iApplicants

I think the product is well-scaled to work in both large and small companies. I'm often amazed when I learn of major organizations that are still shuffling paper or sitting on applications until they sort through all of them at once. This product allows HR to organize candidates as they submit applications and EASILY notify people (en masse) once they're out of consideration (instead of no response at all, which generates a lot of follow-up phone calls.) From the module to send emails, we simply choose the job we're sending notifications for, create a message (or use a template we've pre-built), filter candidates by the code for rejected applicants, check the box next to the candidate name, and click send. Not only is the process so easy, but the message/communication to the applicant is saved in the system (as is all communication sent out via the system.) We then archive the candidates so they're not cluttering the viable candidate lists.

Pros

  • Posting to free job boards - after a job posting has been entered in the iApplicant system you have the option to send the job posting to multiple job boards that are FREE! These sites included Craig's List, Oodle, Simply Hired and Indeed. This saves time because you don't have re-enter the same information each website individually.
  • Flexibility with making changes to department/statuses - with the iApplicant system it is extremely easy to add or delete departments from the systems as well as make new "status" categories (i.e. review completed, not selected, etc.). You can make statuses that are unique to your organization.
  • Manager access - you can easily give manager access to the system by creating them a log-in that can modified after the position has been filled so another manager can use a log-in. Also, when giving manger access you can limit or customize what information they are able to see and what actions they are able to do within the system.

Cons

  • Multiple login's without additional charge.
  • More webinars regarding new trends in hiring

Unless someone else can give me similar pricing, I can't imagine I'd go elsewhere. I have renewed for several years now. I also have dealt with the same individuals over this time, which I greatly appreciate.

Usability

Easy to use but wish it had additional search and reporting features.

Reliability and Availability

Based on 1 answer
I've used this product consistently for 8 years now. In that time, I've seen ONE time that they had a technical glitch -- and THEY were all over it. The only reason I even knew about it was an email alert they sent out to all clients, explaining the issue. They also had it fixed the same day.

Performance

Based on 1 answer
It works. It's easy for everyone I've shared it with -- even my not-so-tech-savvy staff. When I hired a coordinator to handle routine HR duties, this was a simple transition to hand off to someone else without a lot of training. Sometimes it's a little slow downloading documents (resumes) from the site, but that could be a combination of issues that may not be related to their product. At one time, it wasn't able to accommodate newer Word documents (.doc vs. .docx), but they fixed that, as well.

Great people. Have dealt with same individual(s) for several years.

Online Training

I thought the training was well structured and the demos well-paced. Topics are set up sequentially so one can watch each one and build on previous tutorials. However, they are broken down into segments so a user can hone in on just a specific area where help is needed and not waste time on other topics s/he may already know. I also like the fact that the tutorials are available on the home page of the admin login, so we don't have to hunt for topics in a huge "knowledgebase." It's easy to get a quick refresher when needed (or when ready to try out something a little more advanced) and apply it immediately.

Great product support!

Alternatives Considered

We evaluated no one else, I can not really explain how they stack up against other companies. In my mind that is not the issue, I am happy with iApplicants so I am not looking into other companies. I really did happen upon this company and love it, then purchase and since have used it for 6 years.

Scalability

iApplicants10.0
Based on 1 answer
At the very basic level, it provides a place to post jobs and cross-post to free job boards. It could just be used by HR staff. However, it's more than just another place to post if one opts to utilize the full functionality-- it's an applicant management system that allows a user to pre-screen, organize, and collaborate on candidates with other users. They've added built-in background checks, reporting tools, community boards, integrated with larger/broader paid marketing opportunities, and affirmative action programs.

Return on Investment

  • Changed our government reporting from a fiasco of the guessing game to an accurate reflection of what we did
  • Provided me an excellent tool for recruiting that improved my applicant flow.
