Rapid expansion, especially when international, often brings with it a certain level of fragmentation. We were keen to prevent this occurring by bringing in a system that was first of all flexible enough to accommodate and streamline our own individual workflows, but also sufficiently robust to be used as a single system in all countries. Finally, it of course had to be sufficiently scalable to allow us to continue our growth without fear of outgrowing our systems.
Having used Adapt in one of its earlier versions, I was keen to include AdaptUX in our review but also to highly scrutinise it alongside the best the market had to offer. We found a number of recruitment software systems to be over-complicated, but with AdaptUX we could always see where to click straight away. To quickly make our mark and grow as a business, we must consistently deliver immediately available temps with the right skills and with AdaptUX we are confident we’ll do so.
After a period of consultancy and evaluation, there were a number of key differentiators that made the final decision for us. Most important was the approach taken to customisation. Most software packages claimed to be adaptable, but where Bond Adapt Version 11 was superior was in the ability to configure any area of the software or workflow immediately and according to our precise business needs. Bond’s competitors on the other hand were able to configure in some respects immediately, but for other aspects of what we required, we would have had to wait until the core software was developed and the next version was put on general release – it felt more restrictive from a timing perspective but more importantly the ideas and innovations that we will want to implement would then be available to everyone – without Bond Adapt it seemed to us that there would be no competitive edge.
Oui Chef! Hospitaity Solutions has taken-off really quickly and we’re handling a high volume of ad-hoc shifts and temp placements on a daily basis, so our CRM software must be fast and efficient when it comes to placing the right people at the right time. It’s so easy to drag and drop a temp into a shift on the AdaptUX Temp Desk and the system instantly updates all the client, candidate and job booking information for you. AdaptUX has a great look and feel throughout and when we added the integrations with Outlook and Text Marketer, we knew it was right for us and would definitely help build our business.
Our primary focus is on temporary candidate placement within selected industry sectors and timing is therefore of the essence. Bond Adapt will enable each of the Group’s divisions to work smarter and keep our competitive advantage. It offers us everything we were looking for: flexibility, functionality, ease of use and its scalability will aid the Group’s rapid expansion policy.
Reviewing the recruitment software market may seem a challenging task, especially when you’re looking to upgrade from an existing system but, especially with providers such as Bond, the process is more straightforward than you might expect – and well worth the effort. By moving to AdaptUX we have acquired the software functionality we needed and, because the overall system is so streamlined and easy to use, we have also undoubtedly increased efficiency across our processes. We’re aiming for rapid growth and with AdaptUX we’re even more confident we’ll achieve it.
We required a system which would strengthen and enhance the tested and true recruitment processes we have developed since our inception. We immediately thought of Bond Adapt, however it made sense to compare the latest version with the other recruitment software packages on the market, to make absolutely sure it was still the most intuitive and would fully support our growth plans. We were pleased to find this was the case – Adapt is definitely the leading system in the breadth of features and scalability it offers, and Bond’s cloud service is fast and robust. We are confident Bond Adapt OnDemand will help us achieve our business goals.
In the year of our tenth anniversary, we’re proudly looking back over our achievements and confidently looking forward by setting ambitious goals to take our business, and the services we deliver to our clients and candidates, to the next level. Selecting the right cloud recruitment software to support our team was an important element of our plan and we meticulously compared the technology available. From active dashboards enabling our consultants to search, match and place even more effectively, to powerful KPI and management reporting tools helping us make the best strategic decisions, AdaptUX is a fully rounded-system for success.
When I took over the business in October 2006, the software package currently in use was simply not effective enough – its functionality and usability were poor such that crucial parts of the recruitment process, such as sending terms of business or CVs, were being missed. Implementing Adapt means a far more thorough system is in place – with everything stored in one simple location, access to data is far more efficient than before. The package can be used effectively to call clients and also to keep records of conversations between clients and candidates. Our main ambition is to grow as a business, and we are certain that Adapt will play a vital role in this.
As a startup it was important to find a solution that would quickly deliver the features we needed in the cloud and facilitate the high-level of candidate and client experience we pride ourselves on as recruitment specialists. Moving forward – as we grow as a business – the new Bond Adapt OnDemand implementation will be able to grow to meet our changing needs and enable us to effectively engage with clients and candidates throughout all stages of the recruitment cycle.
