Staffing Powerhouse CDI Corp. Chooses Bullhorn’s Applicant Tracking System and Social Recruiting Products

Bullhorn®, the global leader in recruiting software, today announced that CDI Corporation – one of the largest global providers of engineering, information technology and staffing services – entered into a multi-year software and services contract with Bullhorn.  CDI will use the Bullhorn applicant tracking system (ATS) and social recruiting product Bullhorn Reach Team to power its end-to-end recruiting processes for more than 500 users. This decision caps off a lengthy and detailed selection process, in which CDI selected Bullhorn after evaluating 10 other recruiting software vendors. CDI anticipates that partnering with Bullhorn will help the company become more efficient and increase productivity and throughput, thanks to Bullhorn’s record of success in driving its customers’ speed and growth.

CDI’s selection began with expectations that consolidating their multiple existing global ATS solutions and standardizing on the leading recruiting software solution would increase recruiter efficiency and improve speed-to-market without increasing costs.  Bullhorn was chosen as a partner for its proven ability to execute on implementation and user adoption globally. Steven Levenkron, chief information officer at CDI, said of the selection process: “We envisioned a solution that would allow us to leverage a singular technology across our many businesses and workflows in order to maximize our overall return on technology investment.  With Bullhorn we will be able to leverage technology to optimize and automate the recruitment lifecycle.”

“In order to thrive in an increasingly competitive market, we recognize the need to maximize our recruitment processes and synchronize them with technology,” said Stuart Batchelor, executive vice president and president of Global Staffing Services for CDI. “Our investment in this technology will allow us to engage candidates faster and more efficiently, while also improving our ability to leverage social media and mobile recruitment, ultimately enabling us to continue to provide world-class service to our clients in the ever-changing market. Bullhorn is a critical foundation for the speed and productivity gains we’re targeting.”

“CDI is tackling critical strategic initiatives around efficiency and operational effectiveness within its staffing businesses” said Justin Teague, chief operating officer at Bullhorn. “CDI selected Bullhorn over other vendors for its leadership in the global market and its ability to increase recruiting performance with a streamlined end-to-end solution that works the way recruiters do – quickly, throughout an interruption-driven day.  We’re pleased that they value Bullhorn as not just a technology provider but a trusted partner with deep domain expertise, process knowledge, and as a long-term value-added contributor to the success of their initiatives.”
