Pros: Pretty easy ATS to utilize. Visually, it's very pleasing to the eye and relatively easy to navigate your way through main functions.

Cons: When I link a candidate or tag them sometimes i have some issues. It also does not help that their search functionality isn't the best either. Clumping together some of my candidates with same last names.

Pretty decent ATS. Have had a few technical issues but all were resolved withing 24 hours.

Pros: I like that the setup was very easy. I can drag resumes in to the database. My candidates can easily apply with the link to my website.

Cons: I wish you could text out of the system but other than that I can't think of anything else that is a con at the time.

My experience has been up and down with the software.

Pros: - Easy to use and maneuver around
- Parsing candidates resumes over from their resume formats almost perfectly into the ATS
- Using the software on my mobile phone while I'm out is very easy to pull up quick notes and add attachments
- Cost of the ATS compared to others and still getting a quality product
- Customer Support getting back to you in less than 24 hours

Cons: - Not able to use one centralized system for emailing and receiving emails as I had with Bullhorn
- Not being able to create hierarchy charts or flow of who reports to whom
- International phone numbers or locations are not defined in the ATS

Overall: Keeping a database of candidates, tracking flow of each candidate through the hiring process, tracking notes of conversations.

Cons: As of yet, Crelate has continued to update the application so I really don't have anything negative to report.

Pros: It's versatility and customization options. I enjoy the ease of use and accessibility this software provides recruiters compared to dated systems like Bullhorn.

Cons: I don't really like the color scheme you're using now for reporting - the brown, green, and grey are not attractive or appealing colors.

I have used the product for about the last 5 months. It is very easy to use and understand.

Pros: I enjoy the extension a lot, as well as the actual UX on the homepage. Colors are nice and easy to see. I think it's very functional and does it's job very well for our unique situation

Cons: Sometimes I find the UI to either be confusing or messy, but that's my own bias against having to click in and out of windows. Sometimes it takes a few more steps to find information than I think is needed.

Overall: Our recruiting firm works with a number of different clients, operating under the clients brand instead of our own, and we're happy that crelate allows us to have our own portal with so many companies and roles to fill.

Easy to use, clear, well-thought out ATS.

Cons: I wish it was easier to input actual data for contractors; to be able to enter what the actual contractor is getting paid and what the bill rate is to show the delta on the profit side.

I also wish I was able to input more stages in the recruiting process and not be limited to the number (forget the number)

Overall: Easy to track my client's and job orders, along with being able to track my candidate progress.

Overall: I like that I can find applicants to hire in a clear concise format that is easy to navigate. With the software tracking the date the resume is receives, allows me to keep track of where I left off when I am reviewing applicants. I also like the Dashboard that shows me a scale of applicants applied, rejected, in process and so on.

Pros: I like how you can move from one page to another so easily. When you are looking at a candidate's resume for a keyword (pressing CTRL-F), and then click another candidate, it will automatically pull up their resume and search for the same. It is also very easy to filter through to see what activity is specifically mine.

Cons: I wish there were more individual customization options like colors for activities; I would also like the "duplication" system to improve as it has a lot of false positives. Lastly, a feature that allows for mass emails would be helpful as well.

Pros: What I like most about the software is ease of use. Without any training, it was the most intuitive and logical ATS's we vetted before purchasing. We looked at PC Recruiter, Zoho, BrightMove and a few others. Being former Bullhorn users, our bar was high. Crelate is better. Everything is simpler and faster.

Cons: There is nothing that comes to mind. ATS software applications all try to accomplish the same thing but Crelate does it in a way which is customer focused.

Overall: We were quickly able to organize candidates and potential business leads.

