    Bullhorn

    For recruitment businesses there really is no better tool out there. Bullhorn ATS & CRM integrates flawlessly with other software making it less work for consultants in having lots of different tabs open at once. In addition to this, the support team are fantastic they are quick to assist in fixing issues should they arise. I accidentally deleted a lot of tasks which are essentially diary reminders and leads which upset the sales floor as you can imagine. it was a quick fix for this to be undone quickly and without issue. Day to day, adding a candidate is as easy as dragging and dropping a document in either PDF or word format. the system pics up duplicates quickly also ensuring the system is not clogged up with lots of the same information.

    It's definitely easier to use than Salesforce. It's especially great for us in the SMB market. In my opinion, it would be nice if we were able to call out to international prospects and text them as well. The SalesMessage plugin doesn't allow for that.

    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.

    • The sales funnel is one of my favorites in the entire industry.
    • Their task managing system truly helps Account Executives be on top of every lead and opportunity without dropping the ball.
    • The data tracking for KPI truly helps our team set goals and improve weekly.
    • The e-mail sequences are top tier as well.

    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.

    HubSpot

    • Price Point: Pricey Expense for Company.
    • A lot of new features are being rolled out, but intuitive additions always take 1-3 years to add on. I Recently added rescheduling/cancel to Meetings, but contacts are unable to optionally provide why they canceled/rescheduled.

      Likelihood to Renew

      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.

      Because it's integrated with HubSpot marketing platform, which is indispensable, and works simply and seamlessly with the marketing platform. The CRM is intuitive, never a time burden, and makes doing business development work a whole lot easier and enjoyable. I think at this point it's safe and fair to say we would be somewhat lost without the CRM.

      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.

      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.

      Alternatives Considered

      Bullhorn

      I am a strong believer that Bullhorn has improved nicely over the years. You do not have to be a technical guru in order to use 99.9% of the functions. It really is a one-stop shop. You are able to edit and make changes as you go to have more of a positive impact on your business needs.

      I have to admit that I prefer Salesloft, but I do think HS can be better. SL is very simple and gives me everything I need. However, in the future, I would definitely lean toward HS as it has more capabilities. I just need the integration and onboarding to be more seamless before I commit long-term.

      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.
