I would recommend this to a mid size company that is wanting to attract more candidates and allow others to get involved in the selection process. Also it is a big help for compliance in regards to hiring. We use as a stand alone product. I know they integrate well with other software but we haven't gone down that path.

Frontline Recruiting & Hiring

I would say if you have a large scale operation and need to do a great deal of hiring you can not make a mistake using Frontline. In a smaller (less than 1000) organization it may be overkill, I can not say really because that is not my scenario, but in my experience, it has been very worthwhile to have our organization use it for hiring and maintaining our hiring database.

Cons

  • ApplicantPro could improve process change implementation. If you change one part of a process, it often times changes the whole thing.
  • Within the offer letter (eForm) feature, you have to restart an offer letter entirely even if you just need to edit one item - this is time consuming.
  • Sometimes the layout can be difficult to navigate/find what you're looking for - specifically on an applicant's home page.

  • It could modernize the look and feel, it is starting to look dated to me.
  • All the places that use it look the same to me as well, it should be more customizable per the company.

Alternatives Considered

We are just implementing UltiPro. It has an ATS module and does a lot of things equally well and some better. Applicant Pro is probably half the cost. Also, UltiPro requires an account with eQuest to post to state job boards and local job boards, this is an added cost. It is also an added cost with AP but is very affordable. I didn't use onboarding with applicant pro because I believe it was an integration with another vendor. UltiPro is attractive because it is all one system so the applicant information flows into onboarding which flows into employee management and payroll.

Frontline by far had the most user-friendly features, some others could do as many or close to as many things but they were not as user-friendly

Return on Investment

  • There have been a few times where we have been able to catch duplicate applicants or applicants that come through different sources applying to the same job.
  • We are able to keep track of all of our offer letters in one area.
  • The automation features are useful for our company.

  • It has made the process of posting more streamlined.
  • There is a process and we can do a cost analysis, whereas before it was hit or miss.
