ROIKOI Uses Online Networks for Fast, Quality Candidate ID; Steady Pipeline of Referrals for Ad and PR Agencies, Digital and Interactive Firms

ROIKOI, the innovative referral sourcing company which helps its customers collect, manage, and score employee referrals at scale, today announced its results for Intouch Solutions, a pharma marketing agency customer. ROIKOI’s referral technology helps marketing agencies, from ad agencies and PR firms to digital and Interactive shops find qualified, quality candidates for open jobs sourced from the agency’s own employees. Intouch Solutions used ROIKOI to identify nearly 4,000 referrals resulting in 625% ROI and many key hires in positions ranging from Account Supervisor to Senior Copywriter.

“Sharing results like these of Intouch Solutions is such important validation that we are doing something very right, very needed,” said Andy Wolfe, ROIKOI founder and CEO. “ROIKOI customers save thousands of dollars with each referral they hire by reducing the time spent sourcing, hiring faster, retaining employees longer and making fewer hiring mistakes. The value we bring to marketing agencies, to all customers, is why we are growing so fast, and adding new engagements every day.”

Finding and securing a qualified new hire is a $10,000 business cost, factoring in the time to source and interview a large set of candidates to net out to the right hire. ROIKOI harnesses the power of online networks to quickly, easily and effectively identify the top 7% of everyone your employees already know. The resulting candidates are gathered by a company’s existing employees simply going through their contacts just once, and quickly identify those people in their network they think would be great to work with, regardless of what job they do or if they’re looking. Then ROIKOI matches great people to open jobs so employees can make one-click referrals. And any great person who doesn’t match an open job remains a passive candidate for your sourcing team. It’s that simple.

Beyond managing employee referrals, ROIKOI has built a simple search interface that shows who does what job, and its proprietary scoring algorithm sorts candidates by talent and by fit. People naturally refer others they’ve worked with in the past to ensure an even distribution of candidates across a company’s open jobs today, and needs tomorrow. ROIKOI customers have a constant source of leads for whatever job openings they have at present, or in the future.

For Intouch Solutions, a 17 year old Kansas City-based pharma marketing agency, with offices in Chicago and New York as well, a focus on technology and digital is core to their business. ROIKOI was the forward-thinking referral technology that aligned with the Intouch business focus and helped give the agency an advantage in finding talent, an ongoing challenge for agencies always in need of good hires. ROIKOI came on board quickly, and with a simple, intuitive technology.

“HR systems tend to be really complex. ROIKOI is so intuitive that we were able to seamlessly roll it out and gather great referrals, and source from them with ease,” said Parissa Andideh, HR Manager, Intouch Solutions.

Intouch kicked off their use of ROIKOI during a series of pizza parties. There, employees logged in and easily went through their networks in 5-7 minutes. The activity resulted in instant results in proactive referrals – referrals that are proven to be over seven times more likely to be hired than applicants from job boards or sourcing. Each referral hired is a $10,000 savings, given time saved in sourcing and screening, a 10 day faster time to hire, and 2 times retention. Intouch has since added ROIKOI to its new hire onboarding process and continues to use the platform for an ongoing pipeline of qualified leads, for current job openings or future ones.

Founded in 2013, ROIKOI helps companies find more qualified candidates more easily. ROIKOI is an innovative referral sourcing platform that helps companies collect, manage, and score employee referrals at scale. ROIKOI focuses on helping growing companies keep a constant, relevant, high quality pool of candidates at the ready to fill any open job. Yes, the company is all about getting the best ROI from all the fish (KOI) in the (talent) pool. For more information, see