Pros: The ease of use and intuitive interface allows new users to quickly adapt, reducing onboarding and integration of team members. Crelate's licensing/pricing and provisioning model provides the flexibility to run my business as I need to, vs other ATS providers who force me to make decisions based on their terms. The metrics available are endless and are quickly and easily accessible. The data provided empowers me to track performance and lead more effectively. Crelate's ridiculously easy customization across the board ensures that Crelate molds to our needs without headaches. Crelate's highly flexible search capabilities also allow us to find what we need, wherever it is, quickly and easily. Data capture, either manually, automated or parsed is also fast and effective. Training and support are always rapid and just a phone call or e-mail away. Crelate's team is continually rolling out new features and updates in a manner that is not at all disruptive and always adds value. I'm afraid if I say that Crelate has been WELL WORTH our investment that they'll start to raise prices!!! Though it is true. As one who has investigated seemingly countless ATS, Crelate stands out as the BEST I've ever seen.

Cons: There are only two cons. The first is inherent in any great and robust ATS and is NOT really a Con: there are so many features and capabilities I have no doubt that we are underutilizing the power of this tool. While their training and support tools are fabulous I just haven't had the time to really DIVE IN to maximize the capabilities of Crelate.
The second is a Con: Crelate has room to improve its ability to manage duplicates. While user error certainly contributes to the creation of duplicates, I have seen other ATS' with better duplicate management tools. That said, when a duplicate is detected it is extremely easy to seamlessly and quickly merge the duplicate records.

Overall: Crelate has streamlined our business process and workflows and empowered us to grow.

I haven't been this impressed with a company in many years. The interface is modern and user friendly

Comments: I'd recommend this product to any serious recruiter.

Pros: I love the drag and drop features. It's very easy to use, even for a beginner. Very little issues with downtime.

Cons: Some of the functionality is a little funky, meaning that it's pre-laid out in a way that isn't idea for my particular business.

Met my needs as a small, independent search exec.

Pros: Easy to use, strong customer support, team was very responsive to my needs in setting up the system and helping me customize specific reports as required by clients.

Cons: While I'm not using the product anymore, I would have liked stronger integration with LinkedIn , to be able to download and parse profiles. This may have been improved since I last used the system.

Overall: It carried me through several years as a independent practitioner prior to joining my current firm. Dramatically reduced the manual labor required to track candidates and generate reports.

Reasonably easy to use; would have preferred more in depth training at the outset.

Pros: Once I learned the basics, I did find it relatively easy to use which was helpful. It is relatively easy to track individuals.

Cons: Not necessarily as intuitive as would be ideal. I frequently don't know what I don't know. It would be helpful to have a better understanding at the outset.

Crelate is Pretty Great!!

Comments: Great company with strong support to quickly solve any issues or questions. Easiest system to train on as its intuitive functions are picked up within a day or two of using. Love the ability to sync it with multiple job boards, google platform and website. Affordable system that will make your team better in communication and organization.

Pros: 1. Exceptionally intuitive - easily navigated with one or two days of use 2. Very Cost Friendly for the system you get compared to others that aren't as functional 3. Strong Support - quick and accurate support staff to help with questions and issues.

Cons: 1. Reports could have more options as standard reports instead of having to write them up 2. Mining data could be more flexible in how you sort it for reports 3. Company data such as address and POC should transfer to "new jobs" without having to rewrite it everytime

I am new to the recruiting industry. I found Crelate very easy to use.

Pros: The ease to import contacts from LinkedIn, building customer lists, adding jobs and bulk emailing. I also found the customer service desk reacted quickly to questions I had, tier responses were useful and timely.

Cons: I would like to see training seminars, so I can learn the full benefits of Crelate from people who have success and experience using the product.

Job candidates is a bit messy. The way they list from the jobs page doesn't make sense.

Overall I have had a great experience with Crelate but a few items can still be improved upon.

Pros: Ease of use on most functions. There are ways to mainstream the process or automate items so that makes my life easier.

Cons: There are SO many items that you can manipulate and change that it almost gets overwhelming. I also dislike that sometimes the "self-help" articles that are on their help website either don't work, don't make sense or I can't find one for the exact item I am working on. This then means that I have to wait to speak with a rep. I dislike that I can't get my answers answered immediately. This system takes awhile to build out!

Overall: This has made tracking our progress easier but we are still trying to build it out due to there being SO many functions.

