Asure Software
This is a decent tool with capabilities such as employee onboarding and recruitment assistance. Even the employee self-services have quite capable features and are unique. The areas of improvement should be employee life cycle management, leave tracking, and the benefits and compensation section could have had additional features which can be company-specific which can be customised.

I think all organizations both small and large could benefit from Symphony Talent. It is a must to have a recruitment marketing platform these days given it's a job-seekers market. It is more important today more than ever to capture and nurture leads for your organization and keep them updated on jobs and things happening related to the culture of your organization. Organizations with less than 100 people may be able to get away without it

  • Moving candidates through steps can seem very clunky. When I first started using the software, I was turned off because it seemed to be a little redundant.

I believe SmashFly does a great job supporting their system and staying involved with their clients. Everything in the system is basically a workflow so you can create them or reachout to support for help

Alternatives Considered
Asure Software
Asure's benefit came from having a dedicated account manager that could be reached via phone rather than emailing or setting up a support ticket. The user experience on the software account feels like it was built on Windows 98 and it hasn't been updated but the information is all there if you're familiar with it. We have now moved to Gusto which has an integration with our timekeeping solution Deputy. I have experience with SurePayroll which offers simple automation if employees are salaried and no input is needed.

It was like night and day. Success Factors had horrible customer service and we had very limited control over the platform. When we transitioned to SmashFly, their customer service was excellent and we had complete control over the system to make any changes we needed quickly. The technical support with SmashFly is also one of the best I've seen in the business. Their turnaround time is pretty quick when compared to others

  • From what I've heard, recruiters have noticed a big upswing in candidate response rate, which of course, leads to increased rates of hire.
  • Some recruiters are reluctant to use smashfly because they think they're doing double effort.
