Of course, as in any product choice, the product needs to match the company requirements. SmartSearch ATS solves tracking problems very well for small to medium sized companies - a nice broad market in itself. SmartSearch ATS would not be a good enterprise ATS choice. It is not designed to be. Based on my experience, a strong enterprise ATS does not currently exist. Most do a better job driving away passive candidates than attracting them.With SmartSearch ATS, it is possible to make it easy for passive candidates to indicate their interest.How many positions will you need to post over the next year?How many candidates will you need to track?How many company employees will need to access SmartSearch ATS to track candidates?What types of reporting do you require?What is your budget?Is the standard SmartSearch ATS fine for your company or will you need to customize?Would you like your ATS to mirror image your website?

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.
