Practicus Picks ProNet
Fast growing recruitment company chooses ProNet for flexibility
Practicus, the interim management provider and one of the fastest growing companies in the UK according to recent Sunday Times research*, has adopted First Choice Softwares Recruitment Database, RDB ProNet.
Jason Luckhurst, Practicus MD and recent winner of Young Director of the Year from the Institute of Directors** said, Fast growing businesses like ours need flexible software, particularly if they are to thrive in the current economy. One of the things that drew me to RDB ProNet is that its a .NET application that integrates well with Microsoft-based products enabling us to join our different applications together with a single platform.
Practicus migrated to RDB ProNet from one of the other leading recruitment software products. Lee Babbage, Practicuss Technical Project Manager was in charge of the implementation, Obviously no migration is without its challenges but I was surprised at how easy it was to tailor their solution to our highly sophisticated business model. Everything we have asked ProNet to do has been achieved. It looked great when first demonstrated to us and Im pleased to say that it loses none of that sparkle when translated into a live recruitment environment.
This new solution will prove crucial to the ongoing development of the company. Luckhurst adds, We bought our original recruitment software because it was a well established brand. While it suited us at the time, we now need greater flexibility for the current market and to support the growth of our business. RDB ProNet provides that scope. When youre setting up a new division in Europe, expanding business in the UK and adding layers of value to your existing service proposition, this kind of flexibility takes away a lot of the pain.
Roy Snart, MD of First Choice Software, said that he was delighted that Practicus had chosen ProNet and that he was confident that it would help Practicus to achieve its goals. First Choices sales have been holding up extremely well despite the recession with sales increasing by 55% in 2008, thanks mainly to bigger companies looking around to replace ageing systems. He went on to say that more and more companies seem to be interested in sourcing all components of the recruitment and management process from a single partner and that FCS is able to offer a full range of products including vendor management, online timesheets, business intelligence and mobile applications as well as RDB ProNet recruitment software.
