ScotGrad support Kyloe to develop market leading technology

ScotGrad Associate helps software development and consultancy, Kyloe to develop a market leading tool

Published: 13/09/2017

Orkney-based, Kyloe turned to ScotGrad when they identified the need to develop an innovative tool to help grow the company.

Kyloe is a partner of leading CRM system, Bullhorn and delivers services to Bullhorn clients all over the world from the UK and Europe to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US.

The Orkney-based business offers platform consulting and implementation services to Bullhorn clients to help them optimise the tool and drive their business forward. This includes integrating the platform with other products or Kyloe’s suite of in-house products and apps to enhance the user experience and tailor it for individual businesses.

Fiona Morgan, Company Secretary and HR Director, explained: “We had identified a specific project we wanted to deliver and our Highlands and Islands Enterprise account manager told us about ScotGrad. We already knew the value of graduates through previous student placements and had been impressed by their attitude and how quickly they learned and adapted to new technologies.

“This positive experience helped us to make the decision to expand the team through the ScotGrad programme and it allowed us to recruit someone who has fresh university thinking and the motivation to tackle any problem.”

Technical skills, enthusiasm and motivation were the key attributes required for the role and Murray Crichton was selected to join the team.

Murray focused on developing a tool which would allow Kyloe to deliver services to clients in a fraction of the time which it previously could.

Fiona explained: “Murray wasn’t inhibited by any boundaries, and had an open mind to what was possible. This helped him innovate a tool which is a market leader in the industry and which is extremely valuable to our business as it saves time, energy and risk.”

Kyloe has ambitious growth plans and the business is also committed to creating future placements to help realise their ambitions.

Fiona added: “We know the value of working with graduates who have a desire to achieve and who are not limited by boundaries. We have a long list of projects we would like to achieve and plan on recruiting graduates to help with our expansion.”
