BrightHR is great at showing who is on holiday, who is in the office or working from home; which team and who reports to who. It is great at setting up new employees and it is very intuitive with setting the new employees up.You can add all HR documents to individual employee folders and you can give permission to those employees to view documents or you can turn that off. You can set reminders for reviews and PDRs as well as you receive reminders from Bright HR letting you know if the information is missing; for if someone needs holiday/TOIL approval.I find the fact that documents cannot be viewed in the application frustrating as sometimes I do not want to download the document to my laptop.

Freshteam is much less expensive than other ATSs - we've recently switched to Greenhouse which is more than ten times as expensive. It seems like a good starter ATS for small startups and the automation may be useful for teams without dedicated HR support. I suspect that many companies will grow out of it the way we did.

Freshteam

  • Moving interviews through each stage. It helps keep you stay organized and no one falls through the cracks.
  • Communicating with people through the Freshteam email is easy and again it helps guide interviews through the process. It also reminds you to follow up with people when they will not move forward to the next stage.

Cons

BrightHR

  • none that I can think of
Barbara Boyle | TrustRadius Reviewer

Freshteam

  • Pipeline features need to be improved so that we can map out our recruitment process onto the platform.
  • Can we get options for embedding a carrier's web page into our existing website, to show all of our published jobs?
  • Implementing a simple UI to push our job into third party websites, or an API which helps us find most known job portals.
  • We need some assessment features for various jobs, including mine, so it will also a necessary part of every recruitment application.

Alternatives Considered

BrightHR

I chose BrightHR as it offered a one-stop platform for HR management for which we have dedicated UK and ROI HR specialists who not only give HR advice but also write policies and handbooks, etc. They are a one-stop-shop, which was very important as when I signed the contract I did not have an HR person in my team and they were essentially my back office.Also, by signing up, I got access to Bright Safe too; which is great as again it's a one-stop-shop for Health and Safety in the workplace. So I can roll out toolbox talks, training, and accident management.

Zoho recruitment is also a decent product but we liked Freshteam over that just because of a few added advantages that this is giving to us, namely, we are using other products from Freshworks like Freshconnect. Secondly, Zoho does have less customer base compared to Freshworks. Hence we choose Freshworks over Zoho.

  • Increased number of interns we're able to hire which has really helped move the needle on special projects.
  • Decreased costs - we're using the free version.