Pros: For a recruiter, it's always about the interface and workflow. Can I quickly see and get to all the information I need to multitask with multiple clients and candidates.? The answer in the case is a resounding YES! Crelate does that far better than everyone else for me. The second thing it does better than any ATS I have ever used is automation of repetitive tasks. You can actually customize your own workflow. The interface allows you to drag and drop between stages. It will send out automated, customized emails at each stage of the recruiting process. It allows me to work quickly, efficiently, the way I want to work. It's a beautiful thing. The third thing is a reactive mobile app that works very well - it adapts to each device I use, tablet, phone, etc. One last thing, I have never in my 25-year career using ATS software had a company be so responsive to requests for help and new features. A few weeks ago (weeks!) I asked for a new feature that required the developers to make changes to their mobile app. It was a very important change for my business, but because it involved changes to an app, I assumed it would take months to get on the list of changes for their next release. I am happy to say that I was wrong, and their quick response was the best service I have ever experienced from an ATS software firm.

Overall: This is the very best ATS software on the market for a contingency or retained search firm.

For a small operation this software is very cost effective being able to do most of what the big expensive packages can but at a much cheaper price.

Pros: very functional. Can do most functions expensive packages can do. Better than any other package I have found in its price range.

Cons: UI needs improving. Sometimes a bit confusing to use. Should have more obvious GUIs for things like importing new candidates and search functions.

Pros: Clean, intuitive interface and workflow. Drag and drop functionality. Easy integration with external websites. Customer support is excellent.

Cons: Mobile app is not acceptable as it does not have the ability to email a candidate resume to a client. This is a tremendous problem as this is one of the most important features of a mobile ATS app in the first place. If you are out of the office and you have an emergency (a client needs a resume of a candidate ASAP) you literally can't send one. The lack of this feature could literally cost me thousands of dollars. It is a recruiting mobile app feature that has to be there. So, I looked elsewhere.

Comments: I have uses Crelate for the last 2 months, I compared it with other systems and I was hooked after the demo. The interface is much more modern than on other platforms. It is priced right for as I start my business. I felt the customer service/ the rep has been going the extra mile to have me set up. Great system for recruiters getting started

Pros: - easy to use - Up to speed in 2 days max - interfaced with gmail and linkedin - Great customers service - Interface is brand new, modern

Cons: - Some fields do not populate automatically - The upload of the resume could be optimized, the name is missing and you would have to re type, not a bid deal though

Pros: Visually appealing and many features. The resume and other document upload feature is nice and seeing the full resume on one click is helpful. It syncs with Outlook for email which is useful.

Cons: Many layers to each main area so can be somewhat difficult in the beginning to understand where to find all components. The duplicate candidate feature is a good feature but a clunky operation.

Pros: Crelate has been a great way to organize our recruiting process. It is easy to see which step each candidate is in. Our recruiting process has several steps and before Crelate it was very hard to keep up with candidates. Now I can quickly see how many people I have interviewing or phone screening for each position with a quick glance.

Cons: It feels like Crelate was created for recruiting agencies rather than recruiting departments. We do not operate like an agency so I have had to create work-arounds for a small portion of what we do.

Comments: We all want a software package that is flexible enough that we can adjust it to our business and not have to adjust our business to the software package, this is that tool. Within 1 hour of my using the software, I had a listing of clients already imported, candidate resumes parsed and was ready to go with the various workflows that I needed. Even better is the support team they have in place "Client Success" is their title - and it's appropriate! Exceptional people supporting a great product.

Pros: Easy to learn Can easily be customized (by YOU the end user!) Incredibly short learning curve to be functional. Exceptional support team!

Cons: It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the bigger tools - but doesn't have the rigidity or long learning curve either!

Recommendations to other buyers: It should be on your short list of considerations!

Pros: I like that I can stay organized with my data: searches, candidates, clients. And I like that my partner and I can both access this data from our phones or computers.

Cons: I don't like the limitations, but am hoping Crelate will work through them soon! No software is perfect. I prefer Crelate to building my own software... something I have done before (never again)!

