Who is GBA?

For more than 35 years, GBA Logistics has been focused on the safe and timely transportation of goods. Through commitment and innovation, GBA has evolved to offer logistics via land, sea and air. GBA Logistics works with customers that operate supply chains which are dependent on goods arriving on time and in perfect condition. From start to finish, GBA has the customers at heart.

How was GBA doing references before using RefNow?

Prior to RefNow, we did all the references manually. Our recruitment drive is relentless with the industry we are in.

It became impossible to manage. It took up almost every minute of every working day and was a complete nightmare!

In general, the response rate was terrible. We would be chasing candidates all day and never really hear back from them, which was completely unsustainable.

How has using RefNow helped GBA?

Our workload has decreased dramatically. Beforehand, a lot of time was spent chasing references. Since using RefNow, I spend only 2 hours per week doing it!

The increased response rate was noticeable straight away.

We were waiting on a backlog of over 200 candidates when we joined RefNow, that figure decreased almost 75% within weeks of signing up.

The automatic chasing was exactly what our team needed, as so much time has been freed up to now do other important tasks.
