Crelate

Crelate Talent is well suited for applicant management. It also works functionally well with other job boards and websites such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc. Crelate Talent seems to be mainly used for a mid- to large-scale business rather than a small business, for an applicant tracking system, as the management features work best with an existing candidate pool.

PCRecruiter

PCRecruiter is a great tool for staffing agencies. The ability to pull candidate info from your desktop rather than to search through file cabinets is a huge time saver. The only downside to PCRecruiter is that it could be more user-friendly and it takes some time in getting used to the features. The time it saves our recruiters definitely outweighs the Cons.

Pros

Crelate

  • The way that all the information about a candidate is readily available at the top of their profile is great and very helpful
  • The amount of filters you can use to sort through candidates is really useful
  • The Crelate team is really responsive to inquiries and suggestions
Rachel Segal-Sklar | TrustRadius Reviewer

PCRecruiter

  • All client and candidate activities are tracked and documented in one place. This makes it very easy for our team to work collaboratively. For example all email correspondence is written to client or candidate record, sales calls, follow-up, etc. are all contained in one place.
  • We like the ability to customize fields and the work flow. We have created specific data field that are relevant to some of the niche markets we work. This has allowed us to quickly slice and dice our data for marketing and recruiting campaigns.
  • The Bulk email feature is very easy to use and we incorporate it into most of our marketing and recruiting campaigns and since it is fully integrated we see all of the activity associated with the client or candidate.
  • The RSS feed of jobs has allowed us to easily integrate with social media. when a position is posted into PCR it is automatically fed to multiple social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and twitter.
  • We use the calendar and Rollup list function to organize all of our recruiting and marketing campaigns. Rollups simplify the planning part of our business.
  • The metrics reporting is great. We are in a metrics driven business and with PCR we have automated most of the reporting such as interviews/hires, attempts/presentations, presentations/ interviews, etc.

Cons

Crelate

  • Would be better to incorporate texting feature directly to my existing phone number, rather than use a separate system.
  • Sending calendar invites is a little hard to remember how to do - could be a bit more intuitive.
  • Need faster support - online chat would be great.
  • Click to dial works well, but would be nice to "record" the event in the contact record.

  • Customization - there are a few functions that do not work well with our company so if we could customize them to fit our company better, that would make PCR an even better program to utilize.
  • Updates - I don't receive too many emails in regards to updates so I will come across a few times that I cannot use PCR as I need to so it can become frustrating.
  • Alerts - if there was a function that would alert you for every inquiry, that would really help out instead of having to log in and see for yourself.

It works, but not sure that it's the best/we might try out alternatives first.

Right now, PCR is doing everything we need it to do. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our bottom-line, and PCR is getting it done leaving the work for us to implement and if we fall behind, that's on us. I am hoping PCR 9 is a big upgrade and pretty satisfied with PCR overall

I have had little to no downtime with PC Recruiter (except for planned maintenance). Whether I am using it on my laptop or the mobile versions (iPad and Android based phone), I am able to get to my information quickly and easily

Usually the Crelate support is very responsive and quick to fix any problems that arise. I've personally seen emails of the threads where Crelate support was quick to resolve problems and act courteously while doing so. While I have never called their line, it seems that their phone support is also well experienced.

I gave it this rating because I find that even though they are great support, they don't help to improve the situation because often it is out of their hands. It is that the website is down or some other issue that they can not readily fix. While helpful, I think some changes need to be made for this software to work better.

Alternatives Considered

Crelate

  • Easier to use, modern, supports drag and drop. Easy to set up and use. Fewer keystrokes
  • better support than zoho, not as good (but getting there) as PCR
  • Crelate is a smaller company, nimble and has ear of the customer
  • LIke ability to click and dial!

We used a software called CAPs before this that was antiquated in comparison. It didn't offer the same capabilities that PCR has and it saved locally on the premises so it could not easily be used from anywhere in the world. It didn't have a web scraping tool that was as useful as PCRs. It just wasn't the data powerhouse that PCR is.

Return on Investment

Crelate

  • Can more easily organize our candidates and we have a lot of info at our fingertips - this translates to quicker processes which is positive
  • We keep all our notes on Crelate - very useful for the whole team to see
  • We have multiple team members scheduling so it really helps to see all the emails that have gone out, to ensure there's no overlap
Rachel Segal-Sklar | TrustRadius Reviewer

PCRecruiter

  • Because I am a solo practitioner, with low volume recruiting, I don't use it to the fullest extent. So I'd say zero impact other than to track my information in case of discrepancies with clients.
  • There is a learning curve, so it does take away time from your day to learn the system.
  • Price is good.
