Oakwell Hampton, new start-up staffing solution specialists in the IT and Digital Marketing space have selected Bond International Software, the global provider of staffing and recruitment software, to provide Bond Adapt OnDemand recruitment-specific CRM via high-speed cloud service.
Founded in January 2016 by experienced IT and Marketing recruiters Ben Higgs and Indi Pahl, Oakwell Hampton are based in central London and operate throughout the UK. Born of a necessity to fill the knowledge gaps in an over-crowded market, Oakwell Hampton deliver recruitment solutions across the full spectrum of IT and Digital Marketing; with expert consultants specialising in specific disciplines. Ben and Indi focus on their employee’s motivation and satisfaction at all times, providing the highest levels of training and engendering a positive, dynamic, results-driven culture to ensure clients’ requirements are met first time, every time. In a short time Oakwell Hampton have experienced phenomenal growth as a business and show no signs of slowing down.
Having previously used different recruitment software, Ben and Indi undertook a wide review of the market with a view to finding the right system to help launch their business and enable it to rapidly grow. Key criteria included tools for effective searching, KPI tracking, reporting and email marketing. As their review progressed, the Adapt lead generation and business development tools designed to maximise opportunities, coupled with the KPI tracking and management reporting tools to help inform new strategies, secured Bond’s position as a frontrunner. The following features led to their decision to select Adapt.
- Cloud/SaaS (Software as a Service) – Bond OnDemand enables Oakwell Hampton’s consultants to log-in and use Adapt wherever they have internet access
- Adapt Studio – enabling all Oakwell Hampton users to select from built-in recruitment dashboards or design their own based upon their preferred working methods
- Adapt Outlook Add-in – enabling Oakwell Hampton users to access client and candidate records and run recruitment workflows in Adapt from emails received in Microsoft Outlook
- Adapt InTouch mobile app – allowing Oakwell Hampton’s users to access Adapt via their smartphones and effectively recruit on the move

The searching tools provided by Bond Adapt will help us find more candidates with the right technical experience and the KPI and management reporting tools will work hand in hand with our positive environment for employee happiness, training and motivation. From driving individual consultant success to delivering meaningful management information, Bond Adapt is an ideal solution for recruitment business growth.”
