"VINCERE TICKS ALL THE BOXES"
HOW IMPORTANT IS A RECRUITMENT SOFTWARE IN RUNNING A RECRUITMENT BUSINESS?
“We have both been working in recruitment for quite some time and have used quite different CRMs including Bullhorn, Jobscience, Salesforce, Jobadder and Colleague. The problem with big vendors is that I find that they tend to want to give value for money, and they try to do that by pushing out 1000 ways you can do things.
For example, let’s say there are 12 ways to add a candidate, but only 6 ways will show up in certain searches, and the other 6 ways in different searches. The thing is, with so many ways to do one thing, people will have preferences and it gets messy. It becomes annoying because you have to work on establishing company policies a lot more so that everyone in the company does it the same way.”
IN WHAT WAY HAS VINCERE HELPED YOU?
“Vincere ticks the boxes, we’ve sampled a lot of systems. Honestly, I think what clinched it for us was the simplicity of use, and also from what we can see, Vincere was working for businesses at our size and also for multi-nationals. I was particularly taken by the fact that Randstad is also using Vincere and it makes me happy that we’ve got a product that is fit for use and works regardless of what size you are.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FEATURE?
“My favourite feature is definitely the Instant Job Board. The way it can be integrated into the website is perfect – you wouldn’t be able to tell you were from a different website as it seamlessly transitions. Massive plus point for us.”
