Don't ask me why, but I always get a kick from meeting or talking with people from the land down under. A couple months ago, I got an email from some Australian who said I had to see his software product. Of course, understand that I get about 25-30 of these requests every month. His product, called ResumePipe, claimed to automatically extract and process all files either attached or contained in the message area of Microsoft Outlook. For recruiters using Outlook, this promised to be an incredible g-dsend.
So after several tests I became a believer. This wonderfully simple application not only processes every attachment and message, but can also recognize those files that are resumes and process them in any set of predefined formats. It can also filter and automatically strip out any extraneous header or footer data and give you that perfect scannable resume. ResumePipe is but a small player in the arsenal of killer apps that this Aussie has devised for us recruiters. http://www.datamystic.com
If you just need to save, detach or delete attachments from your emails, why not try DetachPipe?
