Brightmove
If you want a full-service ATS and will use the tool to post jobs and track candidates, Brightmove is a very solid tool. They are adding functionality and making it more robust. In our case, we ended up just using it for resume repository and management and so the solution essentially outgrew us such that the price structure and options are no longer competitive or make as much sense as when we first started using the tool.

Before, it was a nightmare of spreadsheets, email templates, and needless to say, many many applicants fell through the cracks or left with a bad impression of our firm due to the poor communication. With Trakstar, we're able to easily track where every applicant is in the funnel, collect information on how they are doing, and manage the whole communication process. I love being able to work in both Gmail and in their software and I love how it tracks the conversations so that I can easily go back and review where things are with any given applicant. That said, the product is more geared toward someone that is hiring for one person per role. We make it work, but there is a lot of functionality that doesn't get used because of that

Pros
Brightmove
  • Brightmove is intuitive and easy to learn and to use. It interfaces well with social media.
  • Brightmove has good capabilities to build interfaces to other systems, such as a background checking system.
  • In addition, Brightmove has a good record of being available.

  • You can create your own fully customized job board, so that you have indefinite openings for different types of jobs, and so that all interested parties can apply to meet certain openings. This is an excellent way to organize each candidate from the beginning.
  • Recruiterbox lets us program our own workflows within the platform, which are useful to better define the work organization that must be in place for all recruiting processes to meet the right requirements, and this is reflected in improved reporting.
  • The platform automatically creates analyses based on the resumes of each candidate, so that, depending on each resume, they are shown offers that are fully compatible with their type of employee and their previous work operations.
  • We like the customer service offered by Recruiterbox, which has been able to meet our employment needs in a short time and in a mostly accurate way. Thanks to this, we were able to solve the usage error we had with the platform and our current results are much more profitable in terms of analytics of recruitment operations.
  • Recruiterbox is an exemplary service in terms of usability mechanics, with an extraordinary ease of application and a deployment that allows us to work on different platforms without any usability problems or labor errors, as with most human talent services nowadays.

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.

  • The interface isn't dazzling. But it's clean. Perhaps there's some opportunity to sexy up the UI.
  • The labeling was a bit awkward, and doesn't work so cleanly when you forward a candidate to the data store, via the application email. For example, you can add the candidate manually using the web-based UI, or you can forward an application from your email client to an email alias. Also, the conversion from email-to-"creation of candidate profile" was not entirely great. But it was close enough to get the name logged in there. You just have to properly label and format the profile later, if you want the candidate repository to be well sorted and easily searchable.
  • You cannot transfer jobs from one account to another. What I mean by this is: If you have multiple organizations within a single tenant, you can move the position within that tenant. But let's say you and a colleague signed up separately, and want to merge candidate databases and job settings. It's a no go. You'll have to do a bulk import. Which kind worked out to be an imperfect migration for us.

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

We have not renewed our subscription for Recruiterbox. Although it is a great platform with great customer service, it does not have the functionality our company needs to be able to scale and there weren't plans to develop that functionality soon.

Recruiterbox is extremely easy to use and to learn. The only function that is difficult to use, even once you have the hang of the system, is reporting.

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.

Brightmove seems to be pretty similar to Vurv, but overall the functionality of the other systems I have used has been better. I didn't select to implement Brightmove, it was already in place when I joined the company.

Recruiterbox does not have as many features as other products I have used, however I would rate it very strong for ease of use. If you need something simple & out of the box, I had no complaints. I also experienced very few, if any, bugs while using the product.

Return on Investment
Brightmove
  • Positive ROI in terms of time spent by our recruiting team. Our old ATS was clunky and forced users to spend more time on mundane tasks.
  • Positive ROI in terms of connecting without outside job boards and finding job candidates.
  • Positive ROI in terms of motivating our team by seeing their numbers in an easy to understand/read dashboard.

  • By automatically managing the recruitment process, the tool frees up the working time of different employees, which is reflected in efficiency and performance in the working day.
  • The use of Recruiterbox allowed us to generate fewer expenses in paperwork or recruitment systems, which is specifically noticeable in accounting.
