Originally launched as an online marketplace, Bullhorn was used by creative types such as designers, artists, and copywriters to search for contract work. After speaking with a friend, Founder and CEO Art Papas discovered that the system closely mapped to a staffing agency’s typical relationship management workflow, so he began pitching it to recruiters. Shortly thereafter, Papas, coding the software himself, interviewed recruiters and built in the CRM functionality that they wanted. Ever since, Bullhorn’s leadership team has been focused on delivering dynamic and secure solutions for service-based industries built in collaboration with agile development and user-centered design.
With an entrepreneurial approach and great passion for the customers we serve, Bullhorn has been leading the staffing software industry for over a decade with a variety of product offerings and its cloud-based CRM is now used by relationship-driven businesses of all kinds. Committed to being a leader in all that we do, Bullhorn partners with several non-profit organizations and participates in several different community service events throughout the year.
Bullhorn’s commitment to innovation-driven design and development has been at the forefront of its products and service offerings since inception. This philosophy and strategy has been a constant driver throughout the life of the company and will continue to be a competitive force moving forward. As a company, we understand the market and exactly what our customers need to maximize performance and boost top-line growth. We know that putting the best tools in front of a team of professionals is crucial to its success, and that is exactly why Bullhorn is dedicated to cultivating a strong innovation pipeline.
