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.

Smashfly

I think Smashfly is more suited for high-volume requisitions where you want to contact tons of candidates at a given time. Being able to devote more time to finding profiles of qualified talent instead of reaching out individually is great. However, if a position is more niche or not as broad, I believe recruiters would have more luck personalizing each attempted contact with candidates, which could easily be done without the use of Smashfly's platform.

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.

  • Candidate Engagement - with a click of a button, recruiters can send out recruitment marketing emails to many passive candidates, which has shown an increase in our response rate.
  • Organization - Smashfly does a great job of visualizing the step-by-step process a candidate goes through during interviewing. It is great at keeping track and holding notes for specific applicants.
  • Reporting - Smashfly gives managers an in-depth look at who's getting the must bang out of their buck. They can see who's getting responses and who's not, and from there, managers can adjust accordingly.

Cons

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

  • Moving candidates through steps can seem very clunky. When I first started using the software, I was turned off because it seemed to be a little redundant.

Alternatives Considered

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

  • 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.

  • From what I've heard, recruiters have noticed a big upswing in candidate response rate, which of course, leads to increased rates of hire.
  • Some recruiters are reluctant to use smashfly because they think they're doing double effort.
