The Company

Best Graduates is a graduate recruitment consultancy specialising exclusively in the recruitment of newly qualified and experienced graduates into permanent positions throughout the UK.

They work with clients ranging from multinational blue chip organisations through to small to medium sized enterprises.

The Challenge

Best Graduates were using ACT as their recruitment database. They already had a basic recruitment website and were receiving hundreds of emails a day from prospective candidates. They were also getting 100's of applications to vacancies advertised through their website as they were conducting extensive advertising campaigns for their corporate clients. They received this information via email and entering the information into their existing system was taking around 4 hours a day so they needed a fully integrated solution to save time and cost and generally improve efficiency.

The Solution

Best Graduates had an Eploy demonstration which showed them how all registrations and applications go straight into their recruitment database, completely eliminating
 the 4 hours of administration time they were currently spending. Best Graduates also identified extra potential with the system to integrate it with some of their client's websites so they could provide applicant tracking services.

“Eploy was an excellent choice for us due to its capability to link with multiple websites and career portals in a way that allowed us to manage the high volume recruitment campaigns for our corporate clients”
Katie Best, Managing Director, Best Graduates Ltd

They decided to have a complete redesign of their website while integrating the Eploy recruitment features with it. The website was completely re-designed and fully integrated with Eploy within 3 weeks. Training was arranged at Best Graduate's premises and the benefits of migrating to Eploy were noticed instantly. In fact, the return on investment was apparent within the first week.

We then arranged joint presentations with Best Graduate's corporate clients who also realised the benefits of integrating their own website with Best Graduate's Eploy system to handle the applicant tracking for their graduates schemes and lower costs.

The Result

Best Graduates enjoyed a massive acceleration in growth and went on to employ a further 10 consultants to help manage their new applicant tracking and response handling service. They continued to grow and offer additional value added services to their existing clients such as assessment centres. This was all fully integrated and managed by Eploy's unique workflow engine and special web pages were added to Best Graduate's own website for their corporate clients to log in and monitor the ongoing success of their graduate recruitment campaigns.
Best Graduate's return on investment was reached in just 4 weeks and they have continued to grow and become a major player in the response handling market as well as further enhancing and improving their success in the graduate recruitment sector.

“The administration involved with communicating and tracking applications was becoming a major cost factor so our return on investment from Eploy was instant and our website is now working for us rather than creating work.

There's also no doubt that the technical expertise of the Eploy team helped us win some of our major applicant tracking contracts.”
