Global Executive Search Specialists Pelham Select Invest in AdaptUX

Pelham Select LogoPelham Select, leading International search and selection firm specialising in financial services, have selected Bond International Software, the global provider of staffing and recruitment software, to provide AdaptUX OnDemand recruitment-specific CRM via high-speed cloud service.

Based in central London with a second office in Hong Kong, Pelham Select provide recruitment and search services to a range of clients throughout Europe, Asia and the United States of America. Guy Roberts and John Farmer founded Pelham Select with a clear vision to create a firm offering search quality services at the mid-to-senior end of the Financial Services market. Pelham Select‘s consultants are each dedicated to specific niches to remain experts within their field and, as a strong counterpoint, their in-house team of researchers deliver the highest levels of market mapping and competitor analysis. An industry benchmark for quality and delivery, Pelham Select are the recruiter of choice for the world’s elite investment banks, private banks and investment firms; consistently ranking among the top global boutique agencies.

Looking for an experienced, credible partner provider, Pelham Select opened discussions with the UK’s foremost recruitment software providers and began reviewing their latest technology. Keen to upgrade from their existing executive search software, the agency focused their efforts on finding the right cloud-based recruitment CRM to manage both executive search and contract workflows for their newly-opened contract desk.

Following an intensive one month review process, Pelham Select chose AdaptUX due to the system’s ease of use, intuitive menus and dashboards, candidate searching functionality (especially ease of managing multiple search lists) and seamless Microsoft Outlook integration. Key features of the deployment include:

  • SaaS (Software as a Service) – Bond OnDemand enables Pelham Select’s users to log-in and use AdaptUX wherever they have internet access
  • Adapt Studio – enabling Pelham Select’s users to choose from in-built recruitment dashboards or design their own based upon their preferred working methods
  • Contract Workflows – comparing the Contract workflows provided by a number of recruitment software systems, Pelham Select favoured the efficient processes delivered by AdaptUX in this important area
  • Adapt Outlook Add-in – enabling Pelham Select’s users to access client and candidate records and run recruitment workflows in Adapt direct from emails received in Microsoft Outlook
  • Adapt InTouch mobile app – allowing Pelham Select’s consultants to access Adapt via their smartphones and effectively recruit on the move

Using the AdaptUX solution, Pelham Select will be able to gain competitive advantages when searching for and placing candidates within their Financial Services marketplace.

Pelham Select will be implementing AdaptUX in July 2016 and expects all of its consultants across the UK and Hong Kong to be using the solution soon thereafter.

John Farmer, Partner, Pelham Select, comments, “Looking to upgrade from our existing specialist executive search software to a system providing an effective solution for both search and contract placements, we concentrated our efforts on not only finding the right system, but also a partner provider with the experience and tenacity to support our business globally and in the long-term. We knew of Bond’s standing as a market-leading provider of recruitment software, however once we spent time consulting with their team and putting AdaptUX through its paces, we fully understood why they hold this position. AdaptUX delivers all the features you would expect from such a highly-regarded recruitment CRM, and more – and the look and feel of the system is second to none.”

Toby Conibear, European Business Development Director, Bond International Software, comments, “Pelham Select are cementing their position as the global executive search and contract solutions provider of choice within their Financial Services marketplace and we are delighted they have chosen AdaptUX. Approaching their brief, intensive software review process with a clear set of business requirements for our technology to meet, it was exciting to work with the Pelham Select team and we look forward to implementing their AdaptUX system – and to many years of dynamic partnership to come.”
