Brightwater Recruitment Consultancy is a professional services firm placing candidates in permanent and temporary positions, with over 70% of candidates being placed in permanent positions. Brightwater has become one of the five biggest employment consultancies in Ireland.
Prior to selecting Bond Adapt, Brightwater was relying on a bespoke in-house system. This system was administratively heavy; had no access to CV parsing, and lacked social media functionality. While the system was flexibly built, it failed to add the necessary value and time savings which are required to enable the organisation to work smarter.
Mairead Fleming, Managing Director, Brightwater Recruitment comments, “We conducted a thorough and comprehensive review of the market when looking for a software provider and eventually created a shortlist of three. We knew exactly what our pre-requisites were: the software had to be quick, efficient and easy to use as well as having social media functionality. We also wanted a provider that we could trust to support us, a piece of software that was robust and an end to end solution that included fast transfer of all our existing data. – Bond Adapt stood out amongst competitors as it ticked all of these boxes and more.”
Bond Adapt makes a recruiter’s daily tasks efficient and co-ordinated, bringing together contextually relevant data from multiple sources to enable the recruiter to perform searches and match candidates quickly and efficiently. In addition, social media content and profiles can be linked to associated records within Bond Adapt; while the Information Fly-outs module provides candidate profile information derived directly from LinkedIn.
Fleming says, “Our data is our livelihood. Bond not only has a track record of successfully deploying recruitment systems but could also seamlessly transfer data from our existing system to the new one. As the leading recruitment consultancy in Ireland it is important that we stay ahead of our competitors and the software and functionality from Bond will enable us to retain that competitive edge.”
Fleming continues, “Bond Adapt is adaptable to our business and really does work smarter. As all of the information on our systems is presented to us, it works in the background – as vacancies and candidates come in it is constantly searching, it really is an excellent piece of software. When I saw the functionality which Bond Adapt could offer us I knew that the benefits and efficiency which it would bring to our business will really make a difference.”
Fleming concludes, “The central system will enable our business information to be shared across our offices in Dublin, Belfast and Cork which again was a critical pre-requisite. The service from Bond and ability to match the software to our requirements has been excellent – we really feel like Bond understands us as an organisation and we look forward to working with them and developing the relationship further in the future.”
