SilkRoad Recruiting

There are so many factors that go into selecting an ATS for a talent acquisition department that it really depends. A few questions I'd ponder into would be to understand the needs of the business overall. For a smaller business, I can definitely see OpenHire being a great tool as it's kind of minimalist by nature with not a ton of expansive frills about it. For a larger company that has an international scope, I think it's a bit limiting as far as capabilities but again, so much of this is business specific that it's difficult to forecast

It was a great solution for the company in all aspects, especially the cost. The company was not in a position to afford a solution such as Oracle PeopleSoft. The only reason we did not renew OpenHire was we got acquired by a much larger organization and started utilizing the tools that the parent company had available

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
