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.

WinSearch

WinSearch works for a small recruiting company with low amounts of emails. Companies, where recruiters rely on heavy email, should avoid this due to delays and slow tech support fixes. Security and data breaches have occurred, and would negatively impact any company.

Cons

Fountain

  • UI can be a bit chaotic

  • Reporting isn't as flexible
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WinSearch

  • Winsearch provides email which is easily overwhelmed resulting in hangups and painfully slow searches. This is fixable with workarounds, but still not worth the wait if you seek a reliable software.
  • Winsearch is susceptible to hacks, and security issues. The system can go down for as long as a week as a result of a hack. The resulting interruption of business makes this software package not a good buy.

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.

JobDiva has more functionality, and costs a bit more. I have done a demo of JobDiva, but haven't been an active user.

WinSearch

  • WinSearch database CRM is reliable and works well. Their email system negatively impacts my business. Security breaches and hacks could last 1 week and are very harmful to customers.
