At HRTech we were really impressed with a simple technology introduced by Founder Greg Moran which works on every desk in the recruiting landscape: Reference checks. Lets admit it, reference checking is a joke.

Probably the only analog part of the process in the digital world. The process is still in the stone ages, until now. offers ChequedReference an automated solution that can help the one person recruiting firm all they way up to the corporate talent aquisition teams by organizing competency based feedback from past colleagues.
Utilizing an easy to use interface ChequedReference brings the process to the cloud with a candidate driven reference set up by the hiring manager. The forms make reference checks more predictive in nature allowing for more assessment data to be gathered pre-hire. This is where ChequedFit comes into play creating a performance based sourcing tool for the recruiter and hiring manager. Allowing for a deeper screen of applicants allowing for greater focus on the qualified candidates.

Companies have been lining up from Disney, Farmers Insurance, and Subway to name a few. But the most recent growth has been in staffing firms. This may be due to the free service offering for 3 checks per month. Easy to try, and buy.

Chequed does it right. They let you try it before you buy it all. they also figured out how to keep the process fast and easy boasting over an 80% completion rate of reference checks launched. Built in Linkedin intergration allows recruiters to get profiles fast and in one place. Companies deploying the technology are boasting an average reduction in turnover by 50%.

We tried the product and love it. Go here to watch a short video and try the free demo, you will not be disappointed.
