Bullhorn’s Dutch Operations Grows User Base by 300 Percent


Bullhorn, the cloud computing company that helps recruitment agencies and other relationship-driven organisations transform their businesses, has grown its user base across the Netherlands by 300 percent over the last year. It has also increased net new bookings by 216 percent and extended its presence into Germany since launching in the region.

Since opening the doors to its Amsterdam office in September 2016, Bullhorn has also increased its total number of customers by 86 percent and most recently signed up EPSN Workforce Group, an international recruitment company that specialises in the medical and healthcare, IT, engineering, and technical and construction sectors. Bullhorn’s other new customers in the region include The Vibe Group, Studelta, Velde Groep, Strand Associates, Morgan Green, Searchlite and Bakker & Partners.

Jeroen Tijink, Chief Growth Officer at EPSN Workforce Group, comments:

“It’s an exciting time to be in recruitment. The Netherlands is a well-established hub for highly skilled and technically proficient workers, but many CRM systems are neither flexible nor mature enough to support a fast growing recruitment company.

“We chose Bullhorn because it is the most innovative, mature, and multi-tenanted CRM available – one that can help us stay on top of our game as the wider market evolves. The recruitment experience of Bullhorn’s professional services team is also unmatched – they are undoubtedly the best partner for us!”

Pieter Duijst, EMEA Regional Sales Manager at Bullhorn and head of the Amsterdam office, adds:

“The growth of Bullhorn’s operations in the Netherlands in such a short period of time has been outstanding. We have already moved offices once to accommodate our rapidly expanding team, we’ve more than doubled our Benelux focused sales team, and we’ve partnered with many of the country’s most forward-thinking and customer-focused companies to help them achieve growth, win new clients, and place more candidates.”

Bullhorn’s international managing director, Peter Linas, concludes: “2016 was a hugely successful year for us but we’re not stopping there. Our long-term goal is to become the dominant CRM provider across mainland Europe by building our influence across the region over the next few years. 2017 has got off to a great start so watch this space!”
