Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

ApplicantPro

I would recommend this to a mid size company that is wanting to attract more candidates and allow others to get involved in the selection process. Also it is a big help for compliance in regards to hiring. We use as a stand alone product. I know they integrate well with other software but we haven't gone down that path.

  • There are not a lot of negatives. Great ATS solution with great customer support.
  • They do have a job email notification feature for potential candidates but it only sends it out periodically. It would be nice to have more control of when the emails go out.
  • The design is improving but takes some getting used to.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

These two systems are similar in that they track applicants, can store offers, automate email responses and allow easy job posting. I think that PeopleSoft is a little more advanced and has more overall options/safeguards, where as ApplicantPro is still in a learning phase both within themselves and for us as a company

  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • There have been a few times where we have been able to catch duplicate applicants or applicants that come through different sources applying to the same job.
  • We are able to keep track of all of our offer letters in one area.
  • The automation features are useful for our company.
