Bullhorn Speeds Time-to-Fill for High-Volume Talent Management with Closed-Loop VMS-CRM Integration

February 23, 2016 – Bullhorn®, the CRM company that helps customer-obsessed organisations transform their business relationships, today announced the release of VMS Slingshot, a new offering within its highly successful VMS Access product that enables a closed-loop VMS integration and workflow solution, helping recruitment businesses dramatically increase the speed with which they initiate orders, submit candidates, and fill jobs through VMS, resulting in higher margins and increased revenue.

First introduced in 2014, Bullhorn VMS Access has completely changed the game for recruitment agencies that fill jobs delivered through vendor management systems – a market that now includes almost every contingent firm. Bullhorn VMS Access integrates Bullhorn’s recruitment CRM with more than 60 leading vendor management systems including IQNavigator, Fieldglass, and Beeline, and automatically imports new and updated job orders directly into an organisation’s applicant tracking system or CRM, saving teams the need to manually cut and paste job order data.

Bullhorn VMS Slingshot takes the solution even further, enabling organisations to track and submit candidates, minimising the need to cut and paste CVs and other candidate information. With VMS Slingshot, Bullhorn has facilitated entirely closed-loop VMS-CRM integration. Recruitment organisations that would otherwise be mired in manual processes can now focus on filling job orders quickly and with the very best talent.

“VMS is the new reality for filling contingent job orders,” said Jonathan Novich, general manager for recruitment at Bullhorn. “You can’t work with major Fortune 500 companies and avoid VMS business. At the same time, with increasingly small margins on VMS orders, the need for speed is absolutely imperative. It’s the edge competitive agencies seek.  By eliminating the need for manual cut-and-paste and enabling a closed-loop integration between CRM and VMS environments, Bullhorn has taken an otherwise inefficient and resource-intensive recruitment process and made it cost-efficient for recruitment agencies.”

“Our goal at Procom is to streamline recruitment process workflows so that our recruiters can spend more time developing candidate and client relationships,” said David Forde, national program manager, client connections, at Procom.  “Bullhorn VMS Slingshot slashes the amount of time required to submit candidates to a VMS, which increases fill rate and frees up recruiter time and resources.  An added benefit of Bullhorn VMS Slingshot is that using the product has helped drive best practices for our firm around data integrity, since it necessitates that we keep our candidate records up-to-date.”
