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.

WinSearch

WinSearch works for a small recruiting company with low amounts of emails. Companies, where recruiters rely on heavy email, should avoid this due to delays and slow tech support fixes. Security and data breaches have occurred, and would negatively impact any company.

Pros

  • Allows us to involve a hiring manager or hiring committee in the selection and review process via their own logins. Easy to manage access to only the right job postings.
  • Custom (knock out) questions for each job posting. This is nice because we can get very specific as to what information we want out of an applicant. This helps in narrowing down to the final candidates.
  • Ability for teams to each rate a candidate (via 5 stars). It then takes an average which helps in selecting candidates for interviews.

  • WinSearch parses resume's biographic info into its database well.
  • WinSearch CRM database is user-friendly

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.

  • Winsearch provides email which is easily overwhelmed resulting in hangups and painfully slow searches. This is fixable with workarounds, but still not worth the wait if you seek a reliable software.
  • Winsearch is susceptible to hacks, and security issues. The system can go down for as long as a week as a result of a hack. The resulting interruption of business makes this software package not a good buy.

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

JobDiva has more functionality, and costs a bit more. I have done a demo of JobDiva, but haven't been an active user.

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.

  • WinSearch database CRM is reliable and works well. Their email system negatively impacts my business. Security breaches and hacks could last 1 week and are very harmful to customers.
