  • Morson is proud to have been shortlisted alongside Murphy in the Building Innovation Awards 2019

  • Our standalone end-to-end recruitment tool is shortlisted for Best Technology Partner

Morson’s standalone multi-platform recruitment intelligence tool Vencuro has been shortlisted for Best Technology Partner in conjunction with Murphy in the Building Innovation Awards 2019.

Vencuro is a bespoke talent solution platform that uses automation to seamlessly manage end-to-end tasks, while enabling complete visibility of recruitment in real time, including costs, efficiency and retention.

Engineering and construction giant Murphy utilised the technology as one of many companies facing an increasingly competitive environment from which they must recruit and retain talent. Going live in October 2018, the system worked in conjunction with their own legacy system and the two models had to be fully integrated to ensure they would work optimally together.

Through a multi-platform approach, Vencuro is helping Murphy to meet the challenges faced in their sector, while transitioning from a large supply chain to a vendor managed solution has helped to dramatically lower costs.

The winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony on the evening of Wednesday 23rd October at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.

Charlotte Lewis, head of technology for Vencuro, said:

“I’m really delighted to be shortlisted in these awards. The integration with Murphy has been a fantastic showcase of the power and flexibility of the system and it’s been great to work with the team there in delivering this service.”  

Before Vencuro was adopted by Murphy, CV filing was manual-based, meaning the management of time to hire was a lot more difficult. Vencuro has developed bespoke Dashboards, which provide detailed visual representations of KPI and hiring data, making it easier to understand at a glance the trends impacting the recruitment process.

The system prevents duplication of jobs onto different recruitment applications, relieving unnecessary admin. Over the past year, 293 jobs were added to the system with a 96% fill rate.

Mark Spiers, head of recruitment at Murphy, said: 

“Not only have we made enormous savings with Vencuro, but everyone we need at Morson is a pleasure to deal with. They understand our business and the complexities we face. Getting from A to B, for example, isn’t always a straight line and instead of shying away from issues, the team tackle whatever they face head on and embrace continuous change to mirror our operations.”

In March 2019, Vencuro was also shortlisted in the Recruiter Awards for Technological Innovation of the Year.

Currently, more than 100 clients use Vencuro with 6,000+ users. Find out more about our bespoke, single sign-on system here
