MACILDOWIE EYES FURTHER GROWTH WITH £250,000 INVESTMENT
Recruitment specialist Macildowie has invested £250,000 in a new management system in order to facilitate further business growth.
The company, which has offices in Nottingham and Leicester, has made the investment in both new hardware and software. Top of the range PCs and laptops have been introduced for all staff and four high performance servers have been installed. The centerpiece of the changes is a new ITRIS Recruitment Management System, supplied by recruitment software expert ITEC Systems.
The bespoke ITRIS software will allow Macildowie’s consultants to quickly find the best candidates for clients in its three specialist areas of recruitment – HR, Finance, Procurement and Supply Chain. The overall speed of response and quality of communication for both clients and candidates will be improved, and the management team will benefit from comprehensive management reporting.
Commenting on the investment, Paul Milling, director of operations at Macildowie, said: “Over the last 18 months, the business has grown significantly. Not only have we employed an additional 22 consultants, but we have also launched our Procurement and Supply Chain division. As such, a new management system was required to support this growth and facilitate further expansion.
“Finding the perfect solution involved a rigorous procurement exercise, with tenders from eight different suppliers. However, we felt that the ITRIS software offered the flexibility and speed that we needed to help the company continue to go from strength-to-strength.”
The new management system is part of a continual investment programme at Macildowie, which was launched in 2007 when the company was acquired by Synetecs Ltd. Other significant investments include £100,000 to facilitate the move of Macildowie’s Leicester team to new offices at Meridian Business Park in late 2010.
