Search doesn’t have to be stressful.

In 2010, we set out to improve every aspect of the boutique retained search business. Our platform—and its proprietary search project methodology—helps boutique search firms delight their clients, close projects in half the time, and maintain a steady stream of business.

From finding and winning new work to giving clients complete confidence in their candidate selection, we found a way to make it all run like Clockwork.

Hundreds of the top boutique firms manage their search projects and run their business on Clockwork.

Clockwork is a powerful database, CRM, project management software solution, and proven search methodology all rolled into one. Setup is quick and effortless, so you can be up and running within a day, managing all projects, your sales pipeline, email marketing campaigns, team and client communications—and ultimately, your business—right inside the platform.

Give clients what they want — and keep them coming back.

Clockwork’s project-focused, cloud-based platform follows a proven methodology for running and growing your business while providing a collaborative environment that makes it easy for your team and clients to work together. You’ll increase client satisfaction with improved transparency and real-time communication, while helping your team consistently deliver the best results.

Using Clockwork helps establish a strong project partnership from the outset. The client has a clear window into project progress and is therefore your partner in decision making, which in turn supports an open, honest, foundation of trust. That foundation is simply the difference between success and failure in a search.

It's changed the way I interact with clients and it's changed the way I run searches. I just fundamentally feel more organized. I can communicate with my clients in a more focused way. I also use it for marketing. Prospective clients like to hear that I offer transparency.
