About a client

Absolvent is a leading recruitment platform in Poland. It’s dedicated to students, graduates and young professionals. It was founded back in 2011 by a group of students who have noticed that there’s no reliable channel of contact between employers and young people seeking employment. The aim was clear from the beginning: Absolvent is going to connect candidates and recruiters in a professional manner, using cutting-edge technology and with careful consideration of their needs. 

Absolvent Group not only runs a platform, but also:

In just 5 years (2012-2016), the number of their clients skyrocketed from 15 to 1200, and their team grew from 2 to 60 people – now it’s over a hundred. Between 2013 and 2016, they have noticed an astounding 2279% increase in revenue. They have been using G Suite on every stage in this process. 

“Decision about using G Suite was made years ago, at the very launch of the company. No one ever complained about it. Since we started cooperation with Fly On The Cloud, we introduced an upgrade from Basic to Business – newly gained freedom and space is a huge convenience.”

G Suite vs. Microsoft 365 – which one should you choose?

Implementation

Absolvent employees have been using G Suite and Gmail from the beginning, so upgrade to Business went smoothly. Even the emergence of a new company and brand – kiwijobs.pl – wasn’t a problem. New domain, migration of mailboxes, additional accounts and upgrade were possible in a very short time thanks to a single admin with the help of Google Premier Partner.

“I’ve been thinking how to make data migration painless – Fly On The Cloud’s help was all I needed. Whenever a question popped-up in my mind, they provided me with a practical and detailed answer.”

Absolvent’s initial crew knew that expansion is just around the corner, and they needed a reliable cloud solution to stay in control when it happens.

Scalability of G Suite worked smoothly, as expected

Whenever new accounts were needed, the administrator could create them in a matter of minutes. Plus, when company’s needs exceeded a certain threshold, upgrade to a higher plan was an easy and natural way to go.

Absolvent recently introduced a new brand to the market – kiwijobs.pl. Their second recruitment platform targets potential first-line employees and helps them in search of a perfect employer. 

One G Suite control panel

G Suite panel can be used to manage several domains for a few connected companies. Absolvent isn’t afraid of growing and splitting into more relevant brands to cover all the niches that were left unexplored. 

System management for a big company should be agile, but maximally centralised. It also shouldn’t require an army of technicians for maintenance.

One admin is enough

Even with a three-digit number of office workers one administrator is sufficient. Maximal control with minimal effort is one of the things that distinguish G Suite from other similar solutions.

Information that Absolvent’s employees work with every day need special security measures. Personal information about thousands of young professionals is at stake here. 

Precise alerts

Alerts ensure that any risk of a security breach is immediately mitigated. Users of the platform and people responsible for their safety don’t have to worry – if something happens, the admin will be warned at once.

Most companies today have high cooperation needs, and Absolvent is no different in this matter. Good internal communication is essential for success in any field.

Real-time collaboration

All of the Google file editors offer employees an opportunity to consult changes and suggestions without any hassle. 

Habits vary from one employee to another and the company should strive to accommodate their individual work styles.

Desktop and mobile apps

G Suite tools make work easier for everybody. Some people like to check emails and scribble notes on the run. Others like to have both cloud and hard-drive folders available in file explorer on their laptops. Google serves solutions for both.

Occasional fieldwork in Absolvent is associated with events, conferences and concerts they organise. In those hectic periods of preparations, every minute counts and availability of tools is highly appreciated.

Mobility and availability

Full mobility of all G Suite services is important whenever one or few employees are out of office – either working remotely or tending to some event. They have constant access to all their files from anywhere in the world.

Contact with people outside the company needed to be streamlined. Absolvent balances between B2C (students and graduates) and B2B (employers). Communication with hiring companies is key for the platform’s success – their job offers attract end users.

Easy videoconferences

Video calls with Calendar and Hangouts Meet made external communication easy.  Absolvent employees can send and receive visual and acoustic information during meetings which reduces the risk of misunderstandings. Plus, anyone can dial in to a conference regardless of their familiarity with Gmail or G Suite. 

Keeping everything in check is crucial to ensure safety. Absolvent needed a way to monitor important processes from time to time.

Device and activity control

Control options in admin panel are occasionally used to verify information or to keep accounts and data safe.

Reducing the risk of phishing is one of the main security objectives in companies that operate fully digitally. Any case of identity theft could jeopardize the company’s credibility.

Two-factor authentication

Additional verification is forced on all of Absolvent’s employees as another precaution measure. Thanks to it, a hacker would need both password and access to the smartphone of an attacked individual. This makes identity theft almost impossible, so Absolvent crew members can feel secure.

Results

Convenience on a whole new level

Recruitment platform was created to simplify contact between young people and employers and to make it as convenient as possible for both parties involved. Ease of use was always one of Absolvent’s main goals – no wonder they also bet on full convenience internally. G Suite proved to be the most user-friendly solution, so they didn’t hesitate to introduce it at launch and upgrade when the opportunity came. 

Another aspect of their convenience-driven conduct of proceedings was fulfilled by cooperation with a Google Premier Partner in Poland. Fly On The Cloud provided them not only with simple benefits (invoices in PLN and contact in Polish) but also with know-how and support, which was crucial on some stages of implementation. 

The company still grows, and their cloud expands with them – no space is wasted, and yet every need is met. G Suite was Absolvent’s first and best choice.
