Likelihood to Recommend

Ascentis Recruiting

Ascentis Recruiting is well suited for a small company, or a company that is rolling out their very first ATS. The system is less appropriate for mid to larger sized companies; for users/companies that have had a robust ATS in the past. The system is very limited and is not user-friendly/intuitive. Customization for offer letters is difficult. The company nickel and dimes users on any additional buy-up.

Dice Open Web

Dice Open Web helped us a lot on finding candidates on niche technology like Baan ERP. We have scarcity of resources on this technology. So it would have been tougher to find it otherwise. Dice Open Web does this pretty well by searching over the web for candidates who will meet the requirements and presenting us with rich profile of the user to take informed decisions on the candidates.

And they have strong database of people which helps us choose amongst the candidates which would be best fit for our requirements
  • There are various modes in which we can connect to the candidate, the most widely used formal medium i.e. phone or email to direct connection to their social media site like twitter, facebook etc.

Cons

  • Ability to download bulk resumes individually
  • Moving candidates through the process

  • Sometimes we are bit skeptical on the authenticity of the data pulled down by the Portal. Lot of fake profiles are nowadays created by the people to attract attention. So difficult to gauge this.
  • At times, we do not get the contact numbers of the candidate if they have not posted it on public platform. It becomes then difficult to reach to them, as they do not respond to the direct messages either.

Return on Investment

  • Negative: Users do not like the system. It is not intuitive.
  • Negative: Takes a lot of time to get candidate resumes out to hiring managers if you do not have a seat purchased for all of your hiring managers. Should be saving time for an organization but it does not.
