Halcyon Knights Delivers Business Transformation Using Vincere, the Disruptive SaaS for Recruiters

Halcyon Knights Delivers Business Transformation Using Vincere

Vincere announced that they recently welcomed Australia’s largest dedicated technology recruitment practice, Halcyon Knights, as a new customer to their fast-growing roster of customers.

HQ’d in Melbourne, Australia, the IT specialist recruitment company has been delivering outstanding recruitment services to clients and candidates since 2007. Halcyon Knights today operates across 5 offices throughout the APAC region in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Auckland and Singapore. In both 2016 and 2017, Halcyon was awarded 'Australia's Most Socially Engaged Enterprise Staffing Agency' by LinkedIn.

Before implementing Vincere, Halcyon Knights was stuck on a big-name CRM system that didn’t have the level of functionality needed to support their ongoing growth. As a result, the Management Team lacked the visibility and grip on numbers they needed to fine-tune business performance for further expansion.

"Halcyon Knights has always been at the forefront in adopting new technologies. We believe in investing in best-in-class technology and sales enablement tools. A good staffing ATS should help us work smarter, not harder," remarked Leah Wigg, Head of Sales & Marketing Effectiveness at Halcyon.

"We were looking for a new ATS that could automate key aspects of time-consuming and inefficient recruiting workflows so the team's time can be better spent on what they do best: making placements. I’m delighted we found a solution in Vincere's all-in-one recruitment platform. This is game-changing for our business strategy and how we get work done."

After a comprehensive multi-stage evaluation of 10+ recruitment systems on the market Halcyon eventually chose Vincere as their recruitment partner.

Leah continued, “We really like that Vincere is customer-centric. They are different. They’ve taken the typical vendor <> recruiter relationship and flipped it into what feels like a genuine partnership. Right from the sales process to data migration, training and onboarding, the team at Vincere took an actual interest in our business. They ‘get’ it, they ‘get’ us.’"

Commenting on the partnership, Eloise Sutton-Kirkby, Director of Growth at Vincere said, “We are proud to announce Halcyon Knights as our customer and share their success story. In many ways, Halcyon Knights are the perfect Vincere customer: they have a healthy mix of perm, contract and search, they are well-established in Australia but are expanding internationally and have a clear desire to optimise processes by using best-in-breed SaaS. Making the switch to a brand new system is a daunting enterprise for many recruitment firms, however the professionalism with which Halcyon Knights have approached this business transformation has made for a smooth transition. We’re very much looking forward to partnering with Halcyon Knights over the years to come.”

Vincere just dropped their third major software release of 2018 a week ago. Dubbed the ‘Omni’ release, this highly anticipated update includes timesheet-based Invoicing, Contract Renewal Management and upgrades to TimeTemp: their time-clocking, leave and attendance tracking module.
