Many recruiters, including myself, have found success in using Smashfly to engage talent and stay in touch throughout the hiring process. To measure the ROI of our paid advertising agreements, our recruiting team and organisation need an all-encompassing, sophisticated recruitment marketing platform that comprised career site management, SEO, job distribution, a CRM, and data analytics. It is the platform on which we support the majority of our clients.
  • Great Customer Service
  • Marketing campaign tools that are robust
  • Candidates' engagements with requisitions can be tracked.
  • Easy and successful integration with external systems
  • Alert system needs an improvement when things are not working properly.
  • Limited reporting functionalities with large amount of data.
  • Job updates should be posted on our career portal in real time.
Symphony Talent, I believe, could benefit all organisations, large and small. Given that it is a job-market seeker these days, having a recruitment marketing platform is a must. SmashFly is an excellent tool for gathering information on prospects. It has the ability to do automatic email campaigns which saves a lot of time, effort, and resources. However, if a position is more specialist, I feel recruiters would be better off personalising each attempted contact with candidates, which could easily be done without using Smashfly's platform.

We use Symphony Talent in our Talent Acquisition department that recruits for 16 medical centers and facilities across the state of Maryland. Our recruitment team and organization needed an all-encompassing, robust recruitment marketing platform that included career site management, SEO, job distribution, a CRM, and data analytics to assess the ROI of our paid advertising partnerships.
  • Career Site Management
  • Robust marketing campaign tools
  • Easily integrates with a number of our vendor partnerships
  • Customer service
  • Support
  • A more streamlined process between Symphony Talent and SmashFly products
  • Would love to see them add an ATS to their list of products. In a perfect world, I would want one system that does it all.
  • Job distribution and updates pushed to our career site in real-time
I think all organizations both small and large could benefit from Symphony Talent. It is a must to have a recruitment marketing platform these days given it's a job-seekers market. It is more important today more than ever to capture and nurture leads for your organization and keep them updated on jobs and things happening related to the culture of your organization. Organizations with less than 100 people may be able to get away without it.

SmashFly is being used by our Talent team across the States. Currently we are using it as an applicant tracking system that prompts an applicant to fill out a talent network form capturing data on those interested in our company. Then our integration with Cornerstone sends applicants and their current statuses back to SmashFly. We use this data to launch email campaigns and dynamically search through candidate details.
  • Ability to track candidates engagements with requisitions
  • Personalized email campaigns
  • Ability to post requisitions in different job sites
  • Easy to integrate other systems with SmashFly
  • Talent Network Forms
  • Reporting limitations when extracting large amounts of data
  • Not user friendly for admins
  • Best to handle the integration on the company side as SmashFly is unable to alert you if things are not working properly
SmashFly is a great tool for collecting data on candidates. It saves a tremendous amount of time with its ability to automate email campaigns. I would recommend handling the integration work on your company side so you can set-up alerts if a file fails or sftp passwords change.
I believe SmashFly does a great job supporting their system and staying involved with their clients. Everything in the system is basically a workflow so you can create them or reachout to support for help.

A Smash with Recruiters!

Smashfly is something we use across the organization, supporting many of our clients. Recruiters primarily use it for candidate engagement marketing with prospective candidates and applicants that they source from LinkedIn, career sites, Monster, Indeed, CareerBuilder, and other resume databases. Many recruiters along with myself have found success in using Smashfly to engage talent and keep in contact throughout the various stages of the hiring process.
  • Candidate Engagement - with a click of a button, recruiters can send out recruitment marketing emails to many passive candidates, which has shown an increase in our response rate.
  • Organization - Smashfly does a great job of visualizing the step-by-step process a candidate goes through during interviewing. It is great at keeping track and holding notes for specific applicants.
  • Reporting - Smashfly gives managers an in-depth look at who's getting the must bang out of their buck. They can see who's getting responses and who's not, and from there, managers can adjust accordingly.
  • Moving candidates through steps can seem very clunky. When I first started using the software, I was turned off because it seemed to be a little redundant.
I think Smashfly is more suited for high-volume requisitions where you want to contact tons of candidates at a given time. Being able to devote more time to finding profiles of qualified talent instead of reaching out individually is great. However, if a position is more niche or not as broad, I believe recruiters would have more luck personalizing each attempted contact with candidates, which could easily be done without the use of Smashfly's platform.
