Lumesse - too big for certain britches.

Pros and Cons

  • Lumesse was very flexible to create what our organization wanted the interface to represent.
  • Lumesse could be a bit cumbersome at times, with many layers and levels to click through to get to where you need to go.
  • It allow for lots of options, sometimes too many.
  • Simplicity is key. The user interface could use some work around where a button should be located and how intricate does one layer need to be

Pros and Cons

  • Track candidates.
  • Quick Report.
  • One stop shop - meaning Lumesse holds all the information entered.
  • Share information with peers in other divisions.
  • The system is a bit slow. A faster version would be nice.
  • You can't us the back button arrow.
  • Too many clicks to get to what you want.

Basic ATS; Big Price Tag

Pros and Cons

  • It has open text boxes to add notes, on the individual candidate home page. Which is helpful when making a quick look at an individual, these notes are very obvious.
  • It has a search function; however it lacks a wild card (*); so if a req or candidate are spelled differently or referred to differently, there is no way to find them
  • Its a simple, no frills lay out
  • Lumesse needs to add timestamped features. When multiple users are in the system, its impossible to tell when or who made updates on reqs or candidates.
  • Candidate landing pages need to include more relevant information. It would be helpful to see more specifically what stage in the process they are in; i.e phone interview, submitted, waiting for feedback. Current functions are limited to New, Rejected, Hired
  • Creating reports needs to be more intuitive, when creating reports there are literally thousands of options, the options do not coincide with logical thought process and the labels do not give any indication of what one might be reporting on. There is much time spent on trial and error.
  • No personal training sessions were available. Only provided a 400 page manual to teach ourselves
  • When reporting, there are limited filter functions - sorting by date range is not a function at this time

Lumesse Review

Score 7 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • The site is easy to navigate, which helps our workers not get lost looking for information.
  • We're able to add some customizations to the platform, which allows us to smooth out processes.
  • The search function isn't very good. Sometimes we're not able to find the candidates we're looking for, and if we type in a basic name, other names not at all related come up. This can add confusion/time and delays.

True Experience Using Lumesse Globally

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Mobile device application, since many of our hiring managers are on the "road" and have little time to get into computer systems.
  • User interface is simple and intuitive.
  • True cloud-based system, that can be configured and supported by non-technical personnel.
  • The system needs to be more stable and available all the time, we had some unplanned downtime.
  • Reports can be improved, it is a bit complicated.
  • The integration with SAP should be pre-built and made available, building this was a bit complicated.

Pros and Cons

  • Lumesse allows users to customize their dashboards. Applications can be added or removed at the individual's preference.
  • I have found the system to be very inconsistent and "buggy", for lack of a better term. Today I searched for an internal requisition number and the system could not find the data. I found it by scrolling through manually, and verified that I had entered the information precisely as it appeared. There seems to be no explanation as to why it could not locate this particular entry, but I have been able to use the function without a problem in other instances.
  • The navigation is not intuitive or user-friendly. It takes an exorbitant amount of clicks to accomplish a task. Each action is confusing and time-consuming.
  • The system requires a large amount of redundant information in order to enter a job and does not auto-populate. If I indicate a position is located in Chicago, it would logically follow that the state is "Illinois", the country is "United States", and the currency is "USD". I have to manually input these details in both the requisition as well as the separate job advertisement page.
  • Changes to the job requisition are not reflected in the job advertisement, as they are separate entities. If you need to make a change, you have to update the details twice.
