Bullhorn UK Gets Mobile

Bullhorn UK announced earlier this week a new application called SMS for Bullhorn, created by Dialogue Communications, a specialist in mobile messaging and mobile billing solutions. The solution allows UK users of Bullhorn’s recruitment software to communicate with candidates quickly and easily via text message to give jobseekers fast access to new employment opportunities. As a Bullhorn Alliance Partner, Dialogue will be the key mobile texting provider for the world-leading software.

SMS for Bullhorn enables recruiters to send text messages to individual candidates or via a broadcast facility to thousands of recipients simultaneously. Candidates can reply and all inbound and outbound messages are stored in the Bullhorn system. This allows recruiters to be in contact with candidates who do not have permanent access to email so they can gauge interest in new opportunities and receive quick responses for even faster placements.

“This development with Bullhorn has been an exciting opportunity to demonstrate our ability to work across continents. It’s a world-class solution delivered to a vertical market with a specific requirement for SMS technology”, said Dialogue Group CEO Hugh Spear. “Providing plug-in SMS extensions to market-leading applications is at the very core of what Dialogue is about, and this new solution for Bullhorn integrates directly into the existing product. This means users can send and receive SMS messages seamlessly within Bullhorn. The development is part of Dialogue’s goal of providing SMS plug-ins to cloud computing solutions in key vertical markets.”

“From the moment a recruiter logs in to their Bullhorn account, they need immediate access to all the tools that enable them to make lasting placements quickly. Mobile communication is key to keeping candidates informed of developments or new opportunities that might be of interest. We are therefore delighted to welcome Dialogue as an Alliance Partner and be the first to offer this exciting new SMS for Bullhorn application”, commented Peter Linas, Bullhorn’s UK Managing Director.

Dialogue’s SMS for Bullhorn app is available through the Bullhorn Marketplace, the broadest cloud-based application and services marketplace available to the recruitment industry. The Marketplace provides leading solutions that are tightly integrated with Bullhorn, and offer organizations the ability to choose from a range of technology resources to help them meet their unique business needs.
