Overall Satisfaction with Crelate Talent

Crelate is used by the executive search department, a 3-person team. We use it to house all of our candidates - potential and active - for the different roles we're looking to fill. We also use it to sort potential candidates into other groups, such as bankers or people who may have connections to Boston. We have their contact info there, their resumes, their interviewing status, notes we take on their backgrounds...everything we need on a candidate. We also keep track of their gender and race, as we are focused on increasing the number of female and otherwise underrepresented minorities in roles they have not traditionally been able to hold.
  • The way that all the information about a candidate is readily available at the top of their profile is great and very helpful
  • The amount of filters you can use to sort through candidates is really useful
  • The Crelate team is really responsive to inquiries and suggestions
  • Interface isn't great - there's a lot of clicking around required that I wish was streamlined
  • This isn't a self-explanatory platform - you have to dig around a while before you figure out how to use some features, like the filtering of contacts, for example. There's a place that you'd think you filter, but that actually changes the contacts list instead.
  • It often crashes and you have to sign out and sign back in for it to work again.
  • Can more easily organize our candidates and we have a lot of info at our fingertips - this translates to quicker processes which is positive
  • We keep all our notes on Crelate - very useful for the whole team to see
  • We have multiple team members scheduling so it really helps to see all the emails that have gone out, to ensure there's no overlap
Crelate is wonderful if you just want basic candidate tracking. It does everything it needs to do on that front - let you track the stages the candidate is in, have their resume and contact info ready, as well as their current position. The extension that allows you to mine from LinkedIn is also very handy and I use it daily. It works very well. You can easily add candidates to open opportunities and if you are organized, Crelate can be really helpful.

If you don't want to put in a lot of the legwork, Crelate may not be for you. There is a lot of manual work that you must do to make Crelate functional - all tagging, any information that doesn't come in through the resume or LinkedIn (and you have to double check because, like with anything, there are sometimes errors in the import). It's not a very streamlined platform and not intuitive. But as I said, if you need a basic ATS, it'll do the job.
