It has a great parsing feature and the extension is very helpful. Many ATS systems do not support parsing within LinkedIn...this one does. I was sad to see this option go when we finally transitioned. I would almost keep CATS just for the LinkedIn parsing if I knew I could easily get the information OUT of the system once it was there. A good API/webhook would be great, but sadly the API connections don't work well. Our firm also works with companies with multiple sites all across the US. There was never a way to "nest" a location with a parent company. Because of this, being able to research or report on a true client relationship was not possible. It was a very manual process.

CATS is difficult to use as a federal contractor, as it does not easily generate the data that we need to provide to meet regulations. We have managed work-arounds by using fields for uses they were not designed, but we are still unable to accurately and automatically generate the data we need.

I don't know how appropriate it'd be for large organizations with very large recruiting teams - cost per license might not make sense after a certain point. For small/medium sized businesses, it's absolutely worth a look. It's very affordable, super-easy to use, highly configurable, and set up is an breeze. Knowledge base is decent, and support is generally OK, though it's not necessarily a strength. The product team is engaged with the user community to crowdsource suggestions for updates/improvements and allows users to vote on others ideas that are appealing. Search functionality is solid and documents are instantly indexed as far as I can tell - I've never noticed any delay. It'll push postings out to various free job boards and you can customize to push out to pay boards as well. It will integrate to certain HRIS packages, so if that's of interest, making sure yours is on the supported list would be important. Data backup is super easy and would likely make changing to another ATS down the road pretty simple if the need arises.

I am a sole proprietor doing third party recruiting. For me, it is the perfect solution set without being overkill (for which I would pay with other products). I can't really speak to any scenario other than that. In evaluating it, I HIGHLY recommend playing around with the online demo to see for yourself how you would adapt it to your needs. However, also do not be afraid to ask how to accomplish certain things. There is a LOT of functionality that is not immediately obvious but which support can quickly get you to.

For any recruiting agency or small to mid-sized firm looking for a good, economical, easy to use ATS then CATS is the best. If you need a complete HRIS system, talent management, payroll, etc., then there may be better options for you.

From a pure ATS standpoint it is very strong. Depending on CRM requirements from a business development standpoint it is something to evaluate closely. Overall for us it is a great system that I would highly recommend given its functionality and price point in the marketplace.

CATS has two products - HR and agency. So no matter what kind of recruiting you do, it will work for you. If there's a chance you may be audited by the Department of Labor, you should consider another product with a more detailed reporting capability.

I've only used the CATS product in a small recruiting firm environment and it works perfectly. I used to manage a National Search firm and I see the product as very adaptable on a large scale as well.
