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.

This has been such a fantastic experience for our company, I'd recommend Vincere in a heartbeat. Fantastic service with a team who seem like they genuinely just want to help - they really seemed to care about getting us happy with their product, especially when helping us finish the data import from our old system.

I'd say it would be a good fit for a large recruitment company as the dashboards and reporting is very good. However, the low price also makes it a good option for start-ups or cost conscious firms.

Pros

Bullhorn

  • Inhaling resumes from Word documents - field mapping is about 80+% accurate and will check for duplicates before savings.
  • Adding notes is very easy and can be categorized based on the type of interaction it is: email, text, phone call, etc.
  • Integrations with many 3rd party vendors that are already widely used by recruiting and staffing agencies.

  • Pipeline management: the system gives a $ value for every part of the recruiting pipeline so I can accurately forecast what revenue is coming in. I've never seen this in a recruitment CRM, I believe it's quite a unique feature.
  • Price: although pricing was not the #1 criteria for me when I am choosing software, we are saving big with Vincere. I am paying $39/licence each month. This is a saving of 70% on our previous vendor yet the quality of the system is much better.
  • Search: this is probably the feature that our consultants appreciate most. The advanced search allows you to search contextually across everything in the system and really refine and drill down into the nitty gritty.

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.

  • Moving candidates and clients across the pipeline can be a bit of a pain, but you kind of get used to it.
  • Changing the names for the stages in the pipelines. In the candidate section, you're not able to customize your stages, but they said the are working on that.

Bullhorn Applicant Tracking System is user friendly for employees, which is a reason to continue use. I would explore other options due to the technical difficulties experienced.

Super intuitive. Strong leadership in the organization that cares about making a difference and unique technology. Easy to use and learn.
Functional. Makes my work easier and aids in team member collaboration. So many features that are cross finctional. And Bullhorn continues to offer more - they are obviously committed to the recruiting and sales space

They don't care, they want you off the phone, and you have to talk to multiple people where you repeat your problem again and again before they tell you they will call you back. They never will call you back, so you'll call the next day & repeat the cycle until you finally shame someone into fixing your problem or threaten them with legal action due to breach of contract.

Alternatives Considered

Bullhorn

Proconnect- a web-based tracking tool used by an organization like Randstad, they do have an extensive database. but it is a bit outdated and slow in terms of technology. RMS tracker- Extensively used in the Manufacturing Recruiting agency, I liked the tool as it saved my last few activities (Now NOVO has the same feature), really helps. But the RMS tool is tedious and slow.

The interface and the bulk-activities. Even though the others are more customizable, Vincere.io definitely gives you plenty of freedom when doing other tasks.

Return on Investment

Bullhorn

  • For a long time, we lost a lot of candidate traction due to only using Bullhorn and our website. We were not receiving as many candidates.
  • Takes a long long time to learn - streamlining processes would be nice. Could have saved the company time and used it to recruit and make more money.

  • Accountability: Vincere has helped us shift the way we manage consultants. Everyone can see what they've done inside Vincere, the system is quite transparent so even your junior consultants can see where they need to pick things up.
  • ROI was fast for us. You move from an old system to a modern platform like Vincere and it's like turning on the lights. Just having the mobile app was a revelation to us! Then you add on the dashboards, the LinkedIn integration, the constant upgrades.
  • Analytics: we used to track everything on Excel and whiteboards. We've since shifted that to the automated reporting inside Vincere.
