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 think it's a good platform for tracking and monitoring goals, feedback, and development. We don't use the 1:1 meeting feature, however, I can see how that would be valuable for many organizations. I do like that it is very customizable, however, that also presents problems in that sometimes forms and/or processes can be a bit challenging to create easily and quickly.

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.

  • 1:1 agendas are easy to create, add comments to and prompt excellent conversation flow on the topics that truly matter to the manager and the employee.
  • The system can be easily customized to reflect your company's language and culture. We did this in several areas of the platform (goals, development, learning), and it made a world of difference in the understanding and adaptation of our users. One example is that in each learning module, we added 3 questions in the course description so that managers would be automatically prompted to ask to follow up / learning transfer questions when their employees enroll and take a learning course.
  • Halogen support is outstanding. Any question I have had has been answered upon the first contact or within 24 hours.

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.

  • My organization does not use all of the functions/modules that Halogen offers, but I find that those modules still appear on the Halogen main page. I think a great area for improvement is to hide these functions so as not to confuse employees.

Implementing a new system and process company wide is never an easy task. We moved so quickly in such a short period of time that we were able to learn quickly but also have the opportunity to improve the Halogen experience. We will more than likely will renew our use of Halogen as we already are seeing a small impact which hopefully in the long run will lead to a greater impact

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

Halogen is very intuitive and provides very clean work-space ... lots of white space and modern layouts. There is more than one way to accomplish your action, too!

We only purchased the appraisal module and without the other modules offered, you are really limited in what you can do and the process becomes much more involved with needing to maintain information across multiple platforms. We found that they charge for everything and call it "consulting." We poured so much money and time into a system that was just overkill for what we really needed.

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.

I have used other systems in the past and I like that Halogen provides everything in one space. I would like to see a more developed way to report training, not in the LMS, but I think that for the most part that Halogen is a robust system that is superior to its competition.

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

Saba TalentSpace (formerly Halogen)

  • We are able to get our reviews done in a quicker amount of time. Instead of 4-8 weeks we were able to get it done under a month.
  • Halogen has gotten better at given us a heads up when the system will be down. Most patches are done overnight so we can at least verify it was done, but their success rate of a patch not breaking something is not at 99%. So we do lose productivity when the system is down.
  • The tool is easier to do so there are fewer questions from users outside the core team.
