Overall Satisfaction with Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn [ATS & CRM] is perhaps one of the more polished and well-designed ATS systems out on the market currently. The exact versions I've used [are] the vanilla Bullhorn and also Bullhorn S. Both systems were designed well but the S version was even more so. It was easy, quick to learn, and became intuitive very quickly. Using the system made life very easy and there were some cool features in there such as the Applicant Flow where you could track the submissions, interviews, and placements of a candidate very easily. There were some issues and some bugs regarding reliability and sometimes [the] Bullhorn Support team would take a long time to help out with any technical issues but otherwise, the product was one of the best I've used so far. The whole company was using it across multiple locations but using their own "instance" of Bullhorn due to GDPR reasons. It helped with streamlining business processes both for candidates and clients.

Itris was a good system but was very rudimentary. The functions within Itris and Bullhorn were fundamentally the same but Bullhorn's UI was much better designed and visually more appealing which made it more fun to use. Itris didn't have the applicant or client workflow but Itris had other functions like sending out SMS texts through the system easily which was a nice function that Bullhorn didn't have. Itris was also a much cheaper system to buy and maintain.

Did Bullhorn ATS & CRM live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of Bullhorn ATS & CRM go as expected?

No

Would you buy Bullhorn ATS & CRM again?

Yes

Bullhorn [ATS & CRM] would be a suitable product for anyone with an existing CRM system or ATS system that finds theirs is slow or clunky or just doesn't look very nice. Bullhorn provides a visually appealing way to address these issues. Bullhorn wouldn't be the most appropriate system if the company using it wishes to implement new features and have a fully bespoke system as Bullhorn has been built in mind to serve many different companies wanting many different things. Their support teams were not the most responsible and also Bullhorn is not a cheap system either.
