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.

PeopleStrategy

PeopleStrategy is an excellent product if an organization is growing in the right direction and wants to improve HR processes. The software has many different packages depending on the need and can be purchased separately if something in addition is decided in the future. This is a benefit because not all organizations may need all features right away.

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.

PeopleStrategy

ADP and Oracle are systems I have used and the GUI of Oracle even as antiquated as it is was vastly more efficient to work with than the people as well as system that PeopleStrategy claimed to be supporting. I didn't have any part in the selection of this system as it was in place before I was part of the team. We promptly began looking into all in one systems so that we could convert to a better experience for us as administrators and for the employees and their use. We ulitmatelt converted to ADP this year and even though the process was not as seemless as promised I would still take this process over using PeopleStrategy any time.