Overall: I own a boutique domestic help recruiting agency in Miami. I am a new user and am still getting accustomed to it. So far I like Crelate and I think it will serve our purposes well. The customer service team is excellent.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be patient. Takes a little time to learn and get used to it, but once you're 'humming' you're golden.

Comments: General: Best part is the customer service team. They are super helpful and patient. And, they are willing to take our comments and feedback to the developers. For the most part I like the software and I think I'll like it more as I grow more accustomed to it.

Pros: I have a boutique domestic help recruiting firm. Crelate helps keep us organized so that my partner and I can tag-team on our searches, and stay on the same page all the time. I love that we can use it from our phones or computers. I love that we can store all our data in their, work flow, status of each search, each candidate, each client at any moment.

Cons: There are a lot of limitations I'm hoping Crelate will work through. I still have to use a lot of other external documents. I am still learning how to use the software. Some of it is intuitive, some of it is confusing and hard to learn. And sometimes things don't work as they should. But the developers and customer service team works with us every day to crank through it. We are new users and almost 'humming'.

Cons: It would be great to have "required fields", forcing users to enter information on critical areas; and it would be helpful to limit users to specific pick lists, and not enable them to enter any data they want

Overall: Xtra Effort Solutions, Inc. is a 16 year Sales, Sales Engineering, and Customer Success recruiting firm for enterprise technology companies. We have a national reach.

The diverse nature of our client requirements make it imperative that we are agile when responding to super specific requests around candidate tenure, technical skills, industry knowledge, performance metrics, location, career stability, and countless other soft traits. Our challenge, as a contingency based search firm, is providing enough "high touch" service to satisfy each client's nuanced request, while maintaining enough velocity and volume to continuously feed the candidate and client pipeline.

A flexible, reliable, and powerful Applicant Tracking System is critical to achieve these goals. Crelate was suggested to Xtra Effort by another small recruiting firm. We were hesitant to consider change because of the fear of disruption associated with the data conversion and learning curve. However, these fears were alleviated when speaking with Crelate, mostly for two reasons:

1) Crelate's technology is intuitive, flexible, and really well designed
2) Crelate's people are SUPER responsive, thoughtful, creative, and resourceful

Crelate made Xtra Effort feel as though we were a 1000 employee prospect. They made every perceived major hurdle go away through listening and making resourceful suggestions.

We agreed to convert to Crelate and had the same favorable experience during the conversion and training period, and with the post conversion support organization.

Mostly importantly, Xtra Effort users are now offering unsolicited comments about productivity gains.

Xtra Effort would definitely suggest Crelate if you feel a need for improved value and function from your ATS technology AND vendor team. It is fantastic to truly valued as a customer by the vendor who is most critical to supporting our efforts. Contingency recruiting is challenging, it is nice to know that such an important partner cares and "has your back"

Recommendations to other buyers: yes

Comments: Crelate is easy to use. For the price, I would recommend it.

Pros: I like being able to forward emails to crelate and it adds them to the client or candidate profile. It parses word resumes by sending an email to the Crelate. It is also easy to make changes to the hiring process in the tool.

Cons: I wish I could forward PDF's and it would automatically upload information.

Comments: I have been using Crelate Talent for almost a year, and I am very happy with it. It's not perfect,no tool is - but it is pretty adaptable and customizable for such an affordable product. Customer service is responsive and helpful, and they have made some great improvements in functionality in recent updates.

Pros: Great value, highly customizable.

Cons: I wish it integrated more smoothly with LinkedIn.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it out! It had a bit of a learning curve (at least for me - coming from another in-house developed ATS prior to this one), but once I got the hang of it, I've been impressed.

Comments: The best part about Crelate is their support. Whenever I do have a question they are incredibly responsive. Recently I re-branded my firm (new name, new website) and their support engineer worked for hand in hand with me to make sure everything launched without a hitch. The product is terrific and it does what I need an Applicant Tracking System to do. It doesn't get bogged down with stuff I don't need. Also, they really listen. On several occasions, I have made suggestions for improvements and they built it into their next quarterly release.

