Bullhorn Opens Platform
Bullhorn Opens Platform and Launches the Bullhorn Marketplace
Release of First Application Marketplace in the industry supports company vision of opening the Bullhorn platform for UK clients and partners
Bullhorn, the global leader in On Demand, front office staffing and recruiting software, today launched the Bullhorn Marketplace, the recruitment industry's first destination for software applications and services that extend the Bullhorn Platform. The Marketplace provides best-of-breed solutions that are tightly integrated with Bullhorn and gives Bullhorn clients the ability to leverage the appropriate technology for their unique business needs. The availability of the Marketplace is a major milestone in fulfilling Bullhorn's vision of providing recruiters and partners the industry's first fully extensible application platform.
"The business climate of 2010 demands that staffing and recruiting firms provide their clients with greater flexibility and speed than ever before. Simultaneously, the host of technology solutions and services available to the industry has expanded dramatically. Customers need the ability to evaluate and integrate technology solutions into their operations quickly and efficiently to gain an edge," explained Art Papas, Bullhorn's Founder and CEO. "With the launch of the Bullhorn Marketplace, Bullhorn together with its partners has created a broad and extensive platform of business solutions aimed at solving the needs of staffing and recruiting professionals. The Bullhorn Marketplace is the most robust technology and service ecosystem in the industry."
The Bullhorn Marketplace enables recruiters to choose from an extensive range of cutting edge applications and services, all of which are already fully integrated with the Bullhorn Platform and can be accessed on demand to drive bottom-line results. As the first application marketplace in the industry, Bullhorn clients are afforded a revolutionary set of advantages. The freedom, choice and the ability to tie applications and services together is unprecedented in the industry.
All partner solution providers in the Bullhorn Marketplace have joined the new Bullhorn Alliance Partner Program. Members of the Bullhorn Alliance Partner Program receive global market exposure, collaborative business planning, dedicated partner relationship and technical support. Initial Alliance Partners include: Broadbean, CAL Business Solutions, CareerBuilder.com, Daxtra, First Advantage, HarQen, M5 Networks, Monster Worldwide, RealMatch, The Code Works, Virtual Software and ZoomInfo. Each partner provides best-of-breed technology or services that integrates directly with the Bullhorn Platform.
"We are excited about bringing such an innovative concept to UK recruiters. It underlines Bullhorn's commitment to building a strong presence in the UK as we can now offer our clients access to this unique mix of applications," said Peter Linas, Bullhorn's UK MD. "We are looking forward to adding more UK recruitment solutions to the Marketplace to enable recruiters to access all the tools they need to achieve success."
The Marketplace initially includes solutions in the following categories:
Sourcing and Client Prospecting
The sourcing solutions from Bullhorn's partners provide deep capabilities to efficiently source both candidates and client prospects, including direct integration with the world's most popular job boards and business networks like CareerBuilder.com, Monster, RealMatch and ZoomInfo job posting with Broadbean candidate searching and matching through Daxtra and skills assessment with First Advantage.
The Code Works, and its new product VMS ExpressT for Bullhorn, integrates Vendor Management Systems (VMS) with Bullhorn's Applicant Tracking System by automating both job order entry and candidate submission directly from a long roster of VMS systems, dramatically impacting both time to fill and order to fill ratios.
Bullhorn expands its back office solutions, providing customers with the flexibility to choose the right back office to meet their needs.
Virtual Software provides a unique set of web-based timesheet, billing and expense reporting solutions for the Intuit QuickBooks platform.
CAL Business Solutions' StaffLinx GP provides a fully integrated Bullhorn experience by directly connecting Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) back office accounting software to your Bullhorn front office system, eliminating double entry, expediting invoicing, and enhancing payroll.
The Bullhorn Marketplace offers innovative telephony solutions from M5 Networks and HarQen.
M5 Networks' M5Connect plug-in joins Bullhorn and the telephone for optimal information management and productivity with one click dialing.
With HarQen's VoiceScreener, recruiters are able to easily create and distribute automated voice interviews that are integrated into Bullhorn's dashboard, adding another key dimension to the recruitment process that goes beyond a simple resume.
To support and further grow the Bullhorn Alliance Partner network, Bullhorn launched the Bullhorn Developer Center. With full API documentation, articles, and support forums, the center is the premier resource for partners and developers building solutions that extend the Bullhorn Platform.
