A fast-growing company with an unscalable system
Sastrify is a SaaS procurement solution, transforming the way digital-first companies discover, buy and manage their software and cloud subscriptions. By centralising information and communications, Sastrify helps hundreds of companies save millions on software and cloud costs.
Based in Spain and Germany, Sastrify’s workforce is fully remote. Or, as they like to call it, “remote-by-choice”.
Initially, Sastrify’s teams were solely based in the DACH region. But since its founding in 2020, the company has scaled both rapidly and internationally. Now, Sastrify’s 170+ employees are distributed all across EMEA, and North and Latin America.
To support the speed of expansion, Sastrify needed a solution that would maximize the efficiency of their People Operations, while putting employee experience at the forefront.
But their previous solutions did not deliver.
“We started using a provider in Germany, and soon a competitor of theirs who was able to ship Europe-wide.” Says Claudia Korenko, People Ops Manager at Sastrify.
“However, it was an extremely bad experience for both our People Ops team and employees. It created so much manual work and anger on our end, that we reached a point where we were just frustrated.”
Luckily, Claudia came across Hofy.
Combining control with automation
Since partnering with Hofy, Claudia’s equipment headaches have become a thing of the past.
“You would hear me complaining on a daily basis about our equipment issues with our previous provider. With Hofy, this simply stopped.”
This began with a smooth onboarding. Or, as Claudia sees it, the lack of onboarding - given how easy the Hofy platform is to use and navigate. “I can honestly say there was no actual onboarding phase. We simply started using Hofy without any need for assistance.”
Nowadays, the extent of Claudia’s “manual work” is deciding which Hofy Teams to add her new hires to. Her new team members are then auto-invited to order equipment from Hofy’s employee portal.
Claudia has created 8 Teams on Hofy, each with specific equipment catalogues. She’s not only created department-specific Teams (“Engineering”, “Design”), for roles that require higher spec tools. But also an “Executive” Team, to give senior leaders access to certain equipment. And “Phones” and “iPads” Teams, for employees eligible for these resources.
This set up allows Claudia to tightly control who gets what, while putting her new hires at the heart of the onboarding process.
“The platform is user-friendly for both admins and employees, which creates a great experience for our onboarding. And the process is far more efficient for us.”
Hofy has not only improved the efficiency of Sastrify’s People team. By syncing with Sastrify’s existing systems, Hofy has cut out cross-team, manual work.
“We integrate our internal IT system with Hofy, which brings a lot of benefits for our IT onboarding and IT security.”
