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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
