Bullhorn

Bullhorn is only appropriate for staffing/recruiting agencies, or internal corporate recruiters. It is made to track jobs, candidates, placements, and is not well suited for any other scenario. Bullhorn integrates with other, more robust software for sales and leads gen, but itself is not a sales or lead gen tool. Bullhorn works best when you integrate with the other services you're already using, like your background screening vendor, phone service, or other analytics tools.

Crelate Talent

Crelate is wonderful if you just want basic candidate tracking. It does everything it needs to do on that front - let you track the stages the candidate is in, have their resume and contact info ready, as well as their current position. The extension that allows you to mine from LinkedIn is also very handy and I use it daily. It works very well. You can easily add candidates to open opportunities and if you are organized, Crelate can be really helpful. If you don't want to put in a lot of the legwork, Crelate may not be for you. There is a lot of manual work that you must do to make Crelate functional - all tagging, any information that doesn't come in through the resume or LinkedIn (and you have to double check because, like with anything, there are sometimes errors in the import). It's not a very streamlined platform and not intuitive. But as I said, if you need a basic ATS, it'll do the job.

Pros

Bullhorn

  • Organization - The layout of the Bullhorn interface is simple. This makes training new users easy and makes working in bullhorn stress-free.
  • Detail - Bullhorn allows us to enter and retrieve a great amount of detail within records. This allows for accurate reporting and follow-up.
  • Customization - Bullhorn is very customizable. We can easily add components and fields to the interface within each function of the CRM.

Crelate Talent

  • The way that all the information about a candidate is readily available at the top of their profile is great and very helpful
  • The amount of filters you can use to sort through candidates is really useful
  • The Crelate team is really responsive to inquiries and suggestions

Cons

Bullhorn

  • User Interface - Though highly customizable, the windows and popups can be quirky. The sizes of windows, for example, can sometimes be too small for the data contained and require a great deal of scrolling to navigate through.
  • Email Capability - Bullhorn would be better with a full-service email suite which included all of the functions of MS Outlook for example.
  • Data speed - We all want to work faster. Bullhorn can sometimes be a bit sluggish with the transmission of data.

Crelate Talent

  • Would be better to incorporate texting feature directly to my existing phone number, rather than use a separate system.
  • Sending calendar invites is a little hard to remember how to do - could be a bit more intuitive.
  • Need faster support - online chat would be great.
  • Click to dial works well, but would be nice to "record" the event in the contact record.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 11 answers
We have about 2 years left on our current contract; It would take a major change in the ATS marketplace for us to strongly consider opting out of renewal given the time and effort we have dedicated to building our our Bullhorn system. I will take the time to revisit with some of the competition down the road, but Bullhorn acquired our runner up, MaxHire, about a year back and continues to offer a solid product suite for our current and future needs.

It works, but not sure that it's the best/we might try out alternatives first.

Usability

Bullhorn

Bullhorn 6.1
Based on 5 answers
It isn't the best ATS out there. It lacks on both the recruitment and sales side. There is no way to differentiate between prospects, candidates, and clients. There isn't a way to merge accounts and names, so there are many duplicates. Too may paid add ons. I had a much longer review written up and the page just deleted it, but I wouldn't recommend Bullhorn first or even third. It feels like it hasn't been fully realized yet. There are certainly some good things about the product, but more areas where they can improve.

I did not have to deal directly with Bullhorn support, so I cannot fully answer this. I do know that when we had issues with Bullhorn it took quite some time to have them resolved.

Alternatives Considered

Bullhorn

Bullhorn has a complete integrated feature where it speaks with Outlook; makes parsing candidates who submit their data and resume simple. This is effective when you are running a 360 desk as it saves time and helps you focus on prospecting for clients and candidates. Often times when the software is hard to navigate through or requires many steps to complete one entry, it becomes discouraging and you're less eager to enter the data properly.

Crelate Talent

  • Easier to use, modern, supports drag and drop. Easy to set up and use. Fewer keystrokes
  • better support than zoho, not as good (but getting there) as PCR
  • Crelate is a smaller company, nimble and has ear of the customer
  • LIke ability to click and dial!

Return on Investment

Bullhorn

  • Unfortunately it's had a negative impact on our business, the on-boarding / training was spread out over 6 weeks and the initial transition to Bullhorn was 'painful'. Even now, after 4 months, I would say that we are probably worse off than when using our previous system.
  • For a system that is supposed to be one of the best (and we know is used by some very large recruitment companies), we were surprised at how poor some of the features are.
  • The support team are all very nice, but they struggle to get some things done as it's the engineering team that actually make most changes. The issue we had with the LinkedIn feature resulted in us being told that the only option was for us to take it up with LinkedIn directly, which is a bit of a joke in my opinion. The LinkedIn feature was one of the reasons we decided to go with Bullhorn, so it has caused us some frustration and annoyance.
