Sirenum halfway 2018

2018: What a (Half-Year) It’s Been

Usually, first half reviews are published in the first week of July so forgive us for getting this post up a bit later than originally hoped, but frankly, we’ve been swamped!

Many software entrepreneurs are into mountaineering and it’s no wonder, building a software business is a lot like climbing a mountain: it’s difficult, requires teamwork, the summit is not always where it appears to be, and you’re always looking for the next summit.

We started the year here at Sirenum with some big mountains in mind, and looking back to our annual kickoff in January, we can already say: What a year 2018 is!

In only six months, we have added six new Sirenumites to the team, expanding the services, development and commercial teams, in a continued commitment to improving the services and products that we offer to our clients. As we had hoped and planned, Sirenum is quickly becoming the workforce management solution of choice for the largest agencies in the world, chosen by the biggest and most complex employers for our product’s flexibility and industrial strength.

Sirenum halfway 2018

Our product market leadership continues as we released a major product update with a new user interface and we have also delivered numerous new versions in the past six months. Sirenum also launched Sirenum Clock, driving innovation in the world of BYOD time and attendance capture. Also on the product front, even we have been surprised by the astonishing success of tools like F3 by Sirenum, driving down the time-to-fill to an almost unimaginable eight seconds.

In the spring, Sirenum stepped up to the big leagues by joining Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) as a corporate member. That was followed by our sponsorship of their “Collaboration in the Gig Economy” event, where we proudly earned the audience and dragons’ vote to win the Dragons’ Den competition.

Onto the corporate development front, in May we completed our first year as a member of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, alongside dozens of other leading London-based scale ups. We’ve also established and deepened partnerships with key players like Twilio, TextLocal, and 1218.

Finally, Sirenum just recently gained G-Cloud 10 certification, further demonstrating our commitment to the public sector and those business that service it.

All in all, we want to thank our team, clients, and partners for our continued growth and the amazing progress towards the next summit. We look forward to an even more exciting second half of the year! Keep climbing!

A Month To Be Thankful For: Sirenum Has Had A Global Presence This November

Sirenumites have spanned the globe this month to attend and exhibit at Dreamforce in San Francisco, Web Summit in Lisbon, and CO For It in Rotterdam

What a month! Autumn has been a great conference season for the Sirenum team, but November specifically has been full of great opportunities for us to learn from tech and staffing experts across the globe and to showcase Sirenum at some of the biggest technology events in the world.

Web Summit

Sirenum was selected to exhibit at Web Summit as a member of the exclusive BETA programme, which highlights start- and scale-ups looking to get to the next level. Enjoying the atmosphere of one of the most creative and best organised events in Europe, the Sirenum team established relationships with technology businesses from around the world, both in the Altice Arena and during several networking events in the city. And we all fell in love with Lisbon, which is a fabulous host to this annual gathering of more than 60,000. “Getting to the Web Summit has been on our radar dating back to its days in Dublin,” Joshua Pines, Sirenum co-founder said about the trip, where he was joined by Sirenumites James Ridge and Jennifer Cuetara. “But the truth is that the event was even more impressive and valuable than I expected in my wildest dreams.” Sirenum is honored to be named by Web Summit as a top 100 (#32) startup.

Dreamforce

Every autumn, San Francisco hosts the biggest Salesforce technology conference in the world. Dreamforce ’17 welcomed more than 171,000 Trailblazers from over 90 different countries, including Sirenum CEO and founder Benjamin Rubin, who had a great time representing the team while learning from the inspirational speakers and networking with other Salesforce partners. “Sirenum is very proud of its position as the leading scheduling solution in the Salesforce AppExchange,” Rubin explained, “and we’ve been going to Dreamforce since 2014 because it’s THE event for the Salesforce ecosystem.”

CO For It 17

Co For It 17 is an annual Recruitment, HR, and Technology event hosted by Connexys (now part of Bullhorn) in Rotterdam. It was a fantastic journey of inspiring keynotes, product sessions, customer cases, workshops and more. Sirenum was invited by Connexys, the leading Applicant Tracking System provider on the Salesforce platform based in Continental Europe. Rishi Kanbi, who represented Sirenum said about the event, “[I]t was great to connect with so many key players from the Continent, and the enthusiasm about Connexys and Sirenum working together was evident from everyone.”

London-based workforce management vendor announces new campaign to educate market on the benefits of improved worker engagement, streamlined scheduling, increased mobility, faster payroll processing, and expanded staff monitoring.

Birmingham, UK–Sirenum, the leading UK provider of cloud-based workforce management to the temp agency market, announced its latest educational campaign, “How to Become a Staffing Superhero.” The campaign, which launched today to coincide with the launch of the Recruitment Agency Expo in Birmingham, will highlight how innovative staffing agencies in the temp market will need to behave in the era of the gig economy.

The Staffing Superhero campaign focuses on a team of superheroes and their strengths to communicate the importance of five key areas: improved worker engagement, streamlined scheduling, increased mobility, faster payroll processing, and expanded staff monitoring.

“We talk to agencies every day. No matter the industry or size of agency, our conversations always seem to come back to these five areas,” said Benjamin Rubin, CEO and Founder of Sirenum. “So we set out to determine what we could learn from these businesses and how technology can help, and we’ve synthesised that into something they could all benefit from.”

Staffing agencies looking to learn more can visit staffingsuperhero.com and keep their eyes open for a series of white papers, webinars, and other materials to help them get the most out of their efforts to become staffing superheroes.
