How have Bright Purple leveraged SourceBreaker to maximise productivity?

Originally, Bright Purple leveraged SourceBreaker to assist them in business development and the acquisition of more roles—both of which were ultimately successful.


However, they quickly recognised the adaptability of the platform as the market began changing around them and were able to utilise SourceBreaker for more candidate-focused tasks during the pandemic (when leads were easy to find) and in more recent times, as a candidate generation tool and data aggregator.

Which features are most notable for Bright Purple?

Hailed as one of their top three tech stack tools, Bright Purple see SourceBreaker for what it is — a combination of useful RecTech features to alternate between as market needs shift and evolve.


With that in mind, the most exciting features for their recruitment agency were reported to be Smart Search —for its ability to place focus on the best candidates first— and the Search Builder tool—allowing users to enter one keyword and simultaneously search for all relevant synonyms, automatically and with very little to no effort.

SourceBreaker as a solution to…

In addition to its adaptability, Bright Purple have lauded the platform’s ability to streamline and optimise various aspects of their day-to-day lives.

Shifting Market Requirements

As previously mentioned, SourceBreaker responds and caters to most recruitment needs, enabling recruiters to adapt their workflow and processes effectively and in real-time— with a suite of high-quality RecTech tools at their disposal.

Healthy Aggregation

In addition to promoting tech adoption across departments in a progressively remote world, SourceBreaker has highlighted the value of a centralised touch-point for all things candidate, lead, and market-related—from recently executed searches and generated leads to updates on placements or company funding rounds.


In fact, Bright Purple report that now everything is aggregated, there is way less training required, resources are all utilised, and results are improving exponentially.

Centralised Reporting

Before the SourceBreaker platform, recruiters at Bright Purple were having to manually log into four separate job boards to check which searches were being run. Since moving to our unified platform, the traditional time-consuming method is short-circuited, empowering their team with a much more clear and accessible view of their own recruitment efforts but also the candidate market.
