CATS ATS

I don't know how appropriate it'd be for large organizations with very large recruiting teams - cost per license might not make sense after a certain point. For small/medium sized businesses, it's absolutely worth a look. It's very affordable, super-easy to use, highly configurable, and set up is an breeze. Knowledge base is decent, and support is generally OK, though it's not necessarily a strength. The product team is engaged with the user community to crowdsource suggestions for updates/improvements and allows users to vote on others ideas that are appealing. Search functionality is solid and documents are instantly indexed as far as I can tell - I've never noticed any delay. It'll push postings out to various free job boards and you can customize to push out to pay boards as well. It will integrate to certain HRIS packages, so if that's of interest, making sure yours is on the supported list would be important. Data backup is super easy and would likely make changing to another ATS down the road pretty simple if the need arises.

Recruiterbox

For large companies Recruiterbox can be a software with exceptional results, allowing the application of all kinds of functions, mostly based on the execution of steps in recruitment operations with large lists of interested parties, which makes it useful in businesses such as supermarkets or services oriented to governmental management. Since it works well with emails, Recruiterbox is good for creating job interviews that do not directly require face-to-face management, as in the case of most software development jobs that are currently held. Recruiterbox is good for working in human talent departments that do not have enough experience in handling human resources software, or that are from a new business, thanks to its simplicity of use.

Pros

CATS ATS

  • Custom fields for all entities of any data type let's you track what you care about. Also customizable workflow with triggers can save a ton of time in automating processes and also ensuring steps aren't missed/established processes and protocols are adhered to.
  • Support is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and committed to resolving any issue.
  • Integrations with LinkedIn, job boards etc. is a big time saver and helps bring it all to one place.

Recruiterbox

  • There's a "social footprint" kind of feature that scrubs popular social media tools for content, and aggregates this on the candidate page for a complete view of the candidate's personal brand. That was neat.
  • The email and calendar integration was well done. Most people want simple communications (the ability to respond to a candidate from the email client on your mobile device, without the hassle of logging into a platform). The ability to discreetly communicate with the candidates, while maintaining the tags and communications thread on the candidates page was gold. It reminded me a lot of central desktop by how smartly it was executed.
  • Increasing reach by blasting the job to multiple job boards (this was included in one of the subscriptions). Great timesaver.

Cons

CATS ATS

  • Reporting has improved over the years but could still be better. It is what I would call "semi-customizable" in terms of what I can generate a report on, but would like full customization capability.
  • Mobile access is OK but not slick. Usually I don't need mobile access but every once in a while I'm out somewhere, need to grab something out of CATS and I can get it but I think there's a good opportunity to make it better.

Recruiterbox

  • Not very ergonomic design, which is a bit annoying.
  • I would like it to allow compatibility with video calling tools, allowing us to send links during the conversation.
  • It is quite annoying not to have an alphabetical order in the list of possible candidates.

Our company has been using it and enjoying the benefits for a few years now. Its a perfect system for our end goal of finding the best candidate effectively and being able to track and write reports on our progress.

We have not renewed our subscription for Recruiterbox. Although it is a great platform with great customer service, it does not have the functionality our company needs to be able to scale and there weren't plans to develop that functionality soon.

Recruiterbox is extremely easy to use and to learn. The only function that is difficult to use, even once you have the hang of the system, is reporting.

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

I find CATS ATS easier to use then Salesforce, on the recruitment side. It's hard to create pipelines like you can in CATS ATS. I, however, have used other customized ATS using Microsoft Access. I have used HRConnect which was developed by a firm I worked for using MS Access. It which was a great tracking and reporting tool. It logged calls out, calls in, length of calls, job orders, candidate submissions and tracked all the status automatically.

Recruiterbox

Recruiterbox does not have as many features as other products I have used, however I would rate it very strong for ease of use. If you need something simple & out of the box, I had no complaints. I also experienced very few, if any, bugs while using the product.

Return on Investment

CATS ATS

  • We were able to reduce the amount of time we spent posting to various job boards by more than 75%.
  • We were able to reduce the time it takes to find, engage, submit and ultimately hire candidates.
  • We were able to recoup the entire cost of the tool within less than 2 months.

Recruiterbox

  • Improved employee retention: We've seen our employee retention increase significantly over time. While a lot of this has to do with internal benefits improvements, we can also point towards our organization within Recruiterbox as helping us vet the very best of the best.
  • Internship satisfaction: We have 3 internships every quarter, and we've seen internship satisfaction increase over time.
