Leading applicant tracking system Bullhorn announced today that it has acquired candidate engagement and onboarding solutions provider Able. The acquisition will help staffing agencies “meet complex onboarding requirements, reduce candidate drop-out, and get candidates on assignment faster, all while delivering an incredible candidate onboarding experience.”
This marks Bullhorn’s third acquisition in the past six months. In July 2021, the company bought shift scheduling and workforce management solution Sirenum, and in November 202, it purchased analytics and reporting platform cube19.
Able has been a longtime Bullhorn Marketplace partner, and its products are purpose-built for use on the Bullhorn platform. The software simplifies, improves, and automates the candidate journey, and also enables recruiters to configure and automate entire onboarding workflows to the specific needs of each job.
“We’re excited to continue to enhance our capabilities in delivering an incredible candidate experience with the acquisition of Able,” said Matt Fischer, president and COO of Bullhorn. “The product is tightly integrated with Bullhorn, and we have close to 100 joint customers. Already, we’re improving the way we put the world to work everyday through a better talent experience, and we will further this investment with the addition of both Gerald Hetrick, CEO of Able, and Dustin Brewer, Chief Product Officer, who will join our leadership team focused specifically on this mission.”
