SilkRoad was founded in 2003 and has raised multiple rounds of funding since its inception, raising a total of $192M. The company made two major acquisitions to fill out their talent management suite, acquiring OpenHire (now SilkRoad Recruiting) in 2004 and VTN Technologies (formerly GreenLight, now SilkRoad Learning) in 2008. In addition to recruiting and learning management, SilkRoad also includes Onboarding (formerly RedCarpet) and Performance (formerly WingSpan). The Onboarding product, formerly RedCarpet, is considered one of the strongest in the industry, and is the focus of the user feedback summary below.
Based on user feedback, reviewer demographics, and buyer research patterns on TrustRadius, SilkRoad is:
A good fit for: Companies that are focused on creating an integrated recruiting to onboarding process (other areas of the suite get mixed reviews or have limited data). It may be less of a good fit for organizations without internal IT resources to support the applications, given that support is a pain point across reviews of the different modules.
Most compared to: ADP Vantage, Lumesse, Infor HCM, Oracle HCM Cloud, and Cornerstone OnDemand
