Aug 2011 - Voyager & Saber – A unique market offering
Voyager Software remains ‘The Recruiters choice’ for Byron Finance as Voyager and Saber Analytics announce a truly unique offering to their customer base.
Paul Thompson, Director of Sales at Voyager Software, today announced, “We’ve worked extremely hard to ensure our suite of products integrates with the very best 3rd party solutions – this includes Saber’s powerful management tracking and visual display tools. Voyager has an exhaustive suite of management tools but with Saber, these statistics come alive. Whilst it is difficult to see the disappearance of the white board adorning 90% of Recruiters’ walls, why not get a virtual one projected on the wall instead – including the red board marker!
Fancy having your very own ‘placement dance video’ projected on the wall for your peers to see? Or maybe your top recruiters represented as jockeys on a horse racing towards their target? OK, so some of us may prefer simple graphical representations and find me an FD who doesn’t get all excited when presented with a broken Excel formula to crack but many recruiters have been asking us to present ‘the numbers’ in an interesting and fun way. Saber and Voyager combined offers a unique tool but just don’t take our word for it. Andrew; a customer for a number of years has some pretty statistics he’s equally happy to shout about.
“Voyager and Saber combined has made a 60% improvement in our sales activity, and has paid for itself in management time alone. Voyager and Saber now represent the technical backbone of our organisation and it’s been a great experience which has seen us stay ahead of the competition.”
“At a click of a button I can set a target for the whole business. Currently we have a monthly target on new business and cold approaches, along with CV’s submitted. Whilst I monitor the conversion ratios with the management team privately I currently have CV submissions displayed in the form of a horse race on a wall mounted plasma screen! It’s great fun and the staff love to see their names in lights – well, horses actually. It’s not all about the hard stick, things have moved on since the 90’s. Saber has a modern approach to performance management and our confidence in their ability to work with us to create meaningful and effective Management tools and KPI’s has been matched by their ability to deliver an extremely effective solution for Bryon Finance.”
“Saber and Voyager were totally confident in their ability to work and the marriage has net us significant returns. The subsequent implementation was smooth and everything we had hoped for with information flowing effectively to Saber from Voyager, from Outlook and from our telephony system has been extremely slick. They have made a very positive difference to the atmosphere on the sales floor and there are lots of music and pictures when sales are made – now there is a real buzz. Weaker months can see Saber and Voyager highlight training requirements and reassurance of a building pipeline - it’s not all about the hand slaps and bell ringing. The net result - customers benefit from our increased productivity and responsiveness."
Byron has 3 screens on the sales floor presenting live figures and statistics to the staff. The best statistic of all "sales activity is up 60% as a result of Saber and Voyager’s solution and our revenue performance is up 20%"
Tony Dandridge from Saber says: “Voyager are obviously a major player in the recruitment database world, every Voyager customer we’ve met extols their solution’s reliability, forward thinking, flexibility and most importantly, their customer focus. Our solution takes data from the front office and as such we tend to have a close relationship with the supplier; Voyager are very easy to work with and in every instance have gone over and above to put their client first.”
