Freshteam

It is a very great product for the generation of customised reports according to the requirement of the stakeholders, can be easily integrated with google calendar to add interview invitations but a few things needs to be improved such as adding new features like timekeeping and performance management. Rest the product is very much effective and value for the money.

I believe StratEx is well suited for any type of business at any size. However, I believe the sweet spot would be hotels and restaurants that are small to midsize. With the right HR staff in place, StratEx is so user-friendly and moldable to the needs of the business that it can be used in any industry, location, or by any company with any employee population.

Pros

Freshteam

  • Moving interviews through each stage. It helps keep you stay organized and no one falls through the cracks.
  • Communicating with people through the Freshteam email is easy and again it helps guide interviews through the process. It also reminds you to follow up with people when they will not move forward to the next stage.
  • The hiring manager can log in and see the progress and notes at all times. You can also load your different interview questions in so the entire hiring committee can have everything in one place.

  • HR Services. StratEx provides you a dedicated HR Services Account Manager. This person not only knows the intricacies of the HR software, but also supports all HR functions within the organization. Our StratEx HR Services Manager stays up-to-date on all laws and governmental guidance and provides support across our multi-location workforce.
  • Sales Experience. We sat through several proposals and demos from lots of companies (including the big players, like ADP, Ultimate, and Ceridian) and all of them were just completely useless. We often left with more questions than we had and we could get no answers--just the same corporate jargon. StratEx offered a different experience. A quick introductory call before we even started looking, and a low-pressure, friendly conversation where they really discovered who we are as a company and then proposed how they could meet our needs.
  • Software support. From the very beginning, the software support was out of this world. During implementation, I could pick up the phone and call one of two people who I had started building a relationship with. They knew me, our account, our practices --- everything. They waited until I told them I was ready to move to General Support. General Support isn't a bad thing! Our dedicated team of two specialized in implementation and they were released to go work on the next client. General Support is a dedicated group of three or four people who also know me and our practices. They are available when I need them to support any issues or changes that come up. StratEx's support is fantastic.

Cons

Freshteam

  • Pipeline features need to be improved so that we can map out our recruitment process onto the platform.
  • Can we get options for embedding a carrier's web page into our existing website, to show all of our published jobs?
  • Implementing a simple UI to push our job into third party websites, or an API which helps us find most known job portals.
  • We need some assessment features for various jobs, including mine, so it will also a necessary part of every recruitment application.

  • I would like to see the reporting features expanded more. I can build custom reports, but I would love to be able to extract any data point I want to create reports I need.
  • Passive benefit enrollment. Currently, their system doesn't support the ability for employees to remain passively enrolled through each benefit enrollment period. Each year, every employee has to go into the system and re-enroll in benefit elections/deferrals. This isn't complicated for our company and requires extra work on our end.
  • I would like to see social functions built into the site. The site is already a platform many employees are in all the time, so instead of us looking for an intra-net or employee site provider, we could simply use StratEx if the option were available.

Alternatives Considered

Freshteam

While Freshteam is almost as good as Recruiterbox, for a high volume recruiting environment, the free version of Freshteam won't meet your team's needs. Recruiterbox is expensive, but worth the cost for high volume recruiting environments. I previously used MightyRecruiter, but there were way too many bugs & outages/downtime. I would not recommend MightyRecruiter

Without a doubt, StratEx wins. Against all the major players in the HRS/HRIS industry, StratEx's biggest win is cost, both implementation and ongoing costs. The other's we evaluated offered tons of flashy things that most companies don't really need. When it was all said it done, we looked at what we needed and what we will need and determined that there is no reason to pay for a "big" brand name and be a small fish in their large ponds. I cannot imagine there is a company that would need anything StratEx doesn't offer. And, when it came down to it, all the major players came down from their original proposals by $100,000 or more to be more competitive with StratEx and we still went with StratEx. They've kept every promise, they've always been available, and they know where they are going as a company.

Return on Investment

Freshteam

  • Customer service is not really the best.
  • I love the price. The amount of features for the cost is so satisfying,
  • Some of the UI/UX needs improved.
MOHAMED GAMAL GAD | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Financial Savings. The costs of StratEx is based on company population and active employees. This saved us a lot of dollars we were able to invest elsewhere in the company. The idea of "we'll grow with you" is modeled here as StratEx's simple cost structure does, in fact, grow as you grow, so the expense for StratEx is relative.
  • The soft savings is also a big ROI. The amount of productivity recovered by bringing an HR system in-house gives us control and easy access. Further, the software is intuitive and user-friendly, which saves so much time.
  • The HR Support services also are an added layer or counsel and guidance on the many HR laws that surround companies these days.
