Bond International Software, the global provider of recruitment & human capital management software and services, today announces that it has been added to the 2008 Gartner Magic Quadrant for E-Recruitment Software – the first time that Bond has been included.
Gartner notes that Bond “has a solid global service and support infrastructure, as well as a global product foundation. Its experience in the third-party staffing firm market provides it with credibility in the corporate recruiting market and it has financial viability through its stock market listing”.
Software vendors were assessed according to two primary criteria – Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision – resulting in 22 vendors being selected for inclusion in the quadrant from a total surveyed base of 128.
Only vendors that had over 100 e-recruitment software customers, 1,000 employees and more than $25 million in total revenue were included in the research, so as, according to Gartner, “to reflect the continuing maturing and consolidation in the market”.
Bond is a rapidly growing provider of web-based e-recruitment and talent management software to the corporate market.
Bond Talent is a powerful and versatile web-based application specifically developed for organisations who wish to streamline their in-house recruitment processes and save costs, used by some of the best known corporations, including HBOS, Habitat, The Co-operative Group and easyJet.
Tim Richards, Managing Director of Bond International Software, comments,
“We are delighted to be recognised within the industry in this way. Gartner’s emphasis in the report on recruitment automation to improve efficiency, whilst supporting industry & geographic needs and recruitment challenges, highlights precisely our functionality and ethic.
“Our software products are designed not as ‘out-of-the-box’ solutions, but as flexible platforms from which we can evolve an entirely tailored solution to meet any business’ recruitment needs.”
The Gartner report also highlighted areas in which the customer base expects to see development in the functionality of recruitment software, most notably candidate relationship management, workforce planning and interview management.
Richards comments, “We already provide many of the services mentioned in the areas of required development. Those requirements that are not currently within our portfolio will be in the very near future and are already being actively pursued in our research division.”
