I think Vincere.io suits any scenario that needs some order brought on board. It just lets you organize every single bit of your business. Since it is a CRM, ATS and finance platform, it lets you have everything in one.

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.

  • Out-of-the-box: they had us up and running within 6 weeks. That includes the migration of 400K resumes from our old system.
  • Integrations: works well with the systems that we are already using, like Gmail, LinkedIn, Xero.
  • Online timesheets: comes with an online timesheet and expense platform which we use to manage our contractors with. It integrates with Vincere, really easy to use. Is branded with our company logo so it looks like our own timesheet tool.
  • Candidate Portal: has a candidate portal that you can hook up to your website. We were about to pay a development company to build us something similar, then we found out Vincere provides this as part of the package.
  • Service: good customer support. Responsive, they actually listen to ideas and action them. Any small issues in the onboarding process were ironed out quickly.
  • Search: love that you can search LinkedIn and Indeed from inside Vincere.
  • Mobile app: simple, easy to use. Good if you want to write notes on a candidate between meetings or pull up a client address.
  • TV dashboard: although we are not big on KPIs here, we love the TV dashboard and have this up in our office. Gets the competition going.

  • TV Dashboard: we'd like more configuration options here. For example, we'd like to be able to see second interviews as a metric. We'd also like to be able to add sound effects- i.e., when a placement is made there is a bell sound.
  • Change colours- the UI is a kind of dark colour. I'd prefer it to be lighter.

Alternatives Considered

ApplicantStack

Customization of all aspects of the job board/posting that the candidate sees.

Bullhorn were so slow to get us a proposal that they missed the boat. Plus, the costs were just too high for us to justify. The product looks good but I had doubts about their ability to follow through with decent support as I've heard horror stories about them over promising during the sales process and then underdelivering once the contract was signed.

Zoho was a decent option for us but, ultimately, we outgrew it. We needed better analytics and the search was slooooow.

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.

  • 70% saving in subscription costs by switching to this vendor.
  • Finally we have a CRM that managers and consultants both like (and actually use!).
  • I'd estimate that posting a new job and searching, and saving a shortlist is roughly 50% faster than it previously was: the search functionality speeds the whole process up considerably.
