Recruitment specialists HB Human Capital has chosen Access’ integrated business solutions to underpin its ambitious growth plans. HB Human Capital has already seen turnover more than double in the last four years from £63 to £127m. It is now looking to repeat this success over the next four years.

Group financial controller, Peter Milne commented, “We’ve experienced tremendous growth and we plan to double our sales again. That’s why we made the decision to put a solid platform in place to help us on this journey.

“We chose Access Dimensions & FocalPoint because it offers strong functionality around core accounts and consolidation combined with its web-based expense management. The fact that it’s a fully integrated package means we’ll be able to easily and quickly capture expenses without having to rekey information.

“We’re also going to be implementing Access’ Dashboard software, bringing together data from both the Access solution and our front end recruitment system. This will allow us to easily track and report on activity within the business in real time and for that information to be presented in a meaningful form. "

The business, which has more than 300 employees, will also be implementing Access’ web-based SelectHR system to streamline its internal HR processes.

HB Human Capital operates a buy-and-build acquisition strategy across a broad range of sectors, looking to purchase existing recruitment firms or back entrepreneurs that are looking to start their own businesses. The group consists of nine separate entities with its head office in London. It has successfully doubled profits at companies it has bought and transformed start-ups into high-growth firms making £1m net profitability in just 18 months.

HB Human Capital will use the Access solution to drive efficiencies throughout the business, allowing it to continue its growth plans. “The software will help us to reduce the burden of back-office administration so we can focus on what we do best – building great businesses. In addition to choosing the right solution, it was also important to choose the right people to implement it," said Milne. "We developed a good relationship with Access from the start. They’re very responsive to our requirements and highly professional.”
