Likelihood to Recommend
Organizations who have very few applications and/or very few positions posted are probably less likely to benefit as high from PeopleAdmin. Large organizations who have several positions and/or several applications/applicants can definitely benefit from this product. This product is not as well suited for performance management as I had hoped because there is not a lot of freedom to creating and designing different evaluations for different position types in the system when you have an organization that has thousands of different employees and types.

First of all, I would like to point out that the application is very popular by many companies. Whether you're in the sales department or any other department, whenever you want to find the contact information of any company executive, Signalhire will help you just in time. For example, I recently found the contact information of the CEO of the company I wanted to reach, thanks to the application.
Read full review Pros Applicant tracking was a good use of this tool for our department. I think it could use a few more customization features but overall it was a good tool to weed out applicants who were not qualified for the position. The system has some canned reporting tools that also worked well for our department and management needs. It was a great place to house our position descriptions and provided a readily accessible source for hiring managers to make requested updates and changes and for employees to see and have access to their position descriptions. Read full review I don't understand why SignalHire presents itself as a recruitment tool when in fact it is perfect for sales. With SignalHire I can find contact details of potential prospects by their Linkedin accounts and by contact details I don’t only mean emails but also phone numbers which a lot similar tools have difficulty finding. Its accuracy is a lot higher than other apps I have used when it comes to emails. Read full review Cons PeopleAdmin's internal report writer needs work. Currently, in version 7, reporting can only be done requisition number by requisition number. The report writer needs to be modified so it can create reports enterprise-wide. PeopleAdmin's Data Mart product needs substantial modification. In version 5.8, on a monthly basis, PeopleAdmin provided us with an Microsoft Access database containing our historical data up to that period end. In version 7, the "Data Mart" contains our historical data. The Data Mart consists of over 300 files. These files are not database table downloads nor is it parts of a database data dump. Rather, the files appear to be scrapes from html pages. They contain html codes and other character data that needs to be cleaned before they can be uploaded. The files are not in a table-by-table format. Any one file can contain data from two or more tables. The format of the Data Mart makes it difficult to load the data into a database and format it in a table structure that is comparable to the Access database provided with version 5.8. Read full review Phone number finding can be improved as it is precisely correct less than 50% of time. Also generally similar apps have built in CRM systems which I think SignalHire should implement as well. Also I wish the number of free credits was higher since you get 5 credits and when I tried this for the first time three out of five emails were wrong and I almost opted for another tool.

We are evaluating our options as it relates to PeopleAdmin. We are likely to renew as we can not find another product that gives us the functionality we have with PeopleAdmin 5.8 in the area of Position Description. Outside of that, we would likely be close to finding another product solution.

I've used both Target Recruit and HR Smart. When working with Target Recruit it quickly became apparent it was not the right solution for us. Another solution we examined prior to selection PeopleAdmin was iCIMS. iCIMS is a very social system but was not as familiar with the Higher Education recruitment processes as was PeopleAdmin.

Normally, we have used other applications than SignalHire, but if you ask what's the difference, the first one is that it gives you 100% correct information and the cost is suitable for every pocket. So the information provided by most applications may be wrong, but I did not encounter this in SignalHire.
