A message from our founder, Rob Green.

2022 has represented a year of change, a year of challenges and a year of opportunity. 

The story of the year so far, and in essence, this is merely a continuation of a culture shift that’s been underway since the pandemic, has been digital transformation – how companies big and small are taking advantage of the explosion of digital solutions to modify existing legacy services, and operate in the digital space more efficiently, more effectively and at scale. 

This culture of digital transformation change is truly cross-industry and generationally defining. Almost every company in every industry has had to take a microscope to their digital offering and conduct an MOT on how their service could, and should, improve from a little tech tinkering.

Indeed, the hard work of digital culture change is not over, and, considering the enormous market opportunities for forward-thinking tech providers, it won’t be for several years:

  • “70% of organisations will implement structured infrastructure automation by 2025”.
  • “The U.K. digital transformation market size is expected to reach $146.63 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 22.2% from 2022 to 2030”.

Here at Rectec, we too saw an opportunity: we wanted to offer something to employers and recruitment agencies that could revolutionise how they, amid their own digital transformation, could create the perfect recruitment tech stack. 

And that “something” was two simple points of focus – identification and connection

What do we mean by identification?

I launched Rectec with a goal to create the world’s very first ATS and Recruitment CRM comparison platform, because I realised one of, if not the major barrier for companies seeking agile, relevant, affordable, and usable Applicant Tracking Systems or CRMs was identifying the right one.

So, I created Rectec Compare – a free tool that enables anyone to identify the best Recruitment CRM or Talent Acquisition technology solution for their business within (give or take!) 20 minutes…as opposed to the 6 – 8 weeks it takes on average for businesses to manually source, compare and organise a demo with the same providers.

Rectec Compare does what no other platform does – it simplifies and clarifies what you need from your ATS or CRM in the same amount of time as a short lunch break.

We also realised that ATS and Recruitment CRM providers also faced the same problem – It’s all very well having the best tech on the market…but what if no one can find you? What if your solution or product can never be identified as the right one for a new customer? 

What if you never connect with anyone?

Which leads neatly onto…

What do we mean by connection?

Anyone who works in tech understands that software, platforms, and solutions are all meaningless unless the tech connects

Connection means more than simply putting the right solution in front of the right person, although Rectec Compare does that rather perfectly! It means creating a relationship beyond the service – and that, we found, was made easier when we improved our service by connecting our users with the wider recruitment tech community. 

Enter, the Rectec Marketplace – a showcase of the best complementary recruitment technology solutions the recruitment technology market has to offer. A place in which our platform users and our website visitors too (thanks to a seamless integration with Rectec Compare), can easily connect with not only ATS providers, but companies ranging from video interviewing to referencing, onboarding, and more – all for free, and all from one place, at the click of a button!

This year we realised Rectec was more than a tool – it’s a connector of great tech providers with eager customers looking to revolutionise how they source and look after their talent. Our comparison service and marketplace help businesses identify the right solution for their needs and helps connect them with other recruitment tech providers they didn’t even know they needed. 

In our view, this is digital transformation, made real.


When combining Rectec Compare and the Rectec Marketplace, our clients are afforded the benefit of being able to identify the perfect recruitment tech stack for their business – so if you’re a recruitment tech provider who is interested in becoming a Rectec Compare or marketplace partner, please connect with me or get in touch, any time – we would love to help.
