SmartSearch

The size of the organization looking to deploy it is important; in my opinion small to mid size organizations would be optimal. [Consider the] level of support needed. Talk to past and current users who are in your industry and outside your industry. Talk to clients all over the country, especially those in your time zone.

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.

Support

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.

Implementation

Based on 2 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

I have used Pointwing, Ultra-Staff, and SmartSearch. Of the 3 SmartSearch was the fastest and the smoothest to use. It was more customizable and caused less issues when used. While I am not familiar enough with the reporting end of things, I would say that may be where it may fall short.

Return on Investment

  • SmartSearch ATS is a time saver for all who use it. Since time = money, the ROI is quick.
  • SmartSearch ATS makes everyone more efficient. Efficiency is key in an industry that moves so quickly.
  • SmartSearch ATS helps us meet our overall business objectives. By doing the functions it offers so well, it allows us to focus on our jobs - fill open staffing positions.