Pros: The support and the customer service.

Cons: There are some integrations to third party products that bigger ATS products offer that Crelate does not yet, but I think in time they will add the ones that are most valuable.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a small recruiting shop, this is the best solution out there for you.

Comments: Our team spent months searching for an ATS/CRM. Finally we came to a point and gave up. We chose a 20-year-old system that most headhunters use because we were desperate. It was the worst experience, 10 clicks to get to a simple step. We gave up and lost many houses and hundreds of dollars. Back on the search, we stumbled across CHELATE! Amazing customer service and ease of use! Of course there is no perfect solution. But these guys are amazing simply because they are USA based and when you email them RESPOND. Give these guys a shot....They won't disappoint!

Pros: ease of use robust automation customer service is 5 star

Cons: Platform seems to be newer then most other systems so some baby bugs but they fix them as soon as you mention them. This is to be expected. With any ATS. But these guys are USA based and have amazing support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Vet as many as you can like we did. Dont settle for less!

Comments: When I saw the product in the demo I was thrilled because it's the kind of product that you can use without training. Your home page is an overview of your openings and the candidate in your funnel. Everything is intuitive, very easy to understand and you can easily see or guess where to go to look for data and take action. I've seen other products that are not as modern or up to date with old platforms/features that are very clunky and tedious to use for twice the price and more. It's very easy to customize, both data input fields and reporting. So far, I'm happy to have chosen it. This is an up and coming product that definitely deserves a try.

Pros: Simple and attractive user interface Good support

Cons: Have not had any issues yet

Comments: We use Crelate as our Applicant Tracking system. Our first experience with an ATS was with Sendouts and it was a great system until it was bought by Bullhorn and was no longer being supported. We did switch to another system in between Sendouts and Crelate and that was a disaster, like throwing candidates into a big black hole, never to see them surface again. Anyway, I digress, Crelate has been phenomenal for our small staffing business. It is robust, intuitive and does more than we could have hoped for. We are approaching our first year anniversary with Crelate and we could not be happier with the system; we should have switched long ago.

Pros: Intuitive, robust, makes sense, works like a recruiter works. The support is super responsive, timely and concerned about making everything work just right.

Cons: All software programs have glitches, Crelate is no exception. But so far, no cons that I can list as cons.

Recommendations to other buyers: This has been one of the best decisions we made for our business.

Comments: Generally pleased with Crelate, customer service is excellent. Product is sophisticated and can appear complex. We are a two person operation and therefore do not use many of the features which would be of benefit to a larger office envionment. We are still a bit 'dogged' with client duplications and loss of client phone numbers from the migration. System has been 95%+reliable

Cons: Overall a solid product. Crelate continues to add features and address/implement suggestions from users.

Recommendations to other buyers: When evaluating potential solutions, Crelate should certainly be a product included in the process.

Never thought I'd say, "I love my ATS!"

Overall: Crelate is highly intuitive. It has all of the features I wanted, and more. It has saved me tons of time, in comparison to my last ATS. The new features they are adding are great. Customer support has been excellent and the Help area in the ATS generally answers most of my questions. If not, they are quick to reply. I highly recommend this system!

A Happy Crelate User!

Pros: It's an outstanding project management tool. I can track all my open projects on one page, and track every candidate through the recruiting process. Crelate is an incredible value, given that free updates are released periodically and I always feel I have current features.

Cons: Tough to say. The migration from my old database wasn't easy, but I found technical support to be outstanding.

Overall: Crelate has been my CRM for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. I looked at many packages before I chose Crelate and found it to be packed with features at a great value. I particularly like how I can manage and track all of my projects on one page, with a snapshot of the progress of every candidate. I also am excited about the periodic updates to the software. They listen to their users and offer upgrades for free. I've already recommended it to one colleague and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

Recommendations to other buyers: Feel free to compare it to some of the big name packages... you'll find Crelate to be cost effective, easily customized to your needs and a great way to manage your recruiting projects.

