What tips would you give other Voyager customers about to take the plunge?
As well as highlighting relevant features, Kyloe can help you customise Bullhorn, so use it as an opportunity to bring your CRM wish list to life. Don’t just do what you’ve always done as that defeats the point of moving! Make sure your wish list is informed by your users; talk to them regularly to stay on top of what is, and isn’t, working for them.
Any processes that your users say are taking too long need addressing. Nothing should take “too long” with a system like Bullhorn. Kyloe Apps are invaluable for saving time – AwesomeDocs has made document generation and compliance so much smoother and more than halved the amount of time this process takes for Cherry.
You can never plan too much. As the old cliché states – what you get out is only as good as what you put in, so focus on data mapping (it is the most important area and less is more in the long run) and accuracy - particularly how you are going to make sure it stays up to date.
Don’t rush, and test thoroughly before you go live. Get your configuration as close to perfect as possible before launching. It’s not going to be 100%, but for maximum impact on your users from day one, the closer the better!
One last tip which might sound obvious but is often overlooked; schedule training to avoid the busiest times of the month so you can get the most attention from your consultants. Without their full attention you risk losing some the initial excitement and buy in very quickly!
What has been the biggest benefit of moving from Voyager to Bullhorn?
Access to Bullhorn Marketplace partners and products such as Awesome Docs (with Docusign) from Kyloe. Cherry have also implemented Cube 19 and Icetrak texting so far. Working with partners means more customisation and as a result, faster and further progression.
A CRM which contains useful and actionable data; hotlists and favourite searches can be used to manage data, and clients can be fed more relevant candidates giving a competitive edge and resulting in increased revenue.
The more efficient workflow saves consultants invaluable time. In addition, website integration means that candidates can login to keep their data fresh, making for a more accurate CRM, and freeing up consultants to focus on making placements.
