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.

iCIMS

iCIMS is worth the investment for a large corporation. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for smaller companies. It does well if you expect a high applicant flow for every role. It may not be worth the money if you only hire one or two people per year. Definitely consider the ROI when you consider this product.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

  • Lagging - sometimes iCIMS lags out, although that could be our server and not the system itself.
  • Making offers - it requires multiple steps to make an offer. You have to hit "extend offer" and then close out and reopen the offer before you can send it. Again, that could just be our setup.
  • Color scheme - okay, it's rather boring. Just black and white. I'd love to see it more customizable to where we can use our personality while using the system.

Because of the recent price increase, we are mandated to remain on the lookout for evolving and improved similar platforms that may be more cost effective over time.

We never experience outages that impact our usage. I also can't remember any recent time where there has been an error within the system that has prevented us from using the application as needed on a regular basis. If there are ever any issues, iCIMS has a customer service department that is very easy to reach.

The new update is a great improvement on the old outdated UI, but the UX still lacks some modernized and streamlined flow to it. Clunky UX makes for clunky training.

Alternatives Considered

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

Almost jumped ship when forced buy was revealed in late November. Fortunately for iCims, our research showed that iCims is the better of most competitors we reviewed.

iCims is currently pretty good and the best TAS for us at our stage of growth - but further improvement and enhancements will only help make it even better.

Return on Investment

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.
