Avature CRM

Well suited for housing sourced candidates, pooling candidates together until you decide to do something with them.

Smashfly

SmashFly is a great tool for collecting data on candidates. It saves a tremendous amount of time with its ability to automate email campaigns. I would recommend handling the integration work on your company side so you can set-up alerts if a file fails or sftp passwords change.

Pros

Avature CRM

  • Easy and reliable "drag & drop" and email multiple candidate record creation including parsing of C.V.s
  • Workflow is very flexible and can be customized by power users themselves
  • Great Support and Training Videos

Smashfly

  • Candidate Engagement - with a click of a button, recruiters can send out recruitment marketing emails to many passive candidates, which has shown an increase in our response rate.
  • Organization - Smashfly does a great job of visualizing the step-by-step process a candidate goes through during interviewing. It is great at keeping track and holding notes for specific applicants.
  • Reporting - Smashfly gives managers an in-depth look at who's getting the must bang out of their buck. They can see who's getting responses and who's not, and from there, managers can adjust accordingly.

Cons

Avature CRM

  • Some of the better parts of the CRM system must be purchased.
  • Reporting could be easier/better, kind of cumbersome to run a report.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smashfly

  • Reporting limitations when extracting large amounts of data
  • Not user friendly for admins
  • Best to handle the integration on the company side as SmashFly is unable to alert you if things are not working properly

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

Return on Investment

Avature CRM

  • Faster time to hire
  • take the clutter out of the processes between Talent Sourcers, Talent Partners and Hiring Managers
  • customization requires some effort to get all requirements together (workflow, datasets, records etc.)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smashfly

  • 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.
