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.
