Vigo

Summary:

After a recent acquisition Vigo wanted to meet to discuss their growth and how Big Red could support them in this process.

About:

Vigo Software is a privately owned Company based in the UK with trading experience of over 30 years, providing business management solutions in three categories –Transport, Mobile Workforce (in-cab), and Warehousing.

Vigo provides products to transport and logistics, warehouse operations and distribution centres, and is one of the very few software houses in the road transport sector that develops, supplies and gives technical support completely in-house.

Challenges:

The core challenge was around the technical level of developers which were speculatively being sent through and the sporadic nature in which they were being received.

Our Solution:

Big Red Recruitment add in an extra layer of qualification by meeting all candidates face to face.

We also suggested to Vigo that we provided a technical test for the candidates to complete. This really helped in the debriefing stage with the hiring manager as we were able to discuss their experience, softer skills and technical ability.

Results:

  • Built up a good relationship with HR and the hiring managers by being completely transparent
  • Successfully hired five candidates across development and support

Client's Comment:

Big Red understands our culture, our customer service standards and our ideal candidate profile and their candidate selection always fits the brief. We are happy to endorse Big Red as a professional recruiter that delivers results and saves us time by getting it right first time.
