Connect Group Consulting Limited selects GRIP
Multi-national and multi-discipline recruitment consultancy Connect Group Consulting Limited (Connect) has selected GRIP software from 2LS to underpin its placement activities. GRIP was chosen for its ability to manage the entire recruitment process across Connects diverse activities, which comprise several different and highly-competitive global market areas.
Connect has grown rapidly since it was founded in 2000, and this growth has been recognised by its inclusion twice in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100. It has regional representation across 70 countries, with international clients and candidates, and it focuses on three market areas: rail and construction energy and IT. To cope with this fast-moving and complicated operational landscape, it needs powerful specialist recruitment software.
With its growth and success, Connects existing recruitment software solution was no longer sufficiently robust and flexible. After a thorough review of the market and in-depth trials, it has now migrated its entire operations across to the more powerful GRIP from 2LS.
GRIP is now being used throughout the organisation to manage the entire placement process. Staff across Connects different offices are using it for activities from posting and parsing CVs through application matching and submission and on to closing placements in the back office.
According to director Andrew Brundle, We needed a software solution which would make us more responsive and agile. GRIPs sophisticated skills matrix enables us to search our extensive databases quickly and accurately, while staff are making full use of its unique drag-and-drop functions to access and transfer up-to-date information immediately. And its integration with Microsoft Outlook and other Office products means that we dont have to input information manually: GRIP downloads and fills in keywords automatically, speeding up the process considerably.
GRIP was developed by recruitment specialist 2LS to meet the exacting demands of a recruitment consultancy. It manages and underpins all aspects of the placement process covering clients, candidates and vacancies, and is currently in successful use by recruiters in the UK and overseas.
