After an in-depth market evaluation, leading ANZ Tech, Digital and Business Transformation recruiter, Finite IT, eventually plumped for Microsoft Power Apps Partner of the Year Award finalist, Mercury xRM for their replacement Group CRM system.
“We’re very excited to be Mercury xRM’s Australian launch partner,” says Finite’s MD, Tracy Thomson, “bringing this new leading-edge technology ‘down-under’ from the UK and opening up a whole new chapter of amazing digital features for our recruitment teams. These include state of the art Dashboards and Analytics, full Office 365 Integration, Vacancy and Applicant Management, Workflow Automation, Onboarding and Compliance Management, LinkedIn Integration, Advanced Search Technology, and fully Mobile Recruiting.”
“Finite has been progressively moving our systems onto Microsoft’s enterprise Power Platform over the last few years. Mercury xRM’s Gold Partner status in both Application Development and Cloud Platform reflects the effort and expertise Mercury xRM’s CRM product has in leveraging Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft’s Power Platform, Office 365 and Azure, to allow Finite to deploy the very best available technology solutions for recruitment, staffing and services businesses currently available worldwide.”
This is not the first time that Finite has taken the plunge, ahead of other agencies. Finite was also the Australian launch partner back in 2008 for iProfile, another highly innovative and successful UK concept, introducing cross agency talent pooling and a host of clever candidate features.
Thomson notes “with a large database of 700,000 specialists it’s important we can identify the best candidates in the shortest possible time, Mercury xRM’s advanced search capabilities enable us to refine searches to pinpoint the most suitable candidates for our clients, saving everyone time in the process and increasing our value proposition to our clients and candidates.
We were also particularly impressed with some of the new features in their development pipeline which will take candidate networking to the next level in terms of assisting us locating multiple candidates with similar skill sets and experience, this is going to be revolutionary!”
Chris Kendrick, Mercury xRM CEO commented “Finite was an ideal launch partner for Mercury xRM in Australia, with them wanting to leverage their investment in Microsoft technology having already implemented Office 365 and Teams and looking for better integration with these tools and opportunities with LinkedIn Recruiter, Sales Navigator and Power BI. Finite’s team showed a real appetite for better technology enablement and we’re excited to introduce the new features from our product roadmap and partner integrations.”
Mercury xRM opened in Sydney in October 2019 as part of a global expansion and has since opened offices in North America in July 2020. The staffing and recruitment software specialist are a Microsoft Gold and Silver certified partner and provides services across the world to ‘leaders in market’ like Finite.
