It has allowed me to streamline my job ad buying and selling process all in one dashboard.

The whole point of having an ATS is to:
  • Have a place and/or database to store all potential candidates.
  • Reporting functionality - what kind of data and reporting are you able to pull to analyze talent acquisition success?
  • Judge ease of use: no one wants to spend all of their managing a clunky system.
These are the top three areas I'm looking at in determining the right solution.

  • Integrating iCIMS with other software or departments is painful. We had a scheduled 12 week integration with iCIMS & ADP last more than 15 months.
  • Not all members of the iCIMS team share the same customer service centric attitude that the help desk and our Client Relationship Representative has.
  • The onboarding product could be improved. Currently this is done through "iFORMS" which are essentially word documents with fields that can be completed. It would be nice if the system allowed the fields to be re-formatted or have a more visually appealing look.

I would say that we are very likely to renew with iCIMS. They seem to continuously be improving their product based on the feedback from their clients. In addition, the thought have having to go through another implementation of this level is daunting and as long as the software continues to meet the business needs of the company and provides the appropriate level of support we will most likely stay. Costs regarding future renewals will also impact this decision and if necessary we will go to market to evaluate other options.

I don't use every function so I don't know what I don't know. Perhaps, the fact that I don't use every function is a veiled way of saying that it seems a bit overwhelming to master.

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.

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.

There is almost no comparison between Taleo Business Edition and iCIMS. iCIMS has a better product, that provides easier self service and a better support team when dealing with issues. Our biggest reason for leaving Taleo was because the support availability had become so poor. In order to have anything changed or addressed you had to call in, describe the issue, then it was ranked, and someone called you back in 1-5 business days. Any issue with iCIMS is typically handled on the first phone call. The more attentive customer service was the primary reason we made a switch.

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.

  • Positive - The reporting features have allowed a greater insight into applicant trends.
