Agility sits at the heart of a product range that we’ve been designing, building and refining since 2008. Our focus has always been to create systems that enhance the experience for both client and candidate.
In a world where technology can seem like the answer, we always ask the questions that help us create technology-enhanced human systems. At the heart of every solution we provide is Quantum - our ATS system that has evolved over the last decade.
We may have evolved as a business, but at the core still sits an ATS that we believe is a keen rival to anything else on the market. It’s our approach that truly differentiates though.Read More.
Each of our solutions require some form of front-end user interface, so it’s always made sense to us to build out our own CMS – be it a page or an entire careers site.Read More.
For some clients, pro-active talent pool creation and ongoing engagement is a key part of their resourcing approach. For those clients, we have our in-house CRM.Read More.
Attraction is one thing, but bringing people on-board in the right way is equally as important. Truly engaging, unquestionably effective & efficient - and award winning.Read More.
Contractors or Contingent. Associates or Bank Staff. We’ve tailored solutions to suit client needs - from simple distinct workflows to highly evolved & involved global systems.Read More.
Everyone knows that drop-off from job board interest is always due to ATSs – right? Wrong. Drop-off is also created by the way that job boards rely on harvesting applicant data.Read More.
For many years we wondered what the fuss with CV Parsing was all about – and to be truthful, from a candidate experience perspective we still do.Read More.
There’s no questioning that in today’s internet-fuelled world, people’s expectations for accessing information when and how they want are spiralling.Read More.
Our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is by far and away the largest part of who we are and what we do. Over the years our platform has hugely evolved, but our latest iteration, Quantum, is built with 10 years’ worth of upgrades to create a fast, flexible and future-focused facility. And with agility at its core, our system has been designed to seamlessly complement other products.
We are the most reliable and agile recruitment middleware provider on the market, with an unflinching desire to deliver user focused functionality – be that the candidate, recruiter, HR or Hiring Managers. So, bring us a simple task, and we’ll delight with a swift, tailored solution that we’re confident will tick all your boxes. If you need something more end-to-end, we’re also the people who’ll find a way – never compromising on quality of the end system.
We always look to balance in-house builds of functionality with a flexible approach to integration, so whatever your HRMS or your preference for psychometric test, situational judgement evaluation, video interview or background check provider, if they can plug into other systems then we’ll certainly be able to work with them. We don’t see it as our place to dictate who you use, or to restrict you to using in-house compromise solutions, because we believe the recruitment experience of your candidates should be an extension of the ‘personal’ that you’ve spent so much time and effort shaping into your employer brand and the proposition of working for your organisation. To us, the ‘same-old-same-old’ is simply too ‘samey’ and too old.
The founding Directors worked for years in Recruitment Marketing / Communications, so it’s true to say that putting the candidate experience first is very much where they cut their teeth. Therefore it should be of little surprise that this consideration sits so front and centre in all HARBOUR executions. Whether a simple job search and apply, a portal for Contractors to manage their timesheets or OnBoarding and new starter inductions, you’ll never see a join between the pages we host and your company or careers site. And you certainly won’t see any self-promotional “powered by” nonsense. We put what’s best for our clients first EVERY time.
And whilst we take pride in every system we launch and client relationships we support, sometimes the scale of the work goes that bit beyond the high bar even we set for ourselves. Having entered such a piece of work into the RADs, we picked up the award for Best Use of Technology (2020) with New Look, which goes nicely alongside our Best Candidate Experience award we picked up in 2018 with Greater Anglia. What was most gratifying was that not only was the great result on those nights, but the executions continues to generate great recruitment results - very literally a win win
