A new web application for Human Resources professionals

As a HR professional, it is inevitable to receive and process large volumes of applications each day. During this global recession period, we have seen this is becoming an issue for many HR agents as each position can attract hundreds of applications and resumes.

Managing these information presents a problem itself, and many HR companies have already facing challenges due to lack of time and resources.

Here is a smart way to manage your candidates’ information; this is done so through a small application that integrates with your web contact forms and Google Docs – we call this product Mail2Google!

According to our research, majority of applicants send their applications through online, usually through contact forms with attachments. Agents then download each profile and process them manually, which is a time-costly procedure.

Using our newly developed Mail2Google application, we can at least save your time in managing these entries. You can simply adjust your web contact forms and have the fields clearly defined with specific information you wish to have from candidates.

The data entered by the applicants are then captured by Mail2Google automatically, all you have to do is to run reports and review candidates’ information accordingly. This is a useful system to gather applicants’ information cost-effectively and efficiently.

Moreover, you can use this program to manage multiple campaigns, for instance, processing different positions simultaneously, again, this can save significant time in data entry and management.

While we can not solve the problem for you in reviewing each resume and cover letters, the least we can assist you is to save significant precious time in data entry, so that you can focus your time in reviewing the resumes and make informed decision.

Once the reports are generated in Google Docs, you can easily convert them to Excel if you wish to, and use them for future purposes such as newsletters or send updates.

Mail2Google is especially for those time-poor HR professionals, or maybe you are starting up a new venture and have limited resources for data entry and management.

If you are interested to find out more about how Mail2Google can assist you in managing your business process, please visit our website for demonstration.

ResearchWhitepaper integrates with Uprise Apps Mail2Google Service for Leads Automation

ResearchWhitepaper (, a global portal with operations in Australia, Asia and US has adopted Uprise Apps Mail2Google Service for its website.

ResearchWhitepaper is a highly popular website with daily traffic exceeding 600 a day, and as high as 1,000 per day. The company receives up to 300 enquiries a day from a variety of users downloading their trial documents and reports.

“While we are glad the campaign has worked for us, we needed to hire 2 F/T employees just for data entry, this is costing us $200 a week” commented Amy Hsu, Marketing Director of ResearchWhitepaper

“While leads generations is great, it is no guarantee we can make convert them into sales, so, we have been very cautious on terms of marketing budget. The response rate had exceeded our expectation, and we were scared to launch more campaigns because we spent all our time on data entry” She continued.

“We have been seeking for technology solutions to resolve this simple-data entry process, and ultimately, integrating them into our CRM system.

We looked around and discussed with Andrew Kandzuba, CEO of Uprise Apps, originally using their “Office In Cloud” Microsoft Office to Google Integration tool to back the files. Soon we found Google Docs can be used as a great record keeping tool, hence implemented Mail2Google as well”.

Significant Improvements in Efficiency

Here are some facts:

  • Since the implementation, the data entry hours has reduced from 20 hours a week to 2 hours a week, mainly for reporting

  • Able to run 3 projects simultaneously without incurring additional cost, ResearchWhitepaper now generates 1,000 leads per week without adding new costs

  • Able to run master reports, and always updated, there is no need to wait for the staff to finish their data entry tasks

  • Able to conduct campaigns in multiple markets as Mail2Goole also supports different languages

  • Saving of at least $1,000 a month just in data entry costs

  • Able to change the web contact forms and start a new program with Mail2Google easily, flexible solution

ResearchWhitepaper now only retains 1 data entry staff since implemented Mail2Google service. By using our service, it can now allocate more resources to follow up on the leads generated and other sales driven and product developments activities.

ResearchWhitepaper is now in discussion with Uprise Apps in integrating the service with its Salesforce CRM systems as a extension to existing service.
