Employer Branding

Professional and smooth communication with referees and customers positively affects your employer branding.



During a traditional reference check, the recruiter’s gut feeling can influence what questions he or she asks the candidate. This approach poses a risk of discriminatory questions.


Save Time

Traditional reference checking often means a cumbersome process with a lot of manual and administrative work. By using Refapp's digital reference checking solution, you significantly reduce the amount of time spent inputting data and chasing references.  This allows your team to spend more time on revenue-generating activities and onboarding new candidates. 


Intuitive and Smart

Our intuitive solution helps you to establish a digital reference checking process in a smooth step-by-step way. We have a vast library of questionnaire templates you can use straight out of the box.  You can also create your own custom-made templates based on your needs, enabling you to get started with your digital reference checking within minutes!


Automated System

By using Refapp, you can lean back and let the references answer when and how it suits them. They can choose any device to reply with and also have the option of setting up a call, using our calendar system. Everything without you having to do a thing. 

What our Customers say

Joakim Karlsson

Recruiting Manager, Lernia

We have used Refapp for a couple of years, and the tool is now a natural part of our recruitment process at Lernia. Previously, we spent several hours a day struggling to get a hold of referees. Today, we usually have responses within 24 hours. Implementing Refapp has increased our internal efficiency and enabled us to provide feedback to our candidates quicker.

Pierre Sander

CEO Jerrie

At Jerrie & Maquire, we use Refapp to digitalise our reference checking process. The tool helps us become even more efficient, and it is easier to get in touch with referees, even internationally. The referees appreciate the possibility of being able to provide their answers in writing or by a phone call at an agreed time. Our customers also appreciate the structured and professional report.

As a global company, Volvo Group Recruitment gets references from all over the world. Refapp is facilitating our reference checking in different time zones and saves us a lot of time. It is also very appreciated to submit a professional, transparent, and objective report to the Recruiting Manager!
