TargetRecruit - CATS is way more user friendly than TargetRecruit. You have to have a degree in Computer Programming to use TargetRecruit. CATS is very streamlined, clean and easy to implement.

Zoho Recruit - with the exception of the resume parser, CATS is an infant learning to crawl and Zoho Recruit competes in triathlons. For $70 per month per user, you can build a recruiting universe.

Top Echelon - turns out they purchased CATS. We tested them, but it was not as user friendly.

JobAdder - loved this product. Customizable like CATS, but the API for JobAdder gives many, many option. However, JobAdder only uses Zapier and all the addons will nickel and dime you to death. A $100 license with JobAdder becomes a $250 per month per user really quick.

The implementation relative to anything else I've seen that is as customizable and powerful as CATS is first reason. The cost is a huge factor as well - at $99/month for a user license, it's much less expensive than similarly featured products and immensely better than ones similarly priced. Almost any company is probably wise to at least take a look at this system. It won't be right for everyone, but it's a strong option.

Customization and cost. A lot of the products are really overkill for a one person shop that is strictly recruiting - no need of HR functionality. I had very specific ways I wanted to be able to customize / track certain things. CATS was the only product that could accomplish all the ones that were important to me. It is also the most cost effective. It's an excellent value.

  • Sendouts
We used to use Sendouts (prior to it being acquired by Bullhorn) - and it wasn't browser based like CATS so instead of being able to access it from a home computer, laptop, mobile phone, etc. you could only use it on the computer with the software uploaded - which is a hindrance. It also wasn't as customizable as CATS. We picked CATS because it the price was right, it was browser-based, had email-integration, and integrates with social media and job posting services to share your jobs with the public.

People Matter was not as user friendly as the simplicity of CATS software. They also don't have enough options for specific questions and search filters for writing reports. Our time to screen candidates to hire would have increase about 80%.
