S Release is built for the Cloud and promises the best of MaxHire, Sendouts and Bullhorn
Last week, the marketing team at Bullhorn sent Sendouts customers an email announcing the launch of S Release, the next version of Sendouts.
Built by the combined Sendouts and Bullhorn development teams, S Release works in any browser and is the fastest and most powerful ATS ever built. Our initial users of the product have already seen staggering results from S Release: a 50% increase in activity, a 25% increase in interviews, and up to a 43% increase in placements.
I would argue that the staggering statistics provided have more to do with a more intuitive platform and overall better training on the system during roll-out of the new product, rather than improvements to the back-end technology itself. However, if the new design and improved interface leads to better adoption and therefore increased use of the tool, isn't that the whole point? If anything, the numbers provided by Bullhorn may be the most concise and convincing picture to date of what can happen when recruiters actually use the full capabilities of an organization's internal ATS/CRM.
I was not happy when Bullhorn acquired Sendouts and Maxhire in November, 2012. The search functionality and integration with our existing technology wasn't an option with Bullhorn. We had actually migrated to Sendouts from Bullhorn years ago for many reasons, including some of the issues acknowledged by the Bullhorn marketing team in the email announcing the new release:
Ever since Bullhorn acquired Sendouts, I’ve been hearing from customers that Sendouts should work on a Mac and run in any browser. You’ve been telling me that Bullhorn is too expensive and you shouldn't have to pay to migrate your data. You've been telling me that we aren't communicating enough. You've been waiting for an answer from us, and now the waiting's over.
It was a long wait without answers. I am cautiously hopeful that with S Release, I may be able to be one of the few people that can say "I love my ATS"again. It was always fun to sit with a room full of recruiting leaders and be the only raised hand when that question was asked!
