Overall Satisfaction with Compas

Compas is currently being used in our three branches. The company has been growing really quick lately and keeping up with the employee history was becoming an issue. With the expected rotation at our clients locations, Compas has become our go-to tool to make sure we keep track of every action and situation that happens with our employees, Compas also has some good add-ons that allow us to integrate its features to Google Chrome and makes it easier to track email and adding all the pertinent info into the employees history.
  • The Google Chrome integration allows to have total control over the communications and sends the registry to Compas immediately. Also allows sending Google mail directly from the Compas app.
  • Allows to keep track of the whole work history and experience of each one of the employees, start dates, interviews, pay rates and termination reasons, as well as to send mass emails and text messages to employees.
  • It's fully customizable if you need to add a specific feature their support and is responsive and allows the intended customization.
  • It is a great reporting tool. You can track the performance and activities of your recruiters, make sure they are doing the pertinent contacts and follow-ups and complete their assigned tasks, also allows pulling reports on employees placed on assignment.
  • It doesn't allow for much control on changes that are done. All employees have access to modify other employees information, it has an audit trail and would show who made the changes and what the previous information was even if these are easily fixed situations. It has led to confusion with the misuse of some of the employees in our company.
  • It should have better integration with more payroll systems. They are currently offering some integration but it is not possible to fully integrate unless the payroll system is part of the compatible ones.
  • When a candidate applies from Indeed or any other job search engine, their resume tend to be modified and some dates get into the wrong places, so their parsing system should get some improvement, or at least allow to update the file that has been uploaded.
  • Having the ability to post as many ads as possible for a fixed price each month is a great way of strongly staffing without spending the extra money. We used to spend more money a month when we used to post in Zip-recruiter directly.
  • It stores a lot of good functions to make sure each employee in our branches is doing the different calls and follow-ups they need to be doing daily, and it has helped the company improve personnel performance to 30%.
  • The Company has centralized all the employees' info into one system and it allows to improve the response and the times in response.
Compas is the perfect tool to track and post jobs, also a great tool to track and follow up on candidates. It is also a great way of getting metrics for the recruiter's performance.
It has to improve their payroll tools and integration. It is hard to follow up on markups and pay rates.
