Bullhorn, a Salesforce Summit Partner, acquires Textkernel to advance AI solutions for Salesforce customers

I am excited to share that Bullhorn has acquired Textkernel, a long-time Marketplace partner and industry leader in talent acquisition and Sourcing AI solutions for staffing and recruiting agencies, corporations, and other technology providers. I’ve known Gerard, Guus, and the rest of the Textkernel leadership team for many years, as we have hundreds of joint customers. A critical area of our business that we have collaborated on is our Salesforce solutions. 

Bullhorn is a Salesforce Summit Partner and the #1 ISV for recruitment

Since entering the Salesforce ecosystem in 2017, Bullhorn has invested significantly in building our Salesforce portfolio, including ATS, Onboarding, Shift Scheduling, Automation, Candidate Engagement, and Middle Office solutions. Over the past six years, we’ve grown from having a small group of customers on the Salesforce platform to becoming the #1 Salesforce ISV for recruitment, five times larger than our next nearest competitor on the AppExchange, supporting over 85,000 users globally every day. As a Summit Partner, the highest status available in the AppExchange program, we are fully committed to the Salesforce ecosystem. Textkernel has been mission-critical to our explosive growth on the Salesforce platform, helping our customers parse, source, and match the best candidates for roles they are trying to fill. The acquisition of Textkernel deepens our commitment to the Salesforce platform and accelerates our AI strategy.

Textkernel’s best-in-class parsing and matching technologies accelerate Bullhorn’s AI strategy for Salesforce customers

Sourcing AI has been a huge focus for Bullhorn. In today’s competitive landscape, finding suitable candidates, whether from within a recruitment agency database or externally, presents a significant challenge. Talent acquisition remains a top three priority in our annual GRID industry survey. Textkernel’s parsing technology is unparalleled, and its matching technology is used by many of the largest recruitment agencies in the world. The combination of Textkernel and Bullhorn will substantially help our Salesforce customers solve their talent-sourcing challenges.

Textkernel unlocks the next chapter of solutions we can offer Salesforce customers. By aligning our collective roadmaps and working closely with our customers, we are opening a new chapter of possibilities on the Salesforce platform for our customers. We are excited to have Textkernel join us on this journey and to welcome members of the Textkernel team into our Bullhorn family. Congratulations Gerard, Guus, and the Textkernel leadership team!

Forward together!
