SmartSearch

Well suited for tracking applicants from start to finish. Being able to use SmartSearch to push job postings out to major job boards is very helpful in attracting active candidates and keeping them well organized. SmartSearch is less appropriate for sourcing passive candidates. Although it keeps previous applicants and candidates stored internally, their information is typically not current and thus not really ideal for reaching out to passive candidates that would actually be a good fit for any roles you are recruiting on.

Cons

  • It is very slow during certain times of the day.
  • The dashboard does not load and it seems like it crashes.
  • When trying to process resumes added to the system, it sometimes just deletes the data, forcing you to start the whole process again.
  • It seriously moves really slow and you have to exit out of the program and restart to try and make it work.
  • Certain links do not load the first time, forcing you to reload and hope they show up on the screen.

While I am not in charge of such a decision, I am very high on this ATS. You can easily pick up the basics and be able to operate the software very quickly, learning the full features of it as you become more familiar. While it can be complex if you need it to be, it can also be very simple to use.

It is very easy to use from an end-user perspective, but cumbersome to set up without an IT skill set.

My license for SmartSearch goes back to 2004. It has always been available for me - don't remember a single time it was not available in all of those years.

I believe that SmartSearch ATS deserves an 11 out of 10. In my experience (and I am technically competent for an English degree and published author), the overall support team at SmartSearch ATS deserves their recognition as a top support team. Even when I manage to find new and exciting technical challenges, the SmartSearch ATS team solves my problems. Their support is truly appreciated.

Follow the suggestions of the SmartSearch ATS staff during the implementation. Let them know where your pain points are in your current system. Provide SmartSearch ATS with your support during implementation so they may be effective supporting your business through the implementation. Then it is important to ask questions if you have any. Accept training. Use the system. The SmartSearch ATS staff are experts.
