I use Deltek Talent Management to manage artist allocations and team building. From the allocation standpoint, I used it to manage how long a particular artist is on a job or across multiple jobs. From team buildings, I use it to add artists to any incoming or ongoing jobs that are currently active.
  • Allocations
  • Timesheets
  • Tasks
  • Filters
  • Job list can get a bit confusing
  • Adding people to jobs have been somewhat difficult
Once you know how to utilize the filters, it is very handy when looking for something specific. However, it requires a bit of handholding to get to that point. Also, adjusting hours for artists is pretty quick which is useful when needing to do something right away, especially on a meeting call.

For us, it is very important to create new talents in the various areas of our company, so that some employees stand out and can obtain better strategies to optimize work results. Deltek Talent Management has been that platform that we had been looking for so much. For us, having this platform in our company has meant a consistent benefit, since we have been able to manage the performance of all employees much better. We can know which employee has the best talent and development of their activities, and which employee must apply new strategies to optimize their work. The main functionality that Deltek has given us is that it allows us to carry out retention actions, either by providing new work strategies, making rank increases to employees or providing pay bonuses for the most performed employees, all this allows us to do Deltek when we get the performance reports. We currently use Deltek in our Marketing sector, and I am in charge of using it in our sector, but it is also implemented in other sectors of our company. I am happy with the results obtained with Deltek Talent Management, with this platform we have been able to know which employee is excelling in their business activities, we can apply new work strategies so that all our employees can perform a job depending on the objectives we have, in addition, We can take complete control of the managers or the leadership of our smaller employees, since Deltek allows us to add Marketing managers who make our work easier.
  • It is very easy to know which employees have a detachment in the activities they carry out. What I like the most about Deltek is that it allows me to visualize in real time, the performance that each employee has had depending on the assignments fulfilled in the labor sector. The real-time reports are very detailed, it offers information on work time, the activities carried out, assignments fulfilled and not fulfilled, and it also performs an automated process to know how effective each of the assignments fulfilled has brought to the company.
  • It has excellent integration with our workforce management software. This integration is what has allowed us to obtain these great results, since it allows us to transfer all the data collected about the work of each employee, and automates the analysis of the data collected, providing us with a detailed report on the performance and prominence of the various employees.
  • The support and technical assistance Deltek provides is second to none. When I started using this software in my Marketing sector, I had several questions about the compensation system and how I could apply it to my employees. The doubts were answered in a live chat, with precise answers.
  • One of the main missing functions or feature that is not present in Deltek is the fact that I can manage all the talent of my employees from my cell phone. Currently, the Deltek Talent Management platform operates in the cloud, there is no application with which I can access my talent data in my sector without using my computer. The development of an application is very necessary, you could have detailed reports on the performance of the employees from anywhere if there was an application for mobile phones.
  • Regarding the functionality of Deltek, I have no complaints whatsoever. This service has allowed me to know what performance my new employees are having within my work sector and has allowed me to know which employees are standing out, to be able to carry out retention actions and to be able to provide special comfort to those employees. It's great not having any kind of complaint from Deltek.
Deltek Talent Management is the best way to know exactly what type of performance your employees are having. This platform is the best option to consider for those companies that constantly recruit new employees, since it has a functionality to monitor the performance of these new candidates, in addition, it allows to know if these new employees are fulfilling their activities, Deltek monitors fulfilling assignments on a daily basis.

Deltek collects data in real time about the tasks performed by employees, performs an automated process to highlight employees who are performing better in their assignments, in addition, it has an excellent compensation system, capable of providing recognitions, certifications and labor bonuses to encourage "top" employees to continue performing their activities. I definitely recommend it for any company, it adapts quickly, it is easy to use and its panel is very simple.

Deltek Talent Management is being used as a core human resources management software platform to manage, onboard, and roll off resources on various projects related to federal contracting.
  • Resource management.
  • Compensation management.
  • Product interface.
  • Third party integrations.
Deltek works quite well in the government space because it is well integrated, but beyond that, I don't see that many uses for it in the commercial angle. It works well with other Deltek tools such as time and expense too.
Deltek provides adequate support for their products and I have had no complaints at all with their customer support and time to help fix the problems.

