Bullhorn Shapes the Future of CRM as a Winner on 2016 CRM Watchlist
BOSTON, February 18, 2016 – Bullhorn®, the CRM company that helps customer-obsessed organizations transform their business relationships, today announced that it has been named as a winner on the 2016 CRM Watchlist, an acknowledgement of the most influential and powerful CRM vendors across all markets. The CRM Watchlist is compiled annually by Paul Greenberg, a highly-respected independent CRM analyst, who evaluated 131 CRM companies based on their impact on the market in 2015 and the years ahead.
“Businesses whose success is predicated upon long-term B2B relationships need a level of insight that just isn’t found in most CRM systems,” said Art Papas, founder and CEO of Bullhorn. “Bullhorn’s unprecedented relationship intelligence enables better account management and service delivery and its radical ease of use supports seamless system adoption. This is unique in the broader CRM landscape. CRM started out as a collection of on-premise contact databases and later moved into the cloud, but the industry has remained rather stagnant over the past decade. We’re taking intelligent CRM to the next level, and leading a new wave: providing radical transparency and ease of use to help businesses engage with their customers more effectively. Our appearance on Paul Greenberg’s CRM Watchlist is testament to the fact that we’re helping to shape the future of CRM.”
The criteria for inclusion on this year’s CRM Watchlist – as well as the quality and quantity of competition – were more stringent than ever before. Paul Greenberg noted in the 2016 CRM Watchlist announcement: “This was the toughest year ever to win…To win this, you have to be a formidable presence in the market. You are a company that has a great value, not just to the customers you serve, but also to the market you reside in. You are a company that has a sustainable impact on the actual direction that your market takes, and thus, for a company considering the purchase of products or services, a more than viable candidate for being the top choice in their arsenal.”
Bullhorn experienced record-setting growth in 2015, increasing bookings by 43 percent year-over-year and dramatically outpacing the growth rate of the CRM industry as a whole. After signing up more than 1,700 new customers last year across staffing and consulting, Bullhorn expects revenue to exceed nine figures for the first time in 2016. The company is also expanding its Boston headquarters, as well as its offices in London and St. Louis, continuing to grow its global employee count.
