Tom's 5 lessons learned from his Bullhorn implementation

At Kyloe we always strive to make our clients happy, so after seeing Tom Cokill take to LinkedIn recently to share his delight on his recent Bullhorn implementation with us, we were thrilled by his feedback.

We caught up with Tom to give our thanks and are pleased to share with you his thoughts after his experience working with us.

Here are his ‘5 lessons learned’ for anyone thinking about or going through the same process.

"For the second time in my career I have migrated from one CRM to another, both times from an older system that had seen better days and lacked innovation over Bullhorn.

This time was on a scale not like before, we had 20 years of data and over 100,000,000 unique records across the platform. It was organised in, let's say, a unique way!"

"Here's what I learned:

1) Not all data is relevant, if it doesn't provide insight or isn't a legal requirement - bin it. That candidate CV from 1987? Not business critical.

2)  You get what you pay for. True expertise can sometime feel more expensive in the beginning, but the added value pays off in the long run. We chose Kyloe and without their expertise and guidance the project simply wouldn't have happened.

3)  By not using your CRM religiously, to its maximum potential, you're probably leaving millions of opportunities on the table and not delivering true value to your customers The competitive advantage of a well-oiled, well coded, and widely adopted CRM in your recruitment business could be the difference between success and failure.

4)  Not all CRMs are created equally - we met with and thoroughly reviewed 10 suppliers. The majority felt stale, with not much innovation since the last time I did this in 2015. We felt Bullhorn was best fit for us - make sure you see them all and review what is right for now and into the future.

5)  This brings me to final point - it is essential you go with a provider that has world class training and support. You're going to need it and as most recruiters don't employ system admins/analysts or engineers, without great support you won't maximize the potential and will likely end up with a very expensive filing cabinet!"
