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

PeopleStrategy

PeopleStrategy is an excellent product if an organization is growing in the right direction and wants to improve HR processes. The software has many different packages depending on the need and can be purchased separately if something in addition is decided in the future. This is a benefit because not all organizations may need all features right away.

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

PeopleStrategy

  • It was easy to navigate
  • Easy to read
  • Document upload was very easy and quick
  • User Access was really easy to manager and reset passwords.
Erin Tucker | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

  • Certain functions cannot be integrated unless you have purchase that specific package

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 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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

ADP and Oracle are systems I have used and the GUI of Oracle even as antiquated as it is was vastly more efficient to work with than the people as well as system that PeopleStrategy claimed to be supporting. I didn't have any part in the selection of this system as it was in place before I was part of the team. We promptly began looking into all in one systems so that we could convert to a better experience for us as administrators and for the employees and their use. We ulitmatelt converted to ADP this year and even though the process was not as seemless as promised I would still take this process over using PeopleStrategy any time.

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.

PeopleStrategy

  • PeopleStrategy has reduced errors and paper waste
  • Since using PeopleStrategy, we've maximized our time and streamlined processes
  • Through PeopleStrategy's services, our business has increased employee retention
