Bullhorn, the global leader in On Demand, front office staffing and recruiting software, today announced availability of the Bullhorn Winter Edition. Available now, the Bullhorn Winter Edition delivers enhanced email functionality, including fast search, document preview, organization and addressing capabilities, as well as integrated instant messaging (IM) to boost the productivity of staffing and recruiting professionals looking to manage client relationships more efficiently and source and place candidates faster, all from one integrated front office solution.

"Bullhorn's integrated email, featuring design and functionality specific to the staffing and recruiting industry, is what sets Bullhorn apart from other front office solutions," said Art Papas, CEO and co-founder of Bullhorn. "Enabling all email from clients, candidates, contacts and colleagues to be integrated with related documents and files provides a competitive advantage to staffing and recruiting firms that use Bullhorn. Based on input and feedback from our customers, Bullhorn is very excited to offer enhanced email and instant messaging functionality that can boost collaboration efforts and make our customers more productive and effective in their jobs."

Email Enhancements Make Staffing and Recruiting Professionals More Efficient
Enhancements to Bullhorn's integrated email significantly boost productivity in every aspect of working with clients, candidates, contacts and colleagues. In addition to recently introduced features that promote efficiency, such as the Quick Preview for viewing documents without launching Microsoft Word or other software, Infinite Scrolling of the Inbox, and Auto-Complete for fast email addressing, Bullhorn is introducing Fast Inbox Search. Bullhorn Fast Inbox Search can search millions of records with sub-second response time, eliminating time-consuming searches through large folders to locate specific emails.

"Bullhorn has always provided a superior email client," said Ian Ide, partner, technology division, Winter, Wyman & Company. "The email enhancements in the Bullhorn Winter Edition make searching for emails much faster, which is important to our recruiters who are often on the phone with a client or candidate when they need to access details from an email. Now we can enter multiple criteria in our search process and pull up the needed email much faster."

Instant Collaboration Ability with IM
Providing instant messaging (IM) as another means of communication within Bullhorn translates into increased productivity and collaboration for recruiters and staffing professionals. IM can be an effective tool for collaboration among team members - it saves time spent calling, leaving messages, picking up and responding to phone messages or wondering whether an email was received while waiting for a response. Bullhorn IM is unique from other IM solutions because it is integrated in the Bullhorn front office solution and doesn't require any downloads or installations of separate IM clients and their associated toolbars, or cumbersome user setup each time an employee joins the company.

Bullhorn IM allows staffing and recruiting professionals to stay connected with any colleague, anytime they are logged into Bullhorn. Bullhorn IM users have automatic access to IM as soon as they login to Bullhorn and can instantly see who is online, offline or away. The Bullhorn IM roster automatically groups users by department making it easier to find the right team member and users are automatically added or removed from IM when they join or leave the company. Similar to Bullhorn email messages, IM messages can be tracked as Activity against the user, candidate, contact and job records.

Enhanced Productivity Boosters
Bullhorn Winter Edition also includes numerous productivity boosters that are based on customer input and the top-voted feature recommendations in the Bullhorn Brainstorm, a Web 2.0 feature that allows Bullhorn customers to request and vote on new product features and enhancements.

The new features include:

  • Quick links to popular web sources and networks - embedded links to Google, Zoom Info and LinkedIn help users find new candidates, contacts or companies on the web with just one click. Bullhorn automatically populates the search fields on these engines with the candidate, contact or company name on the record currently in use
  • Simplified links - when a user shares a Bullhorn page with another user, the link displays the name of the person, company or job (job number included) instead of the page URL
  • Template filters - users have access to the right template with filters which allow them to filter the list of messages, notes, appointments, and task templates to display only their templates, their group's public templates, templates for anyone whose account they have delegation to view or all public templates
  • View recent activity for linked records - for clients who create linked candidate and contact records, they can now see the last 10 notes from both the candidate and contact record.
  • Spell check email subject lines - an enhancement to spell check, this functionality allows users to choose whether or not they want to spell check the subject line
  • Auto-delete appointment invitations -reduce inbox clutter by setting preferences to automatically delete appointment invitations from the inbox once the appointment has been accepted or declined
  • Easy job polling - send surveys directly from the job record to the contact listed on the job
