Symphony Talent

Symphony Talent, I believe, could benefit all organisations, large and small. Given that it is a job-market seeker these days, having a recruitment marketing platform is a must. SmashFly is an excellent tool for gathering information on prospects. It has the ability to do automatic email campaigns which saves a lot of time, effort, and resources. However, if a position is more specialist, I feel recruiters would be better off personalising each attempted contact with candidates, which could easily be done without using Smashfly's platform.

Cons

Crelate, Inc.

  • Interface isn't great - there's a lot of clicking around required that I wish was streamlined
  • This isn't a self-explanatory platform - you have to dig around a while before you figure out how to use some features, like the filtering of contacts, for example. There's a place that you'd think you filter, but that actually changes the contacts list instead.
  • It often crashes and you have to sign out and sign back in for it to work again.

Symphony Talent

  • Reporting limitations when extracting large amounts of data
  • Not user friendly for admins
  • Best to handle the integration on the company side as SmashFly is unable to alert you if things are not working properly

    Support Rating

    Crelate, Inc.

    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 believe SmashFly does a great job supporting their system and staying involved with their clients. Everything in the system is basically a workflow so you can create them or reachout to support for help

    Alternatives Considered

    Crelate, Inc.

    • 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!

    Symphony Talent

    Symphony Talent has great customer service compared to other platforms. Customer service at Success Factors was terrible, and we had very little control over the platform. When we switched to SmashFly, their customer support was outstanding, and we had complete control over the system, allowing us to make whatever modifications we wanted right away. Symphony has such a good career site platform and it also provides easy integration with other systems. While this is not the case on other platforms.

    Return on Investment

    Crelate, Inc.

    • Crelate has allowed me to customize my recruiting process for business development. This will be a great ROI moving forward.
    • Crelate links all candidates to the company that they work for. This is extremely important to quickly identify profiles in the database with the companies that they work for. Sounds simple but very important!
    • Quickly interfaces with LinkedIn to important candidates. This makes importing candidates quick and easy!

    Symphony Talent

    • From what I've heard, recruiters have noticed a big upswing in candidate response rate, which of course, leads to increased rates of hire.
    • Some recruiters are reluctant to use smashfly because they think they're doing double effort.
