  • I would consider CATS ROI to be in the negative The features provided for the cost are limited. There are systems out there for the same cost that are way more robust. Additionally, the platform we recently moved to is exponentially bigger and 20% less in cost per user.

  • We went from Excel spreadsheets to using CATS so honestly anything would be an improvement. But CATS has saved tremendous time on an on-going basis in terms of managing the career portal automatically.
  • Being able to log email conversations with the click of a button from Outlook right into CATS has been a time-saver and also has helped numerous times in providing better follow-through to candidates and providing better tracking of candidate interactions and what they have previously said (or not).

  • CATS has allowed me to collect and search through a pool of resumes. My reliance on paid job boards is decreasing as my pool increases.
  • CATS is so affordable that I have money left over in my budget to play with other recruiting tools.
  • CATS automates a lot of the workflow, so I'm able to spend more time recruiting and less time doing administrative tasks.
