ApplicantPro

ApplicantPro is excellent for small and mid-sized companies that need an easy and cost-efficient way of getting their jobs posted and getting lots of applicants. It does interface with some HRIS platforms, but for most cases it may not interface with all HRIS platforms.

I think the product is well-scaled to work in both large and small companies. I'm often amazed when I learn of major organizations that are still shuffling paper or sitting on applications until they sort through all of them at once. This product allows HR to organize candidates as they submit applications and EASILY notify people (en masse) once they're out of consideration (instead of no response at all, which generates a lot of follow-up phone calls.) From the module to send emails, we simply choose the job we're sending notifications for, create a message (or use a template we've pre-built), filter candidates by the code for rejected applicants, check the box next to the candidate name, and click send. Not only is the process so easy, but the message/communication to the applicant is saved in the system (as is all communication sent out via the system.) We then archive the candidates so they're not cluttering the viable candidate lists.

Pros

  • ApplicantPro is very good at tracking applicants throughout different jobs - allowing users to copy and find applicants easily.
  • ApplicantPro makes it easy to post jobs externally through just one posting system.
  • ApplicantPro job posting is very easy - simple questions that are quick to answer and copy/paste features.

  • I think posting jobs is particularly easy, our prior system was time consuming and complicated. With iApplicants we reduced our time to post new positions from roughly 3-4 hours down to approximately 15 minutes depending on the number of sites you wanted to push the postings to.
  • The applicant screening questions were the best feature for a team with a large number of requisitions and a limited number of recruiters. This simple feature allowed us to sort through hundreds of candidates in a matter of minutes and identify the top 5-10 to forward to the hiring manager for review.
  • I like having the ability to set up access in the system for hiring managers to review candidates at their convenience. It reduces the need for active communication between the recruiter and the hiring manager regarding the status of incoming resumes.

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.

  • Tracking for the VETS-100 report was lacking as we were not allowed to include the EEO survey as a part of the EEO survey.
  • Several years ago, the dashboard could have uses some visual improvement to make it more user friendly.

It is a solid product that is easy to use and implement.

This is simply because as we expanded our business to include a staffing division, our technical needs of a tracking system greatly increased because now we needed to also track job orders, time sheets and billing. Had we simply stayed a software development company, we would have stayed with iApplicants as it fulfilled our needs at that time.

I've used this product consistently for 8 years now. In that time, I've seen ONE time that they had a technical glitch -- and THEY were all over it. The only reason I even knew about it was an email alert they sent out to all clients, explaining the issue. They also had it fixed the same day.

It works. It's easy for everyone I've shared it with -- even my not-so-tech-savvy staff. When I hired a coordinator to handle routine HR duties, this was a simple transition to hand off to someone else without a lot of training. Sometimes it's a little slow downloading documents (resumes) from the site, but that could be a combination of issues that may not be related to their product. At one time, it wasn't able to accommodate newer Word documents (.doc vs. .docx), but they fixed that, as well.

Responses are always within 24 hours. They don't nickel and dime for everything we request. I like that they understand the request and we're not caught in a flurry of emails or failed attempts. Customizations, when needed by the vendor, have been at no charge. Most modifications can be made from my administrative panel. Everyone I've dealt with at iApplicants has been positive -- there seems to be a great sense of ownership across all staff there.

I thought the training was well structured and the demos well-paced. Topics are set up sequentially so one can watch each one and build on previous tutorials. However, they are broken down into segments so a user can hone in on just a specific area where help is needed and not waste time on other topics s/he may already know. I also like the fact that the tutorials are available on the home page of the admin login, so we don't have to hunt for topics in a huge "knowledgebase." It's easy to get a quick refresher when needed (or when ready to try out something a little more advanced) and apply it immediately.

Alternatives Considered

These two systems are similar in that they track applicants, can store offers, automate email responses and allow easy job posting. I think that PeopleSoft is a little more advanced and has more overall options/safeguards, where as ApplicantPro is still in a learning phase both within themselves and for us as a company

All the systems I have listed are major systems used my large staffing organizations. iApplicants is best suited to smaller organizations with less intensive needs. The price is also better suited. I chose iApplicants because it was a better match. When we expanded and opened Blue Frog Staffing we went with Bond Adapt as it was better suited to the needs of a staffing company.

At the very basic level, it provides a place to post jobs and cross-post to free job boards. It could just be used by HR staff. However, it's more than just another place to post if one opts to utilize the full functionality-- it's an applicant management system that allows a user to pre-screen, organize, and collaborate on candidates with other users. They've added built-in background checks, reporting tools, community boards, integrated with larger/broader paid marketing opportunities, and affirmative action programs.

Return on Investment

  • ApplicantPro has given us a cost-efficient way of getting our jobs out to several free job sites and does a great job of integrating with Indeed.
