Co-Founder & Vice President
"The Lark experience has been great thus far. We have only used it for a few months and it has out-performed my expectations in many ways. The application has provided us to work more collaboratively and improve internal communication."
Gateway Search is about identifying the best talent in the market. A preferred strategic search partner for many glocal clients looking at first-rate qualified professionals, Gateway Search is chosen for its track record of placing talents with precision, speed and success in high retention ratings. We believe through our extensive network, deep relationships across the specializations we recruit, coupled with a flexible yet robust search methodology - We are the gateway to talent.
As a boutique Human Resources agency, Gateway Search has to keep ahead of changing trends in the digital economy. The need to be agile, to be able to pivot is far more important than much larger agencies that have the benefit of scale.
In order to handle the myriad processes behind this, Gateway Search had to use a variety of disconnected tools. This led to fragmentation as stakeholders had to be proficient in a wide array of separate tools.
Another big issue was the lack of a centralized system to store, catalogue and access the vast amounts of resumes that the company had on file.
Add to this the lack of a proper attendance management system to manage employees while managers were off visiting clients and it was apparent to senior management that finding an all-on-one collaboration tool that is compatible with existing systems, scalable and simple to use was of the utmost importance.
The Lark Advantage
For Gateway Search, Lark offered a best-of-all-worlds platform that was well priced and scalable, empowering the team to do more.
Lark’s robust Drive feature created a hub for Gateway Search to make the most of the vast amounts of resumes that the company had on file, making it instantly searchable and actionable.
Lark’s core communication module became a godsend for the company, allowing the company to eschew external communication apps and instead moving all communication, internal or external, in desktop or mobile onto Lark’s unified platform.
Another key pain point, attendance management, was dealt with thanks to a variety of different people management tools available among the hundreds of apps on Lark’s in-built app store. The attendance management module is built right into Lark, be it mobile or desktop, and offers helpful bots and tracking features that are completely scalable.
The Gateway Search has been using Lark for a while now and report not only greater collaboration between teams but also in customer satisfaction.
Lark’s robust Docs system has in particular been a real winner for Gateway Search and the company has been making use of the feature in truly innovative ways to get the most out of each candidate and resume.