We have the HRSmart ATS, and use it for recruitment at our 30 locations across Canada. The hiring managers use it to post requisitions, screen and review resumes and request offer letters. The HR department cross posts the jobs, tracks recruitment metrics and completes offer letters and onboarding for all employees. We do not use the performance management and training modules, we just use it as an ATS/onboarding tool.
  • Screening questionnaires are great and easy to use for sorting applicants and screening out unqualified applicants.
  • Cross posting to various advertising sponsors with the click of a button saves a lot of time and effort!
  • The user interface is crammed with stuff and it's sometimes hard to find where you need to be at any given time. For example, you can't just use the search bar to find all people in the system named "Maria". You need to know whether she is a "resume", a "candidate" or an "employee", or use one of the menus to search in a different window.
  • It's not very Canadian-friendly. The options for cross posting are mostly American or Spanish.
  • The onboarding isn't the greatest. They have lots of options for creating e-signable documents, but some of the most necessary information (like tax forms) are not able to be e-signed, so candidates were having to do some forms online and print some off and they were getting very confused and we had to scrap the whole endeavour.
If you have ATS needs that are more robust than one or two locations and one or two users, then it is a decent option. They were recently bought by Deltek, and they are working hard to improve the support side of things, which is currently severely lacking. Would also recommend more for an American company than a Canadian one (W2s are built in, cross posting partners are mostly American, etc.).

I used HR Smart with a previous employer. We used the ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to manage post open positions, manage resumes and manage the whole sourcing process.
  • The ATS made managing the sourcing process easy from posting open positions to different sites, managing the resumes and resume flow to managers and making sure the candidate has completed all the necessary steps (completed application, completed background screen, etc.)
  • The ATS was user friendly and didn't involve a lot of training to get comfortable using the system
  • The support/assistance provided was generally very timely if we encountered an issue that needed to be resolved.
  • I can't remember if the system has the functionality to actually board the candidate into the HRIS system or if we just didn't use that, but it would have been helpful to have candidates to be seamlessly boarded upon hire.
One question I would ask if deciding to use the system is if it intergrates with your specific HRIS system so that onboarding candidates will be seamless.

We use HR Smart as an ATS and training program. We use it for managing our recruiting cycle (resume storage, posting and progressing); training (course listing, certificates and tracking), performance management and for our annual reviews. The system is primarily used by our Talent Development team and our Human Resources team, but it does sync up with our employee database and management software (not quite an HRIS, but we use it as such).
  • Does what it says it can do. There are several systems out there that claim they can do something, but they either can't or they don't address it well.
  • Support Services from the providers of HRSmart (Monster).
  • Partnership with Monster has provided access to their database and resources.
  • Relatively difficult to use for someone who isn't tech savvy.
  • Monster made changes to the system that were rolled out, but the previous functionality was better.
  • Not streamlined. A process that should be simple requires way too many steps.
The ATS is trending in the right direction, but the talent development piece needs a lot of work. It was a very difficult process when it came time to do our annual reviews. Multiple steps were required to either troubleshoot an error or to allow a manager to go back and either edit or update a record. Our Talent Development Manager does not enjoy that time of year.

We use HRSmart as our sole applicant tracking system. Primary users are the recruiters in human resources with limited usage by the hiring managers in the various business units.
  • Not much - a very limited, ineffective tool. However, it is a very low-cost solution.
  • Consultative support - it doesn't exist!
  • Timely response to service requests (some requests have taken MONTHS to get resolved).
  • More robust reporting.
  • More transparency with system upgrades without blaming the client for making changes to the back-end when the upgrade has adversely altered the current functionality.

Low cost solution - a plus!

Lack of consultative support, robust functionality and timely service responsiveness - much needed room for improvement!

