Avature

Avature [CRM] is a great product for those who are looking to simplify their hiring and onboarding process. If you're tired of being stressed out with the hiring process and making sure that you are bringing on someone that is a good fit then I would highly suggest giving Avature [CRM] a shot. There are so many other things it can do that will help you with the HR and onboarding side of things.

Heartland Payroll+

Because we're a small business, I can't tell if Heartland Payroll is appropriate for a larger operation. For a small business, it's like having your own HR department. You can place an ad, accept resumes, and hire directly through their Heartland Hires platform. This is perfect for a small company like ours. For a larger company, it may not be robust enough.

I never have trouble reaching customer support. They always are able to assist with fixing any problems that arise. There honestly haven't been many issues at all. Only ones I've created :)

Alternatives Considered

Avature

Avature has been a strong CRM for us as we have many recruiters, divisions and many locations. Ease of use is great as well.

I've considered moving payroll over to QuickBooks Online so that everything is in one place, but it would probably take too much work considering that our current system works really well. I think QuickBooks would confuse me, honestly. There are other systems that offer different user interfaces that are neat looking, but I haven't done too much research because Heartland Payroll offered me a really good deal for processing since we are a small company.
