ATS Euromaster, the largest comprehensive tyre service provider within the UK, has signed a European-wide contract that will see Bond Talent, from stock market-listed Bond International Software implemented throughout ten countries.
The new five-year, six-figure contract is for a fully Bond-hosted recruitment system which will enable the company to manage its entire recruitment through an online portal.
In implementing the software, ATS Euromaster predicts numerous operational benefits, including that the system will significantly reduce administration costs.
Sigrid Barnes, Group Resourcing Manager for ATS Euromaster, comments:
“We are expecting that the system will free up significant amounts of time for our managers. From now on, we will be able to process all of our recruits through one centralized, online portal and everyone from head office through to more than 480 centre managers will be able to see what’s going on in their area of the company – without having to pick up a phone or send an email.”
Established in 1961, ATS Euromaster is the UK’s largest comprehensive tyre service provider.
The Birmingham-based company operates nationally and employs more than 3,500 people.
ATS Euromaster is part of the Euromaster group, which has more than 1600 Services centres throughout 10 different European countries – UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Holland, Spain, Sweden, Austria, and Finland.
The Bond Talent system will be initially used by 100 staff in the UK head office and over 480 centre managers within the UK. The next phase will see the European roll-out across all of the European branches.
“We chose Bond International Software because what the company offered us fitted perfectly with our criteria. We needed a recruitment system with the ability to go pan-European. Bond were able to offer us that capability as well as being an extremely cost-effective solution.”
Bond Talent is a specialist application for the global recruitment and talent management markets which has been designed to greatly reduce hiring costs and to enhance the strategic capability of in-house resourcing teams.
The system is user-friendly and flexible allowing for reduced paperwork and improved efficiency.
This gives key recruitment staff more time to concentrate on development rather than administrative tasks.
Tim Richards, Managing Director of Bond International Software, comments:
“ATS Euromaster is a great example of the sort of international corporation that has appreciated the significant cost associated with the administration & management of recruitment & talent acquisition. The replacement of their largely manual systems will allow them to make substantial savings through efficiency and productivity gains, as well as operationally, by having clear visibility of their recruitment position and requirements at any time.”
Richards concludes, “For an international player with common recruitment problems on a European or, even global basis, a hosted solution can be exceptionally cost-effective and straightforward to implement.”
