Gecko Mobile Success
Originally launched in 2009, HotLizard’s Gecko platform has seen significant uptake over the past 3 years. The Gecko product range of recruitment websites and job board software includes a suite of pre-defined creative designs, all of which have gone through extensive usability testing. This off the shelf approach enables HotLizard to implement the Gecko sites quickly, without the cost associated with bespoke recruitment website or job board design.
Due to Gecko’s huge success, HotLizard has been able to invest heavily in Gecko’s ongoing product development, with new features and improvements being regularly added to the core platform. One of the more recent additions to Gecko’s feature list is a mobile version of the site. According to The Office for National Statistics, almost 50% of UK internet users are going online via a mobile phone; a trend that is growing year on year. With the number of internet users using mobile devices continuously increasing, HotLizard felt it was essential to offer a mobile site as an optional extra to a Gecko Website or Gecko Job Board .
Rather than limit Gecko’s Mobile Website to only allow registered users to search for jobs and read job descriptions like others have done, HotLizard offer a more advanced mobile website that includes the following:
- Secure Candidate Log-in
- Multiple Searching Options:
- Quick Search
- Sector Search
- Location Search
- Job Application
- Email Job Details
- Contact Us
Since the Gecko Mobile Website was launched, we have listened to our customers and have already improved the feature in line with this feedback. Gecko now detects whether the visitor is accessing the site via a handheld device and if so, they are automatically taken to the mobile version of the website.
