Montreal Associates to implement TVisons Agency Time
TVision Technology, Microsoft Gold ERP Partner based in Surrey, has been contracted to implement Agency Time at Montreal Associates, London based specialist IT recruitment agency dealing with contract and permanent placements. Agency Time provides a fully integrated back office solution, tailored to the needs of the recruitment industry, built in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV platform.
Montreal Associates was founded in 1978 to enable IT professionals to find contracts in an emerging technology market and today is one of the largest and most influential companies in Enterprise Software recruitment. Over the years the existing support systems were noticeably failing to keep pace with the demands of the business and so an alternative was sought.
David Thuillier, MD at Montreal Associates: “We first evaluated Agency Time two years ago and were extremely impressed with the solution. However, we also realised it would mean a seismic shift for our users who had become accustomed to the necessity of manual workarounds. The advice from TVision was that we needed to ensure we had the best possible project team in place if we were to manage risk and achieve a successful implementation. We were impressed by their integrity and now, with the right team on board, we are confident of achieving that success.”
As for so many recruitment agencies, time is a precious commodity at Montreal Associates and rapid implementation of the new solution a must. Luckily the standard Agency Time configuration of Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a great fit and makes use of the standard Microsoft Rapid Implementation tools. “Implementing systems does mean more work, often for users already stretched,” Richard Thompson, MD TVision Technology. “Rapid implementation focused on standard software helps minimise this. We are confident that Montreal Associates has the team, focus and energy to drive the project forward to go-live within a few months.”
TVision has been steadily building an enviable reputation for delivering the Agency Time solution to recruitment agencies since 2002. Early clients are now passing a decade of success using the Microsoft Dynamics NAV based solution.
“The success of Montreal Associates has been built on core values of partnership, reliability and passion for excellence.” David Thuillier continues, “We feel there is great synergy between our organisations and are looking forward to a long and happy partnership.”
