Bristow Holland, Permanent and Contractor recruiters specialising in Infrastructure, Software Development and Projects has selected Bond International Software, the global provider of staffing and recruitment software, to provide their new CRM via high-speed Software as a Service. Bond Adapt OnDemand succeeds Bristow Holland’s previous system, which was built purely for candidate sourcing, to become their hub of all recruitment activity and drive future growth.
Bristow Holland have been delivering specialist IT recruitment services to clients in Ipswich, Colchester, Burt St. Edmunds and beyond since the agency was started by Andy Bristow and Paul Vingerhoets in 2013. Bristow and Vingerhoets both brought over fifteen years of IT recruitment experience to their venture and soon found clients and candidates alike valued their sector knowledge and market reach, leading to consistent placement success and an expanding team of consultants. Soon outgrowing their existing system, the agency undertook a market review and Bond Adapt was an early frontrunner because Bristow and Vingerhoets had previously used earlier versions of the software.
Using the Bond Adapt CRM solution, Bristow Holland will bring new efficiencies to all aspects of their recruitment cycle and communications (including fast CV parsing from incoming emails via the Adapt Outlook Add-in). The agency will use the Bond Adapt/LinkedIn integration to easily view and action LinkedIn member profile information without leaving Bond Adapt and export jobs directly to LinkedIn. And the advanced KPI reporting tools within Adapt will deliver meaningful management information, enabling Bristow Holland to drive further efficiencies for consistent business growth.
Andy Bristow, Director, Bristow Holland, comments, “We required a system which would strengthen and enhance the tested and true recruitment processes we have developed since our inception. We immediately thought of Bond Adapt, however it made sense to compare the latest version with the other recruitment software packages on the market, to make absolutely sure it was still the most intuitive and would fully support our growth plans. We were pleased to find this was the case – Adapt is definitely the leading system in the breadth of features and scalability it offers, and Bond’s cloud service is fast and robust. We are confident Bond Adapt OnDemand will help us achieve our business goals.”
Toby Conibear, European Business Development Director, Bond International Software, comments, “Bristow Holland have built an enviable reputation for immediately delivering highly-skilled contractors and, in these times of skills-shortages, this is an increasingly challenging task. At Bond, we believe CRM systems should support agencies’ existing processes, not dictate new ones, and effectively become the hub of all recruitment activity. With the experience and tenacity Bristow Holland bring to their marketplace now underpinned by Bond Adapt OnDemand, we look forward to seeing the agency deliver even higher levels of service and quickly exceed their growth plans.”
