Having always set out to create a unique working environment that attracts the best employees, GÉANT undertook a detailed tendering process to evaluate fairly and transparently, the best Applicant Tracking System and CRM for their needs.

GÉANT implemented Eploy's Quick Launch recruitment platform, which is renowned for delivering a complete ATS when you need a recruitment system speedily and want to configure and adapt the solution as you grow.
