Bullhorn signs Venquis - Business Transformation Recruitment


March 2011, London – Bullhorn®, the global leader in on-demand recruitment software, today announced that London-based Venquis is the latest recruitment agency to implement Bullhorn’s applicant tracking and customer relationship management (CRM) platform. The business transformation recruiter chose the recruitment software specialist specifically to support an ambitious and dynamic programme of expansion, which includes a target of £3million profit by 2016. Bullhorn’s web-based flexibility means new offices and users can be set up easily and quickly.

Launched on 01 February 2011, Venquis specialises in placing expert business transformation professionals with clients across the financial services and commerce sectors, including major financial institutions. Employees at the new agency’s Trafalgar Square office are running their business from within the platform, following the contract signing in January 2011.

Steve Garner, Managing Director at Venquis, comments: "We went through a comprehensive recruitment software tendering process prior to launching the company, as we knew how important the right platform would be to Venquis’s future growth. Bullhorn’s platform will allow us to capitalise on new market opportunities quickly, without the headaches that normally come with opening new offices such as setting up expensive new IT systems. It’s easily the most comprehensive, joined-up solution out there, and it rapidly became apparent that while other providers could offer parts of it, only Bullhorn offers the whole package.”

Peter Linas, Bullhorn’s UK Managing Director, adds: “The Bullhorn platform is a perfect fit for new agencies like Venquis. Charged on a per-user, per-month basis, new accounts can be added at the click of a button, meaning less time is spent on admin and more on growing the business. The fact that it’s hosted in the cloud means that recruiters have the flexibility to work from anywhere with an internet connection, affording instant access to all their emails, client and candidate records.”

Bullhorn launched in the UK in June 2009, and now has over 1,000 users. With more and more companies turning to cloud-based Software-as-a-Service solutions as a means of reducing IT spend and boosting productivity, Bullhorn is increasingly becoming the natural choice for UK recruiters.
