2. Customise your database to your requirements

Custom Fields means that you can make your software work the way you want it to. There’s no need to miss out details that could help you in the future when it comes to placing your candidates.

3. The choice is yours

You’re not limited to the information that you can store. It’s completely up to you about the type of data you wish to hold.
