How to Use the Top Echelon Browser Extension

The Top Echelon Browser Extension tool can be added to your Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox browser and is designed to streamline and automate manual data entry for the Big Biller recruiting software. The extension will allow you to import candidates directly from specific webpages right into Big Biller. It will parse the information on the web page, check to see if the record already exists in your database, and will give you the option to either create a new record or update an existing one. You can also add the contact to one or more Pipelines or Hotlists right from the extension to save even more time! 

Please note that this extension is only available through Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox web browsers. In addition, when using the Top Echelon Browser Extension tool, only import information into your database that you have permission to add.
