Kenexa 2x BrassRing

Overall Satisfaction

  • Kenexa's "Data Insight Tool" allows for real time metrics to be collected and shared to make decisions that impact our company.
  • Applicant flow data is easy to track as the HR Status options are customizable to adopt to specific work processes.
  • Kenexa customer service allows for an expert technical liaison to help consult any and all implementation decisions that my company decides to pursue.
  • RAM Trigger logic allows for optimal automation of the transactional recruiting processes.
  • Talent Records can be located with Boolean search logic which aids in the recruitment process.
  • Kenexa "Agency Manager" for Third Party Agencies is a primitive tool and could be enhanced to help manage agency usage.
  • System outages are particularly troublesome for our international locations as the generally occur in the middle of their work day.
  • Work Bench Training is only held several times a year and is instrumental to a company's ability to adopt BrassRing as their applicant tracking system.
  • Kenexa BrassRing has allowed improvements in quality of hire, time to fill, and cost per hire for Fluor's offices and projects.
  • Through the collection of quarterly metrics, we distribute a Recruiting Analytics report to communicate our business performance to executive leadership.
  • Kenexa provides a global platform to help recruitment teams in multiple work locations work together towards a common goal.
I am confident that the Kenexa product will continue to evolve to meet the needs of our business in an ever changing work environment. The affiliation with IBM also plays a factor as we have a long standing successful relationship with IBM products. We will be looking to integrate other Kenexa products in the near future to streamline our HR processes.
I would recommend that any colleague should complete the due diligence process of examining all products to find the right fit for their company culture. Some of the questions I would ask in a search are: 1-What does the customer service process look like? 2-Who will be performing any enhancements or alterations to my instance of the product? 3-How will this product integrate with existing HR systems already employed by my company.
