At Bond, we love working with our partners. We provide key integrations with 3rd party vendors to improve recruitment business workflows and increase productivity and profitability. In 2016 we worked with a different partner each month, providing blogs, information and a webinar to highlight their service offerings and help solve real business problems that impact recruiters daily. In case you missed any, here is a quick look back at the past 12 months (we took a break during summer to enjoy the sunshine!).


We kicked the year off in January with predictive analytics, learning how you can improve your data quality and increase your employee’s usage of Bond Adapt, using cube19.  What does the road to data-driven decision making look like? Cube19 provided us with a vision of what you could do with predictive analytics, once you’ve got the data to forecast…check out the webinar recording below:


February brought you Icetrak and how to use it for business-critical messaging. The webinar was designed specifically to provide insight into how, in the recruitment sector, Icetrak’s text messaging might improve some of the ways you communicate with your candidates and workers. Icetrak helps and supports hundreds of recruitment organisations contact people – hundreds of thousands of times a day. Find out more by watching the webinar below:


Do you acknowledge the power of using your CRM? In March, Broadbean shared insight into getting the most out of your CRM and how to ensure you are only using quality data. Broadbean is the global leader in job distribution and candidate sourcing technology. The webinar focused on saving time, driving efficiency and helping you optimise your advertising to ensure the best possible results. The webinar can be viewed below:


In April, we worked with CloudCall who help drive business performance with the ability to ‘click to call’; making calls directly from AdaptUX. This automatically saves time and money, but more importantly increases call volumes, directly improving conversion rates. Our joint webinar showed recruiters how to make calls directly from AdaptUX, record and store calls, use call recordings for training purposes and improve consultant induction.

HIRABL gives you insight to identify potential backdoor hires and grow sales revenue. Don’t know what backdoor hires are? The webinar explained and showed how using AdaptUX and HIRABL allows you to quickly increase revenue by monitoring candidate movements as well as keeping tabs on hiring manager and alumni recruiter movements for business development opportunities. Our webinar from May can be seen below: 

Text Marketer

June was our last webinar before the summer holidays and we got to work with Text Marketer. They provided us with their top texting tips and how to avoid SMS howlers. Text Marketer are one of the UK’s first business SMS companies and have been living, eating and breathing SMS since 1999. If you want to know how to send messages in an engaging way, increasing your response rate, this webinar is one to watch:


In September, we took on the world with FireText! Their SMS vs The World webinar showed recruiters where to add text messages to their communication toolkit. Their tips provided ways to save time, fill vacancies super-fast and boost communication with candidates. We looked at all your favourite communication messages and how SMS can make your day more productive. You can view the webinar here:

Oak Innovation

October gave us the chance to work with Oak Innovation on People, Process and Technology. Their integration with AdaptUX links to your existing telephone system to offer a range of benefits that makes you more efficient and productive, ultimately generating more income. Our webinar with Oak Innovation showed how to maximise productivity from the two pieces of technology you use most each day, your recruitment software and telephone handset. 


Our last partner webinar of the year was in November with Clockwork. They explored the importance of communicating with your clients and candidates via SMS pre and post interview. They provided some great tips to ensure you find the right candidates and filled more positions successfully using SMS. Their platform is an easy text message API which integrates with AdaptUX.
