Specialist professional recruiter Investigo, today announced its signing with cloud-based recruitment software leader, Bullhorn. The recruiter is implementing Bullhorn throughout its network of offices in London, Guildford, Reading, St Albans and Milton Keynes in support of aggressive future expansion plans.
Investigo felt the need to replace its incumbent system having achieved significant growth since the company’s inception in 2003 (with turnover anticipated to be in excess of £40m this year). After shortlisting four recommended recruitment software suppliers, the recruiter saw Bullhorn’s scalable, cloud based model as the best placed to sustain its rapid growth rate.
Investigo CEO, Gary Watson, comments on the choice: “I first heard about Bullhorn 18 months ago from two ex-colleagues, both of whom had implemented it in their own businesses. We then entered into a due diligence tendering process in which we considered a number of alternatives. We were very impressed with the continuous improving nature of Bullhorn’s Software-as-a-Service solution, with refinements and upgrades automatically integrated on a quarterly basis without the need for us to install updates.
“We also took a number of references from other industry specialists and kept on hearing good things about Bullhorn. These, combined with the platform’s cloud-based, user-friendly nature, made it the natural choice.”
Bullhorn’s UK MD, Peter Linas, notes: “Investigo’s incredible success story needed to be matched with a recruitment platform that can act as a solid foundation for future market dominance. Bullhorn’s secure SaaS architecture means it can grow with Investigo, ensuring their recruiters are using the latest technologies to advance their position in the sector, saving man hours and making more placements than ever before.”
Watson concluded: “Having made the decision to go with Bullhorn in December we’ve set ourselves the target of a successful roll-out throughout our offices by the end of June 2011.”
