Brightmove

Brightmove is well suited to a large active team of recruiters. It is too expensive to be good for a smaller shop, especially if there are several users. If you are considering this product, I recommend that you ask about upgrades and improvements, "up time", what the service response is like, what new interfaces they are planning, what will be included in the next release, and how that new release will be communicated in advance

Paylocity

We have a large and complicated payroll process which we were very excited that Paylocity was equipped to handle as long as we upload our payroll correctly. It is not, however, equipped to track these complex structures within the system because bonus metrics have to be tied to the position rather than the employee. Because of this, we have to use clunky custom fields with limited functionality

Pros

Brightmove

  • Power search is a great tool to search through the resumes in the ATS.
  • It's one of the least expensive ATS options.
Chris Ammann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • It has a very cool and easy to use recognition function called impressions. Instead of a simple instant message or email saying thank you, you can offer an impression saying thanks that can be categorized and made public the rest of the company when they access Paylocity. It's just a cool function that spreads thanks and engagement across the organization with little cost and effort.
  • The self service portal for employees is easy to use as well. If you need to access vacation accrual and balances, PTO requests, pay check stubs, pay information, need to change your address or name, etc. it's very easy to find and navigate. You don't need to dig or click everywhere.
  • The journal entry function is useful too for 1:1 meetings or check in meetings for manages and their direct reports. It gives an easy module to record notes, discuss topics, attach documents, or make notes of items that need to be followed up on. Not everyone here uses it, but it does help organize meetings and keep them on track.

Cons

Brightmove

  • Brightmove could offer more detailed and user friendly reports.
  • Brightmove could add more screening questions to applicants when they are applying to a job. The feature that is already there is not really useful.
  • Brightmove needs to separate internal applicants from external applicants.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • The on-boarding area could be a bit less tedious- starting a new hire from recruit to hire is a bit tedious but you get used to it
  • The time clocks need to be hardwired to a running computer at all times- very old technology, even ADP lets us hardwire it to our network (so we do not have to rely on our clocks running on computer)

Brightmove has worked well as we are a company with 120 employees. For as long as we stay around this size, we will continue with Brightmove, but as we grow we will start looking for an ATS that can directly tie into our CRM (NetSuite). The price point is great for the functionality when compared to other ATS solutions

The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

Paylocity provides a friendly user experience with large icons on the web interface to allow ease of use. There has hardly ever been an outage on the website; the uptime is superb! Our employees provide positive feedback on their experience with using Paylocity as their time, benefits, and payroll provider.

Solid network - down for upgrades at late hours during the weekend when I am definitely not in the system to use it. Even if I was, they provide excellent advance notice.

The Customer Support is the best part of using this ATS vs others. They have a chat feature on the home page where you can ask a question and have a Customer Service rep help you in less than a minute. I have found that to be invaluable and a life saver on several occasions. I'm not sure you get that kind of service from a bigger ATS provider.

Every time I call, their security is amazing. You have to provide company ID, your name, and your employee ID# so that they know whether or not they can speak to you or give you any information. When you have a question they are always available to walk you through whatever it is you are having trouble with. If they don't have an answer, they will take your information and get back to you in a timely manner.

Alternatives Considered

Brightmove

It isn't even remotely close how much better Brightmove is compared to PCRecruiter. PCRecruiter is living in the early 90s, while Brightmove has brought recruiting and ATS software into 2018. Highly recommend it.

Paylocity

The ADP platforms did not allow us as much access to our data as Paylocity. We were constantly needing to reach out to the ADP support team to run reports or fix things within the system. With Paylocity, we have significantly more access, which leads to reduced wait times and higher efficiency. Employees have also found the self-service aspect to be leaps and bounds ahead of the prior ADP system.

Return on Investment

Brightmove

  • Our previous ATS experienced a lot of technical issues and down time which translated to lost revenue for our organization in placements and time to fill. Brightmove provided strong support if and when there was a technical support issue.
  • Our recruitment team increased their productivity by 20% within the first three months of use.
Christie McPherson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • Paylocity has permitted our company to reduce the time commitment to payroll processing and enabled our company to reduce one position in our accounting department. It has also made our Human Resources department become more effective and reduce overtime costs.
  • Paylocity's report allow for better measuring of expenses and better financial management.
  • Through Paylocity, we are better able to serve our employees with real time information and easier access to their records at their immediate disposal.
