I think OpenHire is best for a small company (max about 2500 employees). The more employees you have the more HR people you should have and this can get expensive. I know most larger companies are using more advanced systems as well (Workday). During the selection process be sure to determine how many OpenHire users you would need. Ask whether your managers will be willing to work in the system as well or whether HR would have to own the entire process. If you are EEOC compliant, make sure you ask about diversity posting, APP tracking of applicants, and reporting needs. If you require an onboarding tool, SilkRoad offers RedCarpet. I found it to be very complex and hiring managers refused to use it. If you require an onboarding tool, definitely look into it. The demo may look great but there were a lot of implementation steps done to make it work and it just didn't fit our company culture. So make sure it fits yours.

While OpenHire has some hiccups, it works well for our needs and is very reasonably priced. I would just like to see them improve on their reporting and support

It's very self-explanatory. Sometimes it sacrifices customizability for user-friendliness, however.

The support for Silkroad is awful. I know they are working on it and it seems to be slightly better but it's still not great. I have had multiple cases I have never heard from them on, others I have had to follow-up multiple times and one that took a year

I have personally used Brass Ring, Oracle and OpenHire. Of the three OpenHire has provided to most flexible applicant management system. The customization of company specific websites separates OpenHire from the competition

  • It had a great impact to the business because prior to implementing OpenHire all recruiting was done via spreadsheet and phone calls. By implementing OpenHire we were able to track candidates more effectively, collect EEO data, schedule interviews, collect feedback and manage the entire recruiting process.
  • Having an applicant tracking system great increased our efficiency in HR by allowing everyone to know exactly where we were in the recruiting process at any time.
  • Open Hire allowed us to provide better service to our managers by routing resumes more quickly and more efficiently working through the process.