We used HRSmart for recruiting for one year and then replaced it. We used HRSmart for LMS, Performance and Compensation. All employees and managers used these modules. This was used as a transactional system to capture compliance and development online training, manage performance reviews online and manage the annual salary planning process.
  • They are supportive of customization.
  • They worked hard to make the platform seamless across modules for the user.
  • The premise of the version we were on was that it was one platform. As it turned out the underlying database was somewhat the same but the user experience was different and the data was not moved from one place to another seamlessly. The compensation module was a separate system provided by a subcontractor.
  • The system overall is not user friendly and doesn't have standards set for compliance reporting, especially in the applicant tracking module. HRSmart could do well to get user feedback on the UI and incorporate a better user experience.
  • The system is not a true multi-tenant SaaS. Each customer is on a separate version making updates inefficient and customization possible. The user community is ineffective at influencing product development. The product seemed to be under invested in.
The only plausible scenario for a good fit with HRSmart is a small company that requires a lot of customization and is willing to pay premium prices.

We deployed HRSmart primarily for use by the recruiting team staff members as our core ATS. When a manager from another department was comfortable with utilizing the technology in the hiring process, we would process that recruit using the HRSmart solution as our conduit for communications through the selection process. HRSmart was the companies first introduction to managing recruiting through an ATS solution.
  • HRSmart offered a streamlined and clean user interface. I truly appreciated the fact that the application offered the functionality that I needed and I never felt like I was only using 10% of it's capability - that's an annoyance of mine.
  • HRSmart offered a very efficient manner in which to manage my candidate pool for any position I was trying to fill. Changing the applicants status was easy.
  • I appreciated how HRSmart placed candidates into distinct "buckets" based on my actions. At any time it was easy to see how many candidates I had in various stages of the pipeline.
  • Being able to forward resumes directly from the interface to the hiring manager (along with my notes and comments) was efficient. Managers appreciated how the resumes were formatted and the fact that there was a consistent manner in how candidate information was presented to them.
  • I typically have at least one or two items about any given thing that I can say, "Gee, I wish this were different, this is really frustrating...", but honestly speaking, with regards to my use of HRSmart, I've got nothing. It really did perform exactly the way I needed it to. I don't want to pretend that it was perfect, but nothing really stands out in terms of recommendations for improvement.
I felt like HRSmart was particulalry well-suited for the single location (or regional location) business needing an ATS. That would describe our business at the time I was shopping for an ATS and chose HRSmart. ALL of the other solutions were proud about the multi-location, multi-state, international capability, but that did not fit our need whatsoever. We demo'd 4 different ATS solutions, with 4 of us playing in the sandbox of each one. At the conclusion of that exercise, we each independently came back with HRSmart as our first choice. It made our selection decision pretty easy. Never regretted it later.

The HRSmart applicant tracking system was used globally by all divisions of the company.
  • We had volume recruiting and the pre-screening capabilities of the system helped with managing the recruiting process
  • The ability to store standard job descriptions aided in the managers ability to open and route recruiting reqs for approval
  • The managers appreciated the ability to track the progress of the recruiting requisitions and candidates
  • Powell intended to implement many of the HRSmart modules; however, we found that requiring a unique email acocunt was a major obstacle for us. Many of the of the Powell emplolyees did not have a company email account. This required us to delay implementation while we identified a work-around.
We reviewed several applicant tracking systems. HRSmart was more cost efficient than the other systems; however, for the size and needs of the company it was the right solution. No solution will address 100% of your needs.

HRSmart effectively addresses the recruiting needs when you have a large number of respondents.

HRSmart does require professional candidates to spend more time in the applicant process than I had hoped for.

HR Smart was used in our organization for the Human Resources department. We utilized it for a number of different aspects including organization of new and old candidates. For job postings and notes on the existing candidates. The organization was slowly being drawn into using this program through different techniques. HR Smart is not a well defined program. It is glitchy, slow, and somewhat hard to understand. The program itself is simple to look at but when placing notes and or information into the system they love to add a bunch of coding and the movement through the program is spontaneous sometimes very quick. I actually grew quite frustrated and devised my own system for organization. The team with HRSmart is helpful though but only by so much.
  • Job Posting
  • Job Organization
  • Relationship with other posting sources
  • Coding information placed randomly....why?
  • Organization of candidates
  • Search engine
How well does the billion searches work? How about note taking abilities, for a recruiter this is very important.
