Modules Used

  • HRSmart applicant tracking system

Overall Satisfaction

The HRSmart applicant tracking system was used globally by all divisions of the company.
  • We had volume recruiting and the pre-screening capabilities of the system helped with managing the recruiting process
  • The ability to store standard job descriptions aided in the managers ability to open and route recruiting reqs for approval
  • The managers appreciated the ability to track the progress of the recruiting requisitions and candidates
  • Powell intended to implement many of the HRSmart modules; however, we found that requiring a unique email acocunt was a major obstacle for us. Many of the of the Powell emplolyees did not have a company email account. This required us to delay implementation while we identified a work-around.
  • Recrutiers were able to review a large number of resumes in a shorter time.
  • Hiring managers were able to track the candidates
  • Reduced the number of lost recruting reqs / resumes because everything was managed via the system
Every system has something unique that sets it apart from the competition. We reviewed several ATS during the decision process. HRSmart provided us the ability to interface with the Oracle tracking system, background provider and offered learning and performance review modules to support of measuring the success of your hire.
I am no longer with Powell Industries; however, they are still using the system after three years. I have recommended this system to my peers.
We reviewed several applicant tracking systems. HRSmart was more cost efficient than the other systems; however, for the size and needs of the company it was the right solution. No solution will address 100% of your needs.

HRSmart effectively addresses the recruiting needs when you have a large number of respondents.

HRSmart does require professional candidates to spend more time in the applicant process than I had hoped for.
