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.

SmartRecruiters

If you're looking for a solid applicant tracking system, I would go with SmartRecruiters. Overall, SmartRecruiters is very reliable and I've had a great experience with it. It takes some time learning the ins and outs of it, but right now we're maximizing our use of it and we're happy with how it has helped to improve the efficiency of our department. Our number of hires has increased and we're getting new hires in for training a lot faster than before. If you're looking for a great reporting program, I would not go with SmartRecruiters. At the moment, we're manually tracking the data we want to know because SmartRecruiters does not have a strong reporting feature built into their system.

  • SmartRecruiters gives us the ability to link and share candidate information with the home office as well as with the other 157 Christian Brothers locations across the country.
  • Uploading to specific publications is a snap and the subsequent integration with the tool for uploading resumes is excellent.
  • Notifications of new candidates comes through email which enables passive monitoring even wen we do not have an active posting.

The product is very easy to use. It's simple and well put together, but flexibility for customizing is lacking.

Alternatives Considered

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

We've used a couple of different platforms in the past before settling on SmartRecruiters (I can't remember all of the names). SmartRecruiters seems to have a decent balance between costs, tools, and the amount of work required to learn and adopt the platform. Every platform has its pluses and minuses
