ApplicantPro is well suited in a environment where an employer isn't hiring a ton of people - this is because ApplicantPro is built with some automation, but you do have to pay attention to each individual candidate.ApplicantPro would be less well suited for a company looking to hire a lot of people or a company where they want to post a ton of different jobs

VidCruiter

Video and live interviews built into the software has enabled us to have a more personal understanding of who the applicants are. Many of our applicants are out and about and only have internet access on an infrequent basis. The software and setup is flexible enough that we can meet their special needs also. The continued development and very responsive customer support means that we have been able to find satisfactory solutions to all our particular needs.

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.

  • As there are constant ongoing improvements and development done to make it as good as possible and to incorporate the clients specific needs, some functions may not be well documented. The very responsive support staff make up for this though through email and phone follow up whenever needed.
  • Some functions may not be supported but the development team is very responsive in working on developing solutions for the clients specific needs, which may later benefit other customers too.

This is our first season of using VidCruiter or any ATS. We are very happy with the time saved and level of organization and clarity that using VidCruiter has provided. We have a ton of ideas for improvements for the next season, and the flexibility of the system, the easy setup and maintenance and the very responsive support from VidCruiter makes this easy.

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

VidCruiter was mainly chosen due to the integrated video and live interview modules, its good looks and simple but flexible setup and good support during setup and during day to day operation.

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.

  • Much more organized and professional looking and feeling than using homemade system. Automatic and easy rating makes prioritizing the applicants easy.
  • Higher quality hires through better connection with applicants through video and live interviews.
