Vincere.io

This has been such a fantastic experience for our company, I'd recommend Vincere in a heartbeat. Fantastic service with a team who seem like they genuinely just want to help - they really seemed to care about getting us happy with their product, especially when helping us finish the data import from our old system.

I'd say it would be a good fit for a large recruitment company as the dashboards and reporting is very good. However, the low price also makes it a good option for start-ups or cost conscious firms.

Pros

  • 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.

  • You can easily use the platform to manage/monitor all the advertising campaigns which also links to our website - saving a lot of time.
  • You can incorporate all of your LinkedIn connections with Vincere and build your very own talent pool. This is great for creating distribution lists to contact your connections
  • One platform which allows you to do everything, no switching platform, everything we need in one place.
  • Customer support, Vincere has helped our team with training and supported us to use the platform to its top potential
  • Working from the UK or Europe - the speed of the platform in unrivaled.

Cons

  • I believe this stems from integration with our website, but ever since our franchisor changed the layout of our application, we have had issues with people being able to complete our application. We very recently reduced our initial application to contact information only and have seen a twofold increase in the number of completed "applications". Technological ability is not a part of the job we mainly hire for, so this has worked better for us.
  • Setting up forms on the onboarding side can be arduous, but it is done so infrequently that it's not a deterrent for us. Once you have a setup that works, you're golden. You do have to use Internet Explorer when modifying forms to be able to save changes for some reason.
  • If you don't have someone tech savvy on staff, you will need to contact ApplicantStack staff to make changes to your application. They have been very helpful for me the couple times I have needed help.

  • Integration with video interviewing platforms: not there yet but in their pipeline.
  • Whatsapp integration: would be great to be able to pull in and send out Whatsapps from the system. We have passed this feedback on to Vincere and they will see about including it in a future release.

Alternatives Considered

Applicantstack offered a high level of customization for us, at a price point their competitors couldn't touch. While it's got some room for improvement in reporting, we've been able to fill every gap with custom programming at an incredibly reasonable rate.

We came very close to signing with Bullhorn. To be fair it looks like a good system but we've heard stories from contacts of ours who have been burned by them. Also, we dealt with about 4 different salespeople during the sales cycle which didn't sit well with me. After being on our previous system for so many years we wanted to make the right choice. We also looked at Jobscience and Talent Rover but the quotations came back too high. Plus, I've used Salesforce.com before and didn't have a great experience.We were quite nervous about signing with a company that we'd never heard of - Vincere- but we felt in capable hands with the team there. It's been a really positive experience.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Simply put, the business would not be able to operate as effectively as does without a system as good as Vincere.
