BrightMove will be offering no cost migration options to existing Bullhorn, Sendouts, and MaxHire customers.
St Augustine, FL (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Bullhorn has recently acquired two of their major competitors, Sendouts and MaxHire. Although this merger will expand Bullhorn’s customer base, it will also raise a long list of questions that will need to be addressed for every affected user. The majority of companies that utilize their current Applicant Tracking Software made their selection for a reason. Many Sendouts and MaxHire customers most likely evaluated Bullhorn before choosing their current system. The thought that they may be forced into the system they formerly passed on, or some semblance of it, will likely leave many existing customers understandably worried and anxious about the future. Enter BrightMove, one of the fastest growing vendors in the staffing software space now offering incentives for concerned Bullhorn, Sendouts, and MaxHire customers wanting to explore other options.
For a limited time, BrightMove will be offering no cost migration options to existing Bullhorn, Sendouts, and MaxHire customers. Additionally, users will get access to hundreds of resume sources and the ability to search over 20,000 corporate career sites, enabling customers to rapidly grow their business in less time than ever before.
If history says anything, similar mergers such as the 2008 Taleo acquisition of Vurv covered by HR World (http://www.hrworld.com/features/taleo-vurv-deal-062408/), show that mergers typically have winners and losers. Now is the time to make long-term strategic plans. It is very common for the acquired company’s customers to see a change in support for their existing product, further development of their product often ceases, and the existing customer may be asked to move to the another platform, incurring migration costs and potentially higher monthly service fees.
