Pushing Data to ESS

Job Ready works in conjunction with ESS by having two way communication. Pushing Data to ESS, means that information entered in Job Ready will be uploaded to ESS. In reverse data entered to ESS will download to Job Ready and this occurs on a daily basis. 

Data which can be pushed to ESS is limited to information entered regarding Employers and Vacancies. Entering information regarding an employer or a placement in Job Ready then enabling the push functionality will ensure that this data will be in ESS the next day. 

Benefits of using this functionality are that entering data relating to employers and vacancies will only need to be done in Job Ready as using "Push to ESS Function" will ensure this data will be stored in ESS.
