Bond International Software, the specialist provider of software for the international recruitment and human resources industries, today announced a contract win with “one of Japan's leading temporary staffing agencies”, the firm said in a press release this morning.
However, Staffing Industry Analysts has not been able to verify which Japanese staffing firm Bond entered the contract with. A spokesperson told this publication that the name of the staffing firm will not be made public as it was part of the contract deal. However, she said “there are only a few” leading Japanese staffing firms in the country which considerably narrows down the list of candidates. The top three Japan-based staffing firms are Recruit, Tempstaff and Pasona Group.
Bond said that the five-year contract, worth US$4 million, will mainly provide licenses and services. It includes the development of systems and configuration to support Japanese labour law requirements.
The system will also incorporate the specialist recruitment software application Adapt Staffing including features such as front office, timesheets, and invoicing. This will manage over 1,000 recruiters across 20 offices in Japan and pay approximately 35,000 temporary staff per month.
Bond has been operating in Japan since 2009, and has worked largely with international staffing firms hence this contract win “will be the largest project with a Japanese staffing agency,” the firm said.
“This contract win is a great example of our market leading software and continued expansion across geographies. The new system also demonstrates Bond's flexibility in its products and services,” commented Chief Executive, Steve Russell.
