ApplicantStack

Small to mid-size companies. Active ATS users to update candidate progress in real time. You have the option for candidates to apply through a URL, or to forward them/upload them into the ATS. Highly recommend for companies that need an ATS on a budget to manage candidates and move away from inbox management

Big Biller is well suited for pipeline maintenance and tracking. It is not as appropriate when the business is more stagnant and pipeline tracking is not necessary.

Pros

ApplicantStack

  • The reports are particularly helpful. For the first few years, I didn't use the reports simply because we transitioned from paper applications and we were still learning about the online process. Now we review them monthly to see where any inefficiencies lie.
  • We have every application that has ever been submitted to our organization in the online database. If someone reapplies, we can look back and see the reasons we didn't pursue them. This does require us to make good notes to be able to look back on, which is a good practice regardless. Sometimes we are able to take a second look at someone if it was something like limited availability that took them out of the running initially versus a personality issue.
  • Simply put, the whole premise of the site is valuable. Being able to capture applications online, when that is how most people find us, is crucial.

Cons

ApplicantStack

  • Report customization needs work, it's tough to export the data I want in a format that doesn't require extra work after an export.
  • Support is fantastic, but hard to get a hold of. Often you need to leave a message on a voicemail and get a call back.
  • There is a strong learning curve to the interface, however once you become comfortable with it.. it's very powerful.

It came down to which was easier to use. Big Biller has a very straightforward layout and clear instruction, I preferred to use it simply for that.

Return on Investment

ApplicantStack

  • We want to see more applications. Most months, it would be impractical to have all those papers on our recruiter's desk. I cannot imagine going back to paper after using ApplicantStack.

Big Biller

  • Sometimes Big Biller doesn't produce the necessary results desired but that could be because the database doesn't have enough relevant candidates.
  • Big Biller has been a good resource in finding candidates quickly and they can get back to you quickly because they get an email with a job description immediately.
  • Sometimes Big Biller doesn't have enough room to put in a lengthy Boolean search so you can't narrow down your search enough.
