We switched to 3R to streamline our Rectech Stack and have never looked back
After a poor experience with a previous supplier, the future now looks bright for Areti Group.
Discover how 3R is providing the funding and comprehensive back-office systems and personalised support that Areti needs to accelerate its growth in the UK and beyond.
London and Bristol based tech recruitment specialist, Areti, was launched in April 2022 by cofounders Pete Kelly and Luke Clarke, who had both built-up successful careers at Computer Futures and S3.
With sustainability at its core, the company prides itself on putting planet and people before profit. While its AretiDigital division is focused on connecting and scaling Product, Cloud and Software Engineering Teams, AretiForce is dedicated to accelerating the careers of talented Salesforce and FinancialForce professionals, all whilst making a positive impact on the environment.

As a fast growing and dynamic agency, Areti was keen to implement back-office tech solutions that would support its long term goals. However, working with a number of different providers, the company soon found it was struggling with an inefficient RecTech Stack that risked being a hurdle to its growth ambitions.
Unhappy with the performance, accuracy, reporting capabilities and customer service they were also receiving from existing suppliers, including a lack of responsiveness and support when there were problems, the team knew there had to be a better way.
We learnt a lot and a few hard lessons in the first year. We went quickly with some suppliers & software and it all became fragmented and disjointed. That was okay for a time but we soon noticed how it was impacting our growth and the undue stress it was also causing.
With aspirations for significant growth and wanting to push forward with its contractor recruitment arm, Areti’s objectives were clear.
The company required:
- A far slicker and more streamlined RecTech Stack that would be flexible with the changing needs of the business
- To work with a trusted partner who truly understood the market and could offer expert support and guidance on key issues, such as contractual compliance and managing risk
- Exceptional customer service and communication
Following a recommendation from an existing customer, Areti approached 3R and was so impressed that they decided to make the move.
3R were recommended to us and offered everything we were looking for. After hearing from current customers about their experiences, we decided to make the switch and it has proven to be a fantastic decision for the business.
The process of switching to a new supplier and the potential disruption this might cause was something Areti had been concerned about but thanks to 3R’s 30-day transfer process the move was seamless.
3R walked Areti through it, step-by-step, with any unexpected issues being swiftly dealt with. In addition, 3R helped with the compliant transfer of contractor and client information, and provided full training on the new system, with ongoing support provided as required.
We felt really supported and were clearly guided through the transfer process with great instructions, regular keep in touch moments and progress updates. 3R made it all very easy for us and even gave us templates and comms to support us with managing clients and contractors through the switch. It was a completely painless process.
Working with 3R, Areti now benefits from:
- The support and expertise of a trusted partner who understands all aspects of the recruitment market, including contracting and compliance.
- Processes and systems that are designed to aid growth, with reliable and real-time reporting and analytics available at the click of a button
- Back-office technology that is easy to use, visually very clear and intuitively designed
- Fast and responsive communication, giving complete peace of mind
We really value 3R’s experience and knowledge but also their responsiveness and speed of action. The back-office technology itself is really easy to use and visually very clear. The reports in the back office are also great and give us a crystal clear breakdown - saving a lot of time. All the data we need is right there, at the click of a button.
Laura also said "Senior management find functions such as the debt reports really useful, while we know our consultants love the wheel of fortune feature because it gives them greater awareness and ownership of their contractors.
What you get with 3R is a highly personal and professional service. The team are always there and happy to answer any questions, and they really know their stuff. We never have to chase them and if there is ever anything urgent that we need help with, 3R just gets it done.
Another benefit of working with 3R is the Partner Network. We have been introduced to a number of fully vetted and compliant organisations who will be invaluable as we move forward with our growth plans."
