Avature CRM

It is very helpful in saving time by sending emails automatically to selected candidates.
Karen Bert | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symphony Talent, now with SmashFlyX

Symphony Talent, I believe, could benefit all organisations, large and small. Given that it is a job-market seeker these days, having a recruitment marketing platform is a must. SmashFly is an excellent tool for gathering information on prospects. It has the ability to do automatic email campaigns which saves a lot of time, effort, and resources. However, if a position is more specialist, I feel recruiters would be better off personalising each attempted contact with candidates, which could easily be done without using Smashfly's platform.

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

  • 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

Alternatives Considered

Avature CRM

The system is extremely innovative and easy to use, it permits a great deal of bolt-ins during a standard format so the system will be personalized to the company’s wants and of those who will be exploiting the system.
Karen Bert | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symphony Talent, now with SmashFlyX

Symphony Talent has great customer service compared to other platforms. Customer service at Success Factors was terrible, and we had very little control over the platform. When we switched to SmashFly, their customer support was outstanding, and we had complete control over the system, allowing us to make whatever modifications we wanted right away. Symphony has such a good career site platform and it also provides easy integration with other systems. While this is not the case on other platforms.

  • 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.
