Delivering Innovation in Candidate Sourcing
Bullhorn is a committed leader in developing and bringing to market innovations in candidate sourcing. Bullhorn's Integrated Resume Search is the only solution to combine direct, real-time access to a number of premium job boards, including CareerBuilder.com and Yahoo! HotJobs as well as Monster.com through PowerSource, with an On Demand, Integrated Front office, dramatically saving time and increasing the productivity of recruiters during the sourcing and placement process. Integrated Resume Search's seamless integration with premium job boards and Bullhorn enables a staffing and recruiting firm's front office to gain considerable strategic advantage through the automation of the entire sales and placement process, from generating job orders and landing searches right through sourcing and placement.

Bullhorn has also developed a new comprehensive sourcing track, debuting at Bullhorn Live 2009, with five news sessions designed to help recruiters and staffing professionals drive billings with new techniques, best practices and tips for making faster placements. The Bullhorn Live 2009 Sourcing track sessions features industry experts who will share their valuable knowledge, sourcing tips and tricks and technology best practices for social networks, job boards and more.

Driving Sales Productivity
Bullhorn understands that managing client relationships is critical to generating job orders and has designed its customer relationship management system (CRM) to let sales people target the exact needs of new and existing clients, automatically and proactively. Whether it's conducting sales campaigns to generate new job orders or tracking the needs of existing clients, Bullhorn dynamically provides visibility into client relationships. All client emails, notes and activities are tracked in real-time in the CRM and are linked to job orders and applicants. When prospective clients respond to email campaigns, it's easy to create a prospect record in the CRM, and when a job order is sent to the firm, it is easily parsed into the job management system. An alert is then fired off to recruiters to begin the sourcing and placement process. Sales managers, through real-time updates of all emails, notes and activities, retain 360° visibility into every client and prospect relationship assigned to each sales person. Call lists, assigned tasks, tearsheets and notes shorten and provide a full view of the sales cycle from initial contact to receipt of the job order. Bullhorn customers have experienced up to two-thirds fewer candidate submissions for interviews, as a result of sourcing higher-quality, more qualified candidates with Bullhorn, and up to 25 percent fewer calls to generate job orders.

Bullhorn reporting is organized for ease of access and use, including running standard and custom reports as well as ad hoc reports written by users with Bullhorn360 BizAuthor. These reports enable unprecedented visibility, easier access and administration of reports for analyzing financial and non-financial data and finding trends.

At Bullhorn Live 2009, recruiting industry expert Danny Cahill will deliver the keynote presentation "Survivor's Manual: Leading your Firm in a Turbulent Economy," to help firms with the confidence to face the next several fiscal quarters with a little more certainty about where their business is headed. Cahill will share advice on what changes staffing and recruiting firms can make now to position themselves competitively for when the market turns.
