We recently switched to SmartRecruiters from iCIMS. We had been with iCIMS for about four years previously. SmartRecruiters gave us a similar platform for much better cost savings. We can track the same amount of candidates and customize our forms within SmartRecruiters similarly to iCIMS at a fraction of the cost annually.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
- Bullhorn ATS & CRM
SmartRecruiters is connected with LinkedIn and it is very user friendly. I can even reply from my email account to the candidates and the conversation is saved in SmartRecruiters, which makes a recruiter's life easy. We can add reviews and ratings for candidates so it helps our progress in choosing from multiple candidates for a particular role.
I never used any other similar software in the past so I can't compare it with other products. That being said SmartRecruiters is a solid solution that can become even greater with a few improvements.
SmartRecruiters is easy to set up and use and as far as I know it is also affordable. The usage is very intuitive with the exception of some elements which could be removed / improved. As we have a small recruitment department we will carry on using this solution until we grow bigger and our needs exceed what is offered in SR.
I selected SmartRecruiters in just first go in its demo itself as I liked [its] features very much. The major thing is that I don't need to make now excel to store Data. Plus communication is also going smooth. [In the end,] I can track every [recruiter's] data how much work they have done, how many positions closed.
We considered adopting JobDiva as well and it was a strong competitor. After a lengthy review process, we decided to select SmartRecruiters because of the easy interface and integration with professional websites. The communication with the deployment team was very streamlined and we appreciated the additional work they put in to make sure the team was ready to use it.
This is a simpler website to use.
- Bullhorn Reach
SmartRecruiters should use some of the Bullhorn functionalities when it comes to resume parsing from Outlook.
However, we are able to add a resumé if saved in a folder. The drag and drop option would be usefull but it doesn't always work.SamrtRecruiters user interface and ability to comunicate via the software with the hiring manager is a definite added value and time saver.
SmartRecruiters was a good fit at the time of purchase. The price was competitive and the features were exactly what we needed to move as a blended company with multiple locations, brand names, and a large employee base. The company really did a good job of helping us get things setup as smoothly as possible. I can't blast other companies because either they weren't on our radar at the time or just weren't a good fit. Every ATS does something a little differently. SmartRecruiters was the best fit for us.
I have only used our previous tool, which was an in-house development.
I have not used or evaluated others.
We used Qandidate before it was bought out by SmartRecruiters. We liked Qandidate, but features were very basic. SmartRecruiters has more features and the online application looks more professional.
Have not used other products.
SmartRecruiters is moving in the right direction.
SmartRecruiters is fully functional for recruiting and hiring. It eliminates tedious manual data entry and automate processes, so there's no need to chase interviewers down to get feedback and make sure all relevant information is available in one system.
I've really enjoyed using SmartRecruiters, but these other ATSs that we've checked out offer better reporting features and price points. Over time, we may be transitioning off of SmartRecruiters to one of these ATSs because the price is a set price where SmartRecruiters has employee-based pricing model. Also, these other software products offer better reporting features that would eliminate some of our manual tracking process that we're currently doing.
Felt it was far simpler and more intuitive than Greenhouse that was used at a previous company.
We were down to SR and Lever. SR lacked a couple of features Lever had (that they've since rolled out) but SR provided a smooth, transparent and collaborative sales process that ultimately tipped the scales in their favor.
