HIRABL helps Bond clients find ‘backdoor hires’


Bond and HIRABL (formerly Fee Catcher) today announced a landmark integration that allows staffing agencies to quickly increase revenue through state-of-the-art Big Data analytics that monitor candidate, hiring manager, and alumni recruiter movements in real-time.

Bond clients across Europe are already realizing significant ROI with HIRABL: ““HIRABL is a real ‘eye opener’. We run a tight ship in SRG. HIRABL managed to identify considerable lost revenue that we hadn’t picked up in our standard procedures,” said Paul Davis, Commercial Manager at SRG (Impellam).

With HIRABL, Bond clients can now identify potential “backdoor hires” (when a client hires one of your candidates without your knowledge), and grow sales revenue with these new tools:

  1. Candidate Tracker: HIRABL alerts when you candidates you previously placed change jobs so that you can “backfill” the position. Your recruiters can also follow these candidates into other firms who are hiring candidates that you’re already expert in placing.
  2. Hiring Manager Tracker: HIRABL also alerts you when a hiring manager you work with changes employers so that you can preserve your existing job orders at their former employer, and open a new book of business at their new employer.

“One in 300 candidate submissions results in a backdoor hire,” said Nick Ellis, CEO of HIRABL. “Over $1 billion is lost to backdoor hires every year, and billions more are missed because recruiters don’t know what’s happening with these key relationships. By partnering with Bond, we’re eliminating these blind spots and turning data into dollars for staffing firms.”

Commenting on the partnership Tim Richards, Managing Director, Bond International Software said, “For us, it is important that our clients are able to analyse all aspects of their business. With our integration to HIRABL they will be able to easily identify potential missed fees and work proactively to recover them. We are pleased to be partnering with HIRABL and share the benefits of their advanced analytics.”
