Bullhorn Unveils Novo to Personalise the User Experience for the Future of Staffing

Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organisations transform their businesses, at Engage 2017 unveiled the Novo Experience, an entirely new way for staffing professionals to interact with the Bullhorn platform. Through a new technology foundation that incorporates industry-leading personalisation, automation, and artificial intelligence, as well as deeper collaboration, the Novo Experience fully unlocks the power of the Bullhorn platform and helps users maximise their productivity and effectiveness.

Built from the ground up to be open, extensible, and mobile, the Novo Experience fundamentally enhances the way customers work with the Bullhorn platform and radically improves the way recruiters interact with candidates. It adapts to the way users want to work – regardless of role, geography, language, or device – and enables them to work more effectively by eliminating redundancies and inefficiencies in their business processes.

Additional features of the Novo Experience include a more customizable menu system, improved note functionality, and a new submission workflow. As part of the “Vision for Innovation” session at Engage 2017, Bullhorn also showcased future capabilities: Boost and Whiteboard. Boost would significantly expand the search and filtering capabilities in Bullhorn by incorporating non-traditional elements from the system such as relationship aspects, screening questions, and more. Whiteboard is a future concept designed to be a virtual team space where recruiting and sales teams can collaborate on the most important tasks related to candidates, clients, and jobs to ensure that everyone is aligned on matters that need attention.

“We couldn’t be more excited to debut Novo to the recruitment industry, including its native mobile experience,” said Matt Fischer, Bullhorn president and CTO. “Staffing professionals have long demanded a user experience that offers increased personalisation and collaboration to make their jobs easier. With the Novo Experience, staffing and recruiting firms can further enhance their productivity and efficiency by capitalising on a new Bullhorn experience that is deeply rooted in Bullhorn’s powerful platform extensibility, which allows full customisation through its open architecture via clicks and not code. The Novo Experience will equip recruiting professionals with the tools they need to be successful in the future.”

In addition to providing increased personalisation and collaboration, Bullhorn empowers recruitment firms to increase their business efficiencies so they can make better, more informed operational decisions.

  • Bullhorn Healthcare Edition: Bullhorn has released a new suite of software designed specifically for healthcare staffing firms to power their recruitment cycle. It expands on Bullhorn’s enterprise-class applicant tracking system as the industry’s first best-of-breed solution for healthcare recruitment, including staffing of travel nurses, per-diem nurses, locum tenens physicians, and allied health professionals. The new recruitment software solution allows staffing agencies to maximise operational efficiencies, while also maintaining compliance and delivering incredible candidate and client experiences.
  • Front-to-Back Strategy:Bullhorn understands staffing firms’ increasingly complex challenges through the entire recruiting lifecycle. Up until now, there hasn’t been a best-in-class solution from a single vendor that integrates all of those processes well. Bullhorn is making major investments to solve this problem with new capabilities that enhance and seamlessly integrate front office, middle office, and back office functions. As part of that investment, Bullhorn has expanded middle office capabilities to allow more flexible capture and invoicing of time and expenses for workers with multiple pay rates per assignment. In the future, Bullhorn will be deepening core capabilities and improving the user experience for both candidates and staffing firm back office personnel.

Finally, Bullhorn extends new ways for staffing professionals to deliver incredible candidate experiences that drive business results.

  • Applicant Portal: Bullhorn now houses a single centralised destination for candidates to interact with staffing firms, which eliminates the need for candidates to use disparate software systems to submit and find information. In addition to streamlining onboarding and credentialing processes, the Bullhorn Applicant Portal allows staffing firms to capture more information up front, including answers to knockout questions, and facilitates easier candidate redeployment processes – both of which help to expedite the overall recruiting process.
