CATS ATS

It has a great parsing feature and the extension is very helpful. Many ATS systems do not support parsing within LinkedIn...this one does. I was sad to see this option go when we finally transitioned. I would almost keep CATS just for the LinkedIn parsing if I knew I could easily get the information OUT of the system once it was there. A good API/webhook would be great, but sadly the API connections don't work well. Our firm also works with companies with multiple sites all across the US. There was never a way to "nest" a location with a parent company. Because of this, being able to research or report on a true client relationship was not possible. It was a very manual process.

CEIPAL ATS

CEIPAL is the best ATS system available in the market for US recruiting. It makes the job really easy for any recruiter. Its features like mail merging, job board integration and migrating of resumes on click are some of the better ones which make it best in the market against other competitors.

CEIPAL ATS

  • It can be integrated with other job portals so that it will be easy to access candidate profiles.
  • We can track our submission list and their status.
  • We can see the information about the jobs we work on and new jobs are also entered into CEIPAL. And the status of the jobs is also displayed.
  • We can also know who migrated the profile. Who viewed the profile.
  • We can send the job mails to candidates from CEIPAL.
  • We can write a note for profile and the whole organization will see it.

Cons

CATS ATS

  • I would like to see either an integration with a robust reporting tool that would allow me to design my own custom reports with a data export or more built-in reporting options.
  • Mobile app is currently mostly just a look-up tool. I would like it to have the ability to do more - add tasks, update pipelines, etc.

CEIPAL ATS

  • I would like to see domain or industry search option where we can source particular domain experience.
  • Would like to see an option where I can specify a skill with years of experience and how recently - Ex:- Java with 5 years experience and last use in 2020.

CEIPAL is very easy to understand and use. It has all the features staffing personnel would want to use at work. It is customisable. In some aspects it decreases the time and makes work easy. We can communicate with everyone in the organization using CEIPAL. It is user friendly. We can use it from anywhere.

I've had mixed results with asking for support. Sometimes they gave a quick answer and sometimes my emails were never responded to. Some responses were a single word.

This is an incredibly easy system to implement. There is no hardware or software required, it's entirely SaaS based. Compared to other systems I've implemented, it's breathtaking. Customization can all be done directly in the tool, there is no need for any involvement of consultants and most of the information you cannot figure out intuitively is covered in the knowledge base

Alternatives Considered

CATS ATS

We used to use Sendouts (prior to it being acquired by Bullhorn) - and it wasn't browser based like CATS so instead of being able to access it from a home computer, laptop, mobile phone, etc. you could only use it on the computer with the software uploaded - which is a hindrance. It also wasn't as customizable as CATS. We picked CATS because it the price was right, it was browser-based, had email-integration, and integrates with social media and job posting services to share your jobs
with the public.
Megan Carty | TrustRadius Reviewer

CEIPAL ATS

It is far cheaper and does almost the same thing that you can find in other tools. The customer service is good and they actually work to provide the best results based on our needs which is highly appreciated. You can create a hierarchy and groups and select what information you would like to show to that particular group and what you don't

Return on Investment

CATS ATS

  • We went from Excel spreadsheets to using CATS so honestly anything would be an improvement. But CATS has saved tremendous time on an on-going basis in terms of managing the career portal automatically.
  • Being able to log email conversations with the click of a button from Outlook right into CATS has been a time-saver and also has helped numerous times in providing better follow-through to candidates and providing better tracking of candidate interactions and what they have previously said (or not).
Dave Murry | TrustRadius Reviewer

CEIPAL ATS

  • So far I have used all the options in CEIPAL TalentHire and I haven't seen any negatives about this ATS.
  • New texting option launched where you can reach candidates through text messages by using desk numbers only in order to get a hold of them quickly.
  • All positives only.
