Back to Blog Bullhorn Business Intelligence: Expanded and Improved! by Guest Author on June 25th, 2012 With over 10 years of experience working with customers like you, we at Bullhorn have seen first-hand how critical business intelligence is to success of firms in the recruiting and staffing industry. In recent years, almost all types of businesses have begun leveraging data to operate more effectively, driving the need for a strong set of technologies and processes that use data to understand and analyze business performance, also known as business intelligence. In a numbers-driven industry like staffing, keeping up with this macro trend affords an especially significant opportunity for greater competitive advantage, faster growth and increased profit. With these things in mind, we are excited to announce the availability of expanded and improved business intelligence capabilities. These will allow you to harness your Bullhorn data more fully and drive your business forward even faster. Now, Bullhorn customers will be able to improve firm performance with capabilities that offer complete reporting directly from your Bullhorn data, which is accessible easily and quickly from where you and your team already work in Bullhorn.
