Overall Satisfaction with Technomedia Talent Management Suite

Technomedia was being used by my organization as our applicant tracking system, we recently moved to a new system about 6 months ago though. Currently, only the human resources and talent management teams have access to it, not the entire company. The business problem it solves is the control of candidate flow and efficiency of the hiring and recruiting process, etc.
  • The commands and controls are fairly user friendly. This is a positive because as recruiters we don't want to waste time having to learn odd or awkward controls, we just want to intuitively click.
  • The original implementation process was fairly seamless according to industry standards. This made for a smoother rollout, testing, and implementation phase. We didn't waste too much time with overly complicated technical issues, etc.
  • The reporting function needs to be vastly improved. You can run the most basic reports, but if you want to get more granular it requires customization, extra fees, and involving a developer. This piece should be made easier.
  • The lag time between load screens, clicking new screens, etc. was very slow at times. We don't believe this was a connectivity issue, rather something on Technomedia's end.
  • The positive impact of being able to manage candidates and help the overall recruiting process has been great.
  • The addition of new users or customizing other features has proved cumbersome, expensive, and requires additional resources.
Technomedia stacks up below the other listed programs. It may solve the bare minimum of your issues, but when it comes to solving more complex issues and processes, it lacks. When you want to add additions or customize things, the process is very costly and labor intensive as well. If it were priced lower, it would make more sense, but there are much better solutions out there.
Recruiting and human resources is a good use for this tool. To some degree, reporting is fairly appropriate as well, unless you want super detailed reports, then I would say no. Anything related to managing candidate flow and making the recruitment process easier is where this tool is best used, upgrades need to be made so it's more useful in other areas before rolling out.
