WORTHING, England, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Integration of Staffing Agency Software Bond Adapt and Daxtra Technologies Allows the Award-winning Engineering Recruitment Agency to Improve Their Recruitment System via Faster CV Processing and Searching Capabilities
Orion Group, the global leader in providing personnel to the engineering industry, has enhanced its recruitment system (http://www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=184) and achieved considerable annual savings thanks to its integration of staffing agency software (http://www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=1207) Bond Adapt (http://www.bondadapt.com) - the specialist portfolio of recruitment system software applications from Bond International Software - and Daxtra Technologies, the CV parsing and search solutions provider. The integration increases the speed with which candidates' CVs can be processed and seamlessly added to their recruitment agency software (http://www.bondadapt.com/index.asp?showussite=0), Bond Adapt, thus reducing the amount of necessary manual administration. This has resulted in annual global cost savings of over GBP1,000,000 for Orion Group, via a significant reduction in administrative overheads.
Orion Group is also using a second technology from Daxtra which allows consultants to search through CVs within Bond Adapt's system 60% faster than if they were to carry out a manual search at the same time as searching all their online candidate sources, such as job boards and social networks. Whereas previously, consultants may have been spending up to three hours a day searching for candidates on various job boards, they can now perform the search from Bond Adapt using Daxtra in less than a third of the time with this improved recruitment system.
Orion Group specialises in placing candidates in a range of contract and permanent positions, predominantly across the oil and gas sector. Based in the UK with nine offices nationwide, and a further 19 worldwide, the recruitment agency has over 280,000 candidates on their database, and places candidates all over the world.
Since purchasing staffing agency software, Bond Adapt, from Bond International Software nine years ago, Orion Group has enhanced their recruitment system, as proven by their winning of the prestigious Queens Award for Enterprise in the international trade category. In 2010 Orion Group was also placed 1st for engineering recruitment in the 'Recruitment International Magazine' poll.
Derek Warrander, IT Service Manager at Orion Group, explains, "The decision to integrate Bond's recruitment agency software with Daxtra has not only resulted in substantial cost savings across the business but has also saved hundreds of man-hours per week. Previously we had a substantial administrative team across our offices whose dedicated job it was to process CVs and enter them into the Bond Adapt recruitment system. With the integration of staffing agency software Bond Adapt and Daxtra however, the time previously taken to complete this task can now be put to better use elsewhere, allowing our recruitment consultants to focus their energy on core recruitment competencies, such as placing candidates. The integration of the recruitment agency software itself was flawless, and having this ease of use from the outset immediately confirmed to us that we had made the right choice with our selection of software provider."
Warrander continues, "As a global recruitment agency, we were hugely impressed by the fact that staffing agency software Bond Adapt gives us access to one centralised recruitment system worldwide. This allows our consultants, no matter where they are in the world, to access and search the same data from one central recruitment system. Naturally this is far quicker than if we were to have paper-based filing, therefore making the recruitment system overall far more efficient and timely. Bond is the leading provider of recruitment agency software and this has certainly been reflected not only in the excellent customer service that Bond provide us with, but also with the results that we have seen so far, which equate to over GBP1,000,000 annual global savings."
Sergei Makhmodov, Commercial Director at Daxtra Technologies, comments, "Some of our clients have reported savings of over 90% of the cost they had previously spent on CV processing and data entry after deploying Daxtra's Candidate Capture product. Orion Group has achieved dramatic cost savings through the integration of Daxtra's products with their Adapt recruitment system, and this is a clear testament to the success of our partnership. Bond International Software is a major player within the staffing agency software industry, with a considerable market share, and a number of top recruitment agencies on their books. Adapt was around about the first recruitment system that we integrated with, and seven years later, we are supporting hundreds of customers as a partnership."
Tim Richards, Managing Director of Bond International Software, concludes, "Orion Group have demonstrated through the integration of Bond Adapt with Daxtra just how flexible and effective Bond's recruitment agency software is. We are delighted that Orion Group has seen such substantial cost savings as a result of the integration. Rather than force reinvention of existing recruitment processes, the staffing agency software is designed to simplify the pre-existing day-to-day processes, which reduces the amount of time spent on unproductive administration, allowing employees to focus on core competencies, such as placing candidates in roles."
