The Client’s Challenges

The GDPR rules (that aim to protect the personal data of candidates through a wide range of data privacy and security requirements) had a tremendous impact on the HR industry.

In this context, nGAGE was looking for a GDPR-compliant HR solution able to allow the safe deployment of the recruitment processes.

At the same time, the client was facing several other challenges as overwhelming data, time and human resources consuming processes, and fierce competition.

We delivered an all-in-one GDPR-compliant HR solution (for mobile and desktop)

capable of reducing resources consumption (time, money, employees), to improve the overall management, and able to keep candidates and recruiters on the same page among the processes


nGAGE is a group of (over 20) companies from the HR industry that manages about 1 million candidates every year. The company’s main goal is to attract relevant candidates and position on the market through transparent and efficient recruitment processes.

Due to their proactive recruiting goals, they have a great pool of applicants to fulfill the extensive demand for different roles on the market.

The client’s initial need was generated by the data protection law (GDPR). They wanted to be GDPR-compliant, and they also required a solution to manage the relationship between HR and candidates better. The app was designed to solve all types of problems the client encountered before.

nGAGE became Roweb’s client as a result of a referral from another company from our portfolio.

The solution

Our smart HR solution generates added-values at multiple levels (communication, information management, usability, etc.) and for multiple-targets (candidates, recruiters, managers).

The app directly connects candidates to the HR staff (e.g., by using the chatbot) to access any needed information fast, helps candidates to find all the financial information (payments, bills) online, and to research and apply instantly for job opportunities. Furthermore, the app provides a great user experience through a modern UX interface.

The feature allows skipping over the traditional communication channels (calls, SMS) that candidates were used to getting in touch with HR staff and eases the internal and external communication process (the HR companies can quickly disseminate details to any large group of people).

“nGAGE (formerly trading as Human Capital Investment Group) have worked with Roweb for more than eighteen months and during that time have been very impressed by the high level of skill, professionalism and service that they have delivered.... Our initial engagement with Roweb entailed them taking over management of a large e-commerce web site where the previous software developers had left the code in a very poor state, system performance was very slow and many users were very unhappy. Roweb stabilised the codebase, made improvements to the user interface and delivered much needed new functionality. We are now working with them on a new version that will finally remove all of the previous developers code. Roweb have also developed new applications for us including web and Windows desktop products used by many users within our company. The location in Romania is very convenient for the UK, the level of English spoken by developers is very good and I have no hesitation in recommending Roweb as a offshore development partner.

The first one: we had to take over the internal project and deliver a smart match between what has been done already and what we wanted to implement further. The second one: the client came with additional requirements after the project proposal was previously validated, and we had to adapt to them rapidly.
