Chose HubSpot CRM
I have used Fast Track, Bullhorn, Bond Adapt, and Salesforce to name a few. HubSpot is definitely the easiest to use—these other systems are complicated, clunky, and difficult to achieve standard organizational tasks.
Chose HubSpot CRM
Pipedrive was a little bit lacking and it was very simplistic as a starter package for someone who wants something other than a spreadsheet to get started. I remember features like making you have to set an additional task when you complete one, but that's not always the way …
Chose HubSpot CRM
I think HubSpot CRM is completely superior, having much more features and benefits for users.
Chose HubSpot CRM
They are much faster and quicker for the purposes that we are using it. They are more clunky and disjointed whereas HubSpot has good integrations and work flows which makes the work faster and easier for us to carry out. The automatic task creation is particularly useful in …
Chose HubSpot CRM
We found HubSpot to be far more user-friendly than it's competitors. This is one of the most appealing parts of HubSpot and ultimately why we ended up choosing HubSpot as our CRM. The free version also offers some great features which other CRMs require a paid plan for. The …
Chose HubSpot CRM
As I mentioned, Salesforce has a lot of user interface issues that I don't find with HubSpot.
Chose HubSpot CRM
Completely honest, I was not the decision maker around the transition to HubSpot. However, I am quite happy with HubSpot.
Chose HubSpot CRM
HubSpot proved to be more cost-efficient and easier to implement and customize.
Chose HubSpot CRM
SugarCRM has much more capabilities, but is far worse as far as quality goes. Bullhorn is a definite third place. HubSpot ranks best of the three in ease of use, performance, and as said before, the cost.

Bullhorn
Bullhorn served as a very reliable and thorough tracking system for contacts, discovering prospects, and maintaining track of all relevant data. There are many customization options, strong search results, and sensible workflows. Excellent reporting tool. When we needed to find new resumes but all we could find were talents who had previously been discovered, it was less appropriate. Job Boards outperformed Bull Horn in terms of speed and quality.

As I mentioned earlier, HubSpot helps organize the sales leads we contact. It makes it more accessible from the angle that we do not duplicate our work by contacting the same client by two different people. In addition, we can track the work and add reminders to follow up.

Pros
Bullhorn
  • It provides the contact details of a candidate relevant to the job. All details are with a user-friendly interface that anyone can use the application.
  • The specific details given by Bullhorn ATS & CRM are unbelievable. One place and you can make a decision about hiring or not hiring.
  • The messaging automation feature again helps to save our time.

  • Personalized email campaigns: It helps to create highly effective personalized emails with its wonderful content tokens.
  • Scheduling of meetings: It eliminates the bottlenecks in the process of meeting schedule with its amazing integrating capabilities with other calendar tools like Google calendar. It also ensures the automatic reminders of meetings to the participants of meeting.
  • Automation for follow-up : With its feature called "sequences", follow-up emails made easy.

Cons
Bullhorn
  • Reporting: out of the box reporting is not very detailed or easy to navigate. In order to get better detailed and specific reports, you either need their Canvas product or pay for a 3rd party vendor.
  • Customization: will get better with NOVO Experience update, but many users still don't have it. Right now many fields and order are not customizable
  • Many features Bullhorn can do are not apparent to the user, often times you have to call in the figure things out.

  • A lot of my companies have one URL for a ton of branches and each branch has their own name and location so I have to manually enter all the information because they all have the same URL so I can't easily use an Excel file to import those contacts so a faster solution to this would be appreciated
  • Making Corporate and branch associations is very tedious, it would be nice if the companies that all share the same url would automatically associate with the corporate company so I didn't have to manually do it
  • I would like to not see all the extra feature tabs in my layout because I am not using them so it would be nice to be able to turn them off (even the ones that are in my plan that I don't use, it would be nice to turn them off)

Bullhorn
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.

To be honest there are some barriers due to which we are unable to use Hubspot at it's full potentials. The region that we work in has some restrictions that don't allow us to make calls or text which leaves us to just Email to the client.

Usability
Bullhorn
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 think the usability is great. I am able to train a new agent with zero experience in our process with HubSpot in a day or less. They can be proficient in using HubSpot quickly, the way I've designed it to work, in less than a week. I am able to load new leads, set calling campaigns, and start prospecting quickly. I've even had to call customer service for help, and they were super helpful.

Support Rating
Bullhorn
It's been a nightmare experience. The initial sales team were brilliant, and the customer service is great from the tech team - they get in touch with you quickly. However; I was often finding workarounds myself, or being advised workarounds instead of having issues resolved (example - The DPA/Non DPA issue - an Excel spreadsheet can do this, yet a CRM cannot?). I was debited on the incorrect date & then when I requested they refund until the due date, I was re-debited again on the correct date. The communication was poor - their billing team are based in the US and there was no acknowledgement of the mistake. My initial consultant chased them down for me, and advised me of their error. Lucky. The product was oversold. For example; I was advised their 'merge docs' feature would allow me to pull data directly from the 'Overview,' 'Work Histories' which later proved to be false. Finally, when I requested to end my contract & transfer my data (I advised a specific date I needed it, when my CRM would be ready) they advised it would take 15 business days & I was to put no further data in my system during that 15 days, and then gave me my data after 3. I now have no CRM for 4 weeks

Because when I needed help HubSpot responded immediately and provided me with the information I needed which enabled me to realize that HubSpot was even more customizable and easier to use than I thought! And I already thought HubSpot was very user friendly and easy to use, and then Support showed me how to manipulate the settings, columns and the appearance of the tool.

If you've had any prior experience with cloud based marketing automation or group communication tools, you can do the implementation without paid outside support. Though getting to a SLA (service level agreement) would be best achieved with the help of a third party who can facilitate

Breathe is a great tool for smaller internal recruitment teams and I have previously used an in-house built system similar however Bullhorn is something you can use across larger businesses and growing SME's it works well for international businesses as everything is updated in real-time. The support function is excellent and the training tools for new starters are super helpful for our L&D team. Your account manager is also great for assisting in personalising sections to make them more business specific.

HubSpot is different as it allows us to see all deals as we wanted to compare to others as other apps don't have those features Hubspot has to view deals in different views and make it according to your pipelines the way you want to see the deals and data track the daily reports very easily and review our own performance for the day to grow more.

Return on Investment
Bullhorn
  • Bullhorn has helped with the standardization of data which allows us to track our high, low and in between individuals. It allows for corporate bench marks to be tracked. It also allows for a closer look at all of the data points to make decisions versus making decisions based on perceptions. The data has definitely helped us make better business decisions because of the reporting capabilities.
  • Bullhorn has some great marketplace partners and additional products like VMS Access that help with your VMS clients. This is a real time saver.

  • HubSpot is great for tracking deals - we use the deal pipeline to understand the part of the lifecycle that each and every deal is currently in. It also provides good historical information.
  • The contacts section is great for storing and managing engaged users for our mailing list. We utilise this feature with the free version.
  • The customisable dashboard is a great feature that enables you to keep the most important information on the home screen at log-in
