LONDON, January 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Recruitment agency AshwellForbes Enjoys Longstanding Relationship with Recruitment System Provider, Bond International Software, as Entire Recruitment Process and CRM System is Built on Staffing Agency Software, Bond Adapt -
AshwellForbes, a specialist recruitment agency placing sales, marketing, recruitment and HR professionals throughout Wiltshire and Berkshire, has enjoyed first-class support and a strong professional relationship with recruitment system (http://www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=184) provider Bond International Software, the stock market-listed global provider of recruitment agency software (http://www.bondadapt.com/index.asp?showussite=0) & human capital management software & services, since deploying staffing agency software (http://www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=1207) Bond Adapt http://www.bondadapt.com as a hosted solution in January 2007.
Bond Adapt provides AshwellForbes' entire recruitment process infrastructure as the software - hosted by Bond and accessed online by the agency - processes and stores all client, candidate and vacancy details, tracks all candidates' progress through its CRM function, including post-placement management, and through the ease of use and flexibility of the recruitment system, reduces the administrative burden associated with filling vacancies.
Before implementing Bond Adapt in 2007, the company was running the entire recruitment process manually, using simple spreadsheets to store candidates' details - a hugely time-consuming process.
Julian Forbes, Director at AshwellForbes, comments, "As we grew as a business, accumulating more and more clients and candidates, it became essential that their details were stored safely and accurately and that their path through the placement process could be tracked in real-time. Furthermore, as we are accredited by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), we are obliged to adhere to certain guidelines within our industry, one of which makes accurate data storage and tracking of candidate progress a prerequisite of membership. However, using spreadsheets and manual administrative processes made this difficult to both achieve and evidence, and so we needed to make our recruitment system infrastructure more sophisticated."
Forbes continues, "We are a comparatively small agency, making full IT investment, including infrastructure hardware such as high-capacity servers, somewhat excessive. The ability to access the full functionality of Bond Adapt recruitment agency software through the internet, without having to invest in IT hardware has made this a particularly attractive option - a cost-effective, yet highly efficient solution for a business such as ours."
Forbes concludes "With 2,500 candidates and an ever increasing number of candidates currently on our database, we appreciate that we are not a big company. This however, has never affected the level of service we receive from Bond. The recruitment system itself is ideally suited for a business such as ours - in fact Bond Adapt staffing agency software provides the backbone of our infrastructure - and the way in which our service and support queries have been handled has been admirable."
