Deltek Talent Management

If you have ATS needs that are more robust than one or two locations and one or two users, then it is a decent option. They were recently bought by Deltek, and they are working hard to improve the support side of things, which is currently severely lacking. Would also recommend more for an American company than a Canadian one (W2s are built in, cross posting partners are mostly American, etc.).

I've had job openings where I received 10 candidates, and some where I've received over 250. My opinion is that iCIMS is very helpful if you have candidate pools over 25, and especially if your company is under scrutiny with audits or outside governing bodies. iCIMS helps especially with transparency. If you're a small to medium sized company with an informal hiring process, iCIMS might be too much

Pros

Deltek Talent Management

  • Does what it says it can do. There are several systems out there that claim they can do something, but they either can't or they don't address it well.
  • Support Services from the providers of HRSmart (Monster).
  • Partnership with Monster has provided access to their database and resources.

iCIMS

  • Applicant tracking - it allows us to keep up with their status in the entire new hire process
  • Ease of use - iCIMS is very user-friendly
  • Organization - iCIMS is very clearly labeled and organized, so you never have to search too far for someone or something

Cons

Deltek Talent Management

  • Consultative support - it doesn't exist!
  • Timely response to service requests (some requests have taken MONTHS to get resolved).
  • More robust reporting.
  • More transparency with system upgrades without blaming the client for making changes to the back-end when the upgrade has adversely altered the current functionality.

iCIMS

  • Conditional Logic; This is the biggest opportunity for improvement for iCIMS. Not having this functionality becomes an issue when we want to prevent users from doing something based on a set of other - sometimes unrelated - conditions. Conditional logic would allow us to set up a more prescriptive process which would reduce user error and help maintain compliance. They have JUST released some promising new functionality in this area and I hope to see similar types of improvements around conditional logic elsewhere in the platform soon.
  • Onboarding; Okay, we all know the purpose of an Applicant Tracking Systems is (at least historically) to track APPLICANTS. But if you've been involved in attempting to design a streamlined onboarding process, you know it's a beast all it's own. The capabilities of the Onboard module in iCIMS are . . . acceptable. It's functional, but it's not great. For the company with less complexity, I think the Onboard module would be a wholly sufficient. However, for more complex organizations, what's lacking becomes a bit more obvious (conditional logic would also be a huge win if applied to the onboarding module!)
  • As with almost everything in iCIMS, you do have the ability to configure the content of the onboarding portal(s) to your liking. However, the user-interface itself leaves a lot to be desired and isn't nearly as sleek as the rest of the platform. They've recently released an update with some improved functionality and it seems like they are beginning to dedicate more resources to this area, so that's exciting. We've had over 15k new hires funnel through our onboarding process in iCIMS this year so by no means is this a deal breaker but I do hope for some functional and aesthetic improvements in the coming year.

I would say that we are very likely to renew with iCIMS. They seem to continuously be improving their product based on the feedback from their clients. In addition, the thought have having to go through another implementation of this level is daunting and as long as the software continues to meet the business needs of the company and provides the appropriate level of support we will most likely stay. Costs regarding future renewals will also impact this decision and if necessary we will go to market to evaluate other options.

HRSmart is a basic, antiquated ATS that does not meet current challenges organizations face. Reporting and analytics is basic.

I think in today's world, and if you're a Recruiting professional, you have at least a good basic understanding of technology and the internet, so you can easily understand the functionality of iCIMS. I would improve my rating if iCIMS was just more effecient with less clicking.

There is always ample advance notice before the software goes down for maintenance and this is usually done at off-peak hours. As for system failures - I can't think of any that have effected us in over two years od use.

There is no easy "help" feature when you just need to figure out how to do something. Who has time to wade through videos, blogs, articles, etc. which you can't save and return to later with a keyword search. We had two demos with a rep, when we tried to see if there were ways we could improve our iCIMS usage. The rep couldn't answer any of our questions and frequently didn't even seem to know what we were talking about (e.g. passive candidates versus active applicants).

I would say I believe iCims online training is very good. It's informative, visually appealing, and simple in explaining all the different aspects of iCims. I also really like the new candidate onboarding, and all the other training curricula you have up to be able to inform or send out to the candidate. I like you can attach a URL link for videos as well so you can really customize the training. I feel that overall, I would like to see more. Perhaps, more robust options with the training, if that's something iCims is expanding on in the future.

Alternatives Considered

Deltek Talent Management

We selected HRSmart at the time because they were the leading up and coming company offering a multi-functional talent management platform on one underlying database. The value proposition was that we were supposed to only have one integration between HRIS and HRSmart.The reality was that the systems weren't as integrated as billed. Compensation was a separate module with separate interfaces and pre-hire didn't talk to post hire very well. We later learned that all clients were on different versions of the software and since then almost all other companies have built true multi-tenant SaaS platforms and offer a much better integrated value proposition.

iCIMs is better in terms of reporting and tracking data. They also have great built-in reports that you can use to track progress. However, Greenhouse excels in every other way: better user experience, integrates with calendar invites for interviews, tracks feedback for every interview that goes down. There are also interview templates you can bake into the role. I also love that you can add prospects to a job for people you meet that are great but aren't the right fit at the moment. Greenhouse has fantastic tools you can integrate with e.g. coderpad where engineers can tech out other engineers in interviews.

Return on Investment

Deltek Talent Management

  • Absolutely improved our candidate managemenr capability. Before we simply had three piles of resumes on our desk for each position (yes, no, and not yet reviewed). HRSmart changed all of that.
  • Our cost per hire was positively affected. We were hiring at a high volume and this soltion facilitated us doing that very efficiently.
  • Our ability to share candidates across open positions turned out to be a huge plus.
  • Not having to copy or scan resumes and send them via interoffice mail was HUGE in terms of efficiency gain.
  • HRSmart made it easier for candidates to apply for openings and that increased our applicant flow for open/posted positions. This translates into better hires in the end.
Scott Olsen | TrustRadius Reviewer

iCIMS

  • iCIMS has overall great customer service.
  • My organization owns this a bit; We struggled in the initial implementation process. My advice to iCIMS would be to be very detailed and upfront to new customers the importance of the implementation aspect. Have multiple calls and conversations with all individuals involved so that they can customize what they exactly want. If you don't you will be behind the 8 ball from the start and potentially never get to where you want.
  • From an ROI perspective, it cost my organization significantly because we did not have it implemented correctly from the start and given the needs in other areas for my organization (more mobile/social capabilities) caused us to make an ATS change after only 2 years.
