Bullhorn, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their business, and Randstad Germany, Germany's leading human resource consulting firm, have successfully partnered to improve the productivity of 2,000 consultants across 450 branches.

Bullhorn Connexys, an enterprise-level applicant tracking system and CRM built on the Salesforce platform, was chosen by Randstad Germany to improve data management and increase flexibility as part of the company's growth strategy, replacing parts of its existing SAP system.
