staff EDGE has also been recognized on G2, a leading software review site, in their latest software report with the Highest User Adoption Badge in the categories of Staffing, Applicant Tracking System, Candidate Relationship Management, and OnBoarding.

Thousands of users rely on ABD’s all-in-one solution, Ultra-Staff EDGE, for their front and back office, web portals, onboarding, and healthcare staffing software needs. The Ultra-Staff EDGE suite allows staffing companies to streamline each aspect of their business to save time and money, increase efficiencies, and see key insights into their business. Through ABD’s advanced reporting and BI data analytic tools, key KPI’s can even be tracked through visualizations and interactive dashboards.

“Working closely with ABD, our applicant tracking system since September of 2017, LLoyd has come a long way in gaining insights and tracking our KPIs along with the visualizations Tableau allows me to create,” said Billy Veraszto, Vice President of Technology at Lloyd Staffing. “We have multiple dashboards from Fills and Placements, Interviews and TOP 10 clients among others all rotating on two large displays in our Bullpen area. The way ABD integrates with Tableau is wonderful. If it’s in Ultra-Staff EDGE, I can report on it!”

Features in the Ultra-Staff EDGE suite are always advancing and new ones are being developed. ABD sustains a large budget for research and development to stay ahead of industry trends and complement the ever-changing industry.  This too is what has helped ABD stay successful in the industry for the last 40 years.

“Having worked with ABD since 2008 across two companies, IMN Enterprises is grateful for ABD’s transparency in its efforts to make changes and improvements for our database,” said Tammy Bills, Chief Financial Officer at Icon Medical Staffing. “ABD has evolved with the intricate changes within the industry over the last 40 years.”
