  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • There should be a button that the candidates have to select US CItizen or H1B Visa to help with our search because our company cannot sponsor so when I do searches, i get a lot of non US Citizens that block up the right candidates.
  • Let us send blast emails without making a folder first by just selecting the people that appear in the search.

My license for SmartSearch goes back to 2004. It has always been available for me - don't remember a single time it was not available in all of those years.

I believe that SmartSearch ATS deserves an 11 out of 10. In my experience (and I am technically competent for an English degree and published author), the overall support team at SmartSearch ATS deserves their recognition as a top support team. Even when I manage to find new and exciting technical challenges, the SmartSearch ATS team solves my problems. Their support is truly appreciated.

Follow the suggestions of the SmartSearch ATS staff during the implementation. Let them know where your pain points are in your current system. Provide SmartSearch ATS with your support during implementation so they may be effective supporting your business through the implementation. Then it is important to ask questions if you have any. Accept training. Use the system. The SmartSearch ATS staff are experts.

I love Adobe Echosign for what it is designed to do - secure signatures electronically. It's very convenient to be in one state and be able to do business nationally by getting documents and contracts signed electronically. It's so much faster than faxing or scanning used to be. And just as legal. Echosign is not competition to SmartSearch ATS though.ClearSlide is a great tool to present products or services to people via long distance. As long as both people have access to a PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet that has access to internet. It's a great way to sell long distance. ClearSlide is not competition to SmartSearch ATS though.

  • SmartSearch is great for running reports (time to fill, job report, hires by source, any many more)
  • Manages your open jobs and helps to set priorities based on open/funded, proposal efforts, or best athlete type positions
  • Tracks and manages your contacts and departments and jobs associated with each
