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 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.

      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

      Return on Investment

      cBizSoft

      • It went from a less expensive alternative that did most of what we wanted better than our last ATS to being just the same price as their competitors. Hard to say what our ROI would be with the product.
