Berry Recruitment Group, a fast-growing, multi-division recruitment company, has selected specialist recruitment & staffing software Bond Adapt from Bond International Software to manage the placement of candidates more effectively and profitably. Bond Adapt was awarded the six-figure contract following a four-way selection process.
BRG was in need of a system that would provide improved visibility of the entire candidate placement process – from initial client brief, candidate matching and interview to placement. Bond Adapt was selected because of its functionality and the ease of integration with third-party software. With implementation due to be completed in Q3 2015, BRG expects to benefit significantly from improved productivity and service levels as well as reduced time spent on administrative tasks.
BRG will host Bond Adapt On Premise giving it additional flexibility and full product customisation. Other functionalities under the agreement include Web Recruit, Bond Adapt’s fully interactive web portal that can be accessed by clients, recruiters and candidates faster and more efficiently; and an integrated two-way finance system that enables the fast and easy administration of payroll and billing, worker details, bank details, timesheets, holiday accrual and more.
Jon Butler, IT Manager at BRG, comments: “Our primary focus is on temporary candidate placement within selected industry sectors and timing is therefore of the essence. Bond Adapt will enable each of the Group’s divisions to work smarter and keep our competitive advantage. It offers us everything we were looking for: flexibility, functionality, ease of use and its scalability will aid the Group’s rapid expansion policy.”
Toby Conibear, European Business Development Director at Bond International Software, adds: “We are very happy to have been selected by Berry Recruitment Group. Temporary staffing is a highly competitive area where the level of service provided to clients and candidates is of major importance. We look forward to helping the company manage candidate placements more easily so that their recruiters can focus on providing the ‘human touch’ that will deliver profitable long-term relationships.”
