Tokyo, June 6, 2023 – ZooKeep and Doublefin, the leader in headcount management solutions based out of San Jose, California are thrilled to announce their strategic partnership, aimed at modernizing how organizations plan and manage their talent. This collaboration will provide Japanese companies with unique access to a suite of innovative solutions built to supercharge their people operations.
The partnership between ZooKeep and Doublefin is a natural fit as effective headcount and people data management are tied directly to the day to day operations of internal talent teams. By combining Doublefin’s expertise in modern headcount planning and people operations workflows with ZooKeep’s deep talent acquisition platform, companies operating in Japan can finally expect improved efficiency and accuracy in managing their talent function while spending less time and money on redundant tasks.
The partnership announcement was met with enthusiasm by both teams.
“We are excited to introduce Doublefin’s solutions to our clients as we have witnessed firsthand the operational and financial impacts of poor headcount management on their operations,” said Casey Abel, CEO of ZooKeep. “By aligning internal stakeholders and creating a single source of truth, organizations can gain a clear picture of their progress against headcount plans and total spend vs. budget. Additionally, this solution enables unified data structures across multiple internal systems, reducing complexity and costs associated with data management.”
Warren Wang, Co-Founder & CEO of Doublefin, shared his vision for the collaboration, stating, “We are pleased to bring Doublefin to Japan and Asia with ZooKeep. ZooKeep’s extensive experience working with leading companies along with their deep expertise in Talent Acquisition validated the idea that key challenges in managing an organization’s most valued asset, people, knows no boundaries. We look forward to bringing our collective experience and platforms to help great companies in Japan and Asia thrive and grow intelligently.”
ZooKeep will begin rolling out Doublefin’s Headcount Management solution in Japan throughout 2023, initially to its existing customers and partners, followed by offering the solutions more broadly later in the year. Upon solidifying Doublefin’s market position in Japan, both companies intend to further expand their partnership through bundled solutions and integrations of both platforms.
