Morgan McKinley makes strategic shift to the cloud

Morgan McKinley has undertaken a full strategic rollout of Bullhorn’s on-demand, cloud-based recruitment software. The move is designed to consolidate the recruiter’s business activities across its operations in ten countries, and provide Morgan McKinley’s team with access to a single recruitment platform worldwide.

Having successfully trialled Bullhorn in its Paris office since January 2012, the company is now committed to a worldwide rollout which will reach completion in Q2 2013. By that stage, Morgan McKinley will have over 500 Bullhorn users in ten countries.

Don Ryan, Morgan McKinley Group IT Director, comments: “When we made the decision to change from our current provider, partnering with a true Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) multitenant solution was essential to make the switch worthwhile. The chosen provider had to be able to demonstrate that its system would deliver tangible benefits to the business.

“After completing an extensive review, Bullhorn was selected. The Bullhorn team demonstrated its ability to deliver a global solution backed up by examples of existing geographically dispersed businesses and the solution capably provides the strategic efficiencies we were looking for.”

The implementation allows Morgan McKinley to effectively mine data from all of its offices. Ryan explains: “We have made a number of acquisitions and the disparate systems we were using became increasingly problematic as we moved towards our goal of using recruitment, finance and HR data to inform future global best practice. Bullhorn allows us to draw accurate recruitment intelligence into our new data warehouse for analysis.”

Ryan continues: “As well as providing us with a single global platform, Bullhorn will enable us to track key performance indicators (KPIs) over time, which will reveal opportunities and highlight best practice across all aspects of our business. KPIs that track sales, recruitment output, and use of technology, will enable us to build a complete picture of our operation, so that we can react strategically and continually improve the service we deliver to customers.”

Peter Linas, Bullhorn’s International MD, notes that the partnership highlights the increasing importance of KPIs and business intelligence to organisations in the recruitment industry: “Big data is more important than ever before and Bullhorn’s partnership with Morgan McKinley will create auditable data streams that will instantly feed intelligence back to management from each of the Morgan McKinley offices around the world. KPI measurement is invaluable to any organisation seeking efficiency and best practice intelligence, which can then be implemented either from the top down as a global strategy, or according to regional measures of success.”

Ryan concludes: “It’s important to be able to source the best talent internationally and Bullhorn allows us to operate from market to market, be it Shanghai to London, or Sydney to Paris. The system is customised to our requirements, which vary across regions, but still adheres to our specific needs.”

Morgan McKinley is the recruiter of choice for professional services, financial services, and commercial industry placements for large corporations and smaller organisations. The organisation’s capability extends across ten countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia-and Australia.
