Fountain

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.

Vincere

This has been such a fantastic experience for our company, I'd recommend Vincere in a heartbeat. Fantastic service with a team who seem like they genuinely just want to help - they really seemed to care about getting us happy with their product, especially when helping us finish the data import from our old system.

I'd say it would be a good fit for a large recruitment company as the dashboards and reporting is very good. However, the low price also makes it a good option for start-ups or cost conscious firms.

Pros

  • Scaling and managing applicant funnels
  • Easy to navigate

Vincere

  • Alex (on the help desk) is amazing when it comes to helping me when I don't know how to process things on the system; she knows exactly what I need to understand what she is trying to explain and even does a quick video for me which helps a lot and saves me time.
  • CV integration is great and saves me a lot on having to write a candidate's CV from scratch or copying and pasting.
  • The live list to clients and how it allows the client to interact with you and inside their own organization. It also looks more professional, the way it is sent to the client, than just a generic email.
  • I love the reporting system and how it keeps you on your toes, as you can see where you are as in stats and how much you need to bring in still. For managers and owners, the reporting functions are great. As long as your staff are capturing all the info into the system your reports will pretty much be 100% accurate. The best thing is you can pull a report to let you know exactly which data isn't being put into they system by which staff and you can then follow up with them.

Cons

Fountain

  • UI can be a bit chaotic
  • Integration with other platforms isn't as seamless as other platforms
  • Reporting isn't as flexible

  • Full of bugs.
  • The same data points are quoted differently across the product.
  • Removing data when you wish to leave has been a real challenge. Limited capability in the product itself and a slow to respond support team.
  • Support is poor in general.
  • Every new release provides more complexity that adds no value and compounds the many bugs in the product further.
  • Even as part of a GDPR request we found it difficult to get our data from the company, we were also charged for the privilege.
  • Support is slow and unwilling to admit where fundamental problems exist in the product. If they respond it's with a workaround rather than a fix.
  • Lots of corny comments about billing, making money, "license to Bill" are communicated from the company and in the product. Not everyone in this sector is driven by money some of us want to provide a quality service, the money is an outcome of a good job not the starting point.
  • The sales process consisted of basically lots of window dressing about the product, we were tied to 3 years and then found out most of the features we purchased the product for don't work and many still don't work nearly 3 years later.

The slow load times, buggy performance, and constant need to use workarounds make it a hugely frustrating offering, as basic as a candidate search requires the exact details to be entered or it cannot find the record in question. We struggled to get our data off their platform which should raise a very real warning for any customers who wants to leave, we were also tied into a lengthy contract, in hindsight, I should have realised the fact they felt the need to tie us in for so long suggests the product alone would not make us want to stay.

I mostly got Alex, and she was absolutely amazing and sometimes I would request for her to help me. The support at Vincere that I have received so far has been great!

Alternatives Considered

Fountain

Fountain has continual upgrades and updates to help Fountain stand out against other HR platforms. It's easy to use UI helps with onboarding, recruiting, and every activity in between. There is great automation as candidates flow through the different funnels. Fountain helps us manage different applicants across different platforms in one central location.

We came very close to signing with Bullhorn. To be fair it looks like a good system but we've heard stories from contacts of ours who have been burned by them. Also, we dealt with about 4 different salespeople during the sales cycle which didn't sit well with me. After being on our previous system for so many years we wanted to make the right choice. We also looked at Jobscience and Talent Rover but the quotations came back too high. Plus, I've used Salesforce.com before and didn't have a great experience.We were quite nervous about signing with a company that we'd never heard of - Vincere- but we felt in capable hands with the team there. It's been a really positive experience.

Return on Investment

Fountain

  • Great central location to keep all employee training
  • Easy to organize interviewing documents
  • Structure is very intuitive
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vincere

  • Candidates are lost in the pipeline. With so many candidates, they are forgotten in the system.
  • Notification system leaves us asking each other if something has been done.
  • There is no automation in it. It's like putting papers in a shoebox and digging them all out with the 'incredible' search system.
  • They call 3 times a week to ask if everything is OK. It is not okay to ask users what they want and release it 3 months later.