Comments: I transitioned from Sendouts to Crelate this summer. The support was seamless and using Crelate from day one has been a breeze. I love the ease of use, from posting a job to seeing the applications come into it and responding. All very easy.

Pros: Ease of use, adding candidates and the Linked In Chrome bar has been very cool.

Cons: Still trying to get a handle on searching for candidates, I had great codes in Sendouts and still struggle with how it translates into Crelate. This is probably more user error. Also, clients and candidates were separate files in Sendouts but all info was on each file. In Crelate, they came over as separate files so I am still cleaning up duplicates that are not easy to see.

Recommendations to other buyers: If they don't have a feature listed or presented when speaking with them, ask. They are rolling out new features all the time and are very receptive to ideas.

Pros: Ease of use, the system conversion was easy too.

Cons: Not sure if it is them but most likely me, still trying to figure out how to search more effectively.

Overall: Crelate is one of the best recommendations I've received. It's easy to use, cost effective and great support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check their refs and you'll be convinced. I searched people on my own and found them on Linked In, everyone I contacted said they loved them.

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: lack of interface with Mac Mail and Mac Outlook.

Overall: My company did its first ATS implementation 4 months ago and there is no looking back. We were instantly more organized and efficient.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would like to remain in a single application to better manage the day's email and ATS vs. having multiple windows open. Work pace is too quick to be slowed down with bouncing back and forth between applications.

Comments: Not only is the company super responsive to support requests, they are also very tuned in to user suggestions. Each user is valued and respected. Some of my suggestions have ended up in one of their quarterly updates. They are always fine tuning and adding new features. While it does not have every bell and whistle it more than meets my needs and fits my budget. Excellent product.

Comments: I found crelate to have all the funtionality that I need, as a Search professional. I allows client and applicant tracking. mass emailing, and search. Super customizable. Company very eager to help and is constantly making improvements, based on Custoers feedback. Worth the cost.

Pros: Cost, and customizability.

Cons: Some of the ability to get things fixed or up and running Immediately. However the company is very responsive.

Recommendations to other buyers: Cant beat the price. and it functions, just like the bigger more expensive ATS, just not as many clicks.

Pros: easy to navigate

Cons: not the cheapest in the market, yet for a few cents a day it is worth it!

Overall: Have been in recruiting for 16+ years (have worked in a boutique firm and a top Ten global firm) and have used all sorts of candidate/client management systems. In my estimation this is the easiest and the most user-friendliest to navigate. The interface (and your ability to customize it) is awesome!! A little more expensive than some--but well worth it in terms of efficiency.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the test--these guys are really customer-service oriented and will do most anything to keep a customer happy.

Comments: I have had some success with the program, the only real issues I had was with password resets and not having a link to go to if I forget my password.

Pros: I can create my own applicant questioner easily, I can connect my jobs to my web site. I can track an monitor status on each job right at my home page.

Cons: Training is offered however I can not always make the training sessions because I work two jobs and the times offered are during business working hours. There has been some difficulty navigating the program due to missing out on the training, but I have for the most part been able to pick it up along the way.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend this product to start up's, its affordable, and easy to get around when connecting to web-sites and posting job's.

Comments: A candidate follow-up system where we can tell when was the last action, appointment, or task made. The record tracking system is incredible, email journaling saves time, calendar is organized and efficient. Crelate combines all the best quality elements of other ATS/CMR into one unified piece. We are a Staffing Agency that needed a software that provided full analytics, recorded every single task, visually showed us the stages of each candidate/client and job opportunity. Connecting to other sources such as job boards, your email, and social aspects make your posts consistent and painless.

Pros: ¿ Organized ¿ Visually Legible ¿ Easy to use ¿ Affordable for Start-Up Companies ¿ Extremely user friendly ¿ Impeccable customer support ¿ Customizable to your liking

Cons: ¿ The Mobile Application can use a few updates, overall- this product is close to perfection.

