Recruitment agency AshwellForbes Enjoys Longstanding Relationship with Recruitment System Provider, Bond International Software, as Entire Recruitment Process and CRM System is Built on Staffing Agency Software, Bond Adapt -

LONDON, January 4, 2011 - AshwellForbes, a specialist recruitment agency placing sales, marketing,
recruitment and HR professionals throughout Wiltshire and Berkshire, has
enjoyed first-class support and a strong professional relationship with
recruitment system ( provider
Bond International Software, the stock market-listed global provider of
recruitment agency software (
& human capital management software & services, since deploying staffing
agency software ( Bond Adapt as a hosted solution in January 2007.

Bond Adapt provides AshwellForbes' entire recruitment process
infrastructure as the software - hosted by Bond and accessed online by the
agency - processes and stores all client, candidate and vacancy details,
tracks all candidates' progress through its CRM function, including
post-placement management, and through the ease of use and flexibility of the
recruitment system, reduces the administrative burden associated with filling

Before implementing Bond Adapt in 2007, the company was running the
entire recruitment process manually, using simple spreadsheets to store
candidates' details - a hugely time-consuming process.

Julian Forbes, Director at AshwellForbes, comments, "As we grew as a
business, accumulating more and more clients and candidates, it became
essential that their details were stored safely and accurately and that their
path through the placement process could be tracked in real-time.
Furthermore, as we are accredited by the Recruitment and Employment
Confederation (REC), we are obliged to adhere to certain guidelines within
our industry, one of which makes accurate data storage and tracking of
candidate progress a prerequisite of membership. However, using spreadsheets
and manual administrative processes made this difficult to both achieve and
evidence, and so we needed to make our recruitment system infrastructure more

Forbes continues, "We are a comparatively small agency, making full IT
investment, including infrastructure hardware such as high-capacity servers,
somewhat excessive. The ability to access the full functionality of Bond
Adapt recruitment agency software through the internet, without having to
invest in IT hardware has made this a particularly attractive option - a
cost-effective, yet highly efficient solution for a business such as ours."

Forbes concludes "With 2,500 candidates and an ever increasing number of
candidates currently on our database, we appreciate that we are not a big
company. This however, has never affected the level of service we receive
from Bond. The recruitment system itself is ideally suited for a business
such as ours - in fact Bond Adapt staffing agency software provides the
backbone of our infrastructure - and the way in which our service and support
queries have been handled has been admirable."
