cBizSoft

cBizSoft's Exelare is very well-suited to the staffing industry. It allows for multiple contacts under a single client record. You can then enter & track all Jobs & Recruiting activity. It's fairly well suited to being a CRM as well. It does have the capability to link with ADP once you 'place' a candidate in the system. However, if you use another payroll system, you're stuck exporting reports & info to import in your payroll.

Fountain

Fountain is easy to use on the front end with recruiting as well as the back end with customization around candidate profiles and portfolio management. Recruiting and onboarding have been a game-changer since utilizing Fountain. We use text messaging to help with recruitment efforts. The reports and analytics are perfect as it shows a dashboard of all our team's efforts.

  • Great navigation and hyperlinks for all records.

Cons

cBizSoft

  • The interface is a bit clunky.
  • It would be nice to have a cloud-based version.
  • It doesn't have the ability to mass-action candidates while in the Jobs view.
  • I'd like to see the ability to create custom reports on my own.

Overall there is a ton of useful functionality in the software. Reporting is great. You can mass load & edit candidates, & almost any type of record really. You can customize a lot of the menus for your own purposes & statuses for candidates. It can be used for Sales/CRM activity too.However, the interface looks like it was built in Windows 95 or something. The fact that it's not cloud-based seems to confuse a lot of our users

Fountain

Fountain has continual upgrades and updates to help Fountain stand out against other HR platforms. It's easy to use UI helps with onboarding, recruiting, and every activity in between. There is great automation as candidates flow through the different funnels. Fountain helps us manage different applicants across different platforms in one central location.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to organize interviewing documents
  • Structure is very intuitive
