- Integration of Staffing Agency Software Bond Adapt and Daxtra
Technologies Allows the Award-winning Engineering Recruitment Agency to
Improve Their Recruitment System via Faster CV Processing and Searching

Orion Group, the global leader in providing personnel to the
engineering industry, has enhanced its recruitment system
(www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=184) and achieved considerable
annual savings thanks to its integration of staffing agency software
(www.bondadapt.com/section.asp?catid=1207) Bond Adapt
(www.bondadapt.com) - the specialist portfolio of recruitment system
software applications from Bond International Software - and Daxtra
Technologies, the CV parsing and search solutions provider. The integration
increases the speed with which candidates' CVs can be processed and
seamlessly added to their recruitment agency software
(www.bondadapt.com/index.asp?showussite=0), Bond Adapt, thus reducing
the amount of necessary manual administration. This has resulted in annual
global cost savings of over GBP1,000,000 for Orion Group, via a significant
reduction in administrative overheads.

Orion Group is also using a second technology from Daxtra which allows
consultants to search through CVs within Bond Adapt's system 60% faster than
if they were to carry out a manual search at the same time as searching all
their online candidate sources, such as job boards and social networks.
Whereas previously, consultants may have been spending up to three hours a
day searching for candidates on various job boards, they can now perform the
search from Bond Adapt using Daxtra in less than a third of the time with
this improved recruitment system.

Orion Group specialises in placing candidates in a range of contract and
permanent positions, predominantly across the oil and gas sector. Based in
the UK with nine offices nationwide, and a further 19 worldwide, the
recruitment agency has over 280,000 candidates on their database, and places
candidates all over the world.

Since purchasing staffing agency software, Bond Adapt, from Bond
International Software nine years ago, Orion Group has enhanced their
recruitment system, as proven by their winning of the prestigious Queens
Award for Enterprise in the international trade category. In 2010 Orion Group
was also placed 1st for engineering recruitment in the 'Recruitment
International Magazine' poll.

Derek Warrander, IT Service Manager at Orion Group, explains, "The
decision to integrate Bond's recruitment agency software with Daxtra has not
only resulted in substantial cost savings across the business but has also
saved hundreds of man-hours per week. Previously we had a substantial
administrative team across our offices whose dedicated job it was to process
CVs and enter them into the Bond Adapt recruitment system. With the
integration of staffing agency software Bond Adapt and Daxtra however, the
time previously taken to complete this task can now be put to better use
elsewhere, allowing our recruitment consultants to focus their energy on core
recruitment competencies, such as placing candidates. The integration of the
recruitment agency software itself was flawless, and having this ease of use
from the outset immediately confirmed to us that we had made the right choice
with our selection of software provider."

Warrander continues, "As a global recruitment agency, we were hugely
impressed by the fact that staffing agency software Bond Adapt gives us
access to one centralised recruitment system worldwide. This allows our
consultants, no matter where they are in the world, to access and search the
same data from one central recruitment system. Naturally this is far quicker
than if we were to have paper-based filing, therefore making the recruitment
system overall far more efficient and timely. Bond is the leading provider of
recruitment agency software and this has certainly been reflected not only in
the excellent customer service that Bond provide us with, but also with the
results that we have seen so far, which equate to over GBP1,000,000 annual
global savings."

Sergei Makhmodov, Commercial Director at Daxtra Technologies, comments,
"Some of our clients have reported savings of over 90% of the cost they had
previously spent on CV processing and data entry after deploying Daxtra's
Candidate Capture product. Orion Group has achieved dramatic cost savings
through the integration of Daxtra's products with their Adapt recruitment
system, and this is a clear testament to the success of our partnership. Bond
International Software is a major player within the staffing agency software
industry, with a considerable market share, and a number of top recruitment
agencies on their books. Adapt was around about the first recruitment system
that we integrated with, and seven years later, we are supporting hundreds of
customers as a partnership."

Tim Richards, Managing Director of Bond International Software,
concludes, "Orion Group have demonstrated through the integration of Bond
Adapt with Daxtra just how flexible and effective Bond's recruitment agency
software is. We are delighted that Orion Group has seen such substantial cost
savings as a result of the integration. Rather than force reinvention of
existing recruitment processes, the staffing agency software is designed to
simplify the pre-existing day-to-day processes, which reduces the amount of
time spent on unproductive administration, allowing employees to focus on
core competencies, such as placing candidates in roles."