Comments: It's true, all ATS' are not created equally, however, most give you the same or very similar features and functionality. That's why pricing, product support, and the relationship developed between yourself as the customer, and all of those in the sellers company that you become involved with is critical to making a buying decision! Everyone that I've had the pleasure of dealing with at Crelate has been very friendly and very helpful!! Crelate is a great product with many cool updates still to come - very exciting!! It is very user friendly and HIGHLY customize-able (is that word?!)!! Very easy to learn and become comfortable with - and I've worked with probably 10 ATS' throughout my years of recruiting. In fact, the few times I've had questions about how to do something, it was simply "me" overthinking it and making it harder than it was! Their tech support was very quick to guide me to the right solution, and in a very friendly manner.

Pros: Easy to learn / Easy to make customization changes / Easy to import resumes / Easy to load jobs and post to your webpage directly from Crelate / Mobile access /

Cons: Currently there is no highlight feature for key words on a resume, but this is coming very soon! Candidates and Client contacts are all listed in one group as "Contacts", they can be sorted, but they aren't kept separate.

Recommendations to other buyers: Shop around, don't settle for the name-brand because you'll just end up paying more for a tired old dinosaur and missing out on the cool new features of the newer products, that also cost much less!!

Pros: The product is great - useful and a great value. It is highly customizable given its relative affordability, with so many built-in tools. As important to me, the customer service is quick and helpful. The built in support is usually sufficient to answer basic questions, but the personal support is responsive when you need it. I haven't taken advantage of as much of the onboarding support and training as I should have, but what I have used has been helpful.

Cons: There are perhaps a few really useful tools I wish this product had - the one I miss most is a "batch update" feature - the ability to update a large number of existing contact records (say, from a list of people who attended an event, or something similar). As it currently is, you have to add that info to each attendee - you can only load many records with information if they are new contacts. I also find the duplicate detection feature a bit sensitive. Some names are simply common, and if I give the records middle initials, nicknames, and/or email or phone numbers that are different, I would like to have the option of accepting the duplicate (rather than cancelling out or turning duplicate detection off - I want to be alerted to the possibility of a duplicate, but I'd like to be able to override it if I'm sure it's two people with the same name).

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the free trials for the products you're considering! Try to do the things you will need to do regularly, and see if it's a good fit for you before you commit. It's not just a matter of whether a software is capable of doing what you need, but also whether it is intuitive for you HOW it does it.

Pros: Crelate has all of the features I need to store data, move candidates through the pipeline, and search both resumes and notes or tags. I've had great experiences with training on the product, as well as customer support when I've had questions.

Cons: Having to click "Save" after I make changes. The level of customization is also a double-edged sword. It's wonderful to make the system fit my company's process, but also can get complicated to make it make sense for everyone on my team.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep an open mind to changing your workflow. There are many features that can improve on your process instead of trying to make the features fit your current process.

If you can afford the cost, it's a great tool.

Pros: The Crelate support team is awesome! Very responsive, easy to work with and they seem genuinely interested in helping. It's really easy to use! I had no problems uploading 1000's of contacts and candidates. Creating email templates and customizing the layout to fit my needs has been easy as well. Integrating it with Outlook is great for tracking communication.

Cons: I am still new to the software and I haven't done any real training but I'm not crazy about the search tool and "tagging" everything.

Recommendations to other buyers: Everyone's needs and preferences are different. Software Advice did a good job of matching me to 3 companies to evaluate. I had experience with some others so I had a baseline for comparing. I chose Crelate because I liked the layout and functionality and everyone I talked to seemed genuine.

Pros: Everything about Crelate is a breeze to use. The UI is so intuitive. I love that you can attach photos of candidates to their profiles and Crelate allows you to search LinkedIn and social media right from the candidates profile. The drag and drop feature is also very easy to use. Their app is fabulous. I can actually fully function just using my phone.

Cons: No complaints. Crelate has built a stand out ATS. I really can't think of anything they could do to improve their software....it's that good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure to ask for a demo and if the company doesn't offer one....run. We had a terrible experience with Bullhorn before finding Crelate. World's apart in terms of quality and customer service.
