IBP have always maintained that, not only do you need the right people, with the right training, but you also need to furnish them with the best tools for the job.
At IBP they constantly ensure that they remain at the forefront of technology. The entire office is furnished with the latest Apple devices, this not only creates an incredibly clean and ordered workspace, but draws on the numerous advantages available by having a full roster of Apple equipment, from the large, crisp, clear displays, both at the desk and in the meeting room, allowing seamless connectivity to the team’s MacBook’s, iMac’s and iPads, allowing a smooth flow of information between departments, which in turn encourages engagement and results in no lost time using cables and memory sticks.
Contacting IBP has never been easier, either through the call tree supplied by the best in class VoIP technology, LiveChat, email, text or phone, the team are always online. So, whilst they may not always be in the office they are always able to react to the needs of your business and ensure candidates never get left out of the loop, as your future shouldn’t be limited to a 9-5 solution. IBP have definitely taken a big bite out of the Apple.
Moving on, there is no point investing in the best hardware if you do not partner it with the industry’s best software. It would be like having a fantastic car, a tantalising driver but no key to use it.
In light of this IBP have made the decision to move over to Bullhorn as their CRM provider. This decision was made after active trialling of several of the industry’s finest systems and detailed analysis of reviews from others in the market, as well as live trialling with account managers from those respective software companies. All of this has lead to IBP choosing to move forward into 2018 with Bullhorn, recognising that a CRM should not simply be a glorified database, but should in fact be a “relationship management programme,” which is their aim.
Bullhorn is not only a more comprehensive and user friendly system, it is also far more accessible, as mentioned earlier, IBP’s team are contactable anywhere, however now, they can truly work from anywhere, being able to upload jobs immediately following a meetings before even leaving a clients premises. This means that before returning to the office, IBP could already have CV’s with the client. That’s a turnaround that makes a statement.
Managing Director, Craig Roberts commented, “As someone whose background is in technology and communication, I can’t stress how important it is for my team to have the right equipment. And by enabling them, to work remotely, coupled with Bullhorn passively updating client and candidate accounts from staff communication, meaning less admin time, and more time dealing with people. It’s hard to be “Inspired By People” if you’re always buried in paperwork.”
