Ultra-Staff EDGE Front Office Staffing & Recruiting Software

A full featured recruiting software experience.

Ultra-Staff EDGE Staffing & Recruiting Software offers a user experience that customizes business processes by role.  Because a salesperson uses a different process than a recruiter, and temp/contract jobs are filled differently than direct-hire, designing screens by workflow significantly increases productivity.  Data should effortlessly flow through the process and be accessed quickly when needed.  Couple a better workflow with a world-class support model from ABD, and the ability to handle it all from your phone thanks to our mobile staffing capabilities, and you have the best front office / CRM imaginable!

We have been a customer of ABD for over 16 years. Since that time we have grown well over 600% as a company. There is no question that our partnership with ABD, and the use of their staffing software has contributed immensely to our success. The team at ABD is responsive and forward thinking. Most importantly, they are people I enjoy working with. I would recommend ABD to anyone that is considering making their business better.

David Donald | President | PeopleShare

Active Staffing has been an ABD Ultra-Staff customer for more than 20 years. In that time, our annual revenue has grown from $10M to $65M and ABD has grown with us. Their all in one solution for front office, back office and CRM, combined with one-click integrations for eVerify, background checks and recruitment ads, create tremendous efficiency for our operation and peace of mind for our leaders. Over the years, three things have made ABD a valuable partner to the Active Staffing team. The owners, John and Terri, are always ahead of the curve on compliance and legislative changes, constantly updating their software to keep pace. The entire team is responsive and available, 24/7. And, they are always open to our suggestions for future updates. ABD Ultra-Staff is more than a vendor; they are truly part of our success.

Benny Elzweig | COO | Active Staffing

High Profile Staffing has partnered with ABD using Ultra-Staff since 2007. In February 2019 we upgraded to Ultra- Staff EDGE to take advantage of the cloud-based system that integrates with several of our other vendors and software platforms. It was a smooth transition to upgrade – literally overnight! Some of the features that we quickly learned we cannot live without are the Dashboard, Daily Planner, Customizable Screens, Job Activity Center, Tableau, Text-Em-All, and access to recorded webinars at the click of our mouse. The support staff at ABD has always been very responsive. They are just a phone call away to answer any questions, and assist with any training.

Excel Partners has been with ABD since 1996, and while we love the Ultra-Staff product, we are even more pleased by the service we get from them. I’ve never worked with a staffing software company that is as responsive and helpful as ABD. We call them with a great deal of confidence that our issues will be addressed quickly, accurately and thoroughly. We feel that Ultra-Staff has contributed significantly to our growth and overall success. ABD has been an excellent partner through the years. We would definitely go with them again, and we’re looking forward to many more years in partnership with ABD.
