The experience has been great! I was so happy to hear that my current company is also using Accurate. I know the information will come quickly and will meet the high expectations we set.

iCIMS

iCIMS is a powerful ATS which I think would work well for organizations of any size without multiple business verticals. Having multiple entities under one umbrella (or multiple umbrellas!) creates complexity in processes and requirements which can be difficult to reconcile in any system, particularly one without robust conditional logic. I wouldn't recommend iCIMS for a complex organization but I would advise that they make the initial discovery and design of their platform a high priority and take the opportunity to align processes as much as possible ahead of implementation. For a relatively straight-forward organization, it's a no-brainer - iCIMS all the way.

Pros

  • AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE OPTIONS! You can call, email, and/or chat.
  • The dashboard is very straightforward and allows for easy organization.
  • The report is super easy to read but even if you are unfamiliar there's a tour button that walks you through each section of the report to help you understand the layout.

Cons

  • There is no direct way to reach the verifications team and having customer service as a middleman sometimes adds a delay.

  • I am not happy that iCIMS recently changed their job-posting provider. They switched from TalentBrew to JobTarget. It's not as smooth, there are more clicks and steps, and I have a feeling that I'm going to start being charged for this which will make me very unhappy. I miss the ease of TalentBrew.
  • Even though their customer service is fast and great and they still do anything that I ask them to, I have noticed that over the past several months their response time has gotten a little slower. It used to be that they'd get back to me the same day and generally have my customization or problem solved in the same day. Now, it takes a few days. I've had one as long as a week. So if you are really reading this iCIMS - please know that your customer service, ability to do whatever the customer asks and respond fast sets you WAY apart from the rest. Please don't change....tighten it back up. It's still excellent and better than anyone else in the market, but I'd hate to see that slip to average.

We can think of no dissatisfaction with our daily use of iCims, involving its response time to commands or incompatibility with any other software we presently use.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate actually makes an attempt to get things verified. They do not just call 10x in one day and then close it

I have seen and used a variety of other products, and as I said in a previous answer, there is no comparison. iCIMS is the ONLY true ATS. The others are simply modules that were slapped on to round out a HRMS system, or a small product within a very large company that doesn't care at all about the tiny little ATS line of business within their portfolio.

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.

  • Better analytics and reporting has lead to better decisions around the Talent Acquisition function
  • The added use of a position management function has help management determine where there headcount is in the process of hire/fire at any given point in time.
  • an improved recruiting workflow has given our recruiters a precise view into there req load and the status of there candidates allowing them to handle more reqs with no added effort.
  • A great candidate application process has lead to less "dropped" candidates and an increase in our candidate database. This has improved our sourcing efforts dramatically.
