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.

Lever

1. Standard Version very nice to handle all candidates and pools in a professional and structured way. 2. Enterprise Version Total process including the search and job description presentation far better than in the standard version.

Pros

  • Applicant Pro has been great for our company. The ability to push the job to several free job boards (including several local options), as well as paid services, makes Applicant Pro a great bang-for-the-buck applicant tracking system (ATS).
  • The system is user friendly, which makes it easy for hiring managers to go in and go through resumes hassle free.
  • For our recruiting team, Applicant Pro provides plenty of tools tell help us be successful, such as messaging (including a built-in texting system), facilitating background checks, and other great features.

  • Simple to learn user interface - It is easy to learn Lever very quickly. It has a modern user interface, is straight forward and is fully cloud based. Means everyone has access to the system which underlines modern working flexibility.
  • Professional Workflow and simple in adapting companies' requirements - There are possibilities to generate email templates, feedback forms, and other templates to be much quicker in terms of reacting to candidate's communication. It helps to set up a structured workflow so that candidates flow to the next stage by defining simple events. In addition, Microsoft and Google email systems and integrations are properly available now.
  • Very good and quick support - To use the integration service from Lever is really helpful and great. Every company gets a supporter who sets up the requirements with the customer. I personally appreciated the support very much because it was very kind, quick and helpful.
  • Additional tools for searching, social network integration and structured interviewing - These are additional resources which are available in the full version package which could be good but at a much higher price point.

Cons

  • There are not a lot of negatives. Great ATS solution with great customer support.
  • They do have a job email notification feature for potential candidates but it only sends it out periodically. It would be nice to have more control of when the emails go out.
  • The design is improving but takes some getting used to.

  • I wish there was more integration with DocuSign, such that we could set up more links (besides the offer letter) for new hire paperwork once the offer has been accepted.
  • The data migration process was intensive for me since we were not coming from an ATS before with a readily translated database. I agreed to manually enter information into a template they sent me so that I could have at least the 25% most recent candidates represented in my reporting/analytics (a little over 100 candidates). So when this information was not fully migrated (i.e.: the dates when someone entered and left the pipeline reflect the day of the migration despite inquiries about a fix), I was a little disappointed. The data migration was only necessary if it gave us more date for accurately reflecting statistics related to our hiring process. Since it not showing accurately, we could have started from scratch in some way.
  • I wish Lever came with some kind of demo account for each of the tiers of access. I found that it has been trial and error figuring out exactly what people can see at each tier, despite having the chart. For instance, I thought only certain emails would be blocked from the admins (i.e., any emails sent regarding the offer), but that other candidate info would still be available to them for purposes of discerning which director (admin access) would like the candidate on their team. I found a workaround of sending feedback and resumes manually, but I wish there were some access level between admin and super admin--that permitted candidates to be seen except for the few sleected emails that aresecret.

Alternatives Considered

ApplicantPro is super user friendly and pushes out to many free job sites. ApplicantPro is also easy to train managers on and the interface makes it easy to review applications quickly.

Lever was certainly more expensive than a beta test for GoogleHire, and about on par with Greenhouse. We ultimately went with Lever over Greenhouse due to its sleek, intuitive UI design. And we chose Lever over GoogleHire beta program because the latter didn't seem to provide us much more than we already had in place. It was only slightly better than the system we had cobbled together with pipeline tracking in Google Sheets, feedback forms through Google Forms, candidate communication via Gmail, and scheduling of interviews via Google Calendar

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.
  • We typically get a great flow of candidates when we post with ApplicantPro.

  • Allows us to get twice as much completed feedback forms on average as compared to prior system.
  • Saves roughly 50% of the time it would have taken with previous methods of scheduling, feedback collection, general communication, and on-boarding.
  • Has made it easier for us to make offers with its approval system, and made it easier for candidates to accept offers due to its integration with DocuSign.
