The Access Group, the UK’s leading providers of software to growing mid-market businesses, today announced the acquisition of Volcanic, a recruitment and staffing website software supplier with over 10 years’ experience providing software exclusively to the recruitment industry.

The acquisition of Volcanic, the leading provider of SaaS based website and marketing technology platforms for the recruitment sector, is a testament to Access’ commitment to the recruitment industry and further demonstrates its drive for innovation within the recruitment software sector.

Access already works with over 40% of the UK’s top 500 agencies and 75% of the top 20 agencies. Volcanic, which naturally extends Access’ product offering, reinforces its position as the UK’s leading recruitment software provider offering everything from candidate attraction to cash collection.

Paul Vogel, Managing Director for Access’ Recruitment Division, commentedAccess is excited to welcome Volcanic into our family. The addition of Volcanic to our solution suite further strengthens our candidate to cash proposition and our overall presence in the Recruitment market.  We look forward to deepening our relationship with Volcanic’s customers over coming months and years, while further supporting their business.”
